Investing in commercial real estate can provide excellent
risk-return opportunities for both the large and small investor.
Unlike equity securities, commercial real estate often generates a
substantial and predictable cash flow over time--and the
compounding effect of this cash flow can significantly enhance the
performance of most investment portfolios.

Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, The Real Estate
Investment Handbook is an essential tool for current and aspiring
commercial real estate investors looking to develop and evaluate
commercial real estate properties.

Throughout the book, experts G. Timothy Haight and Daniel D. Singer
offer careful examinations of the various types of commercial real
estate available, the measures within the markets used to evaluate
their performance, and the intricacies of the markets in which they
are traded. The discussions of breakeven analysis, present value,
financial leverage, loan packaging, and practical real-life
situations found in The Real Estate Investment Handbook will help
you make better-informed decisions when investing in properties
such as:

* Apartments, condominiums, and time-shares

* Single-family homes

* Self-storage facilities

* Office buildings

* Industrial properties

* Parking lots

* Shopping centers

* Hotels and motels

Successful real estate investing is not just about net income or
cash flow; it's about the fit between an investor and an
investment. With The Real Estate Investment Handbook as your guide,
you'll learn how to choose properties that make sense--and
money--for you.
