Now we are intentionally getting into the business as we are getting within a decade of retirement age. We want to do it right and this book has been a great resource as we dive in.
I've seen some critiques that say the content is a bit basic, but I don't agree with that at all. It is well-structured and well written. I honestly didn't read a single segment that I didn't feel was useful. I especially like the links to document templates and information about regs in specific states.
The personal anecdotes about the writers' experiences also add a credible and sometimes humorous punch to information that one would expect to be boring.
Bottom line, at around $17 for the paperback, I consider this book a gift to a rental newbie like me. I highly recommend.
That being said. The book is dated. The online posting sites are not always free as advertised in the book. There’s no talk about keyless entry or security systems. A conversation about write offs and upgrades that glean more income could help too. A great motivational read but I didn’t come away any more educated.
