Motivating, well written, a bit short on detail
on 23 February 2010
Overall a very enjoyable read but short on detail. The underlying concept is very simple: Buy To Let property is a much better long term investment vehicle than anything else, & it advises how you should best take advantage of this for long term portfolio growth.
BUT....once I read the book I found it hard to think back about many new facts I'd learned from it.
Set and Forget philosphy - spot on concept, but the check lists are brief and not properly explained. Less marketing and sales pitch, more tips and facts please. I guess this bit is a taster in the book to get you to join the website so you become a potential customer of the author's company.
Several 'strategies' - 7-10, 3+1, 1-2-stop, 5 and hold - but they are a bit brief and 'back of the envelope'.
The free Software to track your portfolio could be better
There's almost nothing about practicalities of choosing the right property for BTL, about property development, maximising yield, minimising your tax liability
Be prepared for regular e-mails and even a phone call when you register your details on the website.
If you are thinking about property investment and still making your mind up, this is a good book to get you started & worth the money. It it convinces you to go for it, I would suggest doing a bit more reading before you actually take the plunge
