Publisher's 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.

    Informative, interesting, absorbing

    You get a fantastic feeling of emphasis on his key take-away's.


    Any additional comments?

    A well written and well read audio-book. Rob is clearly passionate about property investment and it shows. Well worth the 5*s

    "Perfect Beginner Intro"
    Would you try another book written by Rob Dix or narrated by Rob Dix?

    I would read another book by Rob Dix. however I should have just taken the title at face value. This book is for beginners. As someone who already does property investments, this was a waste of my time. I enjoyed his previous book more.


    What will your next listen be?

    Superforcasting


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Rob Dix?

    Rob is fine

    "Short and informative"

    This honest and straightforward account of how to embark on buying a property has taught me a lot especially the number crunching and tax information. If you don't know where to start, read this book. It is also lighthearted and has a positive ring even if it all goes wrong. Thank you.

    "Great listen"

    I liked this book as it runs through all the basic and more ....
    I thought it deserved the 5 star rating as it's thought provoking without negativity. A good listen that I have already recommended to a friend.

    "Great overview"

    I must say well-done to Rob for this. Its a great basic overview with down to earth and pragmatic advice, it is clearly written by someone who has a depth of knowledge but can filter it for a newbie.

    "Don't miss this!"

    This book gave me information I have wanted for about 2 years. I have paid £1400 for a property course that didn't give me what this book gave for around about a tenner. Listen to it or read then go back and do it again. Make notes if audible or highlight if you you have the paper book because for sure you will benefit most by making specific notes on things that jump out at you and memorising them. Good luck.
