Product Description

Product Description

In this fourth, updated edition of the Number 1 Amazon Property best Seller, Property Millionaire Simon Zutshi will show you how you can build a GBP 1 million property portfolio and a GBP 50,000 income in just 12 months, by revealing some of the success secrets behind his Property Mastermind Programme. This revised edition includes a brand new chapter on Property Options, New case studies and extra content such as: The 5 questions to ask Estate Agents to get them to find the best properties for you; How to pay off your mortgage in 8 to 10 years and build a property portfolio at the same time: How to quickly and easily asses if a property will make positive cash flow for you; and How to recycle your deposit every 6 months using “Momentum Investing”. The essence of the book is that no matter where you live, there are motivated sellers in your area who will sell their property to you for well below the true market value. This means that you can build a substantial property portfolio using very little of your own money. Simon will show you how to find these motivated sellers, how to deal with them and structure an ethical win/win deal. The book is designed to open your mind, stimulate your thinking and make you aware of some of the current possibilities available in property investing.

About the Author

Simon Zutshi is a financially independent, professional property investor with almost two decades of experience investing in residential property in the UK and overseas.Simon started investing in 1995 when, as a first time buyer and a recent graduate in debt, he found a strategy to purchase his first property (his home) using none of his own money. By renting out the spare rooms, he was able to cover the mortgage payments and effectively live for free! Caught by the property bug, Simon started to buy more property and, by the age of 32, he was financially independent due to the passive income generated from his property portfolio. Since an early age, Simon has been interested in the art of magic. He started to perform professionally at the age of 15 and became a member of the world famous Magic Circle in his early 20’s. Simon has often said that investing in property draws many parallels with magic, in that once you know the secret, what seemed impossible before is simple to achieve. As with any magic trick, knowing the secret is not always enough, and in order to become truly successful, you must practice and apply your knowledge with skill.In 2003, Simon founded the Property Investors’ Network, which is now a nationwide organisation, to provide a supportive environment for investors to learn more about investing, with the aim of maximising their return and minimising the risks.Simon now spends most of his time helping and educating other investors by sharing his ‘hands on experience’ gained over many years as a successful investor. He is one of the few property speakers in the UK who is a member of the Professional Speakers Association. As such, Simon is regularly invited to share his residential property investing strategies at the large property exhibitions and entrepreneurial business conferences in the UK and around the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Common sense info ruined by adverts 24 Nov. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains some good common sense information, but it is filled with adverts and plugs for the author's seminars and courses. It is a slim 170 pages long but only about 100 pages contain useful info. There is a 20 page section near the end exclusively devoted to the author's products he is flogging. Obviously he is not as successful in property as he makes out otherwise why bother with the course selling? All of the case studies peppered throughout the book always contain references to how they found XYZ tip, or met XYZ person at one of the author's courses.

Having said this, the book does contain some good common sense information about property investing. This can be summarised as:

1. Buy properties at below market value by looking for distressed sales, repossessions, etc.
2. Wait about a year, and then remortgage at full market value (remortgages are done on a valuation basis not on a price paid basis).
3. Use the resulting cash for a deposit for another property.
4. Repeat.
5. Let out your properties so the tenants are paying the mortgages.

There are no real methods of buying your first property without a deposit in the market today, so I question the subtitle of the book. I was especially sceptical about the chapter on "purchase options" - while they work in theory, I doubt many people have actually used this method in reality to buy a property without a deposit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure how ethical it really is... 24 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book contained some interesting advice and suggestions for buying/letting property, his constant (somewhat desperate) assertion that his method was ethical left me feeling jaded. In some cases it seems fine to buy a property for below market value (P.62 where the half-converted property had been repossessed as there was no planning permission)and others where it seems exploitative and unpleasant (P.66 where the buyers managed to get an old ladies house for half its market value). I would have more respect for the author if he didn't keep asserting that his methods always culminated in a win-win situation. Profiteering from other people's misfortune and ignorance is not ethical no matter how many times you assert it is - and it certainly doesn't constitute the needy sellers 'winning'.
It is possible to use his method ethically, but you need to make sure greed doesn't cloud your vision.

I'm just starting out as a property investor, this book opened my eyes to several ideas and strategies that I would probably never thought of on my own. I've read few property investment books recently and so far this has proven the best value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point 18 Aug. 2014
An easy read, with some interesting and helpful points made. It could give clearer and more specific up to date information regarding getting mortgages, or where to get accurate advice. We all know you can go to an independent mortgage advisor already, so tips and advice would be more helpful. However it is an easy read and will be helpful to novices.

If you are looking to start out, or already have this seems to be a great book to get the ideas going and thinking outside the box so to speak.
There would appear to be many options out there, and it is more than likely to get your attention and create a spark for you to want to read more.
Great starting point

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty average book 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In summary.... find a motivated seller.... same old story, thought this would provide something more than that old story.

But wait... £500 to go on a seminar if you want and he is also providing DVDs and CDs... maybe if i also buy them???

Not impressed, two stars as well its got some intelligent aspects, but not worth the (done in a couple of days) casual read.
