Property asset management involves both the day to day oversight of rental properties as well as an ability to maximise the potential of the portfolio through forward thinking and practical planning. To be successful in property management, the individuals must be flexible and proactive while having a robust knowledge of technical, financial and legal aspects of the leasing system. These managers can have clients ranging from the individual property owner to large international commercial ventures. In Property Asset Management Douglas Scarrett sets out the principles and practice of managing properties for these disparate clients and their varying needs. As well as the basic theory, the book discusses the process of active management, the strategic objectives, performance measurement and the various financial and operational information to enable comprehensive reporting of a high quality.

This third edition has been extensively rewritten to include developments in property management since the last edition in 1995, especially in the changing nature of the landlord tenant relationship. Scarrett is an experienced academic and professional who has created a practical guide for all those involved in the management of property. It has additionally been written to cater for the needs of RICS accredited and business courses provided by Universities in the UK and overseas. This book also provides readers with an overview of the legal aspects of land ownership and tenancy arrangements.
When Bob Boog finally escaped his family home and the constant chatter about Real Estate, it was to attend UCLA on a merit scholarship. Finally, he thought, he was free from a business he had no desire to be a part of.
But on one of his frequent ‘laundry visits’ to the family home, he was suddenly presented with a ticket for a Real Estate seminar and felt compelled to attend. It was something which changed his opinions, his plans for the future and his life.
Inspired by the words of Real Estate guru Tom Hopkins, Bob decided to get his licence and studied harder for the exam than he did for some of the ones on his course, passing it on his first attempt.
And then, armed with this new-found ability and a desire to become the ‘Rookie of the Year’ he entered the world he had sworn he never would.
The Real Estate Rookie is the often ridiculous, sometimes absurd and always hilarious account of his journey from someone who would cringe at the very mention of Real Estate, to one who lived and breathed every moment of it.
“A fun read. I warmly recommend The Real Estate Rookie.”
