The No-Nonsense Landlord
Building Wealth with Rental Properties
I would have run and purchased this if I were a librarian back in 1988. This really did have lots of good information for beginning in real estate. Sample contracts, estimates on costs, dealing with tenants, tax laws, etc. For 2010, this edition is just plain ridiculous. (The author updated this in 1993 and again in 2003) I cannot understand why some public libraries are holding on to this edition. Reminder folks, hoarding is NOT collection development. This material needs constant attention. New year’s resolution time: run to the business and real estate section and toss the old stuff. For those of us in public libraries that depend on property taxes for funding, you might find this first chapter title mildly amusing.
Here’s to wealth in the new year!
