The financial world we live in is just as wild, if not more, than the mountains and woods we walk through. We are told that the fundamentals of our economy are strong, but we can feel that something is wrong. My unique financial background and survival passion make Financial Survivalist and excellent place to learn and share.

Wall Street Journal Complete Real Estate Investing Guidebook



Some poeople think the real estate market is hopeless. I say, "You can make money in any market." So if you're wanting to jump into real estate investing the first thing you should do is become an expert. Even in the best markets I have seen poeple make horrible real estate decisions. By educating yourself you can manage your risk.

The first place you should start educating yourself if in the library. WSJ Investing Guidebook is by far my favorite real estate book for beginer and experienced real estate experts. It has concervative, applicable and accurate advice. It is a quick read with easily undertable charts and diagrams to illustrate the principles.

This book is an excelent start to know what to look for, how to find it, and how to manage it. It covers a lot of principles that other books ignore. It also covers a lot of misunderstood principles and misconceptions about real estate.

Now a days, everyone has an oppinion. We are bombarded with endless ammounts of information and it is difficult to know what advice to filter out and what to heed. This is especially true of beginners that are just starting to learn. That is why I am careful to recommend books I think are a good use of your time.

This book is a must read and I would trust recommending this book to anyone that wants to get started in real estate. However, I wouldn't stop after reading this book. You must continue to educate yourself and seek out new resources. This is a perfect base for that continued learning.

9/10 stars
