Golden Rules for Buy to Let investing - Simon Zutshi

Now is a fantastic time to be investing in property as long as you know what you are doing. In this article I would like to share my 5 Golden Rules which will help you minimise the risks of investing and maximise your profit. 1.

U.S. Lease Options Queen, Wendy Patton, interview

I was very excited to be asked to exclusively interview Wendy Patton and Mark Jackson. Listen to the 20 minute audio: [audio:http://www.justdoproperty.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/rec_mgjwa68_09_Feb_2010_15_05_16.mp3|titles=Wendy Patton Interview] I would say that Wendy is certainly a lease options expert.  She has done over 600 lease options deals in the US and written 4 books on the subject.  Mark Jackson was also on the call, as Wendy and Mark are working closely together. Mark has had outstanding success in the UK using Property Options and he founded Property Option Expert in 2009. They shared their vision for the UK with me and exclusively revealed that they are writing a book together, called Lease Options Made simple. The audio is just 20 minutes long and it gives an interesting picture of lease options both in the US and the UK.
