This 120,900 word instructional book on real estate investing is longer than most novels. Matt Fox is an experienced real estate investor who started with nothing. The deals Matt analyzed when he was an institutional analyst? These were large apartment complexes of the 8-figure variety. Matt played with the big boys in finance before becoming a full-time real estate investor. Why? He was tired of being a spectator. Matt originally wrote The Stripper and The Gun to hand out at one day real estate investment seminars which cost $400 to attend. The seminars centered on Matt and the seminar attendees going through The Stripper and The Gun line by line over the course of twelve hours. Anyone who attended these seminars absolutely loved them, with several students going on to nail down big deals. This book is Matt’s playbook, a how to guide to start building your own real estate empire from scratch. The book covers basic and advanced real estate investing topics, including specific marketing techniques which are guaranteed to make your phone ring with calls from distressed real estate sellers who will literally beg you to help them. Sad but true. One marketing technique developed by Matt involves the use of “door ribbons.” This marketing technique singlehandedly outperformed locating distressed sellers better than radio, television, or even billboards—at a fraction of the cost. Learning this one technique is worth the price of this book 1000 times over. Unlike other books, this books talks extensively about the language and mathematics of real estate investing. This book was meant to supply the same complexity and level of information as a graduate school real estate investment class. To be a real estate investor, you must be able to talk the talk, but also understand the mathematics. This book will teach you how to calculate a safe offer for a house, how to crunch the numbers of bigger deals, and how to use the same language bankers use on a daily basis. At one point, Matt’s bankers asked him to help them create a spreadsheet to better analyze deals. Talk about a compliment.
