  1. Hi All, I'm using ROI, amongst other metrics, to determine if it's worth investing in a given buy-to-let property or not. However, I'm struggling with a couple of things, which are related, and as a newbie, I'd love your input on them. I see most of the people using ROI, and even many calculators online or spreadsheet, don't include capital growth in their ROI calculations. I'm not sure I understand why they wouldn't include capital growth in their calculations. Yes, it's impossible to predict, but on average it's fair to say you could use a 3.5% capital growth in your calculation.
  2. 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
  3. Hi Everyone, I went to Liverpool last week, came back on the 6th July 2017. I spent 4 days researching the area, I love the city, It has such a unique vibe to it. I spoke to almost all the agents in the City, most gave great advice and had properties with great yields. I came back excited to invest. At a networking meeting on the day I got back I got talking to a guy that invests in Liverpool. With all my new found enthusiasm for the City, I told the guy that I wanted to Invest and wanted to just get any advice he had about the place. Like a wet blanket over my burning
  4. Should I sell this property? One of my properties is a 2-bed terrace in Bristol. It's my former home which I converted to a buy to let a couple of years ago. It has had good capital growth and is now valued at around £320k. The rent is £1,100 per month. The capital growth means there is a good amount of equity in the property (£160k). As my property investment knowledge has grown over the last couple of years, I have been considering whether this money would be put to better use elsewhere. I have tried to pull money out by remortgaging to invest further in other locations. However,
  5. Hey everyone! Becoming increasingly keen on an investment property in Leeds. We want to go for capital growth rather than a good yield and looking for advice on main areas of Leeds to focus on - whether that be new builds or we do have the resource for refurb projects if it will actually add value in areas that are likely to grow. We can't decide whether to go for city centre flats geared for professionals, or a larger property potentially for student accommodation. Have seen lots of lovely new build flats in the centre, but they seem expensive compared the rest of
  6. Hi everyone, My name is Alistair and I live in Dorset. I am finally in a position to start my investment journey. My focus is on Capitol growth. I would like to invest in single lets, preferably in or close to a major City (Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham or Leeds). My available funds would be enough to buy a 1 bed appartment in a prime location or a 2 bed slightly outside the city centre. I would like to ask advice on whether a 1 bed appartment is a smart investment choice for reasons such as Capital growth potential, ease of finding tenants, potential
  7. Hi everyone, my name is Xuan and I am new to HMOs. I am interested in investing in the Croydon area and have done some research, but would really appreciate your opinion. I have selected Croydon because: 1. The property price is still quite affordable using London standard 2. There is potential capital growth 3. It is about 30 mins drive away from my house. This is quite important for me as I have a young family to look after. 4. I am only interested in professional HMO tenants and I think Croydon should have quite a lot of them (especially given the Westfield shoppi
  8. Hi all, Looking for a range of opinions on my current dilemma. I have 2 x BTL properties. Property 1 - 2 bed mid terraced modern house in Devon, Rents for £675, Value £175k, ROI of just over 5% once all costs are taken into account including things like building a fund for replacement boiler etc. It's bringing in around £2k per year gross profit before tax. Property 2 - 2 bed flat in Stevenage, Value £210-230k ish, rents for £800, Just bought this after a horribly delayed purchase process. Washing its face but not stellar, hoping rents rise a little
  9. Hi, I have been recently exposed to a lot of literature (advertising?) on investment value of The Northern Powerhouse and similarly on the investment value of London commuters towns; and so I have been thinking - if I had to choose..... So back to basic and judging against the 2 main criteria of capital growth and yield, it appears (in the literature anyway), that the London commuting towns (within the M25) are benefiting from larger capital growth (or have been over the past 2 years) than the majority of the Northern Powerhouse city centers (except Manchester maybe).
  10. Hello PropertyHubers! My name is Paul, I've been procrastinating in property for 10 years id say, and suddenly find myself at 53....a veritable cobweb-covered old timer.... Fortunately wifey and I have a mortgage free farmstead in Devon and a Slough end of terrace crash pad ....through no real strategy. I'm determined now to take action and join you successful property folk I admire so much, and build a portfolio, and have been on numerous courses....and one more to go from Mr G. Armstrong next month. Rob D's fab 'running the numbers' spreadsheet is sooo much better than most courses an
