“There are plenty of books out there aimed at providing the motivation to want to buy rental properties, but there are very few books that provide a detailed, step-by-step framework for accomplishing real estate success.  Brandon Turner’s The Book on Rental Property Investing does that, and does it in a way that puts financial freedom through real estate within reach of anyone who wants it.”

 

 “I have not read a more comprehensive discussion in my 20 years of investing. This is a great reference for beginners and experienced rental owners!”

"There are hundreds of books about rental property investing.  You can read them all, or you can save yourself a lot of time and just read this one. This book is an A to Z guide for the real estate investor.  Not just buying and selling, but strategic planning which is all too often forgotten.  The real-world examples really drive it home."

The Book on Managing Rental Properties

About The Authors

Brandon and Heather Turner are active real estate investors in Western Washington State. They started investing in real estate at the age of twenty-one, quickly discovering the wealth-building  opportunities that are made possible through rental properties. Their portfolio consists of single family homes, small multifamily properties, and a 24-unit apartment complex.

Additionally, Brandon can be heard weekly on the BiggerPockets Podcast or on the BiggerPockets Webinars. 

When not investing in real estate, Brandon and Heather enjoy traveling, playing music, and playing with Charlie and Ruby, their two small dogs (who are usually chasing their two cats.) 

"I wish I had this book before I made all of my expensive property management mistakes! In this book Brandon and Heather Turner have covered the biggest challenges for landlords and solved each one with nifty, step-by-step systems.  I literally gave the information in Chapter 6 on tenant prescreening to my own team and said 'use this!' It's that good.”  

“This landlording bible would have prevented hundreds of hours of ulcer-inducing moments for me! If there was one book out there on being a successful landlord, this is the one I would recommend.” 
 
“It's practical, real, and comes across very open and unbiased… This is great for beginners as well as anyone who is in another field of real estate investing looking to cross over.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Are These Books For?

Anyone who wants to use rental properties to build wealth.

  • Newbies will love the in-depth, comprehensive knowledge to help them get their first deal.
  • Those with a few deals under their belt will love the strategies and systems for taking their business to a new level.
  • And experienced investors will love the tips and tricks that will help them button down their business and create more profit with less work.

These books are truly designed for everyone who has or every will buy a rental property.

What If I Want A Refund?

We are so confident that these book will absolutely blow you away that we offer a 100% no-questions-asked 30-day money back guarantee. If these books don't help you and your real estate investing - we will refund your entire purchase amount, within 30 days.  For a refund request, just send an email to support@BiggerPockets.com. Refunds not applicable for books purchased on Amazon. 

What Is The Meaning Of Life?

This question is quite common, so let's address it. While we can't tell you the exact meaning of life, we can tell you a few things we are confident are NOT the meaning of life. Slaving away at a 9-5 job for forty years, just to retire on what's left of our social security system is not the meaning of life. Not having enough financial resources to support your favorite charity is not the meaning of life. Missing your kids' soccer games, drama club plays, and ballet recitals because you were too busy working is not the meaning of life. I think most Americans can agree to those. So why do so many people spend their lives worshipping at the alter of work? Free yourself. Refuse to be part of a culture that values work over relationships. Find ways to create passive income so you can build your own dreams rather than spend the next decade building someone else's. Stop buying so much crap you don't need to impress people you don't like. Don't let society dictate your destiny. Get out there. Travel. Take risks. Read. Love. And then give back. 

Oh, and pick up a copy of these books. It'll help. 

Which Package Should I Buy?

To provide the most value but still make sure everyone can afford to read these books, BiggerPockets has released the books in several price packages:

Digital Bundle: If you don't want a physical copy of these books to keep on your shelf, but only plan to read the book on your iPad, Kindle, or other e-reader, choose the Digital+Bonus Bundle. All four bonuses, including forms, will come with this version of the books.

Why Should I Buy These Books?

Financial freedom seems to be everyone’s goal, but very few ever find it. At BiggerPockets, we believe financial freedom is in reach of anyone willing to take the time to learn the best ways to grow wealth - and rental properties are one of the best ways to accomplish this.

BiggerPockets commissioned the writing of these two books because although there are numerous books in existence already about this subject, most were written in an economic time very different from today. We wanted to show people that rental property investing still works, and now is a great time to get involved. Furthermore, these books go deeper than any other real estate book we’ve read, which is why we broke the book into TWO, massive books. With over 800 pages combined, these books will give you everything you need to find success with rental properties, no matter where you are at in your investing journey.

What’s the Difference Between the Two Books?

Originally these books were going to be just one book, but it soon became obvious that rental property investing really has two phases: The Acquisition/Growth phase and the management phase. Therefore, the books were split and the authors dove DEEP into both phases, giving you everything you need to know to be successful with rental properties.

In The Book on Rental Property Investing, Brandon shares the strategies needed to build a thriving rental property portfolio, including discussions on making a plan, setting goals, building your team, finding great deals, analyzing deals, making offers, negotiating with sellers, exit strategies, and two chapters on managing tenants.

In The Book on Managing Rental Properties, Brandon joined with his wife Heather to share exactly how to manage tenants in your rental property portfolio, including discussions on setting up your landlording business for success, dealing with inherited tenants, avoiding fair housing complaints and lawsuits, advertising your vacant properties, screening for excellent tenants, showing properties, signing the lease, dealing with tenant drama, evicting tenants, and more.
