Can I please get recommendations on books you have found helpful for apartment investing? Amazon has an abundance of material. Its hard to know which book is worth the time. I am trying to avoid something that's primarily hype and "why you should invest in real estate...its the best thing since sliced bread" feel to the book. I have the funds to buy apartment buildings, I am simply trying to make sure I don't have too big of a blind spot when I show up to make my first deal.
I liked the dummies books. Seriously they are good then The Best Ever Apartment Syndication book by Joe Fairless and Theo Hicks is good too
The Best Ever Apartment Syndication Book by Joe Fairless and Theo Hicks is the most comprehensive I'm come across by far. Definitely start there.
I think whatever you read first may have the biggest impact. I really like MF millions by Dave Lindal.
@Omer Zulfiqar I'm reading The Best Ever Apartment Syndication book by Joe Fairless and Theo Hicks right now, and it's great. It gives you actionable steps and exercises to get started.
Hi @Omer Zulfiqar ! Most of the books out there on Apartment investing have a ton of value to them. These are the books that I highly recommend and read myself ...
Apartment Syndication Made Easy - Vinney Chopra / Crushing it in apartments - Brian Murray / The Best Ever Apartment Syndication Book - Joe Fairless / Financial Freedom w/real estate investing - Michael Blank / Emerging Real estate markets and Multifamily Millions - Dave Lindahl.
There are many others that I can name as well.
@Omer Zulfiqar I liked The Best Ever Apartment Syndication Book-- it gives a great high level view of MF value-add investing while breaking down important concepts and actionable steps. All of the Fairless books are great... I'm now reading Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever. If you have a lot of funds, you may also want to consider investing in MF passively as an "active" passive investor so you can learn in a more hands-on way beyond books (which are valuable in their own right, but mixing up your approach may reduce blindspots further).
@Omer Zulfiqar Here are some of my favorites
-The ABC's of Real Estate Investing by Ken McElroy
-Best Ever Apartment Syndication Book by Joe Fairless (This is a very specific niche so this would only be if you're interested in Multifamily Syndication)
-Both Rod Khleif and Michael Blank have free E-books you can download (google it)
