  1. Hello everyone. I’m Monica and am looking to start my property journey which I’m really excited about. I’ve the funds to invest but need a power team around me to keep me honest and steer me on the right path. I’m based in Birmingham so would appreciate any recommendations for a property accountant, mortgage broker, solicitor and builder in the Midlands. I’ve tried looking around myself but I’d rather use people who are tried and tested. Thanks in anticipation of your help.
  2. Hi may name is Dal, I'm from Birmingham and am looking to begin my property investment/developer journey. I have no experience but have some skills in DIY. Im not sure which strategy to go with, interested in flips but also like the idea of buy renovate and hold. I guess I'm looking more to invest in my area, is that good or bad? In the next 5 years I'm going to have minimum 10 property portfolio but be financially free in the next 12 months. thanks for reading all. onwards and upwards Dal
  3. Hi all, I am contemplating my first buy-to-let investment and I am wondering if I should be targeting a city flat to or a bigger 3 to 4 bedroom family home with garden. I am thinking about investing in Birmingham or one of the other midlands or northern investment areas recommended by Property Hub. Which property type would you chose and why? Thank you. Barry.
  4. Hi all Planning to invest in a BTL in Birmingham soon. Please can you share your recommendation(s) for letting/property management agency(s) in Birmingham? Preferably a local business/boutique/family run agency, working with BTLs. If you recommend a chain, the name of a particular agent would be appreciated (if you would rather message privately, please let me know). Any recommendations on ones to avoid welcomed too. Thanks and good day Richard

  6. I read this article by Which the other day which confirms my feelings about the local property market over the past couple of years. https://www.which.co.uk/news/2020/02/how-have-house-prices-changed-in-your-area-since-the-brexit-referendum/ I've found the market really competitive and have been outbid on more deals than I care to remember. I usually invest in Sandwell, which has seen a 20% rise on it's average house price since the referendum. I feel the current level of both sale and rental prices are unsustainable in the local area, which would mean we are at a different point in
  7. Hello all, It has been a long time since I’ve posted on here but at last I am in a position to buy a rental property, Birmingham and surrounding areas being my location target as this fits a bit better with my budget of £25,000 as I live down in the southwest housing pricing being too high for me I think Birmingham is a good place to start my research as it has good transport links and plenty of university and hospitals I can look into. When it comes to research I generally want to know everything before I buying a certain product, in this case, a house, so I am hoping this will be

  9. Hi all. I've recently got into the Property Hub, having listened to around half of the podcast episodes over the past couple of weeks. I have lived overseas for several years (currently based in the US), and I am an 'accidental landlord', having let out and self-managed a property in Leeds that I used to live in since I left the UK. I grew up in Birmingham and am looking to acquire a buy-to-let there in the near future, with a view to exploring other regions / investments over the next 12-24 months. I visit the UK relatively frequently, so I am keen to hear of any Property Hub meet ups in the
  10. 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
  11. Hi Hubbers, im new to the PH but looking for a reliable Local Handyman/Painter/Decorator in the Birmingham area who would be available to view prospective properties and quote for works required if necessary. This is due to myself being an investor at a distance, currently based in Manchester, it is not always possible for me to get down and view in time, hence this advert. I am more than willing to meet up in person; with the idea of building a longer-term business relationship, and obviously any completed viewings will be paid for. Please contact me on h
  12. Hi I am looking to buy a property, need advice on which area of Birmingham i should consider and is there anyone who can help source a property. This would be my first foray in to this kind of venture. thanks Satnam
  13. Hello, I am planning to buy to let in Birmingham, hence I am looking for a good/trustworthy surveyor that will be able to (1) perform a solid structural survey, (2) give a fair valuation based also on local knowledge and (3) deliver the report in a timely fashion. A internet research returns only 2 potential candidates: - Marwood surveyors - Allcott Birmingham branch Has anyone had experience with any of them? Alternatively can you recommend a surveyor you were particularly happy with (here or private message) thanks in adv
  14. Hello all I hope you are all well. I have a dilemma and not a bad one I guess. I have a three bed flat in South London which I rent out. It makes a decent yield but not as good as my properties in Birmingham. My dilemma is, do I keep my south London flat and wait for the next boom or continue to rent out. Or sell now and buy two properties in Birmingham which will more than double my income compared to the south London one. The thing is, the London property will always rent well and have good captial growth but I feel Birimingham is a
  15. Good afternoon My limited company is in the process of investing in the Birmingham area.

  16. Hello,I've made an offer for a property selling through this local Birmingham agency (Loveyourpostcode). Have you had any experience as a buyer/seller with this company? I’ve heard good things about Bobby Singh and Love Your Postcode. He seems very sociable and has a lot of funny posts on LinkedIn.
  17. Hi fellow Hubbers My partner and I are looking at investing in Birmingham and surrounds and was wondering if anyone can help on the better areas to invest in? We have only thus far invested in Sheffield and do not know the Midlands very well. We are looking to do a flip potentially, minor works though as it would be our first, or just a simple buy to let if it presents itself. Probably in the £60K - £90K region cash wise. Also happy to invest in towns where the 'ripple effect' has not yet taken hold! I am open to areas in and around Birmingham up to 1 hour
  18. Hi All, I am looking to start investing in buy to let properties in either Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham. I will be looking for single lets, 2 bed/bath, city centre or close to and generating high rental yields. I have done some research into postcodes to target but wanted to get feedback from seasoned investors, professionals and locals. Few questions: 1. What is your view on my chosen cities and are there specific postcodes that stand out? 2. Could anyone recommend good estate agents that also manage the letting side as well as sales?
  19. Hi, I am coming close to completion on an 1 bed off plan property ive purchased in Birmingham City Center. I have a slight dilemma whereby the Property management/estate agent who also happened to be selling furniture packs for a lot of the units is advising i purchase the furniture pack. See below for Details: "City Pack" = £1,995 + VAT "Style Pack" = £2,150 + VAT "Urban Pack" = £2,250 +VAT He mentions that apartments in the city center usually go for 150-200gbp more per month after being furnished. This would essentially mean after 1 year it wo
  20. Does anyone have any recommendations for surveyors in Birmingham please?
  21. Hi all, Slightly different question to usual. I live and invest in Nottingham however I’ve recently changed jobs and looking to relocate into Birmingham. I’ll be moving by myself so looking to live within the city centre in a 1/2 bedroom flat. I have little knowledge of the area so any advice on good/bad areas would be much appreciated. I’ve been looking at places within the Jewellery Quarter as I understand it’s currently going through a lot of generation and has access to the Tram network. I’m also quite interested in the development aro

  25. Hello there I am thinking of purchasing my first BTL property in Birmingham and would appreciate some input. I wanted to buy in the city centre (B16) because I expect house prices to rise in the long term due to the various regeneration projects . My focus is on capital growth, although I know I should not count on it. At the same time I know I should not settle with an ROI that is too low as I need some margin to avoid a negative ROI. Having crunched the numbers on my chosen property, I realised to my surprise that the the ROI is very low - 3.81% if I b
