  1. 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 similar story who with I can chat with and network. I'm also a massive property geek so if anybody wants to talk about anything even remotely related to property and wants an outside opinion or just a like minded person to talk topics through please reach out!
  2. Hi, my name is Dan, and I am a new follower of PropertyHub (2-3 months actively listening to the podcast and also have read the Property Investment book by Rob D before discovering the PH). I do not have any property experience, but I am highly motivated and passionate to begin my journey soon. I am 24 years old originally from Eastern-Europe based in London and recently got an average-paid job from which I started saving a bit of money and began looking into options for investing and building wealth. I want to share my view in this intro, hoping I can get advice or opinion if I am thinking straight for my investment—plan on getting a 2bed apartment in a major city on the coast of Eastern-European country. The town has a high growth rate, and tourism is continuously improving especially during the summer. After a lot of calculations from my side and negotiations, I believe I can get around 4.4% ROI on the property. The reason for my intention of investing abroad (remote) is also part of security as I do not have anything on my name and in case of bad times, I can have a roof over my head. The risk might be slightly higher as I will need to manage/outsource everything but once done - should be straight passive income. The average upfront amount for such an investment would be around 35K, which is still a few years savings for me. Another question or thoughts I've been having is to quit my engineering job(average paid) and try to enter the real estate industry as an agent. I believe that it will struggle in the beginning, but in the long-term, I can build a network and knowledge that can help me as a property investor. (still a bit of fear as a non-native speaker). Apologize for the long post, hope I haven't annoyed anyone. Big thanks for the free information and courses on your platform. Also thank you for letting me share my story. I would love to attend any events you organize and to meet you all. Stay safe during those uncertain times. Dan
  3. Hi all! Hope you're well. Been following the PH podcasts for a while, and recently found the forum very helpful so now I'm here. I'm a newbie property investor - looking to create steady cash flow. Priority is London, but an open to other cities. Thanks
  4. Greetings PropertyHubbers! I'm Diana, based in SE London, and have been brought to the forum by Rob D's inspiring books in property investment (thanks Rob D, I've turned into a fan!). I have a very mixed professional background, having worked in private, charity, academic and public sectors - and that's because I'm essentially a big fan of learning and of trying new things. At heart, I'm very entrepreneurial, and I've never been a fan of full-time work, so I'm dreaming of the day I will become financially independent. My dad has always inspired me with his entrepreneurial and property investor mindset (although I'm not sure if he's a rich or a poor dad!), but the seeds are only now starting to blossom in my mind. I'm ready to start as an investor, and very much interested in property investing, especially in the BTL sector, but I'm only now starting to save for my first property, so I'm still at least a year or two away. Using this time to learn and get my feet wet. I'm very nerdy, I devour books but also love spending time buried in spreadsheets and numbers. I'm keen to learn and driven to action, but I don't have any social networks in the property investment space. None of my friends know about or are interested in property investment. So I would be really keen to hear from fellow experienced investors, to discover inspiring mentors, and to exchange impressions. I already have a few ideas on my first few potential investments, but I have no one to bounce them off! Really happy to be part of this community, and keen to learn from you all! Diana
  5. Hi Hubbers, I'm Matt and taking first proper steps on the property 'journey'. I wanted to make a move back in 2013 but learning from the Rob's and Pete Matthew, I took a step back to build my finances and a safe base. That's now done and realigning my efforts. Based in Stourbridge West Midlands, I'm planning to create a BTL company, forcing appreciation through refurbs then refinancing. The goal is to create enough passive income to quit my job. Stretch target is 45, but at least by 50. I'm a professionally qualified Civil Engineer with construction, site management and design experience. I've recently joined a large private developer in the regional technical department to build my own knowledge and to transfer my existing skills into this sector. Looking forward to being involved.
  6. Hi My name is Herman and my main goal right now is to crawl out of the rat race by building my own property portfolio though mostly BTL. I found this site through Rob’s property geek podcast, very amazing stuff, already purchased one of the books too, just to get a more feel of the routines, success stories and basically how to go about everything such that I can avoid some of the expensive rookie mistakes. I would like to start off through a limited company in the UK. I am very open and thankful for any tips or information mostly everything concerning international landlords with limited companies, from financing to finding local sourcing establishments, hot areas etc I have not yet picked a specific area yet, however, just looking for where there is a demand and prices are not so exaggerated. Hopefully I have come to the right place to widen my knowledge and give back however I can through my experiences J
  7. Hi all - we're starting our property investment journey very soon. To begin with we're selling our 3-bed terrace house in Streatham, South London. It's currently listed for £545k but a nearby home which was in a really terrible state recently sold for £530k. By contrast, ours has had a new kitchen, two new bathrooms and extensive remodelling so we're hoping that a lower than market price will encourage a quick sale. If you're interested, you can check it out here; www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-63471848.html Our plan is to then buy a house a little further out of town that we've found which has an annex out the back we are hoping to rent out. With the sale and purchase, we should then have a deposit for a flat of our own which we then hope to rent out. We're looking at somewhere with 2 bedrooms in an attractive location outside of London for roughly £100k - suggestions of good locations where the rents are around £600+ would be welcome! Best of luck everyone, Joyce & Mark
  8. Hi All, I found Rob and Rob's podcast about a week ago and have listened to nearly 30 episodes already, can't get enough of it (thanks guys). Thought I'd introduce myself and show how green I am in this world. Hopefully one day I'll be able to help somebody else out, but at the minute it will probably be me just asking stupid questions. Anyway, here it goes: What you've done in property so far: Nothing other than develop a few goals for the long and short term (although I do own my own home). What areas you invest in (or want to invest in): The north west (Wigan, Liverpool, Manchester) and possibly the midlands (Coventry, Hinckley, Leicester). What your plans are for the future: Same as everybody else really, run my own company and one day own a yacht (everybody wants that, right?) Any skills or knowledge you've got that other members might benefit from: I'm a security systems engineer (CCTV, Access Control and alarms), so if anybody needs help either designing or installing a system, I can help out. Looking forward to getting involved in some of the topics on here. Simon.
  9. HI everyone, short intro so I'm Kyle from Liverpool. I'm a HMO landlord since 2003 and run a hostel. I've slowed since 2008 and just starting HMO investing again. My assets are a mix of students professionals and few benefits in 2up 2 downs houses and flats. I hope to connect with fellow investors on here and share any knowledge I can.
  10. Hi I am Peter, Looking for advice and willing to help in any way I can. Looking forward to learning lots. Thanks for the resources and site, it is nice to know there are like minded people out there Regards Peter
  11. Hi Everybody I am Paul Mortimer newly retired and looking to invest in property as at 55 I am going to have to wait a while before a pension. I spent 35 years trading in the City so I am have a good knowledge of investments and returns. Currently I am in Ireland but looking to return to England next year. I have run one building project (our extensions) so I have gained a little experience there and just finished reading Rob's latest book which confirmed a lot of what I was thinking plus some. I think I would describe myself in the analysis paralysis point although I know what return I am looking to achieve. Looking forward to building a long term income.
  12. Hello all, My wife and I are new to property investing. Having done some research and talked it over we think it is the right way for us to achieve our financial and lifestyle goals and we are keen to get started. She's a clinical psychologist. I'm a software engineer. In the past, I have invested long in US stocks and traded US options with middling success. Our liquid savings are currently held in ISA index funds, non-equity funds and cash savings accounts and the bank owns the majority of our home. We do not have any investment property yet but are looking to buy 1 or 2 over the next 6-12 months. Although we haven't settled on a strategy yet, we are probably going to be look for sustainable, high yield properties (vs capital growth) and are especially interested in buying BMV because of the downside protection and improved yield it offers. Our time frame is buy and hold / long-term. We are looking forward to learning from all of the people in this forum - it has come highly recommended to us Christo
  13. Good afternoon Hubbers, My name is Josh, a 30 something newbie property investor from Bolton, who has been listening to the property hub podcasts now for about 2 months. I am really enjoying & getting what Rob & Rob are doing and I've read a few of their recommended books (Rich Dad Poor Dad, How to win friends..., Think rich grow rich). The content and knowledge that they are sharing is great, and I've now took the plunge to join the property forum (...after 60 days of the 2Rob's subliminal messages!). For a bit of background, I am currently a landlord (not an investor!) for my own first house, that I managed to keep hold of and now let out. I have muddled my way through it, losing money for the 1st few years, various repairs, call outs, negative equity and the odd accidental bookkeeping blunder (sorted now for any accountants out there!). I am now in the process of building up my capital to invest in my next property. There are a few questions on my mind regarding property investment that are holding me back a little, but hopefully I will soon find some answers here on forum. I also now need to take the step to go some local meet ups... and stop watching Netflix every night! Cheers
  14. Hi all, I've been interested in property investing for 20 or so years. I have no investments at present but did own 7 BTL properties in the late 1990's. All was going very well and then I made a big mistake buying 2 luxury flats in Cardiff off-plan which lost me around £200k so I sold my other flats to clear the debt in 2005. I'm keen to get involved again now though and not repeat past mistakes. I'm tending to favour flipping as my strategy as I like the idea of no ongoing management issues and profits being taxed as capital gains rather than income. I'm a Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Wealth Manager for my day job and also the author of a book on financial planning titled "One Day is Now'. Looking forward to engaging with you all. Best wishes Martin
  15. Hi all just wanted to introduce myself and get to know others. By the way, thank you Rob &Rob for creating this forum

I'm keen get back into property investing, albeit with a better a better understanding. Which is one of the reasons for joining The Property Hub.
