This week The Robs are talking about an important calculation. They’ve never talked about it before, but it’s one you need to start using.
That’s right, they’re talking about how you can make money from property and the different ways you can achieve this.
There’s a popular debate on whether you should optimise your goals based on the monthly rental income you need or the capital growth potential. But what they’ve not really talked about in detail is the total return that you’re going to make from property over time.
So this week, The Robs are covering the total return that you can make from your property investment, including how to calculate it and ultimately, why it matters.
Want to know how you can work out the return on investment for your potential property? Tune in to listen to how The Robs break it down.
In the news this week we’re looking at the latest figures from Hometrack and the House Price Index for May 2019. When you look at the top cities in the country, The Robs are pretty pleased that they tipped four of the top five as ones to invest in this year. Especially Liverpool with prices being up by 5%!
The report looks at the most affordable cities as a first time buyer and no surprise that London, Cambridge and Oxford were at the bottom of the list. But what was surprising was that the most affordable location in the UK for a first time buyer is Liverpool!
Now this is fantastic news as it sets the indicator that the growth Liverpool is currently seeing is set to continue and has the furthest to grow, even though it’s a current hotspot.
Check out the report and see what other cities tick the affordability box.
We’ve also got ANOTHER new video up on YouTube for you. This time The Robs are talking about using a limited company as a buy to let investor, and if they’re really necessary.
