For STR beginners. A better read than a listen.

Best to be read as a hard copy book, you need the visuals and links referenced. (I wish I’d know there was a PDF attached instead of scrambling to make notes and merely guess what narrator was referring to.) It would be helpful to download the PDF and use WITH audio. Beginner level basics here, not much new that’s not common knowledge or found elsewhere I don’t think, other than a few helpful software referrals. Narrator not the greatest. Book is very short, not the best value for the price in my opinion.

Great quick advice for the beginner

There is some great introductory advice for the beginning investor. Well worth the listen. It is hard to rate the narration of an informative book except to say that the speaking was clear and precise.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review

Wish I had this in 2007

I used to own a condo right before the 2008 economic slump - and I wish I had read this book then... would have prevented a lot of financial pain from entering my life. If you’re looking to get into rental properties, educate yourself first! Thanks for producing this book!

Hop over pitfalls and land in profits!

It’s no secret that many former employees and business opportunists alike have been battered by the pandemic and are actively seeking new investment and business opportunities. Many have looked into the rental game, and some have flourished. The ones that did definitely educated themselves with fantastic titles such as this and graciously hopped over the fatal pitfalls commonplace in business. Highly recommended that you do so too. Rental profits here we come!

Great information !

As someone who is looking to get into buying rental properties, I found this book very insightful. This book prepared me for things I didn't even know I would need to consider before buying the property. Anyone looking to get into investment properties should give this a listen, you might want to keep a pen handy to jot down some notes as well. The author really covered all the bases, I appreciate this.

Full of very useful tips!

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook as it is full of useful tips throughout.

Type of property to invest - what are the implications of having a smaller property versus a larger one. The type of costs associated with extra amenities like a pool.

How to look at the second property - the way you see your second property will dictate how you invest on it and deal with challenges that arise when things with the renter do not go as smooth.

I also thought the narration flowed nicely.

Great tips!

This book had great ideas for how to make sure your vacation rental business stays in the black. For example, if you buy towels and sheets in bulk, you can take advantage of bulk pricing (something I didn't think of, and now am excited that this book gave me fresh ideas). Lot of great tips and ideas.

Nice collection of ideas in a clear format.

The points are clear and well laid out and help me as a landlord. I have been a landlord since 2001 for long term rentals.
