How does an ordinary person with an ordinary income reach their seven-figure dreams? First they must own their own home – and do it David Bach’s way. The financial coach who has helped millions to finish rich is back with a simple, powerful solution to get rich in real estate. As David says, “Renters stay poor, homeowners get rich, and smart landlords laugh all the way to the bank!”

In his breakout 2004 bestseller, The Automatic Millionaire, David Bach showed why owning your own home is not only smart, it’s the core secret to becoming a millionaire. In his new book, tailored for a Canadian readership, he shows exactly how to make that happen with a simple, automatic plan you can read in an hour and put into place today. Renters will learn how to buy a first home, even with lousy credit and tiny savings. And existing homeowners will find out how to turn the roof over their heads into a powerful investment that doubles, triples, and quadruples in price while you simply enjoy living in it. And while you don’t have to be a landlord to finish rich, if you’re willing to be, David teaches you how simple it really is to buy a rental property even while you’re paying the mortgage on your home.

The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner is brilliantly simple, easy to read, highly motivational with a realistic, take-action method for achieving financial prosperity in real estate, starting now.

Bach offers time-tested tactics on all the essentials, including:

• Why you shouldn’t wait: busting the myths of renting
• Finding a down payment right now using the Automatic Down Payment Solution™
• Choosing the mortgage that is right for you – even with debt, even with imperfect credit
• The secret system for debt-free homeownership: why you must Make It Automatic!
• The Automatic Millionaire Right Place, Right Time, Right Price, Right Program™ for buying and selling
• Learn the Automatic Millionaire Mindset™ and collect “automatic cheques” while you sleep

Listener Opinions

    " Great book, but not as good as the original "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sally | 2/6/2014

    " There was a really good lesson in this book wich made me hopeful. It was a narrative of a couple who never sold their first home but rented it out and they became very weatlthy by the time they were retired. This encourages me because since we are renting our first house ONLY because it didn't sell, that maybe it will be better for us financially in the future. Overall, I was pretty disappointed in this book. Most of the book was about how to shop for and buy a house. Most things I knew already because I have gone through that two times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Marie | 1/27/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 1/2/2014

    " I read this just out of college, and it gave me some great ideas. It is a realistic approach to how an "average Joe" can get ahead and become a multi-property owner in his/her lifetime. Very doable! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri Fosse | 1/1/2014

    " Great resource for learning how to capitalize on home purchases as investments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/26/2013

    " I am on a self-help frenzy, and this series of books have been thought provoking and inspirational if you are looking to improve your current financial situation. I would not say these are the end all be all in finance books, but definitely worth reading if financial planning is up your alley! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly Vipond | 12/22/2013

    " I normally love Bach's stuff, but I thought this one was pretty bare-bones and there were some things I thought were off-mark (but what do I know--I rent!). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daisy81 | 11/9/2013

    " His main secret is...Don't sell your first home, rent it and use the money to pay for your second home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie C | 11/4/2013

    " David Bach's very simple concepts of savings, applied to investment in real estate. A great book for anyone who is almost ready to start looking for a house but still has fear that it's an unreachable or dangerous endeavour. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan Dunning | 10/15/2013

    " It was an ok book but the chapter on mortgages felt like it went on forever. And, I doubt half those mortgages are even offered now that the economy tanked. There were good ideas in the book, but I was hoping for something more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 10/9/2013

    " Helped fill in the gaps of my knowledge of mortgage types & financial jargon. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 6/17/2013

    " I think his books are written on an 8th grade level and should be read by high schoolers as a class assignment. However, for adults in 2011 they are desperately outdated now. Maybe if you have never read one they are ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 5/31/2013

    " Some things in here I know I'm going to use! The best part about this book is that the author repeats many times, that people who buy lots of houses just to flip them are stupid jerks who ruin it for everyone else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ideen Solhtalab | 4/16/2013

    " Again, excellent read. Less awesome than his original, but convincing arguments/tips for home ownership. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Edward Monrad | 1/7/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 12/7/2012

    " This book is great for beginners that just want to learn what options are out there. This book provides a detailed description of loan options in easy to understand terms. This book is perfect for everyone to read before embarking on any home ownership transactions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dena Harris | 10/3/2012

    " I think this is a good book if you want to increase your understanding on making money (long-term) by means of owning homes-I would much rather read something entertaining though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy Kuczak | 9/2/2012

    " Although this book is sort of basic on some of its messages, it is quite inspiring to get people to buy their first home. I even put a deposit on my first condo within a few months after reading this book the first time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 8/12/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/10/2011

    " This book contains some good advice for buying a home and is also a convincing arguement as to why homeowning is a good long term investment. It will also make you think twice about selling your house versus holding onto it as a rental property. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Porsche | 6/22/2011

    " Not my usual type of read, but after I was given this as a gift, I powered through it. Worth it. I still mentally reference this as I manage my finances, and at 19, I think I'm doing pretty well in setting myself up for the future as well as taking care of myself now. "

    " I like David Bach...his premise? Pay yourself first...not at the end of the month IF you happen to have something left over...PAY YOURSELF FIRST!!! That's it! If it's taken out before you ever see it, you will never miss it. Good, practical book. It actually makes you believe it's possible. "
