Steve McKnight, recognised property expert and self-made investing millionaire, says, "You don't need to be a genius to be wealthy. All that's required is that you implement a system that's been proven to work, and commit to continually talking action."

A shocking truth about real estate is that 92 per cent of investors only own one or two properties. Put bluntly - the majo

Boring and mostly useless. Spent some of the book reading a great way to invest only to get to the end of the chapter and he says "but you probably won't be able to do that anymore because the market.. Yada yada yada" ...more

Maybe I should rate it 5 simply because it opened my eyes to many other ways to make money related to residential estate.

Its mostly about positive gearing properties, finding properties that give you money each week versus negative gearing.

Its an older book and I tried to think about properties being $44k and that is so far gone. The idea of buying 60 properties in a trip to NZ where prices were $25k a property sounds insane. I honestly couldn’t help but think that it was this kind of behaviou

This is an incredibly helpful read if you want to know more about real estate investing in Australia. The author has plenty of credibility seeing as he's actually gone out and done this long enough to reach financial independence. The book is easy to read and covers plenty of important topics:

Reveals the truth about negative gearing (not as great as we're taught to think it is).

Dives into the different legal entities used for owning investment property such as partnerships, companies and trusts

I must say the title of this book is the best part. Kudos for selecting this title. It really got my attention.

Steve is extremely knowledgeable and has put in a lot of effort writing this book. I found it far too technical though and didn't really get anything new out of it.

A classic book on property investing by the great Steve McKnight. Although written more than 10 years ago, the principles are timeless and can be applied. My takeaway is that opportunity is open to all, but not all are open to opportunity. Continue to learn and hard work will pay off.

This book contains a good amount of applicable knowledge about real estate investing that transcends temporal change, however, a lot of the advice given is no longer relevant as it pertains to market conditions which no longer exist.

Incredibly detailed book on the Australian property market. I have largely skipped the country specific details, but picked up bits and pieces on deal making, property aquisition/management.

Good first property book. Read in 2021 and as such info is outdated in many respects but is also still very relevant in others. A worthwhile read.

Have read this one before although re-reading it a few years later presents a new perspective now.

Steve mixes the wealth (pun intended) of experience along with some case studies at the end to see them put into practice.

While the strategies may be necessarily be as applicable in today's Australian housing market, McKnight's mindset and approach to wealth creation in all markets makes this a must read for any successful property investor

It has been a while since I read this but I still remember it as a good intro book and great chapter on goal setting. Better then 0 to 360 properties in 7 years. It is a must read for any Australian wishing to invest in property

Great book for residential property investors.

Some of the information is outdated but there is a lot of good info worth reading the book for.

Any smart investor will get there money back many times over listening to advice from this book.

I found it difficult to get into. Perhaps I need to re-read it to see if I find it better the second time around.

This book made me realise that if I want to achieve financial freedom I need to buy positive cash flow properties. The book explains how to do this well.
