    Excellent Financial Analysis!, March 14, 2004

    I’ve read a half dozen or more books on flipping/rehabbing and none of the others come close to this one when it comes to financial analysis. Most authors focus on the “how to’s” of flipping, which Berges does also, but he outshines all of them when it comes to analyzing real estate.

    Berges walks the reader through using several examples in a financial model to help properly analyze an investment property . At the end of the analysis, if the returns are acceptable, you buy the property and if they are not, you pass on it and go on to the next one. No emotional attachments here. Buying and selling is done strictly on an analytical basis.

    A lot of authors tend to focus on getting in to a deal for “nothing down” but say very little, if anything, about value. Just because you can buy a house for nothing down doesn’t mean it’s a good deal or that you should buy it. Out of all the real estate books I’ve read over the years, Berges is the only one to really emphasize value.

    My guess is that Berges will lead the way among future writers by emphasizing value and financial analysis just like Robert Allen led the way with the nothing down techniques in the 80s and 90s.

    Two thumbs up!

    Another Great Book by Berges!, January 25, 2004

    I read Berges’ book The Complete Guide to Buying and Selling Apartments about a year ago or so and liked it so well I couldn’t wait for him to come out with another book. His book on Flipping is every bit as good as the book on apartments. Berges provides a comprehensive and complete approach to anyone interested in buying and selling houses. He wrote about a similar topic, which he referred to as “the value play” in his apartment book. In the flipping properties book, Berges applies the value play strategy, which is to buy, add value, and sell, all in a very short period of time. The idea is to get in, get out, and make money!

    Although Berges covers one of the same topics Bronchick does, he does it in a different way which gives the reader another perspective. Authors write about similar topics all the time. There’s nothing wrong with this. Berges also covered several topics that Bronchick did not. No harm there either. It’s pretty clear to me that judging by their writing styles and backgrounds, Berges likes the finance end of real estate while Bronchick prefers the legal end. Maybe the two should consider teaming up!

    Excellent! Realistic approach to flipping., November 9, 2003

    Frank (New Jersey – Real Estate Investor) –

    I just finished reading this book and I must say the author Steve Berges has done it again! I read his book about buying and selling apartment buildings which was very well written, so I decided to give this one a try. I wasn’t disappointed as Berges really delivers on the topic of flipping. Not only does he describe in detail the underlying theory about the different types of flipping, but he supports it with actual examples.

    My three favorite chapters were Chs 3, 6, and 11. In Ch 3, Berges describes what he refers to as “the value play strategy” which basically has to do with creating value in investment properties and turning them for a profit. Ch 6 was an excellent chapter focusing on several examples which used detailed financial analysis to help really understand how to value properties. Most of all, he explains how to know when to buy a property or when to pass on it. The last chapter of the book, Ch 11, was not so much about real estate as it was about how to succeed in life, regardless of your chosen career path. Well done and inspiring.

    I really like this book because it leaves you feeling good about yourself and about your ability to accomplish your goals. In my opinion, the book is a must read for anyone interested in learning about flipping properties.
