I just finished reading “Equity Happens” (can be found on Amazon here). It was a good book. The first part is a story that is very compelling to get my butt moving on building a real estate investment portfolio. The second part covers practical things to consider in doing this. One quote that sticks with me is: “Cash flow controls mortgages. Mortgages control property. Properties control equity.”
The book is written by Robert Helms and Russell Gray who host the podcast “The Real Estate Guys” (http://realestateguysradio.com/). I am listening to their podcasts and am learning a bunch.
