I just finished reading What No One Ever Tells You About Investing in Real Estate from Robert J. Hill. Hill is a young real estate lawyer and investor fom Nashville, who gathered 112 war stories from area real estate investors.
It’s a super practical book filled with the dirt about real estate investing; the problem tenants, problem properties and other disasters.
Your imagination can run wild thinking up everything that can go wrong in real estate investing. Not anymore. This book details tons of things that can go wrong… and in the end, it’s not as bad as your worst fears.
After finishing the book, I have a good feel for what the day to day business of real estate investing is all about… and it’s seems very doable. I highly recommend this book.
