Guest Article by Bob Zachmeier, author of "Upside Up Real Esate Investing"

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

Below is a guest article by Bob Zachmeier. He has written the outstanding new book “Upside Up Real Estate Investing” and I invited him to make a few comments about it. As background, I took Bob’s real estate investment course in 2002, shortly after I began investing in real estate. It was the best real estate course I have ever taken, and the great information from the course is included in his book. His book is for sale at I highly recommend it.

Thanks for considering my book, “Upside Up Real Estate Investing”. I’ve made many mistakes during my 25 years of real estate investing, but have finally found a sure-fire system for success in any market. By sharing my mistakes and triumphs in this book, I hope to put you on the fast track to your own financial success.

Real estate investing has changed my life. Not only did it enable me to quit my job after 22 years, my wife was able to quit hers too. I picked her up from work in a limousine on her 40th birthday and she’s never gone back!

I’ve taught a class on real estate investing for more than 8 years. Many of my students have also been able to leave Corporate America due to the repeatable system I’ve developed. You can too!

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

My book “Fix ’em Up, Rent ’em Out: How to Start Your Own House Fix-up and Rental Business in Your Spare Time” is now available at

Editorial Review:
This book teaches how to get started buying, repairing and renting out fixer-upper houses in your spare time. It covers various aspects such as house selection, what to repair, handling tenants, managing the books, and taxes. The book describes the two safest ways to make money in real estate, and one chapter is devoted the “Zen of Repairing Properties.” The author uses illustrations from his own experiences, humor and motivational examples to encourage the reader down a path that will be both financially rewarding and deeply satisfying.

Comments on “Fix ’em Up, Rent ’em Out”:

“Great information for anyone starting out in the fixer-upper business. Easy to understand, written by an author who has served his apprenticeship in the trenches.”
— Fixer Jay P. DeCima, Investor and Author

“Terry Sprouse has created a profitable rental business with his family in their spare time. He’s accumulated more net worth in six years than most people have after a lifetime of saving. What sets him apart is he took action.”
— Bob Zachmeier, Investor, Educator, Author

“Sprouse has created an approach to home restoration and wealth generation that works. This book provides simple guidelines for restoring homes, but also weaves in guidelines for restoring sanity to our crazy lives. Sprouse has the wit of Will Rogers and the business savvy of Donald Trump. His simple, direct, honest philosophy of sustainability and responsibility is profound.”
