Yes! A great one is The Book on Rental Property Investing by Brandon Turner. It is probably unrealistic to get the type of deals he explains are possible without looking in select markets, but at least you’ll know all the costs when figuring out if a property will cash flow.

So I'm looking at using margin -- has anybody tried this before? InteractiveBroker is quoting <3% for margin 20-50k.
