Property Investment for Beginners

Author: Rob Dix
ISBN: 1484116275
Release Date: 2013-04-18

Updated for 2015! The recession is over, house prices are heading steadily upwards 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 book 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. The book also includes a curated "further reading" list of recommended books, magazines, forums, blogs and podcasts to help you confidently take your next steps in your property investment journey. 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 safe and 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. Praise for "Property Investment For Beginners"... "The book is very easy to read and the explanations are very clear, with some good humour to boot! With a good set of references and online links, this book is a must for anyone interested in property investment." - P Cowley "A property investment book that keeps it simple. I really enjoyed it, and will use it as my main point of reference. Unlike most of the other books, the reader doesn't have to endure the rags to riches rubbish and the inevitable sales pitch for further training." - Nesser "I stumbled across this book randomly on Amazon and I'm so pleased I did - it has given me an excellent overview of what it is to invest in property and has really helped me to focus on my specific goals. It has also opened my eyes to a world of useful tools and contacts which I may never have found without it. Other books may have been able to do this but I'm not sure they would've been so enjoyable to read. If you are thinking of investing in property, or perhaps already are but want to take it further, this is a must read book." - whatkatythinks "When you buy this book, you are not only getting a property wizard, you are also getting a warm-hearted guy. In his book, Rob mentions several times that you can contact him via email and he'll try to help you out. And HE DID! I tentatively emailed him with some questions and he replied right away! Of course, I know he's probably not able to do this for everybody, but even if he just replied to one question, he has proven that he's genuine and kind. And what he replied me with is thoughtful, honest and probably saved me a fortune in the end. Totally worth every penny.

Beyond the Bricks

Release Date: 2014-01-21
Genre: Business & Economics

What does it take to be successful in property investment? How can you start with nothing but a very ordinary level of savings, and amass a portfolio that means you'll never need to work for anyone else again? Beyond the Bricks is a window into the lives of 9 UK-based investors who've done exactly that. Through long-form interviews with them we learn exactly how they did it, what their lives are like now, and what they recommend to anyone just starting out. Of course, "success" is a relative term. During the book you'll meet people ranging from Mark, who amassed a portfolio worth millions, to Serena, whose few houses saved her family from financial ruin. And along the way you'll meet Kim, who was unstoppable prior to the credit crunch, nearly lost everything, and found an innovative way to stay afloat. The day-to-day life of a property investor isn't necessarily what you'd expect either. Fast cars and exotic holidays are represented... but so too are sprinting in pursuit of rent cheques, pottering around in a dressing gown all day, and helping a tenant with cancer by driving her to hospital appointments. This book is less of a "how to" than a "how you could". It won't give you one formula for success, but many practical ideas and inspiring examples that you can use to craft your own property investment story. With all jargon clearly explained, this book will be an educational and entertaining read for those who are yet to get started, as well as a rich source of new ideas for more experienced investors.
