Love Love Love This Book! Finished it in 24 Hours!
For anybody looking to get into investing in property, I would highly recommend this book. Not only is all of the information up to date with current property legislation in the UK. It is written by a very credible Author Rob Dix, who is the co-founder of the property podcast and the property hub which I listen to and visit religiously. So as Rob Dix summarises at the end of this book, what are you waiting for Pull the Trigger! Invest in yourself and knowledge on property investing by purchasing this book.
This book was very easy to read and understand. As a novice looking at investing in property this book gave me what I needed. The extra resources at the end will help me to develop my knowledge further.
Excellent and informative. How anyone can fail to appreciate the depth and time spent on putting all this information ‘under one roof’ for the delectation of the novices among us is beyond me. A rare treat… I enjoy the humour, it’s refreshing and takes the heat off of the serious business of the bottom line…actually buying and maintaining a property. Whichever route you decide to take it will always be a huge committment, on so many levels, therefore, why not have as much fun as you can? Robs book is an invaluable resource and has helped me immeasurably. I think I’ll take him out for lunch and pick his brains further, at some point. Thank you Rob!
Easy to follow and explains well the steps required to begin the process of investing in property. It’s just an introduction book that explains what needs to be considered before plunging into property investment. I will be going on to the next of his book now. It’s up to date too by the way (2017).
Informal but informative
So many books on this subject are dry and difficult to get into. Property Investment for Beginners is accessible and perfectly pitched as a book for the inexperienced. In the introduction, the author states that his intention is to have written book that is clear, honest and fun to read. And he has succeeded hugely. In addition to a series of informal but informative chapters, the author offers a number of possible avenues for further reading, including additional materials from the author. In short, it’s good value for money, offering a useful way in to a complicated subject, with the possibility for future support beyond the confines of the covers. A good buy.
A excellent place to start
If, like me, you are considering property as an investment but really don’t know the basics, this little book is a great place to start. It covers the primary principles including equity, leverage, strategy and goal setting – and does so with lightness and humour. This book switched a few lightbulbs on for me and since finishing it (I’ve actually read it twice and refer back to various sections every now and then) I have clearly defined my goals and strategy and for the first time can see how property investment could be for me and not just ‘other people’. If you are already familiar with the basic concepts, including goal setting and selecting your ideal tenant group, then you may not find anything new in here; as the title suggests it is a For Beginners guide. The book makes provides other good sources of information and gives access to some spreadsheets that do some of the essential number crunching you’ll need to do if considering investing in property. The advice is practical and easy to understand. The author, Rob Dix, comes across as a regular guy who has, through property, been able to create a degree of financial freedom for himself and and appeared happy to respond to an email question I had which you definitely wouldn’t get with every author. Since reading the book I’ve also become a regular visitor to his website (www.propertygeek.net) to supplement the material in the book. I am happy to recommend this book.
Straightforward, honest advice
As someone who is researching the pros and cons of investing in property before deciding whether to take the plunge, I found this book invaluable. It contains straightforward, honest advice which is easy to understand and is written in an entertaining way. Now I know all about the importance of leverage, yield and growth versus income!
a very good overview
I bought this book as someone considering an investment property. The reviews were good and the sample chapter had me hooked. The writing style is relaxed and easy to follow. It was like listening to someone tell a story down the pub. I’m not the world’s fastest reader but I devoured the book in a couple of hours, something unheard of for me. My only real gripe is that it’s now over! I wish the author had written more as I think he has a real talent for keeping the reader interested. I look forward to tracking down his blog and other online resources.
This is a great book: Property Investment for Beginners
I found Rob Dix online via his Property Geek web site and after reading through the advice provided on his site decided to purchase his book ‘Property Investment for Beginners’. This is a great book. The witty, punchy delivery makes for an interesting read and the ground covered in such few pages is refreshing: plus, and most importantly, the content appears to be right on point as it reflects the current market in 2018. Impressed, I have now also bought Rob’s ‘The Complete Guide to Property Investment’ and can’t waiti to get stuck into this book.
