Summary

It’s time to stop just thinking, talking, or dreaming about the future real estate investing can give you. It’s time to start doing...and this audiobook will show you exactly where to start.

Everyone knows real estate investing can be a powerful way to build wealth and achieve true financial freedom. But because each person’s journey is different, knowing the first steps to take can be challenging.

That’s why two of the biggest names in the real estate world teamed up to create the most comprehensive manual ever written on getting started in the lucrative business of real estate investing. Josh Dorkin and Brandon Turner - longtime hosts of the world’s number-one real estate podcast, The BiggerPockets Podcast - give you an insider’s look at the many different niches and strategies that exist. Find which one works best for you, your resources, and your goals.

Unlike most traditional real estate guides, this one won’t tell you there is “one secret path” to real estate success. Instead, it dives into dozens of unique, life-changing quests and is packed with more than 40 real-life stories of how real estate investors are finding success in today’s economy.

What’s inside:

  • How to invest in real estate while working a full-time job
  • The truth about LLCs and corporations 
  • How to earn more at work (or on the side) so you can invest more 
  • Getting your spouse on board with real estate investing
  • Eight unique property types you can invest in today 
  • Eleven powerful strategies for building wealth through real estate
  • A total of 28 tested methods for finding great real estate deals
  • Partnerships, BRRRR investing, and other creative ways to fund your deals
  • And so much more!

not what I would have expected.

I bet Bigger Pockets will be for sale within about one year from now. They have jumped the shark. The book was/is an infomercial for their website and publications. I lost count as to how many times I heard "BiggerPockets."
It's all about the money.
I have listened to every single podcast bigger pockets, and the money show has ever produced. I own every book they have written. I love Scott's book (set for life) and regularly sell it through word of mouth. This book isn't one I will recommend to anyone, ever.

Great intro to Real Estate investing!

It's a lot to take in but this book seems like a perfect introduction on how to get into Real Estate investing! I'll be listening to this at least 1 or 2 more times.

Wish Brandon read it!!

This book is a great listen for someone that hasn’t been following bigger pockets or listened to the podcasts.. I’d skip it if you have been listening to the podcasts. This book feels like a highlight reel of the stories that are from the podcast interviews. Brandon and josh should do a reading of it!! Overall, a great place to start but there it doesn’t dig too far below the surface.

The best of BiggerPockets!

Had a blast and learned a ton listening to the BiggerPockets podcast! Started on episode 1 and listened on 2x speed to catch up while taking copious notes on tips and resources.

For those of you who want 99% of the same info in a much more consolidated and simpler format, this book is perfect. Highly recommend this as a first step for those trying to get the 1000 foot view before diving in to real estate investing!

another informative book from biggerpockets.

Can't say I'm a fan of the narrator at all, he may be an acquired taste. The book itself, is a broad overview of RE Investing, which is a good thing - so don't expect much step by step hand holding in the weeds. Overall, very informative and practical not necessarily motivational. Recommended.
