What are your goals in real estate? If you’re like most, I’m guessing you’re wanting to get rich off of it. If you want to build wealth and become a millionaire through your portfolio of properties, then what better resource than a book called The Millionaire Real Estate Investor?
I’m always looking for more real estate books to absorb as much knowledge as I can, as well as get different viewpoints on how to build financial security. Not every person’s method that they teach in their book is within the means or abilities of every reader, so it is important to get different views on how to build your real estate portfolio to set it up for success. That’s why I absolutely love this book.
Want to Make Millions in Real Estate?
What I like most about this book by Gary Keller is that it isn’t just the teachings of one real estate expert. This is a compilation of wisdom from over 100 different investors who have made millions through their properties. They come from all walks of life and have different methods that brought them the success that they achieved with their smart investing. The book puts all the information out there in a straightforward manner that is easy to read and digest, and cuts out all the nonsense and gives you the proven strategies that real millionaires used to make their money.
The key teaching in this book is that you must have patience and perseverance in this industry. You aren’t going to make millions overnight, but if you put forth the strategies that they reveal and stick to it in the long-run, you can accomplish your goals. They lay it out in a manner that is available to everyone in all walks of life, no matter your current financial situation or prior experience (or lack of) in the real estate industry.
What You’ll Learn
The fundamentals that you’ll learn in this book include:
- Dispelling the myths that surround money and investing that often hold back people from trying in the first place
- How to get into the mindset of a millionaire
- The criteria to help you identify a great real estate opportunity, and how to avoid bad deals
- How to get the best possible deal by focusing on key terms in a transaction
- Forming a team that will help you achieve better success
- Models and strategies that experts use to keep track of their portfolio, manage their finances, grow their network, and get leads for new deals
While you’ll learn all of those things in this book, another thing that sets it apart from the others I’ve read is that it is very motivational. There is less substance in terms of investment strategy and a lot more content on getting into the right mindset. Just know that going into it, if you’re looking to purchase this book. If you are looking more for the fundamentals of real estate, I suggest this book. If you want a more in-depth look at the financials and math behind a great real estate deal, then this book is for you.
