Imagine this. You buy a home, live in it, then buy another. You build your wealth through real estate—and then retire rich. It may sound too good to be true. But it’s not. It has happened, it’s happening now and it will continue to happen for millions of people over the next few decades. The question is, will it happen for you?

If you want the answer to be “yes,” then stop what you are doing and open this book. Read a few pages. Bach’s simple strategies make you rich where you sleep. All you have to do is follow his easy program to go from renter to owner, and from owner to Automatic Millionaire Homeowner. The rest is automatic!

What’s the secret to becoming a millionaire in real estate?

Since the runaway success of David Bach’s #1 New York Times bestseller The Automatic Millionaire, people all over the world have asked David the same question—is it really possible for me to get rich in real estate?

Now, in The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner, David Bach reveals why buying a home and investment properties is not only possible, it is the surest way to reach your seven-figures dreams on an ordinary income.

The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner starts with the powerful story of an average American couple with a modest income who stretch to buy their first house for $30,000 and retire 35 years later owning a home on a golf course and rental properties worth over three million dollars. Through their story you will learn the surprising fact that even if you have cheap rent you can’t get rich renting! You must first own a home, and make it the foundation on which you build your financial security.

What Makes The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner Essential:

You don’t need a big down payment to buy a home.
You don’t need great credit.
You should buy even if you have credit card debt.
You can buy a second home even if you’re still paying off the first.
You can get started in any market–boom or bust.
It’s easier to be a landlord than you think.

Whether you are a renter or already own a home, David Bach gives you a lifelong strategy for real estate based on timeless wisdom that is tried and true. He includes everything you need to know, with step-by-step instructions, including phone numbers and websites so you can get started right away. His road map to ownership is easy to follow and, best of all, it makes the process totally automatic.

As long as you’re alive, you have to live somewhere. Why not let where you live make you rich? David Bach will show you how.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie C | 2/16/2014

    " David Bach's very simple concepts of savings, applied to investment in real estate. A great book for anyone who is almost ready to start looking for a house but still has fear that it's an unreachable or dangerous endeavour. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sally | 2/10/2014

    " There was a really good lesson in this book wich made me hopeful. It was a narrative of a couple who never sold their first home but rented it out and they became very weatlthy by the time they were retired. This encourages me because since we are renting our first house ONLY because it didn't sell, that maybe it will be better for us financially in the future. Overall, I was pretty disappointed in this book. Most of the book was about how to shop for and buy a house. Most things I knew already because I have gone through that two times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennie | 1/27/2014

    " step one in me buying a home is probably "move back to philadelphia" "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Edward Monrad | 1/21/2014

    " Worthless book cheerleading investing in real estate as a way to grow wealth over time. Somewhat outdated and doesn't present useful, actionable information. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alana | 1/15/2014

    " This book was fantastic and I recommend anyone looking at buying a new home to read it to become educated. Since I have already been through the home-buying process, I knew a lot of what the book was explaining, however, I did still learn a lot of information that I can use in the next time I purchase a home. Although I would rather be rich now and this book, along with the rest of his Finish Rich series, is in hopes of preparing you to plan for your future retirement years and years down the road, David Bach provides low risk opportunities for investing. In the situation I am in right now and the way the economy is, reading this book just comforted me on making the right decisions and reminded me why I bought my home in the first place. As many people know, Garrett and I have a love/hate relationship with our home and as we sweat over maintaining a nice living space and area, it will be worth it later in life when we can 'finish rich.' "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Grassie | 1/14/2014

    " A must read for all ages. If you in any way desire financial independence and a place to call home, this is your book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H | 1/13/2014

    " reads like an infomercial "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 1/8/2014

    " This book contains some good advice for buying a home and is also a convincing arguement as to why homeowning is a good long term investment. It will also make you think twice about selling your house versus holding onto it as a rental property. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri Fosse | 12/13/2013

    " Great resource for learning how to capitalize on home purchases as investments. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 12/8/2013

    " I think his books are written on an 8th grade level and should be read by high schoolers as a class assignment. However, for adults in 2011 they are desperately outdated now. Maybe if you have never read one they are ok. "

    " Some things in here I know I'm going to use! The best part about this book is that the author repeats many times, that people who buy lots of houses just to flip them are stupid jerks who ruin it for everyone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 6/5/2013
