Many people think of real estate in terms of homes, but there is much more to this market. Real estate offers a powerful alternative for people seeking investment opportunities beyond the stock market. In fact, one of the best-kept secrets in the country is that fortunes are being made every day in income-producing properties – not just by the rich but by ordinary people who started off buying little apartment buildings, neighborhood shopping centers, small office buildings, and clusters of small warehouses. At times when the economy takes a downturn, the demand for top-notch income properties still remains vibrant. The fact is they are recession proof.
Ken Rosen, a real estate investor who has bought and sold $500 million worth of investment real estate since 1975, knows what it takes to achieve exceptional wealth through income-producing properties. With this easy-to-understand resource, he’ll show men and women who have never invested how they can be successful. Rosen also reveals how experienced investors can find useful new ways to look at their real estate portfolios.
Divided into three comprehensive parts, Investing in Income Properties reveals the profitable six-step formula Rosen has created to capture impressive profits over the course of his successful real estate investing career.
Part One: The Basics explores the essentials of real estate investing, its unique advantages over other investments, how to overcome investment fears, ways to obtain the cash to get started, and how to find the right professionals to help build a successful portfolio.
Part Two: The Big Six Formula breaks down Rosen’s time-tested real estate investment strategy and shows you how it can be used to identify and purchase the right property at the right price, arrange financing, build equity, cut income taxes, and much more. Rosen will also tell you why money is made in buying – not selling.
Part Three: Moving Forward focuses on how to handle your investment after you’ve closed the deal, and examines how you can increase the revenue and maximize the value of your property. Rosen uses photographs of actual properties and cites case studies of people who became rich using his approach.
