Investing in real estate in Montgomery County is as much an art as it is a science. The science portions relates to the financial calculations and general number crunching investors must do to make sure their profit is intact. But the art of investing is something that cannot truly be defined. It is something that is acquired through a combination of experience, knowledge, success, and believe it or not, even failure.
BiggerPockets.com touches on the artistic side by listing five books that can help real estate investors and entrepreneurs succeed in their real estate endeavors. I’ve decided to list these five books here, and I encourage you to read them all (if you haven’t already).
Make It Big: 49 secrets to building a life of extreme success – Frank McKinney
While the title mentions secrets, the secrets are really principals that can be applied to all aspects of life. However, when they are applied to the real estate realm, the possibilities are broad and endless.
Delivering Happiness – Tony Hsieh
Tony tells of his many trials when creating the brand Zappos, and how he overcame them. If you want to build a long-term and enduring business and brand, this is a great book to add to your reading list.
Crush It – Gary Vaynerchuk
An impressive story about how Gary builds his parents’ business into a $60 million company - this book is also loaded with internet savvy tips and tricks that can be used in the virtual world of real estate.
Think & Grow Rich – Napolean Hill
This is a very inspiration read, based on some fundamental principals which serve as the building blocks to a successful business. If you are in need of some motivation and mentorship, this is the book for you.
The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
It’s so easy to get distracted and lose focus of your primary objective in real estate investing. You become bogged down with other obstacles and issues, causing you lose sight of the big picture. This is a great book for anyone who needs to be steered back on course.
