4.0 out of 5 stars Really useful in most areas 22 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Fiona's book is a must for people aiming to make money out of property - but the chapter on renting property is a little confusing.
Fiona strongly recommends using an agent, but paints a horrendous picture about the things that can go wrong - then she admits that she has tried to save the 5% fees by not using an agent.
After 8 years of making a lot of money out of letting property I have always used an agent and NEVER had anything going wrong - saving the 5% by having virtually 100% occupancy.
I would advise anyone considering purchasing to rent to use an agent and carefully read:
* Buy to Let by Stuart Powers to get an overview
* The Which Guide to Renting & Letting to dip into specialist areas

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice from a Practical Businesswomen 21 Oct 2002
Fiona Fullerton has written a clear and detailed book which is a great help for anyone considering investing in properties to let or develop. Unusually for the genre, she puts across the female perspective; so missing from other literature but crucial in the property game where the female input in a couple's decision making process is critical.
From a business and due diligence point of view, there is little here that can't be found in any other text on property investment (in fact Rich Dads "Real Estate Riches: How to Become Rich Using Your Banker's Money" by De Roos is much better in this respect), but Fiona covers the post-acquisition activity of decoration and development much better than most. The use of photographs also makes this text stand out from the crowd.
While this text would not be the first text I would by on the subject, it a very useful addition to the library and fills a gap in the market very neatly.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good and helpful 29 Sep 2001
By A Customer
I liked Fiona's column in the Daily Telegraph so I bought her book. I am really glad I did as it is packed with useful information. we were about to make an expensive mistake with our redecoration and the book has stopped us. It is full of advice for young people who are just buying, people who want to move after many years, people who move often and don't want to spend much on decorating and people who want to buy to let. I wish someone had given me this book before I bought my first home but at least I can learn from it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch 16 Jan 2006
By D. Burr
This book offers excellent advice on the whole property experience; viewing, buying, selling, renting and most importantly, how to develop a house to increase the sale price and make money. The advice is practical and presented in an easy-to-read format. I'd still like to see advice on how to develop a house for a target audience; for example, do families prefer carpets or wooden flooring? Open-plan kitchen diner or separate rooms? But overall, well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 24 April 2003
By A Customer
This book was worth every penny. I learned one thing about renting which I would not otherwise have known and have not read in other books and it saved me thousands of pounds. I also like the way the author writes. Most of the other books in this area are dry and repetitive but Fiona had interesting and original things to say.
I am looking forward to her next book and really rate her business know-how.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 17 Oct 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Easy to read, well laid out, and informative. It was friendly and didn't expect any competence/experience of the reader. The main points were stressed a few times, and handy lists appeared frequently so that you could see things at a glance at a later date.
Not only was there information on adding value, but also regarding buying, selling and moving house. I'm glad to have it as a refernce, but once I started reading, it was hard to stop!
