THE BEST WAY TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE

"An invaluable and easy-to-understand resource."
-Virginia B. Gerhart, CFP, Gerhart Associates

The appeal of real estate investing comes from the fact that we cannot increase land supply, we can only develop what's already there. With this in mind, J.K. Lasser's Real Estate Investing has been written to provide anyone interested in this area with sound advice and up-to-date strategies that will aid them in their real estate investing ventures. This comprehensive guide explores the various ways you can buy, sell, and manage real estate as either a primary investment for profit and tax benefits, or as a method for diversifying your investments for the long term. Divided into two parts-how real estate investing works and managing your property-this valuable resource examines the basic requirements for real estate investing, the major benefits to look for, and the drawbacks you should be aware of. Before setting out upon investing in real estate, pick up J.K. Lasser's Real Estate Investing and learn how to do it the right way.

Critical coverage will help you:
* Locate the most desirable properties
* Develop strategies to buy and sell rental property
* Properly finance the purchase of real estate
* Use the tax features of real estate investments to their fullest
* Manage the landlord-tenant relationship
