Update: Four winners have been chosen. Thanks for all your responses!
I’m super excited about today’s post because it’s my first book giveaway after more than five years of blogging.
The book is a sterling piece of work by my friend Chad Carson of the blog Coach Carson, that is already helping thousands of people build financial independence through real estate.
During the time in Ecuador, he managed his real estate empire of 90 properties remotely. He systematized his real estate business so efficiently that he could spend a good portion of his time in Ecuador writing a book about real estate investing.
It’s published by the trusted online real estate community, BiggerPockets.
Chad is already my favorite real estate blogger. Like his blog, this book delivers in a big way. If you have any inclination of getting into real estate investing, or if you’re looking to acquire more properties, this book is the perfect place to start.
And I’m giving away FOUR COPIES of the book to RBD readers (plus a special BONUS). Read on to find out how to put your name in the hat. UPDATE: No longer accepting submissions!
Retire Early with Real Estate
This topic is way too dense too fit into one blog post. While Chad’s blog covers many of the topics in the book, the book is an organized and comprehensive guide.
Retire Early with Real Estate is not just about real estate investing. There’s a ton of good advice about life, success, and happiness.
The book starts off with the ‘why’ of financial independence. We all have our own personal ‘why’, and Chad shares his which can be summed up with a phrase he often uses on his blog, to do what matters.
It then goes into why real estate is the I.D.E.A.L. vehicle for early retirement investing, and how building wealth is like climbing a mountain.
The second half of the book is tactical, delivering specific instructions on how to execute several real estate investing strategies.
- Step-by-step methods to use rental properties to retire in 10-15 years
- Detailed case studies of ordinary investors who used real estate to retire early
- How to produce rental income to pay all your bills (and never run out)
- 4 practical, easy-to-follow strategies especially for brand new investor
- Creative backup plans to stay flexible and help you sleep well at night
- A 5-step process to create your customized real estate early retirement plan
Investors have many choices for investing in real estate. Part of becoming a successful investor is finding the niche that works for you. Chad’s book covers all of these niches.
Even better, and what makes this book really stand out, he highlights several real-life examples of successful real estate investors executing the various strategies throughout the book.
It’s a masterpiece. I’m not exaggerating.
OK, here’s the deal. I’ve got four paperback copies of the book to giveaway. The winners will receive a physical copy of the book sent from me via snail mail (U.S. shipping only).
But that’s not all!
As an added BONUS, I’m throwing in a free beverage coozy!
