Hey there! I'm a newbie on BiggerPockets from Lexington, KY. I was looking for book recommendations on flipping houses. If anyone has any that they have read or just recommend, that would be very helpful!
You can't go wrong with J Scott's Book on Flipping Houses and the related Book on Estimating Rehab Costs. Both are indispensable for understanding the rehab portion of flipping, and J also gives good guidance on finding deals.
I would also recommend Mindy Jensen's How To Sell Your House to understand the full process of optimizing the sale process, which can also help you in the renovation process as you better understand the prime path to selling the home.
@Mary Smith You could also look at BRRRR investing by David Green as well. It's a good read. Good luck on starting your real estate adventure!
I would suggest more mindset books as well. Learning the tactic on how to do something is great but first you need to figure out why you're doing something and what is the goal and the reason that you're doing it. New paragraph. I recommend the e-myth by Michael Gerber, 10x by Grant Cardone ,sell or be sold by Grant Cardone, eat the frog brian tracy
Hi @Mary Smith - Don't have any book recommendations on flips but just wanted to say hello and welcome to BiggerPockets from Gratz Park in Downtown Lexington!
My favorite is The Real Estate Rehab Investing Bible by Paul Esajian. I've read quite a few but I keep coming back to this one. He outlines some great systems to help save you time and headache.
BRRRR Method book.
@Will Fraser , @Christopher Leet , @Steve Rozenberg , @Bryan Noth , @Chelsea Ross & @Jaylen Ingram - Thank you all so much for those wonderful book recommendations. I'll definitely take a look at all those books, looks like I've got my entire summer reading list right here!
I have to say that I am so overwhelmed by all the help and support that I've received; never really thought I would get so many people reach out on this post. I'm so glad to have joined BiggerPockets!
