  1. Hi Property Hubbers, Before I begin, I would like to thank the Property Hub team for all the amazing content they produce. So a little about me.... I've worked in the telecom industry for over 9 years after starting out as an apprentice. I embarked on the pointless journey of working my way up through the ranks, and finished in a comfortable senior management role (Cyber Security) before cutting it short. A year and a half ago, I stumbled across the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. This book made me question alot with the current system and the beliefs that I also held in
  2. Hi all I have a question which has really been bugging me as everyone seem's to talk about investing in different areas of the country because (quite rightly) they are hotspots and suit peoples strategies a lot better than where they live. I have just completed my first refurb and refinance and I am keeping it to rent out as the capital appreciation potential is high and it gives me a nice amount of cashflow along with a healthy sum to pull out in the refinance. I am now looking at other areas around the country (mainly the hotspots around Manchester and Liverpool due to great
  3. Hello, I hope everyone is keeping safe and keeping themselves healthy over this period. I am looking to raise finance for a property investment that I have secured and I was just about to purchase. I had an angel investor ready to finance the property purchase with me for 8% return. However, the angel investor has decided that he would rather put his money into the stock market...Anyway, this means that I have a cracking property deal that needs financing and I am offering a 10% interest rate on your money. If this is something you would be interested in doing or would like som
  4. Hello Hub, I am currently in the process of finding investments in Germany. The goal is to invest in an apartment block or Mehrfamilienhäuser over in the region of Nordrhein-Westfalen. However the deals and performance of the properties which are on the usual websites are not stacking up. Is there anyone who knows a good property sourcing company or agent that could help me find some deals? Kind regards, Heinrich
  5. Hello, My name is Lee and I am looking to invest before the end of this year. I am interested in meeting like minding investors to perhaps take on a bigger property up north. I am based in Reading, so would anyone be happy to meet up and discuss? Please PM me or make a comment, I check on this weekly normally. This is my first investment, doing extensive research via this site and podcasts and from other sources. Thank you
  6. Hi there hubbers! I'm on the lookout for investors who are taking a proactive approach to reducing the environmental impact of their properties to feature in the next issue of Property Hub Magazine. You might be focused on improving the energy efficiency of your portfolio, or taking measures to protect wildlife, or have strong views on how landlords can help create a more sustainable environment. If this sounds like you I'd love to hear from you at chantelle@propertyhub.net.
  7. Hi Guys, Shutzy here, a guy just getting back into the property investment world again. Looking forward to the fun and the challenges and the motivation and support from all of those on this forum and finally the rewards of deciding if I want to work today or not. cheers Shutzy
  8. Hi all, My wife and I have been interested in the idea of property investment for a number of years, however have only really started to research it properly the last 12 months. Having attended seminars, read a lot of literature and researched online, we decided to go for it at the beginning of 2019! We had £20k in savings, so having consulted a mortgage broker decided to remortgage our house and release £30k, bringing the total to £50k. Mortgage repayments have gone up, however it’s more than affordable so we feel confident with our decision. We’ve then set up a ltd company whi
  9. Dear Hubbers, I thought I might solicit your views on what seems to be an increasing trend. Namely, someone (often from London or the South-East) invests in BTL property in the North, which then means that money is effectively being transferred from the North - where it is arguably needed more - to the South. Of course, any modernisation undertaken in tired housing stock in the North (or anywhere else) can't be a bad thing. But the rental income is likely to be spent 200+ miles away and is not therefore helping the local economy. According to a comment on this thread ther
  10. I have been thinking of investing my money in Manchester but don't fancy the travel. My question to you all would be would have you ever purchased a buy to let (or anything) without physically seeing it? if Yes what did it take to make you feel easy doing it? If No, Why? Thanks!
  11. 3 major Benefits of a diversified Investment Portfolio: Minimizing the risks: If one investment performs poorly over a certain period, other investments may perform better over that same period, reducing the potential losses of your investment portfolio from concentrating all your capital under one type of investment. Capital Preservation: Not all investors are in the accumulation phase of life: Some who are close to retirement have goals oriented towards the preservation of capital, and diversi
  12. Hi, my name is Stephen I'm 22 and live in the Midlands. I've recently (last month or so) have been looking into property investing. I have next to no experience or knowledge or Captial. so it's looking to be a good few years before I can do anything. in the time while I think of ways to make the Captial to start. that gives me lots of time to Learn as much as I can. this is what brings me here. been listening to the podcast and love it! (any help is greatly appreciated) I plan to be a good active member on here not that I can offer much I'll try my best!
  13. Hi guys ! As I've been slightly studying the property market, I'm trying to imagine what it's going to be like in London after 15 years or so? I can hardly imagine the average house prices doubling. As from the investors point of view, the demand will always be there in order for it to build passive income. However, I can't see houses which are currently worth £300,000 being worth £500,000 or more. So for instance the rent is £1,700 that means after 15 years the rent should rise to at least £2,500 or so right? But I don't see any regular family paying such kind of money for the house. Eithe

  17. Hello all, Brand new to the Property Hub Forum but have been eagerly working my way through the podcast back catalogue! I bought my first flat in Gateshead when I was 19 with a friend and set up a Ltd Company with him in June last year (for tax reasons!) Since then we've bought another flat in Gateshead and expect we'll buy our 3rd in a few months. We get just over an 8% yield but i'm very aware of the lack of capital growth in the North East of England, does anyone have any comments on the likelihood (or not) for there to be any movement in pro
  18. I turn 19 next week and I've always dreamed to see myself well established in the Real estate business since i was younger, I got myself into the construction trade to train as a carpenter to try and make my dream a closer reality working alongside the boss, i'm still currently training. I've read a lot about flipping single family homes as that's where i see myself getting started but i'm not sure where to get started on building the funds. I will have £2000 next week to invest in gaining the funds through mutual funds, stocks and Real Estate Funds to split my risk and gain knowledge of diffe

  20. Hello, I am interested in investing in someone who has a track record of flipping, I have around £30,000 to invest and would like to not just give the money but help out. My goal is to grow my investment over time while learning how to become a competent property flipper myself. The area I'd like to invest in would preferably be in the North but anywhere in the UK for the first 1 or 2 would be fine. How would you go about this? Are there any resources you can share? Thanks!
  21. Hi everyone, Myself and my cousin (both based in London/SE) are looking to take the plunge into property investment. We have managed to save up a modest £25k to purchase our first property and go from there. We want to use this first investment as a way to get ourselves up and running and to get used to how everything works. For tax reasons, we have set up a LTD company which we aim use in the future to pay ourselves a salary which will replace our future income (the dream!). My question to you all - can anyone give advice on the best area/type of propert
  22. Good Morning Everyone, Simon & Matilda here. We are a young couple living in SW London/Surrey and we are looking to make the jump into buy to let property investment. We are in a very fortunate situation where a fair sized family loan could potentially help us grow quite quickly, assuming we do things properly. We have little or no experience in property although I (Simon) works as a construction surveyor so I have a good building knowledge. We are looking for any advice from people who have made success from a similar situation. What to d
  23. Hello Everyone my name is Jordan, currently living in manchester., new to the forum and looking to learn. My question - simply, is... Should I buy my own home before I start buy to let? If so what to look for? Current needs or as a long term investment? I know mortgages on buy to lets usually requires you to own your own home, as security. Which I don't Have and Don't know anyone who could or even would be a guarantor, so thats out of the question. I think I will manage to earn around £18k or less a year before tax when I find work Again (Currently quit my j
  24. Hi, I wanted to see if there was anyone on here there involved in developing in the North East. I am about to relocate from London to North Yorkshire and I'm looking to meet developers/property sourcers/JV Partners. The patch I'll be operating is between Newcastle & Leeds. I am planning to attend PIN and HUB Meetups to network. Is there any other networking groups or mentors based in the North East anyone can recommend? Thanks everyone, look forward to hearing from you.
