Managing Your Money 

How to invest in property

Investing in property has been an immensely profitable activity over the last 10 years. Investors in all types of property – from buy to let flats to industrial parks – have been rewarded handsomely for their efforts.

Over the last 12 months, however, the property investment scene has changed. Unfortunately, the easy money is no longer there as both the commercial and residential property markets have taken a tumble. But that doesn't mean that there aren't profits to be had for those willing to choose their investments carefully.

Our complete guide to property investment starts with introductions to the worlds of commercial and residential property. Then we move on to the detail – how to use debt to boost your profits, how to buy at an auction, the practical aspects of owning a property, and how to invest in student accommodation and overseas properties.

Then we take a look at the easier ways into property investment, specifically investing in property funds and property investing via the stock market.

Finally, we look at the outlook for residential and commercial property in 2008.
