Summary

Even though the credit crunch is still fresh in everyone's memory, the media is getting excited about house prices again - and you're convinced that property could be your key to financial freedom.

And it could. But where do you start?

Do you invest near where you live, or wherever yields are best? Do you rent to families, or professionals, or students? Should you be trawling through Rightmove or lurking at property auctions?

This short audiobook, read by the author, covers the big questions you should be asking yourself before you so much as glance at an estate agent's window. It contains a jargon-free explanation of basic investment principles, summaries of the major post-crunch investment strategies, and advice on developing a mindset that will support your long-term success.

You'll learn...

  • How to pick an investment strategy that matches your skills and goals
  • The only three calculations you need to know to size up any deal
  • An overview of every major investment approach, from the most boring to the probably-not-a-good-idea-but-here-you-go-anyway
  • How to (safely and sustainably) stretch a limited pot of cash to build whatever size portfolio you want

...although you will need to endure some pretty shocking jokes along the way. Sorry about that.

Simple & fun

This book is a great introduction to property investing. A little bit dated with the new taxation rules come out post 2017 but it’s fun, simple and interesting in the basic principles of property investing
