  1. Looking for any advice/opinions about investing in Great Yarmouth and the coastal areas around it such as Gorleston- has anyone done this, and if so, what areas would you recommend, and how are you finding the rental market atm? This will be my 2nd BTL, my first is a one bed flat in Liverpool purchased through Property Hub. I'm a Norwich based investor, have looked into purchasing a BTL in Norwich and the returns just aren't as good as some coastal areas such as Yarmouth. As GY is known as a deprived area, I am of course concerned about the capital growth there, but there seems to be a lo
  2. Hi everyone, hope you're all well. Seeing as though the lockdown has started to ease and more viewings, surveys are starting to pick up pace I thought I'd post a few links to the former mill conversion properties that will be coming onto the market over the coming years. These apartments will help change the face of Stockport as a place to live and work, there has already been massive investment in the last couple of years with new infrastructure, leisure and living space and with lots more planned this is great place to look at for your long term investment plans https://www
  3. Hi - I'm a researcher and we're looking into challenges that arise when multiple people invest in a property, and the potential for a tool that tracks their financial contributions.Our survey only takes a few minutes to complete, and you can be entered into a draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher. This is part of a project supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.https://maryrhome.typeform.com/to/QxvdnbMZ
  4. Hi, I'm writing to enquire about any property finders on property hub that operate in the Midlands and North of England. We're looking for small apartment blocks close to local amenities and public transport in residential areas. Please get in touch to discuss our criteria. Kind regards, Jon
  5. Hi Everyone! I've been following Rob & Rob's podcast for a while now, and thought I would take their advice and ask for some help through the forum! My partner and I currently own a 3 bed flat in Kenilworth, which we purchased for £210k in 2017. We currently have it on the market for £250k, but have not had any offers past £230k in 6 weeks... but are now wondering whether keeping the flat and purchasing another smaller property would be the smartest move. We have £60k in cash, so could afford to buy a small house in Warwickshire for £250k (max) and rent out the flat as a bu
  6. I will be moving to Wales in next 6 months. My plan is to stay for 4 to 5 years in Cardiff and then after that i will be moving out of UK. I am wondering if getting a mortgage in Wales would be a good idea and then letting it after 4 or 5 years? I am a first time buyer and need your kind advice as to whether issues of 1) Coverting to buy2let later would be economically feasible? 2) Would the benefits be worth the hassle of managing tenents, considering i wouldn't be in UK myself? 3) What would be more reasonable in this situation a flat or house? I know its a lot of questio
  7. Hi all, This is my first post on here so please bear with me. I would consider myself a newbie in property investment but have been listening to the podcast for the past 6months or so and now I finally want to take action to invest in property but I just feel lost with the vast amount of information available. My situation is that I am 24ys old, I work in London and live with my parent with about £45k saved up. I am lucky in the sense that I can save large sum of my monthly income towards investment. My question is, what strategy would you follow if you were in my situation?
  8. Hi all, My stepbrother and I currently jointly own one buy to let property which is slowly (!) building up funds for the next deposit. We are looking at finance for our next property and there's a possibility of an investment from a family member. (They would get a percentage back on their investment each year and at the end of the 5 year fix we would buy them out, returning their original investment). We have looked at setting up the investment as a charge on the property so as to protect the investors money but lenders aren't prepared to lend on this basis. The alternative i
  9. Hi fellow hubbers! I've been skirting around actually coming to introduce myself for a while, but am now taking the plunge. Probably like many others, I've been listening to the podcast for quite a while, and have read most of Rob D's books too. I'm currently very seriously thinking about beginning investing in property but, as of yet, haven't taken the plunge! One thing that I wanted to see if any other forum members had any experience/guidance in is passing money from an active Ltd company to another to begin funding my property investments. I 100% own a company that has a fairly
  10. Dear all I'm new on this so I will try to explain my query as clear as possible. I would like to buy and renovate properties, maybe starting with small spaces as a studio or similar, and then to sell them again for profits. I'm thinking to do it trough my Ltd so I can invest the money directly from my ltd account (I'm the director - no employees) I got some basics questions on the above.: A- is to buy and sell properties trough my ltd legal? Even if my ltd has been settled as a consultants company. I'm a project manager working on constructions B- are the money used to
  11. Hello All, I am looking for a mentor to help guide me as i build my property portfolio. I am looking for someone who has a substantial portfolio or who has a lot of experience in the field. At this moment in time i am going to purchase my first property investment. I would like someone who can give me advice on how to expand my portfolio and share all their knowledge with me. So i can build a good structured portfolio. If anyone is interested in doing this it would be much appreciated, please reply to this post or message me directly and i will tell you a lot more about my expe
  12. Hey, fellow Hubbers! Looking at some property in Sheffield and came across a development called The Fitzgerald by developers called Romiga East Ltd. The numbers seem to stack up really well and as this is phase 2 of the apartments, I have direct comparables for both rent and purchase prices which is great. It would be off plan with completion around October 2019. The only question I have really is about the developers, I have not heard of them, I have of course done all the normal googling and cannot find anything bad about them. Just wondering if anyone has worked with them or purchased
  13. I am a newbie to property investment, I don't currently own my own home (Living with parents) and want to invest in property. I currently have 40K in my savings. As far as i'm aware, I'm unlikely to be able to get a BTL mortgage as you I will need to get a residential mortgage first? I want to know whether I should get a residential mortgage on my first property then wait out 2 years before I remortgage to a BTL mortgage? Is there another way around this? My aim is to build up cash flow and my portfolio over a few years through remortgaging and releasing equity to purchase additional
  14. Hi all – first post in and hoping I can use this platform to tap into some great minds. I have been listening to Rob(s) podcast for a while now and have been doing a lot to try and educate myself on the ins and outs of property investing for beginners. I feel like I have a learnt so much over the past year, but I have the biggest frustration of not being in a financial position ready to start my venture. I have recently purchased a house (joint mortgage with my partner) so have limited equity available to release from that. I earn a decent enough salary that I am able to put away aro
  15. Dear all, Has anyone used https://www.oneandonlypro.com/, they claim to have AI that provides BMV deals for property investors. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Best regards Tim
  16. Hi All, I've always been interested in the property market and have recently moved back to London from Dubai. I'm in a position where I have a £50k deposit and would like to make my first investment. I'm interested in Leeds. I was just hoping to get some advise on which specific area I should be looking at. I would preferably like to invest in an area which is popular with young professionals. I'm planning a trip to Leeds next month and have started doing some research. Could anyone who's had experience in the Leeds market give me any advise? A
  17. Hi all, When people ask why I buy flats in Gateshead it's easy to point out the extremely high yields but i've also been aware of the poor capital growth. I've always hoped that investment in Newcastle would eventually cause the affluence to spill over the Tyne into Gateshead and start to push the prices up there (maybe over the next 10 years or so). Has anyone got any opinions on the likelihood of this happening? I'm conscious that I might be investing in an area where the market value remains stagnant as it has done for the last at least 5 years!
  18. Hi, I had looked to same amazing properties in Manchester that I would love to invest (this is my first investment in the U.K.) but I was thinking of living there for some time before I start renting. Problem is the company selling are just looking for investor and since I’m new in the U.K. property business I was wonder if you think it’s possibel to live in this kind of properties and if this investment companies are reliable ( the developments are not built yet and they ask 25%initial deposit and the rest after completion of the development) Let me know your thoughts
  19. Hi, i was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with purchases through Sand Royale? They are based in southend-on-sea. I am interested in a couple of developments in Liverpool. One being Park Central on Liverpool Waters. But i can not find much information or any sort of reviews for this company. Would be great if someone can confirm that they are a legitimate company. The develooment is due for completion in 2020. I have to pay 20% deposit now and want to make sure my deposit will be secure with them.
  20. Hey guys, I'm Tom and I live in Rugby in the west midlands. I'm new to the game and have just set out my goals. I'm looking to achieve a monthly income from profit of £2000 in the next 3 years. I'm pretty busy with work so I've set the strategy of BTL with buying low and adding value, with the intention of recycling my deposits. I haven't got a lot of capital at the moment, however I have my own home with some equity built up. My first SMART goal is to buy one property in the first 12 months, which requires me to save a certain amount and release some from my home
  21. Hello My name is Jamie Parker, I've been in the property industry for 7 years and have worked my way to becoming a manager at Stone & Long Nottingham. I am in a position now where I am able to make all my clients the best returns and advise them on what property is right for them. I currently provide all my clients with lists of the best properties to invest in Nottinghamshire and I am happy to attend with them on viewings to offer further advise and support through the process. I hope to buy an investment property of my own but similar to the builder that has holes
  22. Hi, My girlfriend and I (Kirsti and Sam) have been to a sales seminar about making money from property and with a bit of research have decided not to go on their training course/sales pitch. We have however decided that we want to get into property investment for our future and to become financially free (hopefully), we have together done up a house already and have some equity in it and we enjoy the renovation side of things. Looking into some strategies we think starting off with a flip or 2 to build up our cash is the way we would like to go before getting our portfo
  23. Its amazing how much negativity there is at the moment amongst existing and long standing BTL investors (for negativity see propertytribes.com ) ..... I understand that tax changes have slimmed margins down. However the capital gains that most people have made and will make in the next few years if they have bought well and invested in their properties make it a lucrative market to be involved in. The property market has some way to go until it reaches the peak in this economic cycle.... London/South is dipping now for sure , however, huge infrastructure investment HS2/Cross Rail
  24. 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
  25. Hi Everyone, I currently earn in the higher income bracket and own 1 flat in London which is my current residence. I have 195K to invest at the moment and estimate that I would have a further 200K in 2018 once I renovate my current flat and remortgage as a buy to let (at 75% LTV). My plan would be living overseas at the end of 2018 with sufficient income from BTL Investments make to be liveable but the intention would be to continue workings but doing something a little some enjoyable that the current work. The London flat would remain under my
