"Bulgarian Property Book: Success Stories From Readers"
Single mum, Jo Losack, who raided her kids savings to
invest in Bulgarian property and doubled their investment
in 4 months has helped other Brits succeed in finding
their Bulgarian adventures too.
After she returned to the UK, having bought two houses
for £3,500 each she then faced the challenge of how to
raise some more money to get them both renovated. She
decided to 'package her knowledge' and write a book
about her experience of how to buy property in Bulgaria.
Her book, "A Brits Scrapbook: How To Buy Property in
Bulgaria" shares simple tips for choosing a property and
tackling the various hurdles involved in the buying process.
Her book has been being plucked from the shelves for just
less than a year now with some fantastic reader successes.
Claire, one of Jo's readers who found her dream 100 year

inserted all for £5,000. My lovely neighbour Venka is
looking after the turkeys! Pleased? You bet. I have a s

the princely sum of £8,000!"

NOTES FOR EDITORS
Jo and her two children , Johnny, 12 and Sam 8, have some
fantastic tales to tell about their adventures (see below
"I will never forget the sheer panic - it was dark and I
drove the wrong way up a three lane motorway. The police
started to chase us - but I managed to get away!"
"After a three hour trek up a mountain, passing NOBODY on
the trail, we reached the top with stunning scenery and my
12 year old exclaimed - blow playstation and the telly -
this is the best day of my life!"
"Driving around was a nightmare - all the road signs were in
Cyrillic and to add further confusion, if you ask the way,
Bulgarians nod their heads to say no and shake their heads
to say yes - getting lost was beginning to become a habit!"
