  1. Hi My name is Marie and I am new to investing and buying property. It is actually a scary thing but wanting and willing to take the jump. I feel quite old as I am seeing lots of really young people starting their journey. I have never owned a property and neither has my partner so everything is new. We have a broker that we have found and a solicitor that seems really good and my husband is an accountant, so I think we are set. We have some areas (further north) that we are looking at but we are unfamiliar with them as we are both Londoners. So any advice about areas to stay clear off wou
  2. Hello all! My partner and I are really keen to get started with building a property portfolio of Buy-to-Lets and HMOs. We have been doing a lot of research over the last 9 months and have begun saving some cash to get us started. I have around £6000 in a Lifetime ISA (and growing by the month) and we are trying to come up with our strategy for the next 5-10 years to create a property portfolio. Our aim is to be able to either quit our jobs, or be in a position where we can work/volunteer in an area that we are passionate about without having to worry about the salary. We do no
  3. Please can someone help! I am in the process of buying my first property through my new ltd company. My guess is it will complete in 6 weeks or so. It is a 3 bed property that will be a single let. The property is perfectly habitable now and could easily be rented out as it is, however I want to do a fairly big refurb. E.g. replacing the kitchen and bathroom, new carpets, redecorate etc. This will mostly be a like-for-like refurb and I don't think the majority of it will count as a capital expense. If I do this work before I first put tenants in, am I right in understanding th
  4. Hello everyone, I'm Bob, and i'm from Leeds currently working as a Prosthetist (artificial limbs). I'm 33 and for the last 6 months I have been researching property investment as a way to one day reduce my hours at work or even leave work all together as well and building assets for the future. I'm gutted that it has taken me 33 years to learn about the concepts of storing wealth and investing, but i am now doing everything can to achieve my goals. After recently buying my first home with all my savings, i am having to start from scratch to build up a deposit for my fi
  5. Hi Everyone, Im about to ask a question that i'm sure is posted on here on a daily basis but no matter how many pods i listen too or how many articles i read i find my head spinning and unable to make a decision.... maybe i'm suffering from analysis paralysis? The Facts: Im 25 and own my own house (with a mortgage) i have £35,000 ready to invest and could potentialy take some more equity out of my current home if i needed to about another £15K. I Live in Portsmouth and i know everyones stats and saying my area is probably the worst place to invest for capital growth right
  6. Hello everyone, I'm just getting started on my property adventure and I need a bit of advice regarding joint ventures. I have time to work; find motivated sellers and identify good investment opportunities and deals, however I don't have any funds for deposits (a story I'm sure you've all heard many times before). I am saving however it will be at least 18 - 24 months before I can consider putting up a deposit of my own for a BTL mortgage. I can look to borrow a deposit from family, and I may still do this, however I like the idea of a joint venture with a property investor with so
  7. Hello, my name is Ashley and I am 23 year olds. I purchased my first property 2 years ago it was to live in but was in need of a full refurb. Literary the full works, so before moving in I hired a few builders and a year later moved in... new electrics, fibre glass roofs, kitchen, converted from 2 too a 3 bedroom, two new bathrooms, new garden fencing and done lots of painting. I purchased for 54k and spent around 22k and recently had it valued between 100-110 but the estate agent advised it would be a quick sale at 95k. So I have really made a minimum of 19k and maybe more.
  8. Hello All, I'm very excited to be here after having discovered the Property Podcast a month ago - since then I’ve been hooked! So thank you very much to Rob and Rob for the education and entertainment. Hopefully you guys can help me get off on the correct path: My goal: to build a portfolio of professional lets over the next 20 years that will generate a net income of £3k a month (plus inflation) My situation: - I own and live in a house in Cambridgeshire - Luckily I have just a touch over £100k in equity that I could currently rele
  9. Hi My name is James. Bit of a back story; My dad bought a 2 bed flat near where I grew up in `97 after reading rich dad poor dad. He was terrified of making a loss and its turned into a gold mine. When he died in `04 my mum used the money from his life insurance to buy more property and now has a small portfolio. Two flats in South East London near where we live, a flat in Preston and a student pod in Loughborough. She built this up as her pension. It has had fantastic capital growth and great cash flow with a very low loan to book value. A little over a year ago my m
  10. Hi John here, I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding property in general to see if its something which would make financial sense. I've looked at it in the past however with lack of funds it hasn't been viable. Recently I have come into some inheritance due to a family member passing away and instead of spending it, I would like to invest it into something that will continue to grow. Little about me - 24 Years old, Salary 20-25k, Lump Sum £125k. What I'm Looking for - - Should I invest in a house or flat?, I unders
  11. G'day Property Hub, my name is Chris, I'm from Liverpool but currently I'm in a library in Melbourne, Australia (the weather is crap before you ask), (and its 1.01pm, again, before you ask). I quit my job as an engineer to go travelling with my girlfriend last year, I'm returning home in a few weeks with the intention of starting a new career in real estate. My property history and hopefully future: I own a B2L property in Liverpool already and have had it for 10 years. I would like to carry on investing in Liverpool, I hear the L1, L3, L6, L7 and L15 areas are good ar
  12. Hey guys! My parents and I are looking to start investing and developing property, but we are completely new to it. As a 26 year old, I haven't even bought a property of my own, so I'm not sure how the process works. (Mortgages, financing, etc). I'm looking to get any practical useful advice on the steps I need to take to get started. Our starting sum isn't much, around 40K, and I was thinking it would be best to start with Buy to Sells to increase our investment sum, and that would then allow us to have the option to get into Buy to Lets as well. I'm not su
  13. Hi Everyone I'm a total newbie. I am 47, in full time employment and would like to be retired by 55. I have a small amount in savings but not enough for 25% deposit on a property. I do, however, have no mortgage on my home. The strategy I'm contemplating is taking out a remortgage on my home to cover the deposit and then getting a BTL mortgage to purchase my first rental. Is this a sensible approach? It would probably take me around 3 years to get to £25k for a deposit, saving £300 as i am currently. I live in the North West and am looking to invest locally, star
  14. Hi All, I am a 25-year-old property investor based in Essex who started out about a year and a half ago now, and currently have two properties under my belt. I have been thinking about selling my first investment property, as It is tying up a lot of my money and isn’t giving me a good enough return (re-mortgaging doesn’t release much in this situation). Once sold I should be left with £90K after fees and tax. I am looking to put this money in to a couple of HMO’s aimed at professionals in the midlands or maybe further north E.g. Liverpool, as I would like to increase my
  15. Hello, I'm Rose, I'm a chartered town planner with 5 years experience post degree. I have experience working at a housebuilder, and in both the private and public sector in my relatively short career to date. I would like to invest in property in the long term, but I am making my way through all the podcasts and learning more before formulating a strategy. My initial ideas for my strategy are to work to my strengths in planning. I am thinking of buying land to get planning permission for new dwelling(s) and/or finding existing properties with potential for extension to sell on. However, I am c
  16. Hi All, I thought I would introduce myself. I am not a professional property developer but have a house in London that I am renting out - I am renting in Bristol so that I can get to know the area and where I would like to live...... However, I am looking at a mixed use commercial property to buy and set up my cookery school business. I am looking at a wreck at the moment and hoping to get some advice on the project as I have never renovated a property before....so I will be cruising the renovations and planning section Nice to meet you all.....

  17. Hi everyone, My name’s Laura, I’m 32 and I’m based in Stockport, just south of Manchester. I’m very new to this property game. Last year myself and my husband bought our first house and that has been my only purchase to date! I’m fortunate enough not to be part of the rat-race: I run a wedding decorations business via Etsy.com. However, my income is very up and down and I’m looking for a way to “smooth” it over the course of the year. Right now we are comfortable enough living predominantly on my husband’s salary but my plan is to create a solid income for

  19. Hi everyone. I am totally new to property investing, and trying to soak up as much information as possible.... There is a lot of good (and bad) information floating about on the internet at the moment, it can be hard for us newbies to filter out. As a totally newbie I am looking at investing in the south wales valley areas, my original aim was to start with small cheaper 1/2 bed units to focus on LHA tenants. Although now am leaning towards flipping more run down small houses, and refreshing them to a decent standard for 1st time buyers with aim to building deposits o

'I plan to save to reach 30% in each property for a deposit. 'I have limited skills other than hard graft. Hope to get in touch with others.
  21. Hi everyone, I'm new here. A young and eager investor from Brighton, when property feels out of reach, in passively managed (index) funds. My partner and I manage a portfolio of clients for holiday and business lets through Airbnb at https://hellohost.co. Having bought our own flat a little over three years ago, I've learned the property market in Brighton is remarkable. Working on a buy-to-let investment, but still some way off - crunching numbers on investing in a holiday let we could self-manage. Would love to hear from any of you who have opted for riskier means of rental yield

  23. Hi, I am 28 and from Leicester. I am a full time IT consultant and have always been passionate about property and investing in this realm. Myself and my sister recently inherited my mothers house. The house had a few snags which I completed and project managed and this is now successfully rented out. I solely manage the property as its only round the corner from my own home and being a people person being a landlord is a great job. Having this little dabble into this world is good fun and has gave me the confidence to look into building a portfolio for me and my sis
  24. Hi, First of all I would like to say thank you Rob & Rob for having all this information in one place, I am truly grateful to have by chance read one of your books It was after reading The complete guide to Property Investment, I knew I had to reignite my passion for property. It has always been not having the start up funding that has made me put off taking that step forward. But I know with the right plan I can raise the funds one way or another. I'm very keen on starting out in property, in the buy to let area including HMOs eventually and the occas
