Starting Out - Hampshire Based


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

About Me:

I am a 30 year old looking at getting into BTL for long term growth, have read plenty of material, books, podcasts etc. Being a home owner myself, we bought below market value and have done a refurbishment and added equity to our primary residence although this isn't the particular route i want to go down I learned a lot in the process.

I am an Engineer within the Merchant Navy industry and work 3 months on/off so have plenty of time to spend on building my strategy and portfolio.

 

Main reason for post, was supposed to be at the Southampton meet up tonight but cant make it due to illness. That said, is there anyone around the same stage as myself in the Southampton area that might want to connect just to share tips and the odd boost of encouragement along the wya.

 

Would like to hear from you.

 

Keep up the posts guys, its invaluable to us newbies.

 

Regards,

David

@simon r @dhenry54 I am also a new investor in Southampton looking to start early next year. Would love to connect with you both to go through this process together. 

Hi everyone. Seems the thread were opened a couple of years ago and would be great if you share where you are with your journey. I am also based in Hampshire and would like to start my BLT portfolio. 

Quick question. If you were to choose between Southampton and Winchester for your BTL portfolio, which one would you go? And why?

I think Winchester is better for capital appreciation and Southampton is better for a better RIO and stronger cash flow.

Recently completed on my first BTL a 1 bed flat, tenants moving in next week all being well

Would be good to hear how others are doing, and meet up in the future when things are more normal perhaps 

Hi Simon. Great to hear that. Please share more details about your first 1bed flat. Is it in Hampshire? If yes, what city? Also would be great to share your end purchase price and the rent you're getting. Thanks
