ben_g posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHello all! Firstly I just wanted to introduce myself to the community, I'm Ben aged 24 and I'm currently based in Bristol working as a Graduate Manufacturing Engineer. Throughout my life I have had an interest in property and used to love to watch programs such as Grand Designs and Homes Under the Hammer when I was younger. After I Graduated from University in 2019 I had very little knowledge about how to get into property but I knew it was something I wanted to get into! So at the start of my research I stumbled across this podcast called "The Property Podcast" after I bought 1 of Robs books - The Complete Guide to Property Investment. I started listening to the podcast from episode 1 while travelling to and from work. The Robs joke about the quality of those first few episodes on the podcast today but I found that these first few episodes helped me to relate to them and going on their journey with them has opened my eye to the fact that all successful ventures start from small foundations. This has motivated me to think bigger about where I could end up in the future if I put the work in, not just in property. So over the past 2 years I have been saving HARD to get to a position where I can pursue my first property investment and this week I have successfully had an offer accepted on a 2 bed maisonette in the West Midlands, in the area where I grew up! (Bristol is just way to expensive for me! And investing in my hometown I can benefit from my vast knowledge of the area). With many developments to public transport in this area and with the upcoming 5-7years of property growth (18 year cycle), I plan to not only get a return from rental income but also the potential for capital growth. I now have a long journey ahead of me that I am very much looking forward to - Learning about the buying process, learning how to work with solicitors effectively, setting up a mortgage correctly, get the property ready to rent and finding a tenant that I can provide an excellent service for. I can finally learn from taking action and move away from that pesky analysis paralysis! Thank you for reading! Ben.
Its time to take action - Investor Liverpool
Chris Enwright posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHi, I'm a mechanical engineer from Liverpool seeking to invest in property. Initially to cover mine and my partners retirement and hopefully to become financially independent with a passive income. I've previously refurbished my own house (Total gut and refurb), build a two storey extension on a friends house and recovered a repossession house with my brother. My initial strategy is to purchase BMV, refurb, cash out and Let (Cash in and Cash out). Any leads in the Liverpool area would be much appreciated. Chris E
