  1. Hi Michelle, I operate in Glasgow but i am familiar with the West Lothian market having owned a letting agents there for 7 years. Its very wise to only invest in your local area.

My experience is things can go easily wrong and there is nothing worse than falling out with family. So be careful. Make sure your boiler gets serviced every year lol. David
  2. Thanks for the responses guys. I would bet that most people would respond like this. I would offer a wee smidgen of advice and suggest people view the accumulation of property wealth with other things in mind. Most people are fed up in their daily work.

  5. I am coming back to property after pressing the pause button for about 9 years. I was heavily involved in forums and groups the first time round and am intrigued by the current posting topics. They are exactly the same as pre 2008. People are desperate to accumulate property. To find the Holy Grail of sourcing cheap BMV property and will do and believe anything to help them in their quest. I started when i was 17. I ended in 2008 with 600 before the banks took them back. During that journey i pretty much did the same things, went the same places and bought the same shoe
  6. Hi, I am joining the forum and would like to introduce myself. My name is David and am from Glasgow. I am looking to share stories and experiences and maybe offer some help to those who are starting a property journey. Things have changed but principles are the same. To get to the bit that is relevant i am/was/are a property person and have been for nearly 30 years. The short story is this. I was brought up in a council estate. I bought my first home at 17. I eventually owned 600 (six hundred) properties by 2007. I also owned a chain of letting agents, estate agents,
