Is it really that easy…?

I recently had a Damacean moment when I realised that my 30 years in the property business had been wasted because all I really needed to do was read 2 pages of the Money Mail on Wednesday 29 May.  As a regular reader of the Daily Mail and any other property section in any other paper, I never fail to be surprised by the journalists who offer expert advice on how to become a millionaire – for the price of a newspaper – who don’t leave the world of the Fourth Estate to develop their own empire.  Every page that you read, is buy-to-let, buy-to-let and the money will come rolling in.  It may well do, but it isn’t as simple as buying a newspaper.  The latter may well encourage people to enter the buy-to-let market, which can only be a good thing for estate agents, but the professional experience of these agents is what will assist someone in becoming the next Donald Trump.  Don’t be afraid to ask.  Of course there are some unscrupulous agents who will charge you for walking through the door, but there are many agents who will view your enquiry as the chance to develop a long term business arrangement and will gladly offer you advice.  Anyway, I have to sign off as I am reading an article on brain surgery with the plan of booking in my first patient a week on Thursday.
