  1. Hi Guys So I am looking to purchase a BTL property in Birmingham. This will be my first property. It is a 3 bed end of terrace about 30 mins from the city centre. I viewed a property this week which is all ready to go in terms of renting. It has been painted, new carpets fitted, no chain etc. The property is marketed for 155K. A property on the same street has sold for the same amount. I am thinking of offering 140K, putting down 35%. 49,000 - deposit 1,000 - legals 600 - Stamp Duty 300 - mortgage fees etc 50,900
  2. Hi All Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Deeps and recently signed up to the site. Wanting to get into property investment for a number of years but now have taken the steps to do so. Attended a "course" taster recently which opened my eyes to the investing world, but thankfully after reading posts on here and other sites did not really opt for the package which would make me a millionaire in the matter of months. Saying that it was interesting to see the different kind of avenues to take into property investments... Have not panned out a strate

I have extensive knowledge of digital & direct marketing, event planning and marketing research. I am CIM level 4 qualified and I have a passion for anything property, finance and marketing.

  5. Hi Guys, I'm looking to invest in Birmingham and ideally looking at buying terraced houses in Great Barr, Edgbaston or Solihull areas and would be looking for any property sourcers that deal in these areas or anyone that could recommend a property sourcers. I'm looking to buy one property every quarter of the next five years. Would also consider a JV in or around the Birmingham area with me providing the capital. Regards, Usman
  6. Hi all, Can any of you recommend a property sourcing and refurb company that specialises in Birmingham? They can be one and the same or separate. I'm currently an expat, living and working in East Asia and am looking for an armchair investment in Birmingham. Many thanks in advance!
  7. Hi all, I'm looking to move to Birmingham in the new year from London. I'm going to be relocating to the HSBC office in Birmingham and I'm looking for a letting agent in Birmingham, who specialise in city centre apartment. I've seen http://fleetmilne.co.uk/rent/ but I was wondering if there were any agents people would recommend. Thanks, Jay
  8. Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a property to flip in Birmingham and was wondering if anyone else either flips or invests there? If so I wondered if they would be able to help me out with regards to areas to avoid, or potentially good areas to look at? By budget is really around the 100K - 120K mark and I am looking to make 20% profit at the end of the project. I am currently analysing the area and viewing properties in various locations but obviously it is a big place and this can be very time consuming so I am looking to try and speed up my next deal and be more efficient with my vi

  10. Hi everyone My name is Emma and I am new to Property Hub! I love everything property and am looking to network with people who can help me to source houses to buy in Birmingham. I have a 5 year plan to buy 20 by 2021 which will be four properties a year. Ideally looking to buy houses within half a mile of city center Birmingham. My main challenge is time to source properties as I have a job that requires long hours. My role is commission based to looking to invest between £100-£125k a year in property. My strategy is Buy to Let, i have bought a few houses personally and
  11. Hi Does anyone have a recommendation for an account or accountancy firm in the Solihull / Birmingham area? I am planning on buying my first property early next year in an Ltd, and want to get going with putting the foundations in place. Struggling to find anything through Google / local press etc. that specifies experience with property. Thanks Jack
  12. Hi All, I am currently living in London and looking for a property to flip in the Birmingham/Peterborough/Northampton area. Due to the distance and time required, I am looking for a sourcing agent to help find me a BMV deal. Does anyone have any recommendations of sourcing agents they have used in any of these areas? Thanks in advance Aaron
  13. Hi guys First time poster, so please be nice ;-) Wonder if anyone has a good recommendation for an accountant (specialising in property of course) in or around the Birmingham area? We need a bit of help and advice setting up our limited company and would be looking for them to advise on this as well as help with our returns etc going forward. Many thanks Dom
  14. Hi, I am fairly new to property investment. To begin my journey, I wanted to start my portfolio with cheaper properties - where there is a decent return. I recently brought a 3 bed terraced property in Birmingham within the B21 area. This is just off soho road, not far from the city centre. From what I can see from rightmove and from speaking to agents, I would get this property rented for about £600 pcm. I think I will be going down the route of renting it as a whole house perhaps to a family. It's not a nice area but people and families still live there and the rent at £600 still provides
  15. Hello! Thank you Rob and Rob for having an internet presence that can't be ignored. I only found out about you a week ago and my life is a new, busy, interesting place I'm a professional model & accidental landlord (as a result of moving out of my London flat to buy a house with my husband, but keeping it on to rent it out). Now I've saved a deposit to do a buy-to-let on purpose this time, and am hoping it'll work out as well as the first, because I need an eventual exit strategy for my day job - modelling is HARD on your joints. I'm hoping to buy in the West Midlands, since I d
  16. Hi! I was wondering if anyone had heard anything good or bad about Cutlass Court in Birmingham City Centre on Granville Street? Apparently it can be quite loud there as it is close to Broad Street. I had just heard actually that it might be dangerous there due to vagrants and drugs! Would anyone have an idea? Thanks!
  17. Hi Hubbers! I think I have asked 3 or 4 questions on The Property Hub now and I am always getting really helpful advice. I'll recap my situation... I am from London and currently living here too. I am a homeowner and I am trying to get into property investment with a friend of mine. We have looked at London - North, South, East, and West and we have decided that it is just too expensive for us. Even on the very outskirts. We have therefore decided to look further afield; in particular in the UK's second city - Birmingham. (This is actually after spending quite a long time looki
  18. Hi Everyone! My name is Jacqueline and I am new to the property world. I have no experience with property but am currently educating myself and trying to gain as much knowledge as I can before making my first deal. Me and my business partner are looking to invest in Birmingham at the moment. Our focus is BMV multi-lets, starting at 3 or 4 bedrooms as it will be our first property. BUT firstly we are trying to get our funding together before anything. This is my current situation! Hopefully I will be updating it before June to I GOT MY FIRST PROPERTY! Has anyone got any advice in parti
  19. Hello I'm Jazz. I live in West London and have 2 buy to let properties. One 3/4 bed house in High Wycombe and another 2 bed new build flat which I recently purchased in Croydon. I'm looking to make my next investment in Birmingham (2 bed flat or house) as I understand the yields are quite high. Any advice would be much appreciated.
