Book Description

24 Aug 2002 Rich Dad's Advisors
Dolf De Roos realised at a young age that most of the rich made (and kept) their wealth through real estate. Armed with that knowledge he worked hard and earned money without ever receiving a pay slip or a salary from an employer. What allowed him to do it was real estate! In this book, De Roos shows why investing in property is so astoundingly simple and lucrative. Topics include: negotiations and submitting offers; increasing the value of your property; and dealing with laws, rules and regulations. De Roos opens up and gives an insider's view of his approach, attitudes, techniques and secrets in the real estate game.

First Sentence
The purpose if this book is not so much to give you the "how-to" of real estate-although there will be plenty of how-to-advice-but to make you sit bolt upright and exclaim: "Wow, I never realized real estate was this good!" Read the first page

I've read business and personal development books since I was around 16 (I'm 38 now - just last week). This is the most personally affecting business book I've ever read. The main reason for that is the subject - investing in property.
This is something that I've done since my mid twenties, and I have to admit I've done very well out of it. Or so I thought.
I now deeply regret all six (only six!) of those undervalued residential properties that I so carefully sniffed out and bought, waved my magic makeover wand over, and then sold on for profit. And the only part of it I regret is the fact that I SOLD them.
I will probably never sell one again.
If I had read this book then, I would be wealthier to the tune of well over a million pounds today.
(Half a million pounds of capital uplift on the properties I owned would have been absolutely guaranteed... and the rest I can only speculate. The positive cash flows on all those properties would have been used to buy loads of other properties! Who can say how many I could have added to my portfolio over that time?)
Anyway, I'm not bitter. Just better informed. I'll be carrying on investing in property for profit. I'll be doing it an ENTIRELY different way now. I'll be following Dolf's methods to the letter. Starting now.
If you are involved (or interested) in property development, buy this book.
... and good luck! (not that you'll need it)

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking the next step in property? 4 Jun 2003
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, I've been a landlord since before it became fashionable in the UK, and this is probably the best book about the subject I've ever read.
It would be easy to say that some of the advice given in the book "won't work" because of some specifics about the English and Welsh legal system, however, this would be missing the point...
... This "advisor" is intended to focus in on one part of the overall "Rich Dad" approach to financial freedom, and give more illumination on that part.
The whole approach is about concentrating on, and improving, your financial intelligence, which takes time and effort. However, reading this book will take the prospective landlord a long way.
It's well worth a read, and speaking from my personal experience as a landlord, following one piece of advice in the book returned me the price of the book 6 times over within two weeks.

4.0 out of 5 stars The basics of property investment 3 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If this book does nothing else it breaks down into easily understood advice about why one should invest in property, with the aid of simple arithmatic. It shows why press quoted comparisons between investments are not equal and property for the ordinary person is the vehicle for growth.
However, I feel that the actual methods of acquiring property used by the author will not work in the UK with our high property prices compared with rental values. The tax implications are not covered due to international variations, but will bite if you've borrowed too much to purchase a property with no reserves. If you're in the UK and thinking of investing in property this book should be read in conjuction with "How to make money from property" by Adam Walker.
A useful read and worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just may make you wealthy 7 Jan 2004
By styles
Very good book from the point of view that it makes investing in property seem very achievable for anybody. lets face it, we are all aware that a few people are making money (quite a lot of it) by buying houses and renting them out. however most people are daunted by what they THINK is involved and how difficult it will be to get started and therefore do nothing. this book will help you get started because it demonstrates that doing it is quite straightforward. Not that it makes any difference but it got me motivated to go out and buy my first rental property and guess what? i didn't need the magical 15% deposit because as the book suggested, i visited a couple of banks and they couldn't wait to give me money - the rest of you better get started because i'm planning to buy my next one soon!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 Nov 2001
This book exposes all the hidden goodness in real estate investment. It takes you through every logical step and proves why real estate is about the best forms of investment ever. The ideas exhibited in the book can be applicable in most developed countries in the world. the only aspect that is very difficult to represent is the Tax laws which are slightly different from country to country.
Having said that, this book has provided me with opportunities I have started to expliot. If you are someone who is considering real estate investment, this is a book you will never put down when you open the first page.
I have one thing to say to the writer:
Thank you ever so much for sharing your knowledge.

Having read all of the Rich Dad series I was a little suspect about the "advisor" series. This book, however, is right up there in standard and is well worth the money if you are considering a property investment.
While the Rich Dad series is about attitude, planning and outlook, this book is about practical thoughts on how to tactically implement one part of your Rich Dad plan. The authors' self promotion style (like Kiyosaki's) may be too American for most British folks, but the logical manner that he approaches his subject is deliberate and comprehensive.
I have used the ideas in this book for my ongoing strategic plan and also to come to decision as to my next moves (as I have just completed my third property deal in a year). Many of the suggestions (like the main causes for people needing to move quickly) I recognise from my recent experience and really help to drive increased ROE from each deal.
If you haven't read Rich Dad, Poor dad yet though, may I suggest reading them first - this book covers only one part of a overall waelth plan and without the over-riding strategic plan you would get into the detail too early and miss the big picture.
Well worth it....
