Summary

** Fully Updated for 2021! **

Prices are hitting all-time highs, COVID didn't have the negative effect on the market that was widely predicted, 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.

Perfect Intro

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone starting out in property. Keeping jargon to an absolute minimum, this book does a fantastic job of not only explaining the basics of property investment in general but also explores, compares and contrasts different investment strategies. A perfect intro.

Good starting point

This book has been a good starting point to hear the different strategies, things to take into account etc. It might not be the most exciting listen but it’s educational and tells you what you need to know before making steps into property

Perfect Informative Book for Beginners.

Brilliant as always, this author is consistently good. However I couldn’t find the list of recommended books the author promised.
