You really should try and down some of the stuff in the course…
do not wait til all your ducks are in a row…

Here is a list of authors that you should have read if you are a REI (for more than 3-5 years). The rest of this is on pg 249 of, The Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad’s Guide to Financial Freedom

Over the Top
Secrets of Closing the Sale (sales) Zig Ziglar)
E-Myth (Business) Michael Gerber
The Great Boom Ahead
and the follow up vol. (Economics) Harry S. Dent, Jr.
The Wealth of Nations
and other books by (macro Economics) Adam Smith (boring sometimes but worth reading)

some of my specialized favorites…
RE Tax books by john Reed
Joel S moskowitz tax lien cert.
Ted Thomas foreclosures
Hicks REI books (multi units)at the local Library

We are halfway through studying the Carlton Sheets program and are still a little overwhelmed with all the information. We really don’t have much experience in the RE market besides buying our own home with the help of a realtor, but we are eager to continue learning. For those of you who have completed the course, what follow-up reading do you recommend? What are your thoughts on Carlton’s other books, particularly the property management book? Are there any other websites where we can do additional research? Magazines? Thanks for your suggestions!

  1. Real Estate Investing, 2nd ed., McLean and Eldred; $15.
  2. 5 Magic Paths to making a fortune in Real Estate, Lumley; $15.
  3. Creating Wealth by Robert Allen; $15.
  4. Keep your hard earned money by Fellman; $15
  5. Winning thru intimidation by Ringer; $10
  6. Your Wealth Building Years by Berg; $12.
  7. Rich Dad Poor Dad and Cash Flow Quadrant by Kiyosaki; $15 each.
  8. The Millionaire Next Door by Stanley and Danko; $12.
  9. Unlimited Power by Anthony Robbins, $15.
  10. Dress Your House for Success by Webb and Zackheim; $12.
  11. Buy it, fix it, sell it, profit by Myers; $15.

Eventually, you should read most of the stuff available in print. I’m not joking. Once you are doing deals successfully, that is. Beware of reading too much and getting stuck in paralysis of analysis. More knowledge and reading won’t temper your anxiety in getting started (no matter what you may unconsciously think). Good luck.

If you are going to be a Landlord, get Landlording
by Leigh Robinson. It’s the only property mgmt book you will need.
And I agree with the other post… If you are feeling overwhelmed with all the information, why are you looking for more info? Apply the info you do have and refine that first…
