"Why I buy real estate instead of golfing" blends a contemporary humorous memoir with a self-help guide for buyers and sellers of real estate. The book covers stories of the school of 'hard knocks' and injects summary lessons and tip lists to help the reader avoid the author's mishaps.

The table of contents lets the reader quickly find a useful topic or tip section whether or not the reader chooses to read the book cover to cover.

This 40 year span of real estate adventures includes personal residential, commercial, residential rentals, and a multitude of experiences that are rarely cited in the many books on the topic of real estate. Topics include properly managing legal issues such as terms and conditions & leases, evaluating financial aspects, taking control of the inspection process, determining conditions before selling, construction tips, managing home inspection engineers, architects, contractors, and neighbors.

The memoirs really serve as powerful case studies. Though humorous, the fact is apparent that throughout the book, failing to follow some of the lessons and tips may be expensive and probably stressful, even for the toughest of readers.

Whether current home owners, first time buyers, professional investors, or realtors, this book will evoke some serious thought for the reader. As a relatively short book, the reader can enjoy some less-than-serious tales that will no doubt be helpful in remembering the lessons and tips and why they were written down. Ideally, the reader will have a smile on their face to go with the memory.

Make this book a must for your reference library and avoid the school of hard knocks in your future real estate adventures. Loan it to a friend and let them enjoy a good laugh at the author's expense. In either case, "Why I buy real estate instead of golfing" deserves a place on your shelf.

From the Author:

Being human, a lot is not said about the problems of owning property because no one likes to admit stupid mistakes. This book is admitting to nearly all of mine. As somebody once said, "If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?". Enjoy the humor! Use the Lessons & Tips!

About the Author:

About Len DeWeerdt The author attributes the book's basis to growing up in the "trusting" 1950's in a small central NY village. Trust in real estate is an oxymoron and yet after some twelve transactions, the author is still buying. Despite that fact, Len has been happily married for 35 years, with three great kids and four fabulous grandchildren.
