  1. Hi, I'm keen to know if any of you flippers out there have had to revise your strategy in the short to medium term with all the uncertainty around coronavirus? I was thinking about venturing into flipping in July/August and felt I had a strategy that would allow me to reinvest profits over time into BTLs. I'm now not sure it's a good idea and wonder if it's better to research and focus on a different approach. Keen to know your thoughts and plans. Best wishes, Kris
  2. Hello all, I refuse to repeat the same opening sentences on all emails and introductions based on what is currently going on, however i do hope everyone is well of coarse! Me and my partner are young professional living in a rental apartment, we do not own a property or have a mortgage at the moment. We will soon be looking at mortgages at a later date, i am looking to start becoming a property developer and one day start my own business to the point where i no longer need my current job. I am researching the types of mortgages where by i c
  3. Hi Guy’s my names is Jody and live near Glastonbury and I am desperate to start investing. I have been busy educating myself For the past 6 months and waiting to build funds for my first BTL deposit and looking to release equity from my house. Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on good areas to invest in the Southwest / Somerset area. many thanks Jody
  4. My name is Nathan and after years of saying ‘I want to go into property’, I’m finally taking the steps to do it. My passion and desire to get into property can be traced all the way back to when I used to watch ‘Homes under the Hammer’ when I was “off school sick”. More sophisticatedly, I loved Grand Designs and my ultimate goal is to build my own home (beyond simply quitting the corporate world I currently work in). 2019 has been a pretty bad for me and without going into too much detail, I now find myself a bit of a rudderless ship. I’m using this as a springboard to better mys
  5. Hello all. I just wanted to take a few paragraphs to say hi and introduce myself. In summary ... I'm a time rich, knowledge poor (very!) accidental owner of 2 rental properties. I've run my own small business for the last 20 years and qualified as an accountant a very long time ago. I'm right at the start of deciding whether a property investment business would be right for me and am just at the stage of understanding just how much I don't know! I found Property Hub through this learning process. I live in Bristol and the French Alps. If any of you has any usef
  6. Hi guys, My wife and I have been thinking of quite a change of direction for a little while. The basic plan is to sell the London house, buy a home in liverpool, keep the current offset mortgage (as a cheap means of freeing extra capital) and have plenty of capital to invest. We plan to put the funds through a Ltd company as a significant loan to keep returns tax free as long as possible. My wife is a housing solicitor so we're planning to manage the places ourselves at least to start with. So much for the basics but there are a few questions that come to mind;
  7. Hi i have my own mortgaged property near London that I was going to sell to give me a 200k pot to move up north and flip in the summer (my son starts school in sept so we need to move this year) however the market value has gone down by 50k in the last 18 months so I could remortgage in a 5 year buy to let deal, just about break even with the new tax rules, and have a 70k pot to flip up north? Would you sell or buy to let if you were me? Thanks for replies, appreciated!
  8. Hi everyone, I am looking to get into property investment, but my wife and I purchased our house with the aid of Help to Buy so I need to wait to invest until this is paid for. In the 3 years since buying, we have managed to save up quite a nice deposit for a house to let out, but in Dec 2020 we will be due to pay back our Help To Buy (amount dependant on house prices at the time - but could be c. £70K). Does anyone have any guidance on effective ways to deal with Help To Buy and plan for when it needs to be paid? Thanks, Wilfitzy
  9. Hello Hubbers, I'm an excited, cautious, optimistic, newbie here, and loving what I'm seeing so far. I'm already working my way through the many ace podcasts, blogs, tutorials, vids, plus anything else I can get hold of to learn more about property investment. I've read/listened to many audio books on the subject up to now, and plan to keep the learning going before hopefully making the jump next year. I've gone from books that are essentially just an up sell to property investment courses promising you the world, and of course Rob D's excellent (and more realistic
  10. Hi Everyone, I would really appreciate a bit of advice, as I am looking to get into property investment for the first time and I feel like my head is in a spin, with all the information available and deciding which strategy is best for myself. I currently own a 3 bed semi detached house as my residential property, on my own, which is valued in the region of £145k, however in the near future I am looking to purchase a new residential property with my girlfriend, but I would like to keep my current property but change the mortgage to BTL. Just to add another complexity to it, I was
  11. Hi All, I am Neil and I have been in Leeds for over 15 years now although originally from the North East. I have not started my property journey yet and looking to inspiration and any advice to get into the Leeds market. I spent a large part of my career in corporate land working as an employee until the point redundancy gave me the chance to set up my own business and provide interim change management services. This has been going really well for the past few years although I feel that i nee to create multiple streams of income to ensure that I have a more balanced financial base.
  12. Hello everyone I'm James from Hull. I am new to property investing and I am still waiting to start my journey. I have a few ideas of how I want to start my portfolio but am searching for any advice and tips I can get!
