  1. Thanks tchughes. A spreadsheet would be a great help. I agree with your main reason for preferring students, as far as I can see this is the greatest benefit of a student vs professional let (even if the potential yield is slightly lower). It’s more than made up for in lower void periods. And would definitely be my preference. The main thing holding me back currently is the short term effect of COVID on the universities and potential travel of international students, I think long term will be ok.

  2. Hi I have been investing/managing single BTL's for 10+ years in South Wales and am considering moving in to investing in HMO's possibly in the same area.

And am currently in the process of buying my first HMO.

  5. Hi Just a quick introduction from an 'accidental' investor. I currently have 4 BTL properties all in South Wales. These have been bought over 12 years with no specific goal or strategy in mind, only the thought that they would earn me money both monthly and in the future. Only since coming across the Property Hub on Twitter and listening to/reading it's content have I decided on a goal of a specific monthly income figure to allow me the freedom to leave my job and invest full time and possibly manage property, as I have experience of this. My future strategy will mainly include
