By Chris Clothier on Mon, Feb 8, 2010

Educate yourself as an investor with these Real Estate Investing, Business and Life in general books!

I've been asked repeatedly over the last few weeks by investors to put together a list of books that I have read or could recommend to other real estate investors who are looking to get started.  Most of the clients or prospective clients that I talk to are familiar with my rise as a real estate investor and the fact that my family today operates one of the largest real estate wholesaling companies, MemphisInvest.com, in the country.  They know that we own 1800SellNow.com and that we operate the largest non-profit real estate investors association, Mid-South REIA, in the Mid-South.

Why investing in buy & hold real estate is better than Wall Street

By Chris Clothier on Fri, Jun 12, 2009

Great article quoting Andrew Waite, Editor and Publisher of Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine, on the intricacies of investing in residential real estate and why most of Wall Street is missing out.  Often times, Wall Street wants to mold and package Real Estate Investing into a nice, neat and tidy package and analyze it as a stock or commodity.  Real Estate is both more complex and at the same time much simpler to understand.  You just have to know what it is your looking for!

I have included a good piece of the article here and you can link through to read the entire article.  Come back to me with any questions on how MemphisInvest.com is using the information and expertise of Andrew Waite and others, to fine tune our process.  We have long prided ourselves on being able to adapt to the needs of our clients, and staying in front of the trends in residential investment real estate in Memphis has been our calling card.

Why Wall Street is Missing the U.S. Housing Recovery
