The ultimate guide to investing in property...and making a million!

Everyone's looking to get rich, and a lot of those people are looking at investing in property as the way to get there. But watch out—making money in real estate isn't always as easy as it might look. At least, not without Your Property Success with Renovation in hand, that is. Written by Jane Slack-Smith, a true investment guru who's put together her own multi-million dollar property portfolio, this is the ultimate guide to making the housing market work for you.

Loaded with no-nonsense advice to help you avoid the traps that so many would-be real estate investors fall into, Your Property Success with Renovation introduces a unique three-pronged, low-risk investing strategy. Rather than focusing on fast money, the book encourages a low-risk plan—find an area with above average capital growth, buy below market value, and build value through renovation—that will help you build a strong, profitable real estate portfolio.

  • Introduces "The Trident," a new way of approaching investing in real estate that focuses on low-risks and high rewards, not fast money
  • Written by real estate portfolio expert Jane Slack-Smith, who transformed an initial investment of $45k into a multi-million dollar fortune using the techniques outlined in this book
  • Shows you how to get the most out of the real estate market by emphasizing the value of property renovation

With just two investment properties and one renovation the average Australian can put a million dollars in the bank within fifteen years, and mortgage broker Jane Slack-Smith is here to show you how.
