Boom In Books On Property

Recommended Posts

I came accross this nice article about a boom in books about property.

Is there a housing bubble? Maybe. Real estate book bubble? Most definitely. Amazon.com now lists 16,177 publications with the words "real estate" in the title. A whopping 143 of those titles also contain the word "million" or "millionaire," just in case you had any doubt about the objective.

There are books about cash flow, foreclosures, property flipping, tax liens, leases and appraisals. There are books with tips for becoming a landlord or a real estate agent.

Are You Missing the Real Estate Boom? they ask. Want to know the millionaire investor's tax secrets, financing secrets or just plain secrets for How to Become Wealthy in Your Spare Time? For those who think bigger, there's Trump Strategies for Real Estate: Billionaire Lessons for the Small Investor

As a librarian I have seen requests for books about buying property, home and abroad go down in the past year.

I have seen more books published about bankruptcy and redundancy during the same period and I have bought several of them. They have been borrowed pretty consistently.

Incidentally, books on bankruptcy are often not returned. :(

Good point. Perhaps we need to change the rules for bankrupts. Everybody else does.

By the way - the Police Training Manual goes missing from the library fairly regularly...  :rolleyes:

I dont suppose theres much chance of me borrowing the encylopedia britiannica?

Back in Jan, there were literally shelves of property mags in WH Smiths in Reading including absolutely weird ones eg concentrating on buying property in Eastern Europe. Don't seem to be stocking so many now though.

Lol, I remember that one programme they did about investing in Bulgaria on C4, one property even included its own donkey, I thought that had wider metaphorical connotations.
