Wholesome and comprehensive info

I like the way the book summarized the process and gave enough details at the same time.

Real Estate by the Numbers, House Flipping, Tax Strategies, Multi-Family Millionaire, 30 Day Stay...

I give all these books great reviews! I think this is where everyone should turn when first starting out because it is filled with loads of information at a very affordable cost. My favorite book of all these is "Real Estate by the numbers," because it goes over so much Lingo, Terminology, equations, and how to apply them in real world applications. I reference this book all the time as I gain more knowledge and experience along the way. I have also created my own excel calcs from them. Thanks a lot for all you guys do and I hope 1 day I can be financially free very soon!!!
