From the Author:

Can a book filled with numbers possibly be exciting? If youíre truly interested in real estate investing then you must first realize that investing in income properties is all about the numbers. Itís about discounted cash flow and rates of return and net operating income and cap rates. If you understand how these and other key concepts work, then youíre on your way to success Ė and thatís exciting.

I also believe you'll find the presentation of this material entertaining. I sought to write this in a way that would make it accessible to beginners and professionals alike.

I present more than three dozen key concepts and calculations. The book is peppered with "Rules of Thumb" that you can use as benchmarks when you evaluate potential investment properties. I also provide numerous examples and sample problems that you can use to check your understanding. As you progress youíll learn how to read a propertyís vital signs and how to put financial concepts to work for successful investing in real estate.

As important as these financial measures are, some can be tedious to perform manually. For those I show you how to use simple spreadsheet models to accomplish those tasks. I also provide you with a link to a special website we created where readers of the book can download many of these models as well as other valuable tools.

I hope that you'll find many good ideas here and that you'll use what you learn to help you make solid investment choices.
