Painful lessons and expensive mistakes: stories from our first development

This week on The Property Podcast, Rob & Rob are getting personal.

Property development is no easy task, and this week The Robs open up about everything that’s gone wrong, and what lessons can be learnt.  

If you’re an avid Property Podcast listener, you’ll know that the development in Crewe is the first site to come out of the ground for Property Hub Homes. While they’d have liked for the process to have been a walk in the park, sometimes things just don’t go to plan.

And whilst the finished result looks pretty darn amazing (if we do say so ourselves! – Rob B has shared some pictures on Instagram) there’s been a steep learning curve for all involved.

So if you’re interested in diving into the world of property development, this is the podcast episode for you. Tune in to hear all about why they chose Crewe, what process they followed and also to find out what went wrong…

In the news this week, it appears that tenants can now sue their landlord directly if their home is unfit for human habitation. However it isn’t half as bad as it sounds: you’ll learn why on the podcast. Plus, there’s a strong argument in saying that if your property is in such a bad condition, should you really be a landlord in the first place?

So a lot of lessons are to be learnt from this week’s Property Podcast, and although things could have been done very differently and had a different outcome, The Robs firmly believe that ‘if you can dream it, you can do it – Walt Disney’.
