The purchase of
an income-producing property represents an interesting investment when it is well planned.
The book "THE PRINCIPLES OF REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT" deals with basic investment
elements, finance, value as well as concepts such as the effect of time on the value of
money, simple and compound interest, annuities, mortgage payment calculations and
performance measures to better understand computerised financial analyses for real estate
investment projects. It also introduces the basic concepts of real estate appraisal. All
of these concepts are necessary in order to establish a personal investment value (that
takes into account a yield considering tax and interest rates) and a market value (that
which takes into account how investors react in the market).
