From what other people have posted the different editions do not change very much.
I recommend a book written in the 1950s. The author died about 3 or 4 years ago. So does that make the book bad? Not in my view.
Yes, things do change some. But the basics of real estate investing do not change a lot, I’d suggest. Oh sure, there are different fads, such as the current “short sale” fad. And some of the fads hang on long enough to probably not be called fads, such as the “no money down payment out of your own pocket” whatever-it-is.
So don’t worry too much. Maybe pick up the last edition before the current one if you can. If you go back further than that, you sill will be ok, I’d bet.
