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.

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.

An excellent book, clear, concise, down-to-earth

I've loved this audio book so much that I'm going to buy the actual book as I want to go through and highlight things. I also want to share it with members of my family. It is clear and concise which makes it great for beginners. It doesn't do any of the mumbo-jumbo visualisation rubbish to which I am highly allergic!! It simply explains in a pragmatic and straightforward way and points out limitations and pitfalls sensibly. An excellent book for anyone who loves to learn and wants to progress but with a healthy dose of realism! Really loved the narrator's style as well.

Very good, but put me a bit off property market.

I can't help but feel this book has put me off property investment. No bad words about the book, it was very useful and informative and would recommend it. But it just sounds like property investment is to high risk for me. But hey, maybe I missed the point, will have a listen again one day.

Great information..

Even though I am a beginner I wondered whether this book might be too basic because I had already consumed a lot of other resources. Well it has been a real eye opener and I feel gives a genuinely honest appraisal of the new landscape in front of me rather than the over optimistic sales pitches that I have received from my other resources. Thanks Rob, appreciated
