Brainy property investors ask Rob & Rob questions

This week we’re answering questions from some of the smartest investors we know…those who were smart enough to want to spend a day in person with us!

In January we held our first Property Hub Summit, where we spent a whole day locked in a room with 20 other investors, troubleshooting and brainstorming each other’s challenges and goals. The majority of the day was spent working on individual situations, but we also spent one session answering more general questions – and we’ve picked the most interesting of those questions to answer on this episode of the podcast.

They were:

  • What are the ins and outs of bridging finance?
  • What are your best tips on negotiation? (relevant Tim Ferriss article)
  • How do I get started in HMOs?
  • Do HMOs have a future?
  • Where do I go to finance more properties when my funds have dried up?
  • How do you buy below market value?
  • How do you deal with the “falling prices” phase of the property cycle, given that you can’t “short-sell” properties (listen to our episode on The 18 Year Property Cycle)

For our resource this week, big thanks to Adam Sturdy, who pointed us towards The National Self Build And Renovation Centre in Swindon.

If you’re into your refurbs or harbour ambitions of building your own house one day, this looks like a fantastic place to go – they offer courses on various subjects, and also have a life-size house with cross-sections so you can see all the different stages of development.

London property is finally set to crash!” claims OTT headline, but the article does a good job of summing up the factors that lead many to predict that London’s massive climb is coming to an end.

There’s nothing that we haven’t spoken about on the podcast before, but it’s a nice summary of all the evidence – and while we’re not saying that London is a bad place to invest in property by any means, it shows why we’d be avoiding it at this exact moment.
