NEW YORK (September 19, 2023) — Investing in Retail Properties: A Guide to Structuring Partnerships for Sharing Capital Appreciation and Cash Flow, Third Edition by Gary D. Rappaport is now available. The book is published with Forbes Books, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes, and is available on Amazon today.
In the third edition of Investing in Retail Properties, Gary D. Rappaport has updated his insights for the post-pandemic normal. With strategies for navigating today’s high interest rate environment and new thoughts on what makes open-air grocery-anchored neighborhood centers thrive with the right combination of retailers and non-retail uses, such as education, medical, health and wellness, Rappaport brings his time-tested expertise into a new era.
Additionally, Rappaport shares recent case studies of his students that turned his lessons into lucrative careers, and he highlights the human element behind these businesses.
Readers of Investing in Retail Properties learn the essentials of the industry including setting up a legal entity, raising equity, acquiring undervalued commercial real estate, structuring cash flow, benefiting from tax advantages, and picking out the right properties. Rappaport also shares his personal experiences growing up in Long Island and buying his first properties. His first-hand account of how to succeed in commercial real estate is designed to empower and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
“I talk about structuring partnerships and building an operating business, but quite honestly, I talk about my life. I talk about my experiences. I talk about the great risks I have taken over the past 40 years as an entrepreneurial developer,” said Rappaport. “I find that my students want to learn more than the technical aspects of the business. They want to know how it will affect their lives.”
