  • I had never really thought that investing in foreclosure properties was something that I, a normal working middle-class person could do. Sure, I’d watch the infomercials and wish that I had the income and nest egg to allow me to invest in real estate, but I never gave it serious thought. I didn’t think it was possible. After reading this book I know it’s not a matter of “if only I could” but more a case of “when I find the right property. ”

    One thing that struck me as extremely useful was the detailed amount of background and information the book provides. The process of foreclosure can be intimidating to someone who is not familiar with the banking industry. It becomes even more difficult to understand when you consider that each state has the potential of having their own set of rules and laws. This book covers all the bases in accessible language, graphs and even screen shots of web pages. The financial jargon is explained clearly and easy to understand examples are provided. Each step including: identifying possible pre-foreclosure properties through advertising or public records searches, contacting homeowners, negotiating, and financing options are laid out and discussed. Networking and the processes surrounding reselling of a purchased house are also described.

    Finally, the book contains a great deal of additional information in the form of a comprehensive glossary and a bibliography of on-line sites where you can do additional research on the various topics of the book. Needless to say, this book was a great springboard of motivation and information for me to get started in the pre-foreclosure housing market.

  • I find that the author has a genuine interest in his Reader’s understanding the Real Estate area in general terms as well as provoking them to analyze whether they can afford to invest in property whether vacation, retirement or investment properties.

    I felt that the goal of the author was to help Readers make better choices in Real Estate investments from a personal and business perspective. The Second Homeowners Handbook provided step by step guidelines and references on identifying property to invest, choosing the right location, analyzing the market, and goal setting.

    While there are many Real Estate investment books on the market, you can not find a book that provide actual details on how to maximize property values by eliminating clutter or steps to improve basic appearance of the property to ultimately generate quick profits. This is a book that you can not resist and is a good buy for those interested in second homeownership.

  • I quite enjoyed Jeff Haden’s logical, step-by-step approach to investing in a second home, and I expect that his book will make the process much simpler for me than it would otherwise be. This book is truly a guide and it helps the potential investor to determine what he can afford, how to locate and finance the right property as a vacation home, second residence, or income-producing property, what creative financing options exist, methods for management of the property and improvement of the home’s value, and more.

    This handbook is an easy read and my copy has earned a place at the front of my reference bookshelf.

  • This book outlines smart financial moves to make even if you are not planning on buying a second home. The tips covered are useful for buying or selling a first home also – items such as how to analyze property or loans, and how to increase the resale value of a home are important in any real estate transaction. For those who are interested in buying a second home, the purchase, financing, and maintenance of residence, rental, and rehab properties is covered in detail. There are clearly written guides which relate the procedures required to hold a second home for monthly income or increase long term wealth.
    The writing is well organized and easy to understand, with excellent descriptions and testimonials from those who are already experienced in the business of real estate. An extensive glossary at the end is helpful for readers who are unfamiliar with real estate terms and phrases.
