The tricks and trades
Whether you are a pro or a beginner, real estate investing is a very lucrative job or hobby in terms of monetary gains and this is proven in many of these property resources and books. However, what is most important in property investments is not to seek a get rich quick mentality, but to keep your real estate assets that will build wealth over time by using other people’s money, especially through bank financing. There are many real estate resource books that have been written that outline the important steps that any real estate property investor must take in order to know exactly what they want out of property investments (i.e. their goals and objectives in getting out of the Rat Race as coined by Robert Kiyosaki, the author of “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and “Who Took My Money?”) as well as the correct process in finding, choosing and purchasing the right properties (as in the ACRE system developed by REIN’s president, Don Campbell in “Real Estate Investing in Canada” as well as Dolf de Roos in Rich Dad Advisor’s “Real Estate Riches”). Other important steps to conquer and learn through reading these property investment books and resources include managing and keeping properties as well as renovations and how to setup your property potentially for re-sale or equity financing through the banks. By mastering all of these steps in property investing, one can truly say that they are professional real estate investors who have a successful portfolio in building wealth by utilizing other people’s money.

What are the main tips you can gain through reading real estate books?
The most important part of investments (any kind really) is improving your education. Financial IQ is something that is lacking in school systems and curriculum today, and this is why it is important to arm yourself with the knowledge that will minimize your risk, time and money involved in the real estate market. If you are able to master these methods and processes in property investing, then you will be well on your way to creating more wealth then you could through working full-time as an employee or owning a small business. Things like cashflow monthly versus capital gains in equity are a constant reminder that the latter is more to do with getting rich quickly but does practically nothing for your long term net worth. Also, the differentiation between assets and liabilities is an important one, even if you are a real estate investor. Real estate investment property books and resources will also teach you ways to get out of the dreaded rat race (when you spin and spin, work and work, and you seem to be getting deeper into debt). Real estate investing is just one way to get out of the rat race and to have your money work for you, and reading books and resources is just the first step to improve your financial IQ and to increase your knowledge on reducing your own risk as well as to leverage the bank’s money to your advantage. Property investment books are readily available on the market, so pick one up and start your new life today.
