97 Tips for Canadian Real Estate InvestorsI recently purchased three different authors to gain additional buy/hold insights for investing in Canada. I found the Don Campbell's books to be very practical and easy to read. I particularly enjoyed the 97 tips. The tax recommendations are recent and applicable to our market vs the States. When you purchase one of his book, the money is donated to Habitat for Humanity. If you are new and want to hit the ground running in real estate investment, his books are an excellent source of information with sound advices.

Good book, however it is outdated. There is a 2nd edition now, I was not aware when I bought it. So if you want buy, look for the 2nd edition.

Written in the style of The Wealthy Barber, it is a bit long to read a times. It's a great book to set you in the good direction but it is not enough to make you take a well informed decision. The financial side lacks. With this book, you would buy a property if you though the environment had a future and it has a good GRY (which he calls the Cashflow Zone) and some really basic cash flow calculation.
I almost gave it a 3 but I thought the book was a very good intro. But it lacks a lot and you might think it is an invitation card to sign up to the author's REIN network to see if you could get the rest. There is a lot of motivational content which I find a bit tedious but some might need it.
So I recommend the book if you are new at this. I thought it a very useful introduction so I gave it a 4 but 3.5 would have been better. For solid financial evaluation, look elsewhere.

For someone who is just starting out, this may be the right book for you. Campbell explains the fundamentals of property analysis, from the neighbourhood to the number crunching on the homes themselves. Even though much of the book is structured around the experience of one of his clients, Richard, aka "Rich", but he's not, unlike many other books, Richard and Emma's experience is applicable to most situations... Even though many of the property analysis techniques he offers are no-brainers, he is correct in saying that emotions should be removed from the equation.
I would highly recommend this book and Douglas Gray's "Making Money in Canadian Residential Real Estate" as a must-have source for beginners and experts alike.

I would just like to add this little note on behalf some comments that were made after reading this book by other people. First of all, nobody is going to hold your hand and tell you what to do! Don't expect step by step guide on how to get rich quick and be a Donald Trump!! This is a good book with some valuable info. I am on page 100 and got more out of it than anything else i read before on Real Estate. It is upseting to see people criticize and act like million dollar transactions weren't presented in the book or on the web site. Author is trying to make money, Good for him!! isn't it what everybody is trying to do??? He probably has some valuable experience and tries to share it, it is just another business venture and if you don't like it don't buy the book. Like i said book has some good info only if you put it to work, nobody is going to hold your hand, get out there and buy some properties keep reading, a book is never a bad purchase, don't listen to complainers who think that they will buy a bucket of gold for $22!!
