Published by Trafford
Success is something that we all wish to achieve. We all have potential to be successful, however potential is nothing if not realized and acted upon. We have all seen the infomercials, read the articles, and heard of people from all walks of life making hundreds of thousands of dollars through real estate. The key to their success in real estate is knowledge and action, not just understanding how to buy and sell property or how to word clauses. These are important, however true success will continue to elude you unless you truly understand the concepts involved in locating, analyzing and evaluating real estate properties. Within the context of these pages you will be enlightened on the concepts and techniques involved in properly locating real estate, analyzing your new found real estate and correctly evaluating that real estate. Any real estate investor, whether they are new to the field or have been active for many years will and can benefit from this book.
