I started Invest Four More in March of 2013. Over the last three years, I have written hundreds of articles and written a few books as well. Writing a book was something I always wanted to do, but never thought I could do until a couple of years ago. It seems like such a daunting task to write hundreds of pages, edit the book, and then get it published. It is a daunting task, but with sites like Amazon and their self-publishing tools, it is much easier to publish a book than ever before. My new book: Build a Rental Property Empire: The no-nonsense book on finding deals, financing the right way, and managing wisely is available now on Amazon.
Why has this book taken the longest of any of my books to write?
This is by far the longest and most detailed book I have ever written. It comes in at 346 pages and goes over just about everything I know about rental properties. I wanted to write a book that shows people exactly why rentals are so awesome, and the steps on how to make buying rentals a reality. I loved the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, because it gets you motivated to invest better and build a better life. However, I thought Rich Dad, Poor Dad, was very lacking on the details of how to invest and build a better life. My books are not just motivation, but give the details and steps on how to succeed as well. Below are a some of the topics covered:
- Why rental properties will help you retire faster than other investments
- The risks of investing in rentals
- How to determine what a good rental property is
- How to determine what type of rental to buy
- How to get a great deal on properties
- How to finance rentals, even if you have more than 4 or more than 10
- How to invest in rentals with less cash
- How to repair and maintain properties
- How to manage rentals or find a property manager
- What are the best exit strategies
- How to buy rental properties when your market is too expensive
I go into a lot of detail on all of these subjects and it is available in paperback now, and will be available as an eBook later today (March 28th).
The price is only $9.99 for the paperback version, which is 50 percent off what the price will be in a few days. I make about 46 cents per book when it is priced this low. That is quite a deal when you consider similar books are over $20 and I don’t think any of them are as good as this one.
The Kindle version is avaiapable now and can be found here for $2.99: Kindle version

If you buy a copy of the book, please leave me a review on Amazon. The more reviews I get, the more the book is promoted, and the more people I can educate about real estate investing.

What are my future real estate book plans?
I am in the process of re-writing my real estate agent book: How to Make it Big as a Real Estate Agent. This book will be much longer, more detailed and available in paperback as well. I am also writing a book with J. Scott, on how to negotiate real estate deals. J. Scott was one of my first podcast guests, is an awesome flipper and is a best-selling author. I am a best-selling author as well, but it is much easier to get to that status writing non-fiction books about real estate, than it is to write the great American novel. If you are wondering why so many people claim to be best-selling authors, it is because the term can be used for each niche and category of books available. Someone who gives away 1,000 free books, could technically call themselves best-selling. I am not trying to take anything away from J Scott, because he has sold a ton of books, but other real estate authors tend to use the term very loosely.
I have also started to write a book that would be fiction. The book is about a fictional character who uses real estate to build themselves a better life. This book will not be done anytime soon, as I have never written fiction before and I have a lot of learning to do. It is something that I think would be fun and possibly more engaging than reading about how to buy or finance properties. I personally think the education system in our country is lacking in a lot of areas. Money management, financial planning, investing are topics that are rarely covered in school. I think it would be awesome to write a book that would be entertaining and educational as well, to people who may not have much of an interest in real estate.
Build a Rental Property Empire, was written to give as much information as I could about investing in rentals. It started out as a re-write of one of my other books, but changed so much in the process and became so much more, it had to be a book of its own. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you become a smarter and more confident investor.
