This book is not designed to give you one simple formula for investing success — or even to concede that such a formula exists. Rather, this book is designed to teach you a variety of strategies and concepts so you can learn to think outside the box and craft your own personal strategy for no money
down investing. It’s designed to open your mind to new ways of thinking, not to force any particular master plan down your throat. As such, this book does not offer overnight success or instant riches, but it does promise skills and knowledge that will serve you the rest of your investing career (and life) — if you so choose.
As any experienced real estate investor can tell you, there are no “secrets,” and there are no systems that work all the time. Real estate investing is not black and white; it’s not a button that can be pressed or an ATM machine that shoots out cash if the right combination of numbers are pressed. Real estate is a complex, multi-dimensional maze where success requires far more than a script, workbook and seminar, no matter what late night TV gurus might proclaim.
