How can I source new build houses remotely? PLUS: Can I get income from my student HMO outside term-time?

Welcome back to another episode of Ask Rob & Rob! As always, we’ve got two great questions this week, so let’s get stuck in! 

First up, we’ve got a question from Harry. 

Harry is an overseas investor with a portfolio predominately made up of flats. 

Our Houses vs. Flats episode on The Property Podcast and the high demand for houses during a recent Property Hub Invest launch in Sheffield has got him thinking. 

He’d like to diversify and get his hands on some new build houses, but he’s struggling to source these remotely. 

Harry would love to hear if Rob & Rob have got any advice on how he can source the properties he’s after. 

Next up, we’ve got a question from Adam in Swansea. 

He’s currently purchasing his first HMO in a student area and is looking to let this out to some students. 

Unfortunately, he’s just missed the start of the academic year and he’s expecting the property to remain empty because of this. 

What Adam wants to know is how can he monetise the property until the next academic year starts and avoid a void period. 

Tune in to find out what advice the guys have got for our callers.
