Robert Kiyosaki...advocates non-traditional styles of investing such as tax lien certificates and buying property with zero downpayment and then renting it out.

I thought you could only buy property with zero down if you met certain criteria, one of which is that you must be occupying the building. And even if this isn't a stipulation for zero down, why wouldn't you want to put down at least 20%? You're still able to charge the same rent, save money by not paying PMI, take advantage of depreciation by renting, and with equity, pay less interest, and have more borrowing power.
