  1. So. I’ve finally managed to figure out what the right strategy is for me once my deposit is saved. May father did tell me that he was willing to borrow me £20,000 towards my first project but as much as i have a great relationship with him I feel borrowing money from him for a first project is not a good idea. I can currently save 1,500 a month so it’s a better idea to just wait 17 months for a healthy pot to start. My strategy is for my first property to get a BTL mortgage and buy a house with the BRR model in mind as it’s slightly less risky than getting bridging for my firs
  2. Hey! As the title suggests I am looking for recommendations of resources of informations in regards to flipping and renovating houses. Anything from books, podcasts and websites would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Martin

  4. Hi all, I want to set up a HMO within the next 12 months between 5 and 8 rooms for the professionals close to a town. Good spec and furnished as I want to get the most out of my investment. I live in cannock and I would be willing to sent one up within 20 miles of this area, I'm thinking a big old end terraced property that is in a really bad state. I'm just finishing off my first flip and it should be on the market in 2 weeks time. Im in the building trade and have good people around me I just need to get all the info together now so I'm not hanging around so I can get started ASAP.
  5. Hi All, This is my first post on the property hub. I’m a relatively small time landlord with 6 btl properties in the Derby area. I’ve been expanding the family while I’ve been building this portfolio and am now a full time mum to 3 (and part time teacher). My goal is to reach 15 properties in the next 5 years and I am thinking of branching out and doing some flips/ renovations along the way to help me achieve this target. So far we have played it really safe and only bought properties that have required relatively little work (due to ‘mum-ing’). consequently I have yet to amass a
  6. Hi everyone. Living in Leicestershire. Been listening to podcast for 6 months now. It's changed my view on flipping - which is what I've been effectively doing without thinking deliberately about it. Moved 4 times in 6 years now! Realised how much money is to be made...but we're tired of living in the same house we're flipping all the time! Paid a visit to RMP in London for a tete-a-tete with Paul and I've started to get my head round investing. Our house goes on the market at the end of the month and we are in a quandary about our next move... Will come out of it with about £110k. What do yo
  7. Hi all A friend and I are planning to go into the property business together, something we have discussed for several years. He has been involved in the building trade for over a decade with a small sole trader business that he runs, which has given him extensive knowledge of most of the jobs that would need done refurbishing a house. My expertise is more on the business side, I'm very process driven, and I have a strong financial background and some capital to invest to get things going, so we have a good complimentary skill set. We plan to sit down and flesh our our 5
  8. Hi - i'm new to the property game. I'm looking for properties (flats initially) to refurb and sell on... i think it's called flipping !?! Can't afford anything close to London unless I'm extremely lucky Looking at areas like the NW, Nottinghamshire and the Midlands.. I'm a cash buyer with a fair budget to make a modest start hopefully with a decent profit. I have a really good builder but he's based in London where I am so to keep costs down I will have to find reputable builders in the areas that I buy in... Basically any advice and info will be gratefully received
  9. Hi Everbody, My name is Adam and I'm based in Herts. Keen to get into property after a lifelong yearning has finally got the better of me. Hoping to sell my house, release some equity and then get into buy to let and rennovation. I'm 35 years old and currently work in Pharma. Many things to consider like, "where I am going to live while I do this????" Minor details, I'll worry about those later! I work in project management so like to stay organised and I have a friend who recently inherited some money so I may look at some projects with her. Currently at th
  10. I would be very interested in talking to anyone who has experience of flipping properties around the Guildford area (10 mile radius). As per Rob’s suggestion, I’m happy to buy lunch for anyone with experience who would be happy to talk about their successes! Thanks, Charlotte

I am a home owner with equity tied up in my residential home that i would like to use to start my investment portfolio.

  12. Hello, I am interested in investing in someone who has a track record of flipping, I have around £30,000 to invest and would like to not just give the money but help out. My goal is to grow my investment over time while learning how to become a competent property flipper myself. The area I'd like to invest in would preferably be in the North but anywhere in the UK for the first 1 or 2 would be fine. How would you go about this? Are there any resources you can share? Thanks!
  13. Goals - To have 75K deposit, whereas currently we only have 30K Financial position: 30K inheritance Zero properties owned No real way of generating lump sums quickly Help needed: Hi We are trying to get on the property ladder, but more importantly, we want to OWN our own building/warehouse to run our dance school from, as we have reached our limit with members and are desperate for it to grow. The warehouse will cost anything up to 250K meaning potential £75K deposit. We are thinking about doing fundraising with our dance school, but after listening to the property podcast I
  14. This is my first post, so hello! Right, i'm 29 years old and have just come into £400,000. That truly is a life changing amount of money and I want to invest wisely while making some sort of income from it. Obviously, property is the first thing that comes to mind. I've been doing some research but there are so many options to choose from. What would some seasoned property people do in my situation? Buy to let? Buy, renovate and sell on? What in you guy's opinion are the best sources of information? I can quite easily google and find plenty of sites but where do you thi
  15. Hi everyone. I am totally new to property investing, and trying to soak up as much information as possible.... There is a lot of good (and bad) information floating about on the internet at the moment, it can be hard for us newbies to filter out. As a totally newbie I am looking at investing in the south wales valley areas, my original aim was to start with small cheaper 1/2 bed units to focus on LHA tenants. Although now am leaning towards flipping more run down small houses, and refreshing them to a decent standard for 1st time buyers with aim to building deposits o
  16. Hi Everyone! I'm interested to learn which metrics you consider most important when assessing potential areas for BTS renovation projects? I'm especially intrigued to hear what resources or factors you measure, which go beyond the normal fundamentals! Cheers, Will
  17. OK so I know a perfect area will never exist but I’m interested to hear what factors people would consider when choosing an area to flip properties. My thoughts are: an area with the lowest amount of investors so there’s less competition for deals therefore a higher % owner occupiers to buy your property at the end enough of the usual fundamentals (jobs, transport etc) to make the area desirable and also to have the rent out back up option Reasonable turnover of houses and not too many new builds in the area Or is the area not actually that
  18. Good Morning All Property Investors, Up until now my strategy has been to buy properties to let, growing my portfolio organically by reinvesting any capital growth and excess rent. I started in property in 2015 and I now have 3 properties in Buckinghamshire, not an aggressive strategy but one that at this time works for me. With low interest, this going well and I would hope to add to my portfolio again this year. This is where my dilemma comes in – I am asking myself whether I should diversify my portfolio with a new strategy. I see the following
  19. Hi All, Just wanted to give something back to the propertyhub as I have been listening for the past 6 months and a lot of the back dated ones and has given me the confidence to go forward into property I am looking at buying my own house hopefully before Summer. I am then looking at going into property flipping to begin with, with a friend of mine (a disillusioned teacher). Then onto investment when the funds are there. Attached is a spreadsheet I have developed: - You are able to see what is viable instead of a finger in the air. Ie. Quit our job
  20. Hi, I am new to the property investment game. Looking to flip properties in the Leicestershire area, buying at 100 -125k and then potentially trying my hand at HMOs. Would like to build some contacts around this area as well as hopefully receiving some of your expert knowledge on flipping and HMOs in this price region. Thanks Graham
  21. 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
  22. Hi All, I'm seeking some advice on how I should propose splitting profits on a refurbishment project that is due to commence in the new year. Overview: My business partner is fronting the costs for the property purchase, refurbishment and associated legals/taxes etc. However, they are based 6 hours away from the property and will not be involved in any of the day to day activities during the project. He hasn't even seen the property as I sourced it myself, so effectively, he will taking a back seat for the duration of the project. I have sourced the property and dealt with the
  23. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone who regularly undertakes buy to sell property flips knows what insurances are required? If one was to hypothetically purchase a house through a limited company for the sole purpose of refurbishment and resale, is it necessary to take out specific site insurance? I gather basic home insurance isn't suitable and often cover is void during periods of refurbishment? I also understand that your contractors insurance wont cover you either? Any advise as to what cover is required and any recommended providers would be excellent! Many thank
  24. Hi Guys, New to this forum and property investing in general. My fiance and I are in the process of completing on a property (flipping project), however with high aspirations of a flipping portfolio and a buy-to-let portfolio, I really need some tax advice. My fiance and I are both higher rate tax payers and from reading up, I believe a Ltd Company formation would be the way forward for the buy to lets and even possibly if we flip more than one house a year. Any comments or suggestions are very much welcomed, however a property accountant in the Merseyside
  25. Hi all, Thought i would introduce myself! I am a newbie to the property game. I completed my first flip very recently and i was incredibly happy with the outcome. I am now in a new project and enjoying the journey so far. I work a 9-5 office job and carry out the majority off the work on the properties myself. So, yes, a lot of late nights and anti-social weekends but i really do enjoy it! I invest in 3 bed semi-detached properties on the Surrey/Hampshire border. My current project is in Yateley, Hampshire. Thanks for taking the time to read my
