Making Money

Description:    Make the jump from residential investing to high-profit commercial properties

                Millions of people are investing in real estate, but few ever consider the money-making potential of
                commercial properties. Whether they think it's too expensive or too complicated to get into,
                thousands of successful residential investors never take the next step to real estate profits.

                In Commercial Real Estate Investing, veteran investor and author Dolf de Roos explains all the ins
                and outs of commercial investing and shows you how to take your investing game to the next level.
                He explores every sector—including retail, office, and industrial—and provides the expert insight
                you need to choose the right investment area for you. He explains all the key differences between
                residential and commercial investing and provides all the tools and strategies you need to:

                -Find properties that match your abilities and resources

                -Increase the value of a building before you even buy it

                -Lower your risk without cutting into your profits

                -Understand the basics of yield, capital growth, and cap rates

                -Write convincing proposals for bank loans

                -Manage properties with a minimum of hassle—or hire someone to do it for you

                -Protect your assets with the right corporate structure

                -Take advantage of the great tax benefits available to real estate investors

                Whether you're a novice or an experienced residential investor who's ready to take the next step to
                bigger investments and higher profits, Commercial Real Estate Investing is a smart, practical guide
                to getting into the game—and winning big.
