Product Description:
Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach demonstrates how value is central to virtually all real estate decision-making. Students using Ling and Archer should finish the course with a value-oriented framework and a set of valuation and decision making tools that can be applied in a variety of real-world situations. The key to making sound investment decision is to understand how property values are created, maintained, increased or destroyed.

Since the launch of Real Estate Principles: A Value Approach, significant and lasting changes have come upon the world of real estate. This is very true in real estate finance and capital sources where most of the traditional lenders have been transformed or displaced, giving way to a radically different set of players in mortgage finance. There has been change with profound and far-reaching implications in a world where it is understandable that property values can go down as well as up. This realization will color every aspect of real estate investment, finance and transactions for the foreseeable future.

Think apartments and commercial real estate are just for the big boys? Think again.

Brian Murray was not an investment pro when he bought his first commercial property. He was a teacher looking to build some side income.

You'll learn how to:

  • Find and creatively finance commercial property
  • Grow a portfolio without any help from outside investors and without taking on excessive debt
  • Use your small-investor status as a competitive advantage over corporate investors
  • Identify simple, practical ways to increase profits while keeping costs low

Murray also shares real-life stories that reveal exactly how he grew his business, and the hard lessons he learned along the way (so you don't have to). Whether you already invest in real estate and want to go bigger, or you've never owned a property, this book gives you the tools and wisdom you need to crush it in apartments and commercial real estate.
