Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 176, originally published in July 2010.
Jason provides a unique commentary on the gulf oil spill, firing your investment property manager, buy and hold investing. Following the monologue, Jason talks with Steve Dexter about his book Real Estate Debt Can Make You Rich and long term investing. Housing and commercial property prices the lowest they’ve been in nearly a decade, this classic real estate investment guide is timelier than ever. Dr. Schumacher, who passed away in 2006, found that the way to a lifetime of financial security was to buy smart and never sell, and he built a $20 million fortune using his own savvy advice. The book, updated by Steve Dexter (an expert commentator for CNN/Money, CBS Radio and Fox TV), reveals step-by-step investment techniques that can work in the midst of a slow real estate market or a booming one for first-time buyers or seasoned investors, and for buyers of single-family residences, apartment buildings or shopping.
Steve’s latest book is Buy and Hold Forever- How to Build Wealth for the 21st Century, one he co-wrote with the late Dr. Schumacher who was known as the ‘pope” of real estate investing. His first book Real Estate Debt Can Make You Rich published by McGraw-Hill, was rated one of the top 5 real estate books of the year by Bob Bruss, a nationally syndicated columnist of the Washington Post Media Group. Steve’s second book is Beat the Banks-Prospering in the Rising Wave of Bank Foreclosures. He has been a distinguished speaker at the Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School and their Graduate School of Design and has mentored many of their students about entrepreneurship and real estate investing. He also has spoken at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business Management located in Chicago. He is also a member and speaker of NAREE (National Association of Real Estate Editors), a professional group of authors and major newspaper journalists who write about the national real estate market.
