  1. I know it’s a lot to ask of a builder to come to a viewing especially if I haven’t worked with them before and considering there is no guarantee that my offer will get accepted but does this happen? If so, how is the best way to approach this? My strategy is to BRRR yet I have no experience in refurbs. I’ve found a ‘smelly’ property that is ripe for a refurb but how do I make sure there is no major structural damage or other issues which may pop up once my offer has been accepted? Is there any way to mitigate these risks prior to putting in an offer? Thanks to this wonderfu
  2. Hello all, I've listened to all of The Property Hub podcast and now a new forum member. I am based in Kent but as a keen mountain biker spend some time in Wales, in particular Afan Forest. I am interested in buying a property that requires a refurb close to the Afan Forest Mountain Bike Trail Centre with the hope to do it up and run it as a Holiday Let for mountain bikers and hikers. I was looking at smaller villages such as Cymmer, or possibly larger towns like Maesteg and Neath. Putting Covid to one side, my hesitation is that bookings will be much slower during the winter mon
  3. Hi All, My name is Bradley I'm 22 years old from Manchester and I've been a keen fan of PH for a good year and a half now, I first came across PH when I purchased 2 of there books on amazon whilst talking to myself on a train home from London about my vision with property and where I would like to go with it. PH podcasts were my favourite whilst travelling with work and I feel like I benefited a lot from this, I'm a joiner by trade going on to do construction site management and I have worked away from home ever since I started as an apprentice running commercial fit out projects, I
  4. Hi Property Hub My name is Suzannah. I provide property solutions and support by doing improvements to help maximise the value and potential of property. I have a PA background but it all started for me in property about 25 years ago when I was fortunate enough to inherit a low mortgage from my parents who were business owners and property investors in North London. I have always had in interest in property but never knew what to do with the accumulating equity of my property for many years. My second property was bought in 2013 in East London. After meeting my partner 2 years

  6. Hi fellow Hubbers My partner and I are looking at investing in Birmingham and surrounds and was wondering if anyone can help on the better areas to invest in? We have only thus far invested in Sheffield and do not know the Midlands very well. We are looking to do a flip potentially, minor works though as it would be our first, or just a simple buy to let if it presents itself. Probably in the £60K - £90K region cash wise. Also happy to invest in towns where the 'ripple effect' has not yet taken hold! I am open to areas in and around Birmingham up to 1 hour
  7. Anyone have any experience in dealing with Woodworm ?? In getting a bathroom refurbished in a tenement flat and there is woodworm damage to the flooring. I was aware when i bought the flat, it only looks minor but these beetles can be a nightmare to deal with but i got under the flooring pre-purchase and found the joists to be rock hard and seemed to be in good nick . I also got a quote to get it sorted from the surveyor who undertook the survey for the vendor which was a manageable £580 given the retention of £5K. So the surveyors would hire a specialist contractor to undertake t
  8. Hi there, I'm looking to speak to people who have started property portfolios in the North of England. I'm from Hull originally and still regularly go back there because my family are still there. I'm interested in that area but also the rest of Yorkshire and the North West. I'm in the process of trying to work out which strategy would be best for me as I live in London but I'm ready and able to invest in 2 to 3 properties in the next 12 - 18 months. I'm particularly interested in speaking to people who have done refurbs, HMOs, multiple property portfolios,
  9. Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a property to flip in Birmingham and was wondering if anyone else either flips or invests there? If so I wondered if they would be able to help me out with regards to areas to avoid, or potentially good areas to look at? By budget is really around the 100K - 120K mark and I am looking to make 20% profit at the end of the project. I am currently analysing the area and viewing properties in various locations but obviously it is a big place and this can be very time consuming so I am looking to try and speed up my next deal and be more efficient with my vi
  10. Hi friends, Hope everyone is having good time. My project is due to start in Nov first week for complete renovation work (2 bed room terraced house) in Medway. This requires complete work of replacing existing electrical wirings, plumbing, gas, plastering, painting, flooring, Kitchen/bathroom replacement etc. I do not have good experience with builders with my last 2 projects as they were not good at their estimates and meeting timelines. They gave me higher estimate and didn't meet their timelines. Please recommend and suggest based on your experiences friends. Thanks, Raj
  11. Hi all, I first subscribed to the Hub in December and only just got round to the forums as I've been listening to the podcasts and reading Beyond the Bricks - twice! Not to mention the new magazine which is FAB. My Other Half (Nige) and I have been learning about property investment for a few years now but lots of family "stuff" has got in the way and meant we just haven't been able to get serious about it, although things are changing for the better now so we are getting our strategy together. My background is 20+ years in engineering bossing blokes around (always fun), and then I
