  1. Hi everyone. I'm looking at buying a property in Crewe, refurbing to add value then plan to let it out. The properties I'm looking at are 3 beds within a 1 mile radius to the station. Also quite close to the Odeon and retail park. I just wondered if anyone else has any investment properties in Crewe? A lot of the adverts mention that they are perfect for HMO and I know there are quite a few big companies based in Crewe so I assume there is demand. As this is my first BTL I'd prefer my first not to be a HMO with the implications it comes with. Does anyone have any experience with the standard rental demand? I'm just a bit stuck with whether I'd struggle to let it out as a family house which is putting me off slightly. Any advice or tips welcome! Thanks,
  2. Hey @DerekT thanks for the above. Really useful! Can I just check are the offers above published somewhere? Also this may be a stupid question (so apologies in advance!) but with the asking price in the document I'm assuming this is before they add on their sourcing fee? Cheers,
  3. Hi @onkar hope you're well and don't mind me intruding on this thread/conversation. I'm also on the hunt for somewhere in Leeds, wondered if you could cc me in too? Would be much appreciated. Cheers, Paul
  4. Hi all, hope everyone is well? This is a bit of a random one, but hopefully it will start a bit of a debate as I'm keen to hear other peoples views and thoughts. Two questions really... I've been exploring the Property Hub sourcing service for my first BTL in the North West. I currently live in London and run my own business full time so am a little more limited on time, aside from this even though I have been researching and reading lots of books to up-skill myself - I have the typical paralysis and just can't seem to find the right property, in the right location for the right price myself. Which I'm sure a few people struggle with! So I thought perhaps this was a good place to start for my first property in my portfolio, as I know PH have openly stated on their site that they aim to get between 10-12% discount on new build properties, which automatically covers their £4,995 fee. In brief my strategy is to begin building a property portfolio and within the next 10 years have 20+ properties in there within this time-frame, strategy wise I like the thought of having a mixed approach which would be having some BTL's, then looking at maybe one or two HMO's (once I have more time), then finally looking at some BTS/flipping (when I am in a position to have a more relaxed approach with my current business) - would also be great to hear if anyone has adapted the same or similar approach? I do notice in all of my reading and research it seems people tend to adapt one strategy (either ROI or Capital Growth) and stick to it but in order to reach my financial goals, which I won't go into on here I feel like a mixture of all approaches and strategies is necessary for me to achieve them. I just wondered if anyone on here had any experience with property sourcers, whether it's worth the fee or whether I'm simply better holding out and trying to find it myself. Would be great to see what people think! Thanks,
  5. @simon allen Thanks for confirming. I'd love to chat to you further as I think you could help me with my plans, do you have an email address you could send to me on pm? Thanks
  6. @simon allen Hi Simon hope you're well. On a separate topic but related, would you mind confirming something, is it true if you're not already a HMO owner lenders will require a 50% deposit for the first property? Thanks so much!
