This is a well-written concise book on investing in apartment buildings. It was really entertaining too! Theresa Bradley-Banta shows you clearly how to find and understand good apartment investing markets; tour and evaluate properties (by driving by and by going to a showing with the seller or broker); obtain the actual property financials from the seller for use in property analysis; clearly understand investing terms, concepts and formulas; find a team and lead it; steer way clear of the hype around multifamily investing; and most importantly get into action free of fear and doubts. I found the book to be very inspiring.
As an added bonus, she makes all of the documents from her book available for free download. I now have all the questions I need to interview both a commercial broker and a property manager (not to mention a great sample property management agreement), due diligence documents, sample Letter of Intent, sample real estate investor resume plus other great resources.
I would encourage you to buy this book. Keep it handy as an excellent reference. And read it every three or four months as you build your investing business.

I’ve been investing in single-family houses for a couple of years now and I’ve wanted to make the move to buying apartment buildings. As a newcomer to multifamily investing I did not want to make costly mistakes. Theresa Bradley-Banta has delivered the goods when it comes to practical advice. Not only does she cover successful deals she shows you why she chose to pass on deals that didn’t match her strategies. Most books promote apartment building investing as easy to do, going as far as saying anyone can do it. As an experienced real estate investor I know this simply isn’t true. Big mistakes can be made when you’re dealing with millions of dollars. I found Theresa to be refreshingly honest about the potential downfalls and mistakes that can be made. In my opinion? Priceless!
