Review

What Steve doesnt know about marketing, systems and the running great house shares probably isnt worth knowing! --Mark and Rob, Progressive Propety

From the Publisher

This book is a great insight into `systems' and `time' and how the House Share Hero has used the former to gain the latter.

Its easy to make the mistake of thinking that just buying a big house with lots of rooms and renting them out is an easy way to make money but many landlords suffer problems, voids, arrears, lost sleep/money and burn out pretty quickly.

It's a skill, an art and only with the right mastery of house shares does the content live up to the headlines.

All the best sports stars, business people and world leaders have coaches and role models, so consider letting the House Share Hero be yours.

I have been in the building trade for a number of years and have looked on in interest as those around me have made a living from owning properties rather than just working on them. I really had given up hope of getting into the buy-to-let market, particularly after the recent bad press relating to the economy. However, since reading this book, I have spent a good deal of time considering what I plan to achieve as opposed to wondering if it could be achieved. My research and planning begins now! Thanks to the author for the inspiration it has given me.

This book in both extremely informative and highly entertaining.
I own a HMO/House Share in quite a working class area and have always found it a real slog. I wrongly thought that bad tenants, bad payers etc were just a way of life for this type of letting.
Using the some of the techniques in the book has made my life much easier. My property makes more money that ever before and both my tenants and I are happier.
Although it's mainly aimed at HMO's, many of the techniques, especially choosing and managing tenants can be applied to single lets.
The book is written in such a way that I felt the content was taken in first time and it's the first property book I have read that made me laugh out loud.
It's harder than ever to make money from property these days but this book makes both possible and a lot easier. Well worth a read.

A good read - I've always wanted to buy to let but was put off as I didn't have the right information to be successful. This book helped me understand what potentially can go wrong and what I need to do to get it right. Loved the bits about the tenants, very funny!

House Share Hero, by Steve Julien, follows the anything but ordinary life of an HMO landlord. It reveals how, over the last decade or so, Steve has built up a substantial portfolio of house shares, left the rat rate and now looks after over eighty tenants -- yet only works a few hours a week. An HMO is a House of Multiple Occupation, where multiple, unrelated people rent rooms in a large house, usually sharing communal amenities like the lounge, kitchen and bathroom -- a student house share is a prime example.

* House Share Hero is written in an engaging (and often humorous) storybook style and will teach you how to:
* Avoid the common pitfalls facing HMO landlords.
* Find the best tenants easily and efficiently.
* Achieve the highest occupancy possible rates, thus maximising profit.
* Avoid expensive management fees.
* Automate your business to run itself over 90% of the time.

The last point alone, makes this book worthwhile. Most new investors I meet want Property Investment to help `quit the day job' so they can pursue their dreams. HMOs can be a time consuming beast if not managed properly, so it's particularly important to systemise and automate as much as you can.

Brilliant book. A very quick, easy read.

A very informative book written in an interesting humorous style. Living in a house share, I am starting to save to get my own place. I worry about not being able to pay for my mortgage therefore, want to learn as much as I can about renting rooms out myself. The book gave me useful insights into property investment and potential ways to increase my wealth - I am now confident that I too can start in this business! I would highly recommend this book.

This book was recommended to me by a friend. And although I don't usually get much time for reading, I did it as a favour. However, I was pleasantly surprised, as it did not read at all like the boring 'estate agent' stuff that I expected. In fact, it was just like having a chat with a mate down the pub.

I am a home owner and have never bought-to-let; I have always firmly believed that homes should be bought to live in. But I also have sons and daughters who, in the current market, would have no chance of living anywhere if it were not for 'House Share Heroes' who offer decent accommodation at affordable rents.

There is also another underlying message in this book - not just for landlords, tenants or home owners, but for everyone who has ever been a victim of the 'credit trap'. Read it and find out.

Great book. If only there were more business books like this out there. This was recommended to me by a friend as a must read & I couldn't agree more. Loads of practical advice about how to be a successful landlord, as well as some superbly funny stories about some interesting tenants! I've really been inspired by the book & have started using some of the strategies with great results.

The author really seems like a nice guy, wonderfully colourful anecdotes and I feel he's a very good person to learn from. I've been doing a similar thing in NZ and my downfall is systemising everything and this guy is definitely one up on me in that regard. Stealing all his procedures.

The downside is, I can see just how much this guy knows his onions, I know what it feels like to have read practically every book out there and passing on all these gems of information in one go is a real challenge, I know, I've tried advising friends. The flow of ideas can be pretty sketchy in places and he does go off on a few tangents which while entertaining, can make it difficult to summarise all the information you're taking in. With the ideas compartmentalised it could be a really special book.

Also learned about how difficult finance is in the UK. I've never had to put cash down apart from my first one, I'd find that a real challenge. Massively over-regulated too, who's the council to say what sort of tenants to have in your house?

If the authors near Leeds or visiting, I'd love to buy a you a pint!
