Real Estate Investment Books by Frank Gallinelli


Can books filled with numbers possibly be exciting? If you’re truly interested in real estate investing then you must first realize that investing in income properties is all about the numbers. It’s 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 you’re on your way to success – and that’s exciting.

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

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.
