Using the ripple effect to find the next property hotspot

Ok, so we already said there was one property concept you need to know about… make that two. The ripple effect shows how housing prices rise from a centre point outwards, and we’ve all already seen it happen in London. The ripple effect isn’t just happening in London, right now, the same could be said for Birmingham and Manchester for example.

What you’ll learn:

If you want to find the next property hotspots before they get hot, this is the episode for you – thank us later.
