My List of Best Real Estate Investing Books

2 Replies

-Hello Fellow Investors,

I wanted to make a list of the most influential books of my career. I believe these to be the BEST real estate books out there. I would love to hear other peoples favorites.

The books by Bob Jones may be hard to find as they are out of print and rare, but every once in awhile they pop up on Amazon or Ebay and are well worth the wait.

In no particular order, here goes;

The Autobiography of William Zeckendorf - William Zeckendorf

Investing In Retail Property - Gary Rappaport

Jones on Property - Sir Bob Jones

My Property World - Sir Bob Jones

The Peebles Principals - Donahue Peebles

Trammel Crow, Master Builder - Robert Sobel

Powerhouse Principals - Jorge Perez

The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York - Robert A Caro

How I Turned $1,000 into a Million in Real Estate - William Nickerson

Let me know what you think.


@Dan Vleck , when I see these lists pop up now an again, I am always disappointed to see what is on them as I have usually read all of the books they list. I promise you, you will not be disappointed in these books that I have listed, these are the books that the big players have on their book shelf. I have read over 300 real estate investment books over the years and these ones always stick out in my mind as the best, yet are never spoke about on these forms.
