New York, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Real estate investments that involve hanging onto properties for extended periods of time are a turn-off for many entrepreneurs. But buying a run-down piece of property, fixing it up and flipping it quickly is a totally different story.

"Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era" by Marty Boardman provides both experienced and newbie fix-and-flip real estate investors, working either full- or part-time, with the tools they need to strategize and complete this type of real-estate investment. The book underscores that fixing and flipping houses is a business with a solid formula. Following these steps can help serious investors sell as many as 20 properties a month and pocket as much as six figures’ worth of profit a year. And, with the housing market projected to bottom out at last, the time is ripe to showcase attractive real estate.

The book addresses how to find and buy suitable properties in targeted neighborhoods at a targeted price point. How to calculate rehab expenses and not under- or over-improve the properties. How to sell them with the greatest flip value in the shortest amount of time. And how to secure funding. Also included are instructions on how to buy bank-owned houses and also foreclosures at auction, and how to navigate short sales from underwater homeowners.
