  1. 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
  2. Hi all, Firstly my apologies for not posting anywhere near as much as I should! It is renewal time for my BTL, and I am torn between fixing in between 2 and 5 years. The two options provided by my mortgage broker makes the 2 year (2.19%) cheaper by £376 over the first 2 years, however I am swinging toward the 5 year (2.44%) for the peace of mind over the next 5 years whilst we deal with an potential fall or from the B word, whatever that may be... Appreciate everyone’s circumstances are different, but would love to hear what sort of length terms people have been, are, and are pl
  3. Having dipped my toe into the BTL market for the first time last year, I’ve recently decided to attempt my first flip. Me and my business partner are planning to pool some money together and buy somewhere, renovate, and hopefully sell for a profit. If it goes well we’ll go again, if the gains are modest it may just go towards another BTL... My question (or questions) are - Which renovations will add the most value? And perhaps more importantly - are we crazy for attempting this as when all is said and done it may line up with us looking to sell the property towards the end of the year when we
  4. Hi hubbers! Hoping that some of you may be able to give me some advice ideas about my next steps and strategy given my newbie status and the current lead up to Brexit. Current status Own house Full-time employment No debts - other than mortgage on house 100K cash in savings and cash input from parents on a pay back scheme to be decided.... Ultimate goals Within 5 years have a passive income of £1.5K while working full-time Within 10 years have a passive income of £3K leading to full-time property developing career C
  5. Before I get too deep in, this isn’t a post about politics, sides of the fence, rights, wrongs or any of that. From a pure investment perspective, how is Brexit affecting people’s thinking or strategy regarding property? Are people holding off buying until after March 29th? Are you confident that the UK is an island with a finite amount of space so property will forever be a good investment regardless of, say, potentially reduced EU immigration? Are you forsaking rental yield in the search of long-term growth? Or is it a distraction having no impact on your future plans?
  6. Hi All Can anyone shed any light on how they think Brexit is going to affect the market over the next 6 months to a year? (and beyond?!). I'm looking to buy an apartment on the seafront in Kemp Town, Brighton, East Sussex with my other half and I'm conscientious of the seemingly flat market conditions and nervous of a drop in property prices because our strategy is FTB BTS. Kemp Town itself seems to be in a micro-market of its own! There's no reason or rhyme to the pricing or any logical sold house price data; it appears vendors are inflating their prices for London buy
  7. Hi Hubsters, Recently stumbled upon Rob & Robs pod cast as I am keen to make my way in the world of property investment. I don't think I have an issue financing the odd buy to let or flip project but I am in need of sound, genuine advice as to where to start and what my first moves should be. Lets say, I have the funds in place to buy at my disposal... I want to find a property 20-30% under market value, so I look at auction sites /repossessions etc... what happens next? I see one in an area with all the right fundamentals. Do I pay for the property to be surveyed?
  8. Hi there! I'm seeking some advice from forum readers, hope someone will be able to help. I am getting close to exchange for a flat I'm buying in London SE8 and doubts are starting to to assail me, after reading doom & gloom stories about the UK property market (and especially London) flatlining and potentially gearing towards a massive decline. I fear that I'm about to buy at the peak of a property bubble, which may soon burst, leaving me in negative equity with an overpriced studio flat in my hands that is worth much less what i paid for.
  9. HI All, Really going through a dilemma now, so would appreciate any advice. I've heard good things about this forum from friends, so decided to give this a go. We're currently in the process of buying a house in Maidenhead. To give some context first, the house is in a great location (close to centre, outstanding catchment etc.) and M'head is on the crossrail route with a town centre regeneration due in the next 3 years or so. So all in all, sounds good you'd think! However, Crossrail appreciation has already been baked into prices across the town so prices are quite st
  10. Hi Guys, Wanted to get your thoughts about BRR strategy to get majority of money out with Article 50 looming. Doing a full refurb to force appreciation and then seeing prices drop due to Article 50 would be devastating.....do we think this is likely?
  11. I am a first time buyer - and have my deposit and everything set up to purchase my first home - however I am concerned there will be a potential crash/drop in property value as article 50 (brexit) is due to be signed this spring. Should I hold fire and wait to see what will happen to prices and not rush to buy now? Personally it is a good time for me to buy now but I dont want to make a massive mistake as it has taken me a lifetime to earn my first deposit. Thanks all
  12. Since June talk in the property sector has been heavily focused around the Brexit, falling Pound to Euro rates and an uncertain future; largely because of media scaremongering and the majority of people not actually knowing what the future will hold. UK buyers have become increasingly worried about investing their money into Spanish property or have reduced the amount they are willing to spend based upon the exchange rate being at a much lower rate than this time 12 months ago. Instead of negativity and always looking for why not to invest, why not look at some very interesting and valid rea
  13. So, in the wake of the referendum decision, a lot has already been said about how this will change the London property market (see more here). But how do you envisage this will impact YOUR short and longterm plans? The nation is still reeling from the result, but what does this mean for UK investors? Get your Brexit thoughts off your chest here.
