Useful material but narration is hard to follow

Don't get me wrong, I love it when Brandon explains his concepts on the mic. But here, it is a book that he is narrating which is a bit different that conducting a podcast. A reader often requires time to absorb what is being said and it was getting more and more difficult to follow him as the concepts got more technical. He was just too fast. For anyone who wants to take time with these strategies, you may want to read this book at your own pace.
But aside the narration, the book is fantastic. I have heard almost 70% of it and I feel very confident about being creative in real estate. It has some really great strategies and it also does a good job at bringing you back to reality by warning you to be careful with whatever move you make.

Good book. Horrible Narrator

I wanted to give it four stars but the terrible narrator had a very distracting accent kept stuttering had a sore or dry throat and actually repeated several sentences in a row

Brutal Narration

Where does The Book on Investing In Real Estate with No (and Low) Money Down rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far, the book ranks in the top 5. The downside to this would be the narration - very hard to understand, very awkward at times. There are also quite a few recording errors towards the end of the book.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the scope of the book. Brandon provides a wide variety of strategies to take on, then breaks them down into a more simplistic way of understanding them.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maher Abiad?

Myself, Gerard Butler, Anthony Hopkins, Captain Jean Luc Picard...really anybody.

Narrator in distress

The subject and content of the book is of true and great value to any real estate investor, be it novice or seasoned. However the narrator is very variable in his voice, reading speed and quality i.e. he repeats himself several times throughout the book which might indicate bad editing.

All in all, a good book but maybe best read by one self.

Buy the print version

I'm not one to normally write reviews but the narrator was so terrible I felt I had to. The information is great, love all the BP stuff. But the narrator slips in and out of vocal fry (imagine what you sound like when you first wake up and try to speak). There are periods where he speaks normally, but the majority of the book sounds like a frog man sloppily reading the book to you. Do your ears a favor, read the print version.

As a researcher...

As a researcher, I.E. a new investor, this book is invaluable to me. There is a lot of information put out on nine different techniques used in the real estate world to obtain funding for your current or future projects. Most of it is legal ways to go about obtaining funding. A lot of the book speaks volumes about your character and how you loving real estate investing can really play into getting a deal in one stage or another.
Brandon specifically speaks about how he obtained his 12 unit apartment through the virtue of his conversation with another investor He again talks about it later, but without specifically saying so. I believe Brandon happened upon an investor who was having a hard time making money with his commercial real estate and found Brandon may be able to work it, So he sold Brandon the building after a few years of Brandon working it. I believe it was through leasing. So it covered the legal how and the why it happened that way, Brandons character.
The book is a great book to give you ideas on how to work different avenues of funding. A lot of it is networking. Get the book if you are struggling with funding or if you are new to help build a foundation or get new ideas.
It's good to add more tools to your tool box.

Great info for creative real estate Poor execution

Tons of great stuff. I learned a lot. But it was incredibly annoying, that the reader sounded like he was on 6 redbulls. He never once slowed down or paused. Also the recording kept skipping back 5-25 seconds. It did it at least 8 times. But great book!

The wonderland of real estate

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know

What was most disappointing about Brandon Turner’s story?

The principle of his story may possibly work within a determined time and place, however a lot of very important details are missing and those details impact the results. making the hole thing fake.

What didn’t you like about Maher Abiad’s performance?

the so slow and nasal voice was driving me NUTS.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

some concepts about financing are accurate
