'Buy and Hold Real Estate Strategy.'

With Buy and Hold Real Estate Strategy, investors learn how to use field-tested techniques to predict a property's market value, make smart buys and accumulate a steady increase in property value with time. With charts, graphs, real-life scenarios and step-by-step instructions, the book explains: how to use maximum write-offs and seller financing to negotiate the best deal; how to assess an area's growth potential; and how to time your purchase to get a boost from the economy.

Written primarily for first-time investors, Buy and Hold Real Estate Strategy describes long-term forecasting techniques and explains how to pyramid an initial investment to further reach successful financial goals. The underlying philosophy within the book is to buy, hold and never sell real estate holdings. It advises the reader to take a calculated, but limited risk and view the market from a long-term perspective; and offers advice on how to do just that.

Among the 15 chapters, Buy and Hold Real Estate Strategy offers comparisons of savings plans and the stock market versus real estate; guides to goal-setting for an investment strategy; analysis techniques for predicting the real estate impact of national, regional, metro area and community environmental and economic trends; tips on making the system work through various ways among them refinancings and tax-deferred exchanges; real estate do's and don'ts; a nuts and bolts look at the appraisal process and an outline of factors affecting the value of real estate.

Comprehensive and practical in nature, this book provides a solid presentation of investment strategies geared toward building a sound financial future.

Buy and Hold Real Estate Strategy was written by veteran real estate investor and appraiser David Schumacher and former Los Angeles Herald-Examiner columnist, Erik Page Bucy.
