  1. Hello fellow investors, I am new to BTL (but have done 6 months of very solid research and am ready to invest!). I am interested mainly in Capital Growth (with positive cashflow of course...). Interested in simple BTL as I do not have time for HMO or short lets. I am planning on investing (via Ltd) in Sheffield and/or Leeds area but am based in London. I am also personally buying property in Poland (for yield and also for tax reasons) Currently I work in London and my work brings me to Sheffield quite often and I know that city. In the future I want to build Capital Growth
  2. Hi everyone! My name's Patrick, I'm a 23 year old engineering graduate who's been interested in property since I was a teenager. I have had a bold goal since a young age to build up a property portfolio to give me financial freedom, allowing me to quit my job and provide for my amazing partner and future family. I have been a listener to the property podcast for many years, aswell as reading and researching anything economics or property for the last few years, and now that I have a nice saving pot, I am about to invest in HMOs in the sheffield area. I would love to meet people with a sim
  3. Hello, I'm Richard and new to this! For the past 5 years I've been living in South Korea. My family and I have relocated to Sheffield (for my wife's work) and we've just bout a family home! I was hoping for some advice, as I steam through previous podcast episodes, read the backdated magazines I've subscribed to and educate myself, I thought I may as well go the whole hog and post on a forum! I'm please to say, I'm now in a pace where I have crystallised my goal and strategy. It is long term, secure my future, hopefully enjoy a bit of extra cash in my pocket each month along the wa
  4. Hi, just joined the forum! Been listening to the podcast for a year or so! Accidental landlord of one flat In Essex. Just got £30k of cash out of the existing property and considering low maintenance flat in Liverpool (or Sheffield or Leeds). Heading up north later this week to have first look at areas in city centre armed with Rightmove and Zoopla. Would be good to chat to some agents I guess but I am on step 1 of this so nowhere near ready to commit. Obvs loads of agents in liverpool, haven’t a clue if they are good bad or indifferent. Any advice/ recommendations welcome... looking at circa
  5. Hi Property Hub members Having recently joined Property Hub I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I live and work in London and have had a keen interest in property and property investments for several years now. So far much of my attention was on purchasing and refurbishing my own home in London. Now that this is done, I would like to take the next step and invest some of my savings and recurring job income into BTL property. In terms of strategy, I am looking for BTL investments with a yield above 5%. That rules out most of Southern England. So I am planning to inv
  6. Hello All, I am currently purchasing my first BTL so whilst this process is going on I thought I would look in other areas of the country to invest in. I was wondering if anyone on here has had any experience in purchasing a BTL in Sheffield. I have done a little bit of research myself and possibly the post code S2 fits my criteria. If anyone could give me more info on this area or Sheffield in general it would be much appreciated. I am looking for a 2-3 bed house for about 100-110k. Kind regards, Jay
  7. Hi there! I currently live in the south of UK but recently I've got a attractive job offer between Sheffield/Doncaster area. I would like to ask you about the areas to avoid and areas to look for when it comes to my own accommodation. Yes, my own, not BTL areas. So could you please give me an advice on: The safest, most convenient, 'good neighborhood' areas/zones to live in Sheffield/Doncaster. The worst, the ugliest, dodgy places to avoid in both of these cities. Where the local authority estate is located and where the 'upper class' reside? Again I mean the place f
  8. Hi, As the title suggests, I am completely new to the property world. However, I recently inherited some money and am considering investing some of it in to property. An initial idea has been to purchase a student house using a buy-to-let mortgage. My short term goal is to gather as much advice and knowledge from you guys on this forum on all things property investment, particularly student buy to lets, and how to get things started. I have been looking into student buy to lets in Sheffield - 4 beds around £250,000. I appreciate that property can be a complicated and challengin
  9. Hi, I'm 27 and have just given up a career in physiotherapy. In a couple of weeks I will be going back to university to study a Masters in Real Estate. This is a one year course, then after 2 years of working I can sit an exam which if I pass become a chartered surveyor. I realise this drastic change isn't essential but I couldn't face the thought of working as a physio with limited available progression in the long-term. I thought for a little sacrifice (a years hard work and no pay) it will be worth it in the end! I'm hopeful that working around property on a daily basis will not
  10. Hey, fellow Hubbers! Looking at some property in Sheffield and came across a development called The Fitzgerald by developers called Romiga East Ltd. The numbers seem to stack up really well and as this is phase 2 of the apartments, I have direct comparables for both rent and purchase prices which is great. It would be off plan with completion around October 2019. The only question I have really is about the developers, I have not heard of them, I have of course done all the normal googling and cannot find anything bad about them. Just wondering if anyone has worked with them or purchased

  12. Hi All, I am looking to purchase a 4 bed HMO / Student Property in Sheffield or Leeds. I would like to purchase within the next two months, however I am worried that the 2nd – 4th year students would have already found their property for the academic year. Would you suggest purchasing and then renting out to young professionals (sourcing on spareroom etc.) on a short term let basis until June / July 2020 and then move the students in. Thanks,
  13. Hi All, I am currently exploring Sheffield as one of the cities to invest in this year. I would be very much appreciate some guidance on which areas to focus and avoid with any supporting rationale. My strategy is yield (short term) and appreciation (long term). Tenancy - ideally professionals I look forward to your thoughts. Thanks!
  14. Hi All, Sorry for the long post. I'm totally new to this and was hoping to gain advice from you all, so any wisdom imparted would be sincerely appreciated. I'm interested in beginning my property investment journey after gaining much confidence from the contents on this wonderful site. I'm from Birmingham but live and work in London. Initially, I was looking for a high yielding B2L property in somewhere like Sheffield or Nottingham, to potentially net between £500 - £1,000 per month cashflow to generate some passive income. As a newbie, I want a hands off approach, interested in mode
  15. Hi, I'm starting to look at a number of different cities to build my property portfolio this year. I've got one in the pipeline in Liverpool and starting to research where next. I like the look of Sheffield and planning a trip up in the spring to have a look round. I live in London and I would love someone who has a bit of local knowledge to provide me with a bit of advise on particular areas to look. I'm concentrating in the city centre and have a budget of £100k. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! Laurie
  16. Hi everybody, I thought I’d write this to introduce myself and also to provide me with a little bit of motivation, as I expect this community will be great at holding me accountable for my goals. I’m currently in the middle of a live-in refurbishment with my wife and 2yo daughter. We’ve been hit by some tough times over the past three years since we moved in, so nothing has really gone to plan. I’ve been doing most of the work myself-I’m a civil engineering project manager by day and a DIY dad by day-off/evening/occasional weekend. It’s been hard balancing work, dadding, husbanding a
  17. Hi, I've been a lurker here for a little while - responded to a handful of posts but thought it was time to introduce myself. I bought my first property in the south-east back in 2007 for £150,500 - though I was working in finance (and still do!) I had no interest or real idea about property at the time though I did have a little cash and so wanted my own place. Obviously it was not the best time to buy but I had no idea about the market cycles or anything. However it's not been a bad purchase overall - more on that later. I lived there for 5 years, had a re
  18. Hi. I'm a Brit based overseas looking to start my property investment portfolio in Sheffield. (My retirement rescue plan - I'm also enjoying the research process). I'm looking to buy flats or terraced houses at between £135 to £150K to let out to young professionals or possibly students. I should be in a position to purchase 2 or 3 of these in the next 12 months. The investments will need to be hands off as I'm based overseas for the next 3-5 years. I've found Rob Dix's excel spreadsheet very useful - Thanks Rob. My current stumbling block is the viewings. I can't physically vi
  19. Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy my first BTL investment property over the next six months - ideally a one/two bedroom apartment, and I've been looking into purchasing in Liverpool or Sheffield to maximise the potential for capital growth over the next five years. The budget is around £130,000. Yields are important to me but more important is capital growth to allow me to grow my portfolio. Can anyone recommend specific areas within Liverpool and/or Sheffield that are particularly desirable and have a high demand for rentals? Any advice is greatly appreciated
  20. Hi, I was wondering if there was anyone who has invested in the South Yorkshire region who has a good idea of where to invest in properties that are fairly cheap and therefore have a fairly high rental return? I live in Sheffield and just bought my first buy to let in Rotherham without really knowing too much of the areas. I am looking to buy one more property before I move away to Australia in about 5 months time which leads me on to my next question... has anyone got experience of buying properties in England whilst living and working abroad? Could this affect my abi
  21. Hello all Can anyone recommend a surveyor/valuer in Sheffield, please? It's for a valuation for a remortgage. I was referred to Connells but apparently they don't cover Sheffield! And I'm looking for something a bit more authoritative than Zoopla... Many thanks
  22. Hello lovely people! This forum has been such a useful find! I've learnt so much scouring through all the posts and I'm so glad to have found the podcast! My partner and I are intending to visit the North and hope that you guys can recommend any sourcing agents/estate agents in the Northern areas such as Glasgow, Hull, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham & Crewe as we will be investing remotely. Please feel free to comment or email me at sh.propportunity@gmail.com for a chat! Thank you so much! Cheers SH
  23. Hey All, I am just about to begin investing in my own property portfolio. I have now saved enough for a deposit on my initial buy-to-let property (at last). I work for a property developer specialising in student accommodation on a national level. I am a chartered project management surveyor with the RICS. So, I have plenty of relevant experience in developments with GDV's ranging from £1m up to over £100m. Currently, I am managing two projects in Sheffield due to complete in September 2017. One a 63 bed studio apartment development, and the other 130 bed development of

  25. Hello, I’m 22 years old from Sheffield and currently working as an architectural assistant before beginning my master’s degree in September, with the intention of becoming an architect in the future. Having read rich dad poor dad and richest man in Babylon when I was around 18 my mindset towards money was altered early, but I stupidly failed to implement any of the principles whilst I was at university. I unsurprisingly have an interested in buildings/construction in general but from an early age it was programs on TV that sparked an interest in properties specifically.
