Did you know that property is one of the three time-tested ways for people of varied financial means to build wealth (the others are shares and small business)? The authors of the latest edition of Property Investing for Dummies advocate a long-term view. They caution investors against short-term property investing that promises overnight wealth.

This second edition has been updated to help guide you through the latest property issues. It aims to provide you with enough information to make sound and sensible decisions.

It covers: how to take advantage of super’s tax concessions to potentially build tax-free property wealth; how to use new gearing rules to boost returns and increase diversification; the pros and cons of hiring a buyer’s advocate; how to navigate the tricky legal requirements for SMSFs and property gearing.
