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.

If you could sum up Property Investment for Beginners in three words, what would they be?

Informative, interesting, absorbing

What does Rob Dix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

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

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

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 useful for beginners in the British market

Would you listen to Property Investment for Beginners again? Why?

No. I was looking for a book for the US market, but the information about this book didn't have any information about its country of focus.

Have you listened to any of Rob Dix’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Any additional comments?

This books seems like a great book for absolute beginners especially around the UK market. If you have already done a little investment or are looking for property outside of the UK, look elsewhere.
