    Default My Favorites: Essential Threads for New Investors (and old)

    Hi Guys

    As I answer peoples questions here I often find myself spending 10-15 minutes searching sometimes fruitlessly for that post or thread that I remember that answered the question perfectly. I'm also concerned that overwhelmed by the sheer bulk of it, many people might miss the wonderful threads and info that can be found off the front page of each forum, in the dark dim and sometimes dusty recesses of PropertyTalk!

    So I thought what I might do is attempt to list in various categories some of what I think are the most essential reads for new investors (And re-reads occasionally for the rest of us)

    I've cut this up into several posts (Who knew there was a maximum post length? I'm betting only Mini-Mogul ever hit it )

    Please feel free to join me with your suggestions, and if I agree with you I will add your suggestions to the list. Also if you think any of these shouldn't be on the list for example if the book suggestions or the links are repetitive or no longer work let me know

    Thus far I have only searched all the way through the property investment (NZ) forum. I'll do the others over the next wee while. If anyone wants to volunteer to do a forum for me... Just post the sorted links or PM me with them.

    Of course my advice to new investors and people who are new to PT is to READ IT ALL! But if you don't have the time then these are what I think are the must reads:
