Book Review: “Retire Early with Real Estate” by Chad Carson (2018)

Coach Chad Carson is an excellent person to follow. He has been in the real estate game for 10+ years and offers a wealth of resources on the topic on his site and podcast.

His book, published by BiggerPockets, is a great foray into the world of real estate. It offers a high-level strategy including showcasing some of the steps and paths you can take to be on your real estate journey. Sprinkled in are a series of vignettes on some of the real estate investor community ranging from Paula Pant to Graham Stevens to some of the BiggerPockets crew (Gee, I wonder how).

At a high level, the book is an easy ready and a good foray into the world. I think it helped solidify a few decisions that me and my wife are working through on our real estate strategy.

Best Quote of the Book:

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.” – Carl Rogers, Psychologist

Overall: A strong book for the beginner in real estate. While it offers examples and a lot of frameworks, it’s not a step-by-step guide. It offers some solutions and ways to think about your plan.
