He offers a strategy for profitable property investment along with a wealth of practical advice: how, what and when to buy, the negotiation process, finance, gearing, tax considerations, how to value property, etc. He offers tips on seeking out bargain properties and enhancing their value, and guidelines for managing properties once they are part of your portfolio.
