Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct that "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent" is not part of the "Millionaire Real Estate Investor" series. The three books are "The Millionaire Real Estate Investor," "Flip: How to Find, Fix and Sell Houses for Profit," and "Hold: How to Find, Buy and Rent Houses for Wealth."

The third and final book in Gary Keller’s "Millionaire Real Estate Investor" trilogy is the best-selling real estate-related book on Amazon.com today, and the other two books in the series are ranked in the top 10, despite having been published years ago.

"Hold: How to Find, Buy, and Rent Houses for Wealth" debuted on USA Today’s Best-Selling Books list this week at No. 62, just behind singer-songrwriter Neil Young’s memoir, "Waging Heavy Peace."

Published Sept. 13 by McGraw-Hill, "Hold" details strategies and stories from successful real estate investors for those who want to follow in their footsteps.

"We wrote this book to share the models and strategies we’ve been using for over 20 years," said Jim McKissack, a Keller Williams Realty affiliate in Denton, Texas, and one of the book’s five co-authors.

"Where else (but in real estate) can you invest money, get a high rate of return, have a tenant pay down your debt, write off expenses, depreciate over 27 and a half years, exchange it for more properties, and some day own it free and clear and have cash flow," said Jennice Doty, a Phoenix-based investor and one of Hold’s authors.

The other two books in Keller’s "Millionaire" trilogy are also holding on to top 10 positions on Amazon.com’s list of best-selling real estate-related books.

"Flip: How to Find, Fix and Sell Houses for Profit" — was published in December, 2006. "The Millionaire Real Estate Investor," was published in March 2005.

Austin, Texas-based Keller Williams Realty claims to be the second-largest residential real estate company in the U.S. Brokerages affiliated with the franchisor have 690 offices in the U.S. and Canada and more than 80,000 real estate agents.
