Real Estate Investing For Dummies, 2nd Edition, is completely revised and updated to help you overcome the challenges and and take advantage of the opportunities in any real estate environment, including a down market. But Eric Tyson and Robert Griswold's core message remains as relevant today as it did upon the initial publication of Real Estate Investing For Dummies -- investing in real estate is time-tested vehicle to build wealth in the long term. Tyson and Griswold don't tell you how to become a millionaire overnight. Instead, they offer proven, practical, and actionable advice so that if you chose to invest in income-producing properties, you can do so wisely and confidently.
