I really like this idea, all too often I think we assume that because we working in the industry that everybody knows what we know about property buying and property investing. It is all too easy to assume it is easy.
This book uses great clear language and is a great consumer branding device to get the message out that MagicBricks is a key partner in buying property.
Feels like a sequel of how to a sell you home would be of great value, that could demonstrate the benefits of online marketing using Magic Bricks including premium advertising.
