  1. Hi All, Interested in purchasing a buy to let in Nottingham. We live fairly close but do not know the area at all. We have done some research of areas to avoid but also appreciate some of these properties will produce higher yields. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations of best areas to invest in Nottingham? Looking at a single let for this investment so professionals, couples, families but looking at keeping the property price around the 120k mark with any refurb and additional costs on top of this. Thank you in advance Cass
  2. Hi everyone! Just to introduce myself I am 26 and work full time with a busy job in the NHS! I bought my home almost one year ago and am now looking to buy my first buy to let and really hope that this will be the start of a portfolio. My main focus is capital growth - a good yield would be great, but I am happy to compromise on this. I am focusing on Nottingham as it is near to where I live so I think that this would be a great starting point. At the moment I am looking at houses only because I understand them more- as I build on my portfolio I would be keen to look at flats at a l
  3. I have been researching and looking for my first buy to let property and have focused on Nottingham! I have seen a couple of ex-council properties and have been advised by local lettings agents that they would rent out well to families, which is exactly what I am looking for! In terms of numbers, they work well too! The only concern I have is simply just the fact that they are ex council. I know that in terms of renting this isn’t so much of a problem these days, but I am looking for a mix of yield and capital growth- I do not rely on the income, but as it is my first some good cas
  4. Hello, I'm Richard and new to this! For the past 5 years I've been living in South Korea. My family and I have relocated to Sheffield (for my wife's work) and we've just bout a family home! I was hoping for some advice, as I steam through previous podcast episodes, read the backdated magazines I've subscribed to and educate myself, I thought I may as well go the whole hog and post on a forum! I'm please to say, I'm now in a pace where I have crystallised my goal and strategy. It is long term, secure my future, hopefully enjoy a bit of extra cash in my pocket each month along the wa
  5. We are running a one off event this week to allow some of our more seasoned investors to share their journey and learnings from early beginnings through to seasoned observations of what they would do differently. Of of course it will also provide an opportunity to network and discuss the investing scene here in the vibrant and busy Nottingham.

  6. My first post on here.... I'm looking for High Yield BTL's 8%+ I live in Leicester, which has low Yields, even in the cheaper area's of the city (Narborough Road etc) Nottingham has been my next step after listening to the Podcasts but I cannot seem to find any High Yield Property Has anyone got any suggestions? I would like to self-manage, but I am open to having my property managed if the numbers stack up. Also I am open to buying property in other locations but would like them within 1-2 hours of Leicester Appreciate your feedback PS. I do have experience
  7. 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
  8. Hi everyone, I would be hugely grateful for some advice about the desirability of certain Nottingham areas, as I am looking to invest max. 100k in my first buy-to-let property. There seem to be some good deals in Hyson Green, but does anyone know what the rental market is like there? Do students avoid it? Similarly, are there parts of Forest Field and Basford that you'd recommend as being more appealing than others? Huge thanks to anyone who can give advice on these. Cheers, Kat
  9. Dear all, we are expats based in Germany and am looking for a letting agency, preferably in NG1. There are sooo many advertised online, and obviously every agency claims to be the best, so we are looking for a recommendation. We are back in the UK a few times throughout the year but not enough to manage our property ourselves. If you know someone reliable, or if you are such a reliable letting agent then please contact me! Thanks for your help! PS needless to say, I already contacted The Property Hub Letting Agent in Nottingham
  10. Hi everyone I'm new in the property investment and would love to get some location advice from experts. I've been looking at Liverpool (L7 and L6) and made 2 offers last few months. Unfortunately didn't go well which turn down my motivation and interest a bit.. But i should keep positive and move on. Recent podcast, Rob D & B mentioned 6 locations to consider. I'd like to get a location advice which area I should look at that based on my case:- My scenario : Maximum property price : 130k 10% Deposit + 90% mortgages Looking for 3 bedrooms.
  11. Hello All, I am looking to make my first property investment this year and my decided location is Nottingham. I am ideally looking to buy a house (personal preference i have nothing against flats). I was just wondering are there any roads/streets that i should avoid buying. I have done some research and the post codes that stick out to me are NG1, NG3 & NG7. Would love to know what anybody thinks about these postcodes. Kind regards, Jay
  12. Hi everyone !! I am looking to buy my first btl property. Can anyone recommend best Nottingham area to invest in..... Looking at properties up to 100k at the start so i guess options are limited... Many thanks to those who reply. Greg
  13. Evening all Im looking to make some new contacts in the letting agents world. Ive got someone in the role but im hoping to get to know other agents who may have good contacts in the trades. Earlier this year I had some very bad work done which caused me to loose confidence in the agents recommended trades men. If anyone can share or discuss a contact id appreciate the help. Jay
  14. Hi All. I am from Nottingham. Managed to raise 60k with my friend. We both want to start our property journey buying 1st house doing it up and sell. Ideally want to repeat flips couple times to increase our capital and buy 2 - 3 BTL to start saving towards our future. Now question. Is there any short term loan company you recommend from Nottingham? By short term I mean 4-8 months till we refurb and sell...... Any help, ideas, thoughts from Nottingham people more than welcome.... Apart of the auctions, where else to find out prospective propert
  15. 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
  16. Hi everyone, Delighted to have found the property hub forum! I've just been reading the dix books and very excited about entering in to an investment project in Nottingham. I'm new to this and so I'm just in the research stage... getting to grips with the areas around and the type of tenants. Rough strategy will be single let buy to rent semi detached. I have some building experience and a background in numbers (structural engineering). I'm looking forward to the next meetup at the lion. Cheers, Graham
  17. Hi, Just starting out and trying to source my 'power team'. Any recommendations for good, reliable surverys, builder, accountants and mortgage brokers in the Nottingham/East Midlands area? Going into my first buy to let, first strategy, first time everything so would really like honest and reliable people with great recommendations so as to lift a bit of the worry when just starting out. oh and to those from the Nottm area I'll be attending my first property hub meet up in Notts soon too, Thanks.
  18. Hello, I have been observing the Property Hub a while now and can see the potential of finally joining in. After having gained experiences with redeveloping and refurbishing properties in the London market I now have a small portfolio of my own. Now I would like to expand into other cities such as Nottingham and Manchester. My goal is to buy several 2-3 bedroom BTL and maybe even join venture on a development project in Nottingham. I have a build up a small team that can take on any building process and have some more contacts in Nottingham and London. If y
  19. Hi All, My names Andrew and I've owned a 2 bed BTL in Stevenage for the last few years which I've really enjoyed managing myself. Spent the last few years concentrating on my career but now ready to take the portfolio to the next level. Interested in buying a 2/3 bed in Nottingham very soon. If refurb required, I'm planning to live and work from the property while I do it up. No flipping, I'm in this for the long term. Would like to aim for a new property every 18 months. Work as an Office 365 Consultant (Most things Microsoft). Would be more than happy to t
  20. Hi there, I wondered if anyone could recommend a good broker that specialises in limited company mortgages? I'm based over in Nottingham and so far have struggled to find any deals that don't come with eye-watering arrangement fees / interest rates. If anyone can point me in the right direction or can recommend a high street lender which now offers a competitive product please let me know as I'm certain there's got to be better deals out there than what I've managed to find so far... Thanks! David
  21. Hullo! I'm hoping there are some landlords out there with experience in leasing property through Housing Aid who can give me some advice? I would like to be both a socially conscious AND profitable landlord. Whilst I appreciate my profit margins will be a lot less, I strongly feel that anyone of us could easily fall on hard times and would like to help families who have. I have meet with my local Housing Aid department, who are very keen to get landlords on board. They have a massive demand for 2 bedroom homes to house families. There are many pros and I'm sure cons:
  22. Hullo! Wondered if anyone could recommend a good decorator in the Nottingham/Rushcliffe area (who won't charge the West Bridgford premium!)... ideally with good plastering skills and/or contacts? Initially this will be for our own house, which desperately needs a lick of paint, but the plan is to add them to my property 'team' list if they are any good! In the set-up stage of my property journey and thought this would be a good way of testing some tradespeople out. Any recommendations (or don't touch with a barge pole) would be greatly received.
  23. Hello everyone! I’ve found my way to this forum through the amazing podcasts that Rob and Rob present. I’m a bit of a podcast junkie and having listened to most of the property ones out there. ‘The Property Podcast’ has been by far the most informative and useful at my stage of learning. Looking through the property hub website has been even more helpful with all the great free resources giving me a great starting point to work from. I live near Loughborough, but have family in Leicester, and work mainly in Nottingham (and a bit in Mansfield). I moved back to the famil
  24. Hi Guys Been following the podcast for a little while now, also have the 100 Property Investment Tips book - it's about time I joined the conversation! I work as a student & HMO letting agent in Nottinghamshire - currently I'm not investing but plan to do so in the near future. With experience in dealing with students, HMO properties, property management, property sourcing and rent to rent options; it would be great to provide any help I can to investors so we may share, learn and grow as a team! I aim to be an active investor in the East Midlands within the next 18 months
  25. Hi All, a little while ago I responded to a question about Nottingham city centre, and I thought my response to that question should probably be logged in the 'location specific advice' section of the forum, so here is my response to that question with my knowledge of the Nottingham market. I hope this may be of some use to people: I used to go to Uni Nottingham Trent and can say that there is a very high student population in Notts and virtually any area in the centre has students due to the multiple campus there. Nottingham Trent Uni is based right in the heart if the city
