Let's Get Real: A realistic approach to investing in property in any market
By Luke Harris
Major Street Publishing, $29.99
Let's Get Real invites readers to learn the facts about property investing.
It starts by encouraging you to clarify your current financial and personal situation; then
Fast-forward and define what you want life to look like in years to come; and
Develop a wealth creation plan to achieve the lifestyle you desire when you no longer want to work.
The authors concentrate on the 'why to' rather than the 'how to', believing that once you have your mindset focused, your goals set and an understanding of the work involved, then the nuts and bolts of property investing are secondary.
The book examines why property is still the best way to create wealth, despite tighter lending criteria and lower affordability. It reviews the challenges other generations faced, giving current property investors some perspective.
With cartoons, graphics and motivational quotes throughout, this book is an easy read, but it's not always easy to read - the authors ask you some hard questions along the way. They believe they have to - it's all part of 'getting real' about property investing to make sure you get real results.
