  1. Hi Bob, Here's a thread that might be useful: I'm in the frame of mind at the moment, but I'm keen to start building up more of a practical view at the time of the actual viewing, to be able to make quicker decisions of the opportunity of a property. Let me know how you get on. Ed
  2. Hi All, I know this is an old post and I'm not sure if you are all still active on here, but it would be great to hear more about your property investments in East Anglia. I'm originally from Ipswich and I'm planning on moving back to Saffron Walden at the end of the year. I'm keen to start investing again, I have 4 Btl's in SW London, but keen to get as much local knowledge as possible on hot spots in East Anglia, and where are the best areas for yields. On the grape vine, I've heard about Wisbech and potential with train line reopening into Cambrid
  3. Hello, Does any one have any recommended resources for managing and acquiring commercial property? e.g. Books, forums, podcasts communities etc? I've done the usual Amazon search, but these look very legal based: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Commercial-Property-Legal-Practice-Guides/dp/1912363135/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_14_img_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=17YMG7FQNEQPKCCDMQ4E The Robs have done a few podcasts on Commercial, http://thepropertyhub.net/tpp117-how-to-get-started-in-commercial-property/ but 98% of content here is resi. Thanks Ed D
  4. Hi All Hope you can help here. I was out of the country for 10 months working abroad and returned in June 2015. Trying to get a standard BTL mortgage on a deal at the moment, but have been told that a lot of lenders want 3 years residential history in the UK. While I was abroad, bills were still being paid in the UK, bank accounts were open and active and I had post directed to my parent's address, so there credit history should have continued. Have any others experienced this issue? is it just specific lenders that restrict borrowing?
  5. Hi Simon. Yep, certainly interesting to me, so happy to be involved in testing. How are you marketing https://www.patma.co.uk/prospector/ ? Are you driving any traffic to it to get active users? Ed
  6. Hi Andrew South of the river I would recommend http://matthewsestates.co.uk/ They are local to me and pretty trust worthy. Not sure if they cover Horfield, but worth giving them a call and potentially onward recommendations. Ed
  7. Hi Ben. Which Rd, The Chase? I bought in Clapham North in 2010 and have seen good Capital growth. This has certainly tailed off into 2017 as the London market has cooled. Have you offered on the property, or is this speculative? Ed
  8. Hi Andrew I imagine you will certainly get lower rates through PB without the high street premises or full time staff. Depends if they have a decent local network to be able to deal with repairs, or other tenant complaints if full managed. I'm Bristol based - Totterdown. Where's the location of your flat? I know a few of the agents here in South Bristol, if you want to compare some alternatives on costs. Ed
  9. Ok, well sounds good. Hope all goes well with it. I would be interested in testing private Beta, if he wanted to get any early feedback. Ed
  10. Hi James I think I've met you a few times at the Bristol hub meets in Channings. How have you been getting on in Newport? Any more bought since the first development? Ed
  11. Hi Tim Thinking about Newport as well. The scapping of the toll is certainly going to help: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/16/theresa-may-pledges-scrap-severn-bridge-tolls/ Did you get any further since you posted here? Ed
  12. Thanks James a. Would be interesting to try and build an MVP for it based on that 100 calls per hour limit, to see if it could work, with an acceptable degree of accuracy. Are there any devs you know out there that have an interest in property, that could could see if they would interested in building it? Or potentially through upwork/freelancer? Ed
  13. Hi All I was wondering if anyone has come across any browser extensions similar to Property Bee or Property Track, but specifically for easily estimating a potential yield of a property on a particular street? It would obviously be more difficult for rural locations, or areas where there is little precedent of existing yields, but for city research, with vanilla btl, I think this would be a really useful tool. e.g. researching different areas, and without having to need to keep switching from different tabs with Rightmove open, one with rent and one for properties fo
