“Have you ever considered writing a book?”

Jeff Olson, Executive Editor for Apress Publishing called me back in April after reading this blog. He wanted to know if I ever considered writing a book about fixing and flipping houses. I told him that the thought had crossed my mind.

Naturally, I was a little skeptical. Was this some sort of scam? Was this Jeff Olson guy full of it? It’s not every day a publisher calls out of the blue and offers me money to write a book. So I checked out Apress online and found Jeff on LinkedIn. Both were legit. By the end of May I had signed a contract with Apress, written the book’s outline, table of contents and first three chapters.

Over the summer I dogged it a little too much and fell behind, so much so that I missed my August 15th deadline. Luckily, Jeff was patient. He gently nudged me to get the book done by mid-October. I put everything on the backburner for two weeks and got it done.

I’m proud to say that Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era is now available to pre-order through Amazon or Barnes and Noble. It will be released December 5th. In it, you’ll learn everything I could possibly remember about fixing and flipping houses, including:

  • Acquisition
  • Rehab
  • Sales
  • Raising Capital

How is this book different than other books about fixing and flipping?

Well, as best I can tell, it’s the first of its kind to be written since the real estate market crash in 2008. I’m sure you’d agree that much has changed since then. I had to completely revamp my business in 2009 and Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era has what you need to know to make money in today’s ever changing market.
