I Buy Houses provides budding and existing property investors with both the 'when' and 'how' of property investment. Paul Do explains how the principles of value investing apply to property ensuring readers can purchase property when the price is right. The handbook also covers the property-buying process and the property-management process ensuring readers know the how-to of property investing. Readers are encouraged to spend more time doing research rather than inspections as most buyers do. Paul Do's SYSTEM TTM approach to property investing also provides readers with a framework for building a real estate portfolio. Illustrated with plenty of diagrams to explain financial concepts and case studies to inspire and warn readers and written by an experienced property investor, I Buy Houses is the handbook for property investors.
Paul Do has successfully invested in the real-estate and stock markets for nearly 20 years. His property-investing methods are based on his practical experience in buying and building houses in different states over a number of cycles, as well as his corporate background in pricing and financial analysis.
