From Hairdressing to Housing Providers: Laura's Leap Into Supported Living

A couple of weeks ago, we hosted a masterclass on supported living.I'll be honest—I'm far from an expert in supported living, with my knowledge mostly coming from quick Google searches.That's why I invited a good friend and an expert in the field, Chris Bermit, to lead the content for that day.While I took on the role of host, the real insights came from Chris, especially when he introduced us to Laura Ackers, today's special guest.Before this masterclass, I hadn't met Laura, but her presentation on supported living was nothing short of inspiring.She shared her experiences and detailed a specific deal that captivated everyone listening.It was then I knew we had to have her share her story with all of you on the podcast.Laura has achieved an incredible amount in a relatively short period.Starting with some experience in renovating her own home, she found herself focusing more on property after being furloughed from her sales role in the hairdressing industry in 2020 due to COVID.Starting with single lets, she quickly moved into HMOs, dedicating all her time to this new venture.Her success allowed her to retire her husband, Dan, from the corporate world within just a couple of years.Now, with a mix of professional HMOs that she self-manages, and a growing supported living portfolio, Laura has built a significant business in just three years.In today's episode, Laura shares details and insights on how she developed her business, offering valuable lessons for all of us.I'm thrilled to have her here and I'm sure you'll enjoy what she has to say.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

It's a Family Affair - How Two Brothers And Their Father Created Freedom From Rent to Rent, with Daniel Blacker

I first crossed paths with Daniel a few months ago, during one of our commercial to residential open days.Daniel, along with all our guests, shared his introduction, and right away, it was clear he was someone whose story deserved the spotlight.His tale is a beacon of inspiration and motivation, showcasing the remarkable possibilities that come with determination and vision.Daniel's venture into the world of property began about seven years ago, alongside his dad and brother.Together, they embarked on a mission to build a business that would bring them more freedom and opportunity.They started with rent-to-rent strategies, dedicating their initial years to developing a profitable portfolio in what's arguably one of the most accessible paths into property investment—despite requiring some capital.However, what sets Daniel and his family apart is their forward-thinking decision to not just stop at rent-to-rent.They leveraged their success by investing in buying assets, utilizing profits from their existing portfolio and forming partnerships with investors seeking a more hands-off investment strategy.Learning about their story, the transitions they've navigated through, their growth, and the invaluable lessons along the way has been incredibly enlightening.We believe you'll find Daniel's story as captivating and motivational as we did.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

From HMOs to Hotel Rooms: an update from Philippa and Tom Charrier

Six years ago, Philippa and Tom Charrier, the dynamic duo behind the Fat Properties brand, graced the IPI podcast with their presence to share the humble beginnings of their student HMO ventures in Lancaster—my old university haunt. About half a year later, Tom made a return appearance to drop a bombshell: he was ditching his day job to plunge headfirst into property investment. We dove deep into their thought process, the meticulous planning that paved the way for this bold move, and why the timing felt just right.Fast forward to today, and it's like no time has passed at all. Though we've kept in touch and I've keenly watched their progress, it boggles my mind that it's been five whole years since our last chat. And what a ride it's been! The Charriers are back on the show to walk us through the rollercoaster of the last five years—how their business has evolved, the strategic shifts they've made, and the exciting new ventures beyond the realm of student housing.In the early days, they zeroed in on a niche strategy that not only allowed them to specialize but also to build a robust income foundation to support their dreams. Once they hit a certain level of financial comfort and security, the world became their oyster.They've since branched out into thrilling projects like hotel conversions, grade two listed buildings, serviced accommodations, and passion projects that still line their pockets, all while resting on a cushy financial safety net.Whether you're just dipping your toes into the property investment waters or you're a seasoned investor contemplating your next big move, there's a treasure trove of insights waiting for you in this episode.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Boosting your portfolio income without buying any more deals, with David Wigram-Tomes

Today's guest is no stranger to the show, despite actually never appearing on a podcast episode with us in the past. And that is because his wife, his partner in crime, Jackie Tomes, has been a guest several times in the past and often refers to ‘Detail Dave’ with affection during those interviews. Today I'm thrilled to be joined by Dave himself talking through what really gets him excited and fired up, which is all things numbers, spreadsheets, and data to help make sure that as property investors, our portfolios are optimised as much as possible. And through one of his services that he provides to his clients, the Portfolio Cashflow Optimizer, he has had visibility to more portfolios, more data, more financial information than any of us will most likely ever see in a lifetime.Through that he has spotted trends, patterns, opportunities, and areas where most of us are probably failing to maximise the income that we generate from our portfolio. So throughout today's interview, we talk a little bit about where this problem came from, how he went about solving it for his own business, and also some of the hints, the tips, the ideas, the opportunities that he has seen from his work with his clients that you can maybe apply to your own portfolio as well.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

From Lump Sum Land Assembly Profits to Recurring HMO Revenue, with George Ball

Today's guest, George Ball, brings a unique perspective to the property industry. With a background in sales, George has crafted a highly profitable strategy in land assembly. This involves negotiating with multiple homeowners or property owners to create parcels of land that he secures planning for. He then either develops these himself or sells them on to another developer for a considerable profit.However, George realized that alongside these substantial profits, he also wanted more recurring revenue. That's where our paths crossed. A couple of years ago, George found our Inside HMO Investing course and recognized that HMOs were the perfect route for him to build up healthy monthly recurring profits alongside his development and land assembly pipeline.Since then, George has built up an impressive HMO portfolio, which he continues to focus on today, in tandem with his land assembly and development projects. There is a wealth of knowledge to be gained from his experiences, including how he got started, what his early deals looked like, his current focus, and his plans for the future.We're confident you'll enjoy this insightful discussion. If you have any questions for George or want to discover more about his journey, all of his contact details will be shared at the end of today's episode.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

My top property lessons learned from 400 podcast interviews

Hey folks, welcome to what was supposed to be episode 400 of the Inside Property Investing podcast, but apparently is episode 401.  What I thought would be nice to  celebrate 400 episodes and almost nine years of the podcast was to run through some of the biggest lessons that I've learned from the various podcast interviews that I've done - some from specific guests and others just by osmosis from hearing them time and time again from lots of different people succeeding in the property world and talking about how they were able to do it... seeing the repetition, seeing the things that have applied in multiple cases that have resulted in growth beyond what the average or the aspiring investor achieves.Whether this is the first episode you've listened to, or your 400th, thanks for being here - I really appreciate you! ========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

My change in focus for 2024 - from Reset to Responsibility

I'm just coming out of my little Christmas / New Year hibernation. I've been up in Scotland for a couple of weeks at my folks house with Victoria and our little girl, hanging out with family and eating all the food and watching all the Christmas films and doing all that stuff. So I just want to start off by wishing you a massive Happy New Year, whatever you've been up to, whatever holidays you celebrate. I hope you had a good little break whilst everyone else shut down and you're feeling refreshed and ready to go for the year ahead.Now this is a New Year focused episode. I'm not talking about goal setting today though. I went a little bit off piste and wanted to focus on something that came into my life, an exercise that I first  came across about 12 months ago that had a big impact on my 2023 and something that I will continue to do going forward.And I thought I'd share that process with you and share a bit about the impact that it's had on me and hopefully give you some inspiration about how it maybe can impact you and what your intention could be for 2024, not necessarily to replace goals or your goal setting process, but to sit alongside it. So I hope you enjoy today's episode. Like I say, it's had a massively meaningful and profound impact on me, both from a personal point of view and a business perspective and I hope it does the same for you. ========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Property investing in the French alps? Yes please! With Gina Ewart

You may have heard that over the past couple of summers, we've been spending a little bit of time in the mountains, specifically in a sleepy little ski resort called Morzine. And after decades of enjoying ski holidays in the winter, we thought, let's go check out what all the fuss is about for mountain summer holidays. We had an absolute blast. And in the process, we were lucky enough to meet a family who run a business called Reach 4 the Alps in Morzine. They've been doing it since 2000, so over 20 years now.And in today's episode, I get the chance to catch up with Gina, one half of the business and family partnership that has been running that company for those 20-plus years. And we get to talk about a whole bunch of different things. I mean, at its core, it's a service accommodation business, hence the relevance. But I know a lot of us are investing in property to do other things with our lives, right? Property is not the end, it is the means to that end. But maybe we could combine the two.Maybe we could enjoy a different lifestyle, a different way of life, a different geographic location, or just something that we are more passionate about by investing in property in a way that allows us to have fun at the same time, which is exactly what Gina and Marcus have been doing - investing in a place that they love so that they can ski several times a week, they can enjoy that mountain life throughout the summer as well, raise their kids in a great location with all of that outdoor lifestyle. That specifically may or may not appeal to you. It doesn't matter, but I think what is important is that we can create a life, we can create a business that is built around what we want to achieve, what is important to us, and what makes us happy.So hopefully you get some inspiration, whether it's about the service to accommodation side of the business, which includes some owned ski shalis as well as some rent-to-rent stuff, or just to get some creative juices flowing in your own mind about what a property business that works for you could look like. So I hope you enjoyed today's episode, I'm sure you will, and if you ever find yourself in Morse then be sure to check out Gina and Marcus at Reach 4 the Alps.========================Request your free copy of our Introduction to HMO Investing guide - Access here for free 📗 Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Medical Dr Tom Rourke is building a portfolio of large HMOs in a challenging Article 4 area

Today's guest, Tom Rourke, is a member of the IPI Mastermind. I have had the pleasure of getting to know him over the past six months. I cannot take any credit for his past success, and this isn't to brag about how we've been able to turn around his business overnight. It's really just to say I'm thrilled to get to surround myself with people like Tom who have achieved what he has achieved in a relatively short space of time, and I'm hoping that this interview today will give you some idea, some inspiration of what is possible in four or five years of dedicated investing, but alongside a pretty busy and hectic career as well. And I love lots of things about what he's done. I love his approach to HMO investing, not being scared of article four areas, really embracing the idea of bigger is better and getting some phenomenal returns by looking at large HMO properties - up to 12 bedroom sizes, which a lot of people shy away from, but can be a real opportunity. I love his approach to how he's funded his deals and using his corporate background and connections to really build a niche for what he does and build a reputation as the go-to guy for anyone else that is in that industry. And he's really tapped into that and used that to his advantage, allowing him to raise capital to continue growing the portfolio. So I'm sure you will get a ton of insights and tips and hopefully a whack of inspiration from what he's been able to achieve and the stories that he shares throughout today's podcast.========================Join me for an upcoming Commercial to Residential Open Day -  Check out remaining tickets 🎟Connect on Instagram - instagram.com/insidepropertyinvestingConnect on LinkedIn -  linkedin.com/in/mstenhouse (tell me you're from the podcast)********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Lessons from sourcing 100 deals a year, with Justin Wilkins

Justin Wilkins is slowly and steadily building up his own portfolio, but his main focus is on his property sourcing business, where he’s on track to hit 100 deals this year.  Some of them he keeps for himself, some he quickly flips on without doing any work to them, and others he sources for his investor clients. Regardless of who ends up buying the deals he sources, they need to make sense financially, so to be able to do this volume is a real skill that I think we could all benefit from. And that’s exactly what we’re talking about today with Justin - what works best for him when it comes to sourcing deals at scale that we can apply to our own, probably more modest, deal sourcing targets. ********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

How I Built A Property Portfolio To Travel The World, with Jack Smith

Today’s interview is from a discussion I had recently with Jack Smith for his podcast, from the ground up.  I’ve been sharing a few of these podcasts recently where it’s someone else asking me the questions, and I wasn’t sure to begin with whether you’d find them valuable, but the feedback has been super positive as the spotlight is turned on me and my business, and how we built things to the stage they’re at now, which we don’t often share here when it’s me asking the questions. In this episode, Jack and I discuss the foundations of our portfolio, and how we focussed on HMOs to give Victoria and I the freedom to step away from our days jobs initially, and then more recently to step away from life in the UK to spend 4 years travelling. ===============================Join our exclusive mastermind group for experienced property investors looking to scale their businesses without the burnout – apply now at insidepropertyinvesting.com/mastermind and let's grow together!********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Why Failing To Hit His Goal Was the Best Thing for His Business, with Stuart Lordan

6 years ago, Stuart Lordan joined me on the podcast with plans to reach 100 HMO rooms within 12 months. Today he’s back to say that he failed to reach that goal, with about 80 rooms in the portfolio at the time of recording, but instead of pushing for growth at all costs to achieve those 100 rooms, he’s instead managed to build a stable business with solid financials, retain freedom and flexibility in his own life, and diversify into other areas as well.He’s learnt a lot along the way, but possibly no more important lesson than realising things don’t always go to plan, and that’s okay.  You can be a success despite your failures, in fact maybe only because of them.===============================Join our exclusive mastermind group for experienced property investors looking to scale their businesses without the burnout – apply now at insidepropertyinvesting.com/mastermind and let's grow together!********************Check out our content on your favourite platforms:Website: InsidePropertyInvesting.comInstagram: @InsidePropertyInvestingYoutube: Inside Property Investing

Building a HUGE portfolio by focussing on just 2 postcodes, with Michael Lawson

Michael Lawson is a Dubai based investor who rapidly scaled his portfolio whilst holding down a successful career and living about 3,000 miles away - and when I say rapidly, I’m talking to the tune of 15+ new purchases per year. How does he do this?  Well it’s a family business, and he has his mum back on the ground looking after more of the customer facing tasks while he focuses on the business growth and strategy; he keeps his attention on just two postcodes in Fife that he knows like the back of his hand - an approach I’ve always favoured rather than trying to cast your net too wide; and he’s kept things as simple as possible, with a portfolio made up predominantly of single lets. One of the reasons I love hosting this podcast is the constant reminder that there are so many different ways to make a successful career from property, and Michael gives us yet another perspective on how things can be done, so I’m sure you’ll get a ton of value from our discussion today. He also let slip after we stopped recording that he’s getting married next week, which will be before this podcast airs, so Michael, by the time you’re listening to this you’ll be a married man and I just want to wish you a huge congratulations and all the best to you and your new wife.  Now, let’s get into the show. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

3 years to retire from corporate life - our HMO story

This week, I’m sharing our story of how we got into property full time - thanks to HMOs. During the episode, I share our background before we discovered HMOs, including our corporate jobs, early flips, and our limited single let experience, as well as the progress we've made with HMOs - from our first accidental 3 bedroom HMO in 2009 to our first intentional HMO in 2015, and beyond.I talk about the time required to create career replacing income from HMOs, and tackle the question of funding.

Our biggest lessons when moving from residential to commercial conversions

This is possibly my most awkward interview to date, because Jerry is a true expert when it comes to commercial property investing and I spent the whole time trying to think of answers beyond ‘we just make it up as we go along’. Jerry Alexander is the host of the Commercial Property Investor podcast and invited me on to talk about our own experiences in the world of commercial property investing.  I could talk all day about commercial to residential conversions, and in fact if you’re interested in listening to me talk all day about them then on of our commercial to residential Open days would be the perfect investment for you, but in this case Jerry’s real interest is in commercial property retained as commercial property, which I am a novice in.But it’s an interesting discussion, particularly around how we moved from residential projects into commercial conversions, and some lessons I’ve learnt along the way, so I hope you enjoy, and if you feel so inclined, I’d be grateful if you could take a moment to leave a review for the show to help more aspiring investors discover it.  ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Behind the scenes of this first time HMO investment, with Courtney Bryan

I think you’re going to love today’s episode as I chat with Courtney Bryan about his investment story so far, specifically looking at the details of his first HMO - what worked well, what didn’t go to plan, how he selected his investment area, sourced the deal, and so much more, including all the numbers of that first project. Courtney mentions our Inside HMO Investing programme a couple of times throughout the interview, and I’m thrilled it’s had such a positive impact on his confidence to get out there and invest, but actually most of our guests these days we’ve worked with in the past, whether it’s through our HMO programme, our Open Days or our raising private finance programme. Some of our recent guests like Nikki Smith, Martin & Lauren Plummer, Howard Giblin, Jess Leader, and Kim Opszala have all invested in support and education with IPI, and as I said to Courtney after recording this, it’s so fulfilling 7 or 8 years after starting this podcast to be part of all of their stories, and I hope one day I can be part of yours as well.  Maybe even, I’ll get to discuss it with you as a guest on the podcast. But for today, let’s see what we can learn from Courtney and his own investing story. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

You can build a property portfolio AND travel the world, with Kim Opszala

Since last being on the podcast in 2020, Kim’s business and life have changed dramatically.  From a property perspective, she’s switched her focus from R2R to buying HMOs, giving her much more security for the longer term by actually owning the assets that she’s renting out, although as you’ll hear during the interview, she still obviously has a soft spot for rent to rent and the opportunities that model created for her in the early days. But more excitingly, at least from my perspective, is the change to her living arrangements, as she recently converted a van into a camper and splits her time between life in the UK and life on the road, travelling with her family whilst continuing to run and grow her property business. And as a fellow travel junkie, I spent more than a little time asking her about how this is working out as well. A great follow up interview with Kim that I’m sure you’ll enjoy, so let’s get started. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Can property sourcing really become a sustainable business? With Jack Smith

Today, I’m joined by Jack Smith, and I think you’re going to enjoy this episode. Jack’s an investor who started off flipping houses, after spending time spinning his wheels and getting distracted by all the different investment options that were available to him.  He made a £30,000 profit on his first deal, and quickly moved on to deals 2 and 3, but during his search for good projects, he realised he had a knack for finding off-market deals that were valuable to other people. His sourcing business was born, and that quickly surpassed his investment income, becoming more or less his full time focus ever since. During the interview we talk about both the flipping model and his sourcing business, as well as the value of his YouTube channel in helping him scale, and why this platform is a huge opportunity compared to most social media platforms. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Jumping straight into the deep end of blocks of flats, with Lauren & Martin Plummer

Lauren and Martin Plummer did pretty much everything with their first deal that the mainstream advice tells you not to do.  In their defence, they’d built up some experience from renovating their own home a couple of times before they thought seriously about investing, but as far as first deals go this, was a biggie - the conversion of a period property into 5 flats, including a loft conversion which, as we discuss during the interview, may or may not have been worthwhile. But despite plenty of lessons learnt along the way, and dare I say a few mistakes, ultimately the project was a success with all 5 flats renting within 12 hours of viewings!  And it certainly didn’t dampen their spirits, as the next project they are purchasing is another conversion, this time of a listed building into 4 flats that they intend to use as holiday lets.  ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Why chasing unicorns is the wrong strategy, with Jess Leader

Unicorns really do exist, although the point of today’s interview with Jess Leader is that whilst we can occasionally find those projects that give us all of our money back out, they’re usually pretty rare and we certainly don’t need to focus on them in order to build a life changing income from property. Jess had completed 7 projects before she finally caught a unicorn on her 8th, and today she gets into the details of what her own investing story has been like. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, so let’s get started. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Creating a safety net for his wife became a full time passion, with Lawrence Khen

Sometimes, life doesn't go to plan! Lawrence got first hand experience of this when he was diagnosed with Lime disease after years of major health issues. Despite barely being able to get out of bed or walk up a flight of stairs, he focussed first of all on his recovery with the help of functional medicine and a lifestyle overhaul that now sees him spending a 3rd of his time looking after his health and wellbeing, and then on his financial future, ensuring his wife would continue to have an income should the worst happen to him.  It started with a small portfolio of single lets, that’s quickly grown over the past 4 years to a larger portfolio of single lets, several multi-unit block purchases, and a few serviced accommodation units, some of which he feels are worth the effort, and some of which aren’t. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Handling burnout and how to move past it

This is a quick intro to a relatively long podcast I recorded just before Christmas with Paul Lanfear. For a change, it was Paul asking me the questions for his own podcast, The Property & Investor Podcast, with a particular focus on burnout, how to cope with it and how to come back from. It’s something we’ll all experience at some point as we try to grow our business, and I think it’s important to shine light on some of these less instagrammable moments that we experience so that if you’re feeling burnt out you know that you’re not alone.  If you enjoy the discussion, let me know with a quick review so that even more people can find it, and you can check out more conversations with Paul on his own podcast as well. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

From 30+ years in construction to finally building your own portfolio, with Nikki Smith

Nikki and her husband Mark have got over 35 years experience in the property world through their construction business, creating bespoke homes for their clients. But in 2020 during the first lockdown they decided it was time to put their experience of developing properties for other people to better use for themselves, and started to build their own recurring income by investing in their own deals. They joined our Inside HMO Investing programme, and since then they’ve moved quickly, acquiring a portfolio of single lets, HMOs and serviced accommodation.  In today’s episode, Nikki shares exactly what they’ve been up to over the last couple of  years, including what’s worked for them and what has been more of a struggle. So I hope you enjoy, I hope you get inspired, and if I can be so cheeky, I hope you take 2 seconds to leave us a review wherever you’re listening to this today.  They make a huge difference to me in terms of helping new aspiring investors find the show, so if the podcast has been in anyway helpful to you, I’d love for you to pay it forward. I really appreciate it. Now let’s get into the show - oh and by the way, if the audio sounds a little funky, I was recording this in my car in December during that really cold spell on my headphones microphone, so there you go.===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

From accidental HMOs to career replacing income, with Lee Chaloner

Today’s guest is Lee Chaloner, one half of passive.property if you’re on the Instagrams. Along with his wife Ceri, they’ve been building a portfolio since 2019 in and around Wrexham in North Wales.  I’ve got a lot of admiration for these guys - they’ve taken a long term view to building their property income, and only recently started to think about scaling back their day jobs as their business gets to a point where it can sustain them and still allow them to grow. They started off flipping a house to raise additional capital, before directing most of their attention to HMOs, with direct to vendor deals and buying existing but run down HMOs where they could see an opportunity to add value; and they’ve recently added serviced accommodation to the mix.

3 projects in their first 2 years, with Candice & Dan

Candice & Dan, are still pretty new to the property world, but with a couple of deals under their belts their on the right path and by the sounds of it, doing all the right things.  It was great to hear about their progress so far and some of the decisions they’ve made - like why they started out investing in flats even though they don’t think they’re the best long term investment; how they’re balancing the time requirements of investing along with days jobs, and how they made the ultimate sacrifice in their relationship in order to push their business forward faster than they would otherwise have been able to do. Today’s episode will hopefully give you a ton of inspiration and show you that whilst property isn’t the key to overnight success, you can still cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. So let’s jump in to the interview. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Our (22 unit) project pipeline for the next 12 months

As we transition back to the UK for winter, back into our winter schedule, and back into a regular podcast calendar, I thought it was long overdue to provide an update on our own projects.   There are a few specific aspects I want to call out on certain projects in more detail, like how we saved almost £40,000 with our approach to a planning application on IPI Carrwood; and why we’ve been forced to go from plan A to plan C on IPI Washway, so I’ll do that in upcoming episodes, but for today I just want to bring you up to speed on exactly what we’re working on right now and how we see these projects progressing over the coming months. Hopefully there’ll be at least a couple of insights that are relevant to what you’re working on right now as well, so let’s get started. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

3 reasons most property investors don't achieve their goals, with Jackie Tomes

Today I’m delighted to be talking with Jackie Tomes - a favourite of mine in the property world who has built an amazing portfolio and property business along with husband David. I’m such a fan of hers for a couple of reasons:She is laser focussed on creating a business that works for her, meaning she does exactly what she’s passionate about and outsources everything else; She has created a business that does exactly what it’s supposed to - allow her to live her dream life, which in this case is an almost endless travel itinerary; Her business isn’t overcomplicated, full of buzzwords, or always chasing the latest trend.  They buy blocks of flats in and around Margate, and that’s pretty much it. In today’s episode we’re discussing the 3 major reasons that most property investors actually fail to ever get to live their dream life, and what Jackie thinks you can do to make sure you do hit your goals. I had a lot of fun talking through these ideas with her, and I hope you enjoy the discussion as well. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

365: Scaling to 30 deals a year with Saif Derzi

Today I’m delighted to welcome Saif Derzi back to the show.  He’s been a guest a couple of times now, and since it’s been a while since we released an episode I wanted to start with an update on what’s working for a couple of my favourite investors in the industry.  This week I’m talking to Saif, and next week I’ll be welcoming Jackie Tomes back to the podcast, before hopefully settling into a more traditional routine as we transition back to like in the UK for winter. Anyway, Saif operates at a volume I don’t see many other people even attempting, with over 140 purchases under his belt since he started investing back in 2017.  The numbers don’t even really make sense to me - that’s about 30 per year, and whilst they’ve not all been purchases for himself, it’s a crazy success story. Today we’re looking at the systems and processes that allow his business to operate at this scale, as well as where his focus is currently in the industry. ===============================Starting on April 13th and running through until the end of the month I’m hosting a free series of trainings that will help you understand if HMO investing is the right option for you, and if it is, how to identify the perfect investment area to start growing your portfolio.

Whilst we’re not actively sourcing any deals at the moment - nothing to do with the market, but more from a desire to focus our energy on progressing our current projects as quickly as possible - I know a lot of our listeners, and maybe you as well, are looking to find your next deal in the near future, and as the market continues to evolve, there will be some good opportunities to be had.  In fact I first mentioned these 3 types of deals to follow up on back at the start of the year, but the circumstances that lead to these opportunities have only strengthened so I wanted to dig into them in a little more detail today, and let this serve as a reminder in case you’re struggling with your sourcing activities and forgot about these potential sources that I shared 8 months ago.  ********* Ready to shift from chaos to calm in your property business?

363: 3 is the Magic Number for Personal Productivity

Today’s episode was inspired by a masterclass I’m preparing for some of our IPI students, called personal productivity for property investors.

In today’s episode I’m talking about introducing private finance to your business - why it’s such an important and lucrative funding option for the growth of your business if you are an experienced investor, as well as how to understand whether or not you’re ready for investor finance, and how you can start to calculate the investment goals that would have a meaningful impact for you.

357: These 7 things are killing your projects

I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can improve efficiency within our business - whether that’s how we run our renovation projects or how we create a piece of content like a podcast.  So I’ve been racking my brain to think of things we’ve introduced or are trying to introduce to make sure our projects run as smoothly as possible, and that’s what I’m sharing today.  Instead of giving you a whole bunch of things you need to start doing though, instead I’m focussing on things that you can stop doing. It’s much easier to stop doing something that’s having a negative impact than it is to introduce 7 new habits into your life. ********* Join the waitlist for Project Management Mastery - https://insidepropertyinvesting.com/pmm********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

352: Discovering a £600/month addition to our latest HMO project

In today's episode I'm sharing our second update from IPI Washway, one of our own projects to convert an office building into a 7 bedroom HMO in an article 4 area.  I'm joined again by Will who's our new project manager. He started working for us officially about 3 months ago with no previous property experience, so whilst we've thrown him in at the deep end, what we're hoping to show with this series is that anyone, including you, can get involved in great projects like this without a ton of past experience. Sure, you might need some support and guidance along the way like Will's getting from me, but that's exactly what our Inside HMO Investing programme offers.   Last month in the first episode of the IPI Washway series, Will and I discussed the purchase process for this building, finding it listed in an upcoming auction and how we secured it before anyone else got a chance to bid. We also looked at the deal analysis we went through to understand if the numbers made sense, and we started to discuss the planning process as well, particularly around what you need to consider if you're looking to invest in an article 4 area where the usual permitted development rights are removed.   This month, we're looking at the next stages of the project and specifically what Will's been focussing on, including the strip out of the building, what that uncovered and why we like to get it done as soon as possible after the purchase completes; the delays we've experienced so far with the planning application, in part due to changes we made to our original plans that will increase the profitability of the house, and in part due to objections from neighbours; and finally the start of the tender process including what we're overlapping with the planning application to condense the overall programme, and what Will's doing to ensure the quotes we get from contractors are as accurate as possible.   If all of this talk about permitted development, article 4 directives and deal analysis is leaving you scratching your head then don’t worry, we've got a comprehensive free introduction to HMO investing that brings you up to speed on all of the important HMO terminology, as well as the different types of HMO projects you might consider and some project case studies to show you what's possible with this strategy.

351: 5 steps to your most productive 90 days ever

Today's episode should have been released a few weeks ago but life has a habit of getting in the way when you least expect it, but it's a subject close to my heart so I wanted to make sure we shared it, even if it was later than expected. A few weeks ago two of our team came to visit us in Ibiza so we could spend some time planning out our next 90 days in the business. It's something we do religiously every quarter and I'd go as far as to say it's been one of the most impactful processes we've introduced over the years, so today I'm sharing the 5 steps you'll want to work through to introduce 90 day goals to your own business, as well as some tips to make them as effective as possible, and what our own key focus areas are for this quarter. So if you currently feel overwhelmed with everything on your to do list, you never know what you should be focussing on, or you feel busy all the time but don't seem to get any closer to your goals, this is the episode for you.  ********* Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free financial freedom resource - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/goals********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

Today, I am delighted to be joined by Chris and Cat, a couple we have known for a few years. Originally from London, they moved up to Manchester for work about eight years ago and started investing in property and HMO investing about four years ago. In that time, they've built up a portfolio of 50 rooms in HMOs and recently, Cat made the decision to step away from the day job to focus full-time on property while Chris continues to climb the corporate ladder.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Lucy and Jake from Innova Property. They are based in Bristol and despite initially looking around at some cheaper locations to invest, they decided that being close to home was important. So, with their expertise and their preference for being involved in the renovation process, they were able to make investing work on their doorstep in what is traditionally viewed as an expensive market to get a foot on the ladder. In today's interview, we talk about that, their funding plan and strategy for sustainable growth to keep growing a portfolio, despite starting out without an abundance of their own money. We talk about them balancing their property investing career and ambitions, alongside their full-time day jobs. Also, we talk about how they are able to work together as a couple more effectively now than when they first started.

Today, I'm delighted to be joined by Manoj Varsani, a part-time property investor and a technology expert who wanted to put his skills to use and create more efficiency in his portfolio and move away from all the spreadsheets and paper notes that he was relying on to manage everything. Now, this is where the idea for Hammock came from, the property finance platform you've been hearing about for the past few months as one of our major podcast sponsors. I wanted to get Manoj on the show to hear more about his own portfolio and how he got started with investing. But also how and why he decided to build another business alongside the property portfolio, based on his own frustrations and drive to simplify the processes. I hope, as always, that you get some ideas for your own property investing, but also a glimpse into how a secondary business can become a complimentary, or even main, income stream for you if you're passionate enough about solving a problem that others are facing as well. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/  ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

But things didn't exactly go to plan and a chance meeting with an old colleague who was also investing in property, led him on a path to create Cornerstone Partnership, a social enterprise that is trying to make an impact on the housing crisis with social housing. In fact, it is making an impact on the housing crisis in the UK by following the Aldi model, one of the companies that Dean worked at before he ventured into the world of property- high quality and high volume at low cost. Without a doubt, this is one of the most interesting conversations that I've had on the podcast for a while and whether you're just starting out or a seasoned developer, there are lessons in here that you can take and apply to your own business. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/  ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

343: David Lenton on building an unencumbered portfolio and leveraging growth

Today, I am delighted to be joined by David Lenton, the founder of an SEO and digital marketing agency who started looking at property initially in 2018 as a place to protect and diversify his wealth. He started out by building up an unencumbered portfolio, thinking that when his capital ran out, he would stop with the property. But, you know how the story goes and, by that point, he'd developed a real interest in the industry, finding that his knowledge of the property business grew with every new deal he made and every new contact too. Now, he's looking to leverage the existing portfolio to fund continued growth and during the interview, we talk about his views on things like sourcing in the current climate, the serviced accommodation market now and in the future, and how he plans to scale up the portfolio while continuing to run his marketing business. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/  ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

342: Mary and Andrew Osman on HMO investing, design-led properties and overcoming obstacles

Today I'm delighted to be joined by Andrew and Mary - qualified architects with over 20 years of combined experience working on projects in the UK and in Australia. Now, they spend most of their time focused on their investments in Leeds and their business Elite Dwellings - primarily HMOs, but starting to work on larger residential conversions and developments as well. During the interview, they share the details of how they got started with their own portfolio when a major roadblock was put in their way, and why they believe their focus on design not only adds value but also saves them money. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

341: Richard Nicholls on the ins and outs of selling HMOs and what makes a good one

Today I'm delighted to be joined by Richard Nicholls, founder of The Property Advantage which as far as I can tell is the larger specialist HMO brokerage in the UK, helping landlords by selling HMOs they no longer want, and investors buy ready-made income-producing assets. Richard's approach is to view every HMO the company sells, so with hundreds of transactions completed he's probably got a better insight into what makes a good HMO, and as importantly, what makes a bad one than virtually anyone else in the UK.  So why's he on the show today? Well, his business partner Jessica contacted me a few weeks ago and we had a good chat about the HMO industry and their unique insights into it. I explained that we were opening our Inside HMO Investing Programme at the end of March and that I'd love to present his story to show an alternative exit route for HMO landlords, as well as his general views on what is and isn't working with the properties he views and the HMO market generally. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

340: Dave So on why he opted for the student HMO strategy and building a huge portfolio

Today, I'm delighted to be joined by Dave So, probably the most humble investor I've ever come across but do not let his laid-back approach fool you. Since buying his first student HMO in 2013 he's gone on to buy and renovate over 300 rooms in his home city of Nottingham, adding to his own portfolio and on behalf of other landlords and investors. The crazy part of all of this is he did most of this whilst holding down a full-day corporate job as well, which he finally decided to step away from 12 months ago.  Along the way he's diversified his income by growing a letting agency business, he's employed several members of his family and close friends to scale the business, and he's been able to continue the portfolio growth despite being in a strict article 4 area. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

339: Sarah Watt on investing in Australia, moving to England and discovering HMOs, and how our HMO challenge helped

Today I'm delighted to be joined by Sarah Watt, one-half of Alt Street property along with her husband Andrew. This is our second episode as part of our 2021 HMO month where we're focussing on the strategy that allowed Victoria and I to leave the corporate world behind and talking to investors who have used HMOs to achieve similar results in their own lives. Sarah started investing in her early twenties in Sydney, Australia and continues investing to this day alongside her busy day job, albeit now in the slightly colder climate of Northampton.  Since joining our HMO challenge in 2019 she's added three HMOs to her portfolio, going against the conventional approach of major renovations allowing them to get properties up and running and income-producing in record time.  During today's interview, we talk about what drew them into the world of HMOs, the biggest challenges they've faced in growing their portfolio, and the numbers behind one of their typical HMO deals. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

338: How HMOs led to our freedom from corporate life

Today you're stuck with me I'm afraid as I'm digging deep into our own HMO story to share some insights into the investment strategy that helped us escape from the corporate world. We've obviously shared some details of our story before in our monthly updates, but never have we looked at the HMO aspect in isolation, and whilst we've expanded our focus in recent years, HMOs got pretty much all of our attention between me leaving my day job, and Victoria then being able to do the same several years later.  They are without any doubt in my mind the highest consistent income that can be achieved from residential rental property, and I know what you might be thinking, it's easy for us because some of the first deals we did were quite a while back when property was cheaper and competition was less intense, but towards the end of the episode you'll hear about our most recent HMO project which we completed this year, and we've got plans to do many more. So if you take one thing away from this, let it be that there are still phenomenal opportunities to invest in the HMO market. ********* Free Introduction to HMO Investing guide - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/introduction-to-hmos Free 5 Day Goal Setting Challenge - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/2021-goal-setting-challenge********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

337: Rosie and Allan Charles on breaking property rules, replacing income and the power of single-lets

Rosie and Allan Charles of Arch Investments – I'll be totally honest, I've spent the past two years thinking of them as Ark investments every time I see them on social media, thinking it was some abbreviation for architecture. But, of course, after asking the question I now know that it stands for Allan & Rosie Charles – but at least now you'll remember to look for them next time you're on Instagram. Anyway, getting back to what this phenomenal couple has achieved in a few short years… They started investing by breaking all the rules – sourcing deals hours away from home and focussing on the humble single let instead of being distracted by shiny objects and new-fangled strategies. It's clearly worked for them, replacing Rosie's income and allowing her to step into property full time whilst Allan focuses on the strategy for the business and making sure that all of his toys were constantly being tossed from his pram. You'll hear more in today's interview about how they've built a successful portfolio through consistent efforts and constantly putting themselves in challenging situations that they were forced to find solutions to, as well as the numbers behind their best and worst deals, how they split the responsibility of their business, and why investing in education gave them the accountability they needed to succeed. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

Today, I'm delighted to be joined by Tex Jones, the MD of Jones Real Estate Property Group who develop HMOs and flats in south east London using a combination of their own funds and private equity. I met Tex through Clubhouse and we've been hosting a room together for the past few weeks which has given me a chance to get to know him more and develop a real admiration for the hard work he's put into his business at every stage.

Today, I’m delighted to be joined by Rick Braithwaite, a successful developer running his own property development business alongside his nationwide EPC business. His focus is fairly mixed but typically now, he’s looking for commercial to residential conversions that will generate chunks of cash that he can then reinvest those profits into building his portfolio. His properties have gradually spread across the UK, completing properties in Lancashire, Manchester, London and, most recently, Yorkshire. But, despite being happy to maintain and manage those properties that he’s acquired in the past, typically now he’s focusing on his new developments closer to home.

331: Bringing construction and investment together for a winning combination with Chris Shaw and Alex Riddick

Today, I’m delighted to sit down with two people in the industry that I really admire. Chris Shaw, an almost high-school dropout who shunned the family construction business to pursue a career in broadcast media, before coming back to this world during the 2008 recession and ultimately going onto build one of the largest construction companies in the north west.  The second voice you’re going to hear is Alex Riddick. Alex is an electrician by trade who spotted the potential for student accommodation while working as a contractor on other people’s projects. He then went onto buy his first HMO in 2016 and, as most trades tend to do, he got very hands on with that first project. Since then, he has systemised his business and has built an enviable portfolio with some of the highest standard student properties in Liverpool.  The real beauty of their story comes when the pair met, and by bringing their collective experience and complementary skills together, they are braced for huge growth in both sides of the business, the construction side and the investment portfolio side. It’s early days for them working together as a team and only time will tell how this story ends, but from my perspective, they’ve got a lot of value to share and I’m sure you will enjoy the discussion as well.  ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/ ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

324: Danny Farrow and Hein Lingenfelder prove that teamwork really does make the dream work, with their multimillion-pound property portfolio

Today I'm delighted to welcome Danny Farrow and Hein Lingenfelder, friends for almost a decade, who brought together their varied corporate backgrounds and limited property experience three years ago to create The Momentum Investment Group, and go on to achieve far more together than they would have done apart.    To give you an example of how this played out, before they started working together Danny’s route to financial freedom through property was saving up deposits to buy a portfolio of single lets at a rate of one per year. That sounds familiar to me, a lot of people are struggling trying to do the same thing, and he estimated it would take him another 15 years in order to step away from the day job.   But, since they’ve started working together, they’ve created a pipeline of around 50 build to let units across five sites in only three years, with a minimum return on GDV of 25%, but getting far in excess of that with their current light industrial to residential conversions. They really show that you don’t need decades of experience before stepping into larger projects and during the interview we discuss a lot of detail around the type of projects they focus on, exactly how they create value in each of their projects and the numbers behind several of their deals as well. It was an absolute pleasure talking to both of them and I know you’ll enjoy it!   ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources  ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

323: How getting creative with mixed-use properties has helped Kath Gibb to create a £10,000 p/m rental income in only 2 years

Today I’m delighted to be joined by Kath Gibb, an investor who has put her and her husbands previous business experience towards a focus on commercial to residential conversions that have enabled them to create a monthly rental income in excess of £10,000 in only 2 years. Their approach is one that I find fascinating, and her detailed breakdown on the individual deals that they’ve worked on gives you a real insight into both the ups and the downs of this strategy. It’s either going to make you sit up and think “Yes, that’s exactly what I want to be working on!”, or it will rule out commercial conversions for you, as with the increased upside also comes increased risk and stress. Whichever side of the fence you’re on by the end of the interview, I’m sure that you’ll agree that it’s yet another great example of how to profit from property investing and I’m sure it will give you inspiration and ideas to apply to your own business.      ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

322: Commercial conversions are gaining momentum for Maria Thomson and her Scottish property portfolio

Maria Thomson, founder of London Edinburgh Holdings and a passionate property investor focussed on commercial to residential conversions across Scotland.  During the interview we look at her varied career, what drove her away from her successful job as a solicitor into the world of property, and how her approach to commercial to residential conversions shows that there is opportunity in any location to make money from property, not just down south. I need to apologise for the weird audio in the first 10 minutes - skype was having some issues during our recording, but the content from Maria is well worth the listen and her passion is infectious. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

321: How Jerry Alexander generates over £1million p/a through his unique commercial property strategy

Today I’m delighted to be joined by Jerry Alexander, a fellow Scot investing in commercial property but in a much more active way than the usual approach, enabling it to compete with more creative residential strategies from a profitability perspective.   It’s an approach that Jerry has been refining since he bought his first commercial unit in 2004, and he’s now got it down to a pretty fine art. It’s all about adding value to property by increasing the rental income, as commercial property valuations are typically based on a multiple of the rent. This allows him to release much of his initial investment from each deal, ready to move on to the next. It’s not dissimilar to the common buy, refurbish, recycle residential model, but the focus on commercial has many advantages. He’s built an enviable portfolio with this strategy, generating over one million pounds per year in rental income. I’m confident you’ll get plenty of inspiration from this episode, and probably a couple of ideas for your own investing too.  ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

320: Inside our '12 week year' planning and goal setting process

Today we are going into detail on our quarterly goal setting process looking at why 12 week sprints are the most effective time period to focus on, what some of our focus areas were from the last 3 months and how successful or not we were in hitting them, and how the feedback from that helps us shape not only the next quarter but also how we approach the goal setting itself. We look at our property goals as well as some of our business goals, and reference our recent podcast with Mike Clay a lot so make sure you check that out as well if this is an area that interests you. To give you fair warning, there is also a lot of me getting angry at boats that fly past us and send the microphone flying, and a few mentions of instagram as well as we recorded this as an instagram live at the same time as recording the podcast. Ultimately though I hope you get a lot of value from it, and I've said numerous times in the past I really think we owe a lot of our own success to regularly reviewing our vision, our goals and our strategy so if it's something you already buy into then there might be a few tips for you, and if you don't really give much attention to goal setting then listen with an open mind and we might be able to persuade you to reconsider. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

319: Introducing Remi Coghiel – the rebel wolf of property

Today I’m delighted to be joined by Remi Coghiel, an investor who started by learning a trade and working his way up the property ladder. But despite sharing some highlights of his career so far, this episode feels like a little bit more than that: you will tell straight away that Remi has a different perspective on a lot of things, and he isn’t afraid to go against the grain. We talk about the sacrifice necessary to get started in property, whether that’s sweat equity put into early projects or cutting back on material perks short-term in favour of achieving bigger goals in the longer term. He’s definitely one to watch, and I’m confident that he’s got a fascinating career ahead of him. But today, we’re just getting to know the backstory of the man behind the Wolf of Renovations. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

315: How Rent to Rent allowed Kim Opszala to build a high cash flow property business with the flexibility and freedom she needed

Today I’m delighted to welcome Kim Opszala to the show, a solicitor with years of experience dealing with mergers and acquisitions who realised that success in the corporate world actually isn’t the be all and end all when the cost of that success is long hours, high stress, physical health issues and never seeing your partner. I think we can all relate to at least some of that. Kim decided to start investing in property to give her more choice in her life and, after a few short years, has built an income from a mix of acquisitions, rent to rent deals and lease options, allowing her to leave the rat race behind but continue to practice law as a choice, as a consultant, picking the jobs and the hours to suit her. It’s a really inspiring story and I’m sure you’ll take a lot of value from it. ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

314: How Charlene Turkington became an accidental property flipping pro – and you can too.

Today I'm delighted to welcome Charlene Turkington to the show, who claims to be our first guest from Northern Ireland – and with my terrible memory, I'm certainly in no position to dispute her claim! She started investing at a young age in Belfast, was hit hard by the 2008 recession, and then made a fresh start flipping houses in a small Yorkshire town.  After completing 14 flips, she started to hold on to some of them and grow her buy to let portfolio, as well as embark upon an amazing new build back in Northern Ireland that will become their family home.   A lot of Charlene's approach is the perfect model for people interested in flipping houses: a strategy we don't discuss anywhere near as much as I'd like on the show. So hopefully for those of you looking to do something similar either as your main strategy, or to raise your investment pot for further buy and hold deals, you'll find a lot of great insight and information in today's show.  ********* Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Access our free resources - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

Today I’m delighted to be joined by Mike Clay, a property investor living and investing in Norwich, who realised after reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad on a beach three years ago, that there was a better way to the twenty years he’d spent climbing the corporate ladder.

And also, how he was able to build up a big enough portfolio in only three years to take the leap into full time property investing. Mike is already scheduled to come back on the show in a few weeks to talk through his process for creating your vision, translating it into a strategy and goals and, most importantly, actually executing it.

As with Ben & Jules, our guests last week, Clair has achieved a huge amount in just a couple of years, recently hitting her goal of creating 5 HMOs over the past 24 months.  After a bit of a false start and some uncertainty with exactly where she should be investing, Clair discovered she didn't need to follow the crowd to Manchester where she'd first attempted to grow her portfolio.  Instead, she focussed on areas closer to home and as well as making her life a lot easier, she's discovered a great local niche where her properties are in huge demand.  We often talk about mini-HMOs generating £600-800 monthly profit, but Clair's latest 4 bedroom HMO is generating in excess of £1,000 every month, in a location many before her had dismissed as unprofitable and low value.  It really goes to show what the right area analysis can do for your business. There are many great insights like this in today's episode so I'm sure it'll open your eyes to the potential of HMO investing.    ********* Register for our final live HMO Masterclass - http://insidepropertyinvesting.com/masterclass Find out more about Inside HMO Investing - http://insidepropertyinvesting.com/hmo********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

298: 18 months to create a £3k income with Ben & Julia Nice

Today we've got our first HMO month interview with the husband and wife team, Ben & Julia, from fortunice property.  I'm delighted to have them on the show because they're an amazing example of the impact property can have on your life in a short space of time. In 18 months they were able to create a £3,000 monthly income enabling Jules to leave the corporate world behind and focus on raising her family, and now as they've progressed from small HMOs to larger ones, they're generating in excess of £1,000 per project. Ben is still working in a corporate job he enjoys, but Jules is on the brink of taking some time off as they prepare to have their second child, but the real beauty is their income will continue whilst she focusses on family life due to the recurring revenue from their portfolio. ********* Register for our free HMO Masterclass: http://insidepropertyinvesting.com/masterclass********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

297: Are HMOs still a good investment in 2020?

We're starting off the year by devoting the podcast to HMOs for the month of January - kind of like shark week on the discovery channel but much more exciting, we'll be spending the next couple of episodes looking at the HMO strategy in the current climate. Today's episode specifically asks the big question of whether they're still a good investment option in 2020 and beyond. I'll let you in on a little secret, we 100% think they are, but we're going to look at some of the pros and cons, how the market is changing, and how our own approach is changing to ensure that we remain competitive.  If you're thinking about investing in HMOs this year, or have been trying to already but just not been able to get if off the ground, this make sure you stick around over the next few weeks and hopefully we can get you started on the right foot! --------------------------------------- Join our free Goal setting challenge: https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/5daychallenge Download our free Introduction to HMO Guide: https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/resources/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

296: How we used goal setting to map out our dream life and sharing the exact process with you.

In this episode I thought it'd be fun to share some - 'fairly personal' details about our new goals and property plans for the next couple of years.  I'm going to break down the process Victoria and I have been through recently to create a new vision for our future, understand the financial targets we need to hit to make that vision a reality, and then break it down further to put a create a roadmap that tells us what we need to be doing in terms of the type and number of projects to get there.    I'm sharing this for two reasons - the first is that it's a genuine reflection of the process we go through pretty regularly to reassess our goals and make sure we're still working towards a vision that inspires us.  It's something we get asked about a lot, in terms of how we set goals and what our future plans are, so I though it'd be fun to go into the detail of latest goal setting session and tell you what we want to achieve and how we arrived at those plans.   The second reason is that we wanted to take it a step further and work with you to create your own vision, goals and roadmap for the next 3-5 years.  January seemed like the perfect time to do this, and especially this year as it's the start of a new decade, so we decided to run a free 5 day challenge this month where every day we share one simple but effective assignment that combined will create a meaningful roadmap for your own investing journey.   If you want to join us for free then the easiest way to register is to go to www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/5daychallenge and we'll send you all of the details. ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

295: Building a £1 million pound SA business in 18 months with James Mitchell

James Mitchell, a young family man with an entrepreneurial background. He decided he wanted to spend more time with his kids, picked serviced accommodation as his focus area with no real experience, and 18 months later has created a million pound company between his rent to SA units, his SA management company and his cleaning and maintenance business.    It was great to find out how James was able to pick up so many deals and grow his business so quickly, but my favourite parts of the discussion are his tips for generating more direct bookings and systemising his business to the extent it only takes him about an hour a day to run.   Read the show notes here. ------------------------------------- Find out more about our Community - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/ipicommunity/ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/  ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

He's relatively early in his own property career but is a great example of how property can work alongside a busy day job, how your relevant skills and experience can help you skip the early stages of property investing, and how finding the right partners can allow you to achieve more collectively than you'd be able to do on your own. ********* Find out more about our Community - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/ipicommunity/ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/ Full show notes available at https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/ben-keenan/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

285: 5 pieces of property investment advice you need to hear

Todays podcast is a little different to normal, and we welcome four property investors, all at different stages of their careers, but all with invaluable advice to share. It comes off the back of our most recent Instagram challenge #7daysofproperty, something we have run a few times now, but without doubt the most successful of which was a couple of weeks. One of the specific challenges was to share a piece of advice, and as I was scrolling through the days posts, some of them really stood out to me and I selected a few people and asked them to elaborate a bit more. We pulled the advice together into a video (and a podcast) and that’s what we are sharing today. It’s a relatively short episode, but hopefully you will all get something valuable from it. ********* Find out more about our Community - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/ipicommunity/ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Follow us on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

In this episode I talk about what I'd do if I was starting out again in property, with a focus on generating enough of an income in the next 5 years to leave behind a day job.

254: HMO Planning vs HMO Licensing - let's clear this up once and for all

There isn't a week that goes by without someone getting mixed up in a discussion between planning and licensing with HMOs. I get it, I was the same when I was starting out. But there's no need for this confusion to continue. They're totally different, but it's important that you understand that difference. First of all so that you come across as knowledgeable when discussing these things with your team and investors, and secondly (more importantly) so that you don't get yourself tied in knots or make any expensive mistakes as a result of applying the requirements of one to the application of another.  Today we address this once and for all, with an overview of both planning and licensing with regards to HMOs.  ********* Buy Inside HMO Investing at the Original Price until January 31st - https://insidepropertyinvesting.lpages.co/inside-hmo-investing-50-off-january/ Our Open Days & Education - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/education/ Our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Our Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

230: Why no property experience is often an advantage to fast growth developers, with Andy James and Sunjay Soni of Bauhaus Living

In todays Interview I sit down with the founders of Bauhaus Living, an East Midlands based development company. Andy and Sunjay come from the advertising industry and entered the world of property development 5 years ago with no experience, but that first chance project ignited a passion in them that has led to pretty impressive success building new residential blocks. In fact they attribute some of that success to not knowing much about property, meaning they can focus on building a business rather than trying to build walls. ********* Our Open Days & Education - https://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/education/ Our YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/insidepropertyinvesting Our Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/insidepropertyinvesting/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

I'll post the links to all of these on the shownotes page in case you haven't come across them before and want a proper introduction, but in a nutshell they're full time property investors focusing primarily on serviced accommodation.  Because they don't necessarily invest where they live, with a portfolio split between Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and London, they've had to focus on implementing systems from day 1 so they can operate their short term lets from a distance. That's exactly what we're going to be talking about today, diving into the details behind some of the systems they rely on most for managing from a distance, in a sort of follow up to our recent interview with Dale Smith talking all about his SA marketing processes.********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

Today we've got an interview I'm really excited about as we're going to focus on one of my favourite things - spending less time working instead of more!  About two years ago I had the real pleasure of interviewing Jackie Tomes for the first time, and as per our usual format we covered her own property story and how, at the time, she'd been able to build a property portfolio worth almost one and a half million with an annual rent roll of over £100k and a £40k net profit.  That in itself was a great story, and if you haven't come across Jackie before I'd suggest going back and listening to that, but today not only do I have the chance to catch up with Jackie but also to be joined by her husband David to discuss how their business has progressed in those two years, but more importantly how they've been able to create a business that works for them rather than the other way around.  ******************** If you're interested in HMO investing, check out our online Inside HMO Investing course to help you find, fund and renovate your first or next project. ********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

I was delighted to be joined on the podcast by Ian Pattison. This is a slightly unusual interview, as although Ian is a property investor based in Loughborough, he is also a Health & Safety Manager in the construction industry, typically working on large-scale commercial projects. At the same time, he also has his own investment background in the private residential sector, and the reason this interview is a little different, is that we’re going to focus on the area of CDM, a small part of the grander health & safety area, and discuss how it applies to residential developments.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Luke Spikes. Luke grew up moving house every 6 months or so by his property developer parents , but whilst he continued with a few projects of his own in his adult life, it was always secondary to his other business interests - growing 6 international technology start ups over the past 27 years, each employing between 50 and 200 people.  After selling the last one he promised that'd be his last business, until he picked up a property book and realised that this side passion could in fact be a real business as well. His focus is on Serviced Apartments and truly bespoke co-living across the south west, and with a project pipeline with a GDV in excess of £3 million, and a goal to get 60 rooms up and running within 12 months, this is just the start of what will be an amazing 7th chapter in Luke's business journey.

Marc is the first of our 2017 Property Goals guests to return for the mid-year review.  Back in January Marc was on the brink of leaving the corporate world behind after realising he'd rather be building his own portfolio than continue the day job as a commercial construction project manager, and with only a few months until the end of his notice period he had some serious work to do in order to replace his income before the pay checks stopped coming in.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Mike Howman.  Mike is business partner to Shaun Callacher, one of our very early guests from episode 14 and some of you may even remember that Mike joined us on a webinar a couple of years ago talking about lease options, one of his areas of expertise.  He's had a hugely successful property career over the past 6 years, entering the industry after losing his previous business during the recession.  Despite the financial and emotional strain that put on him and his family, he learnt some big lessons from the experience and started his property journey by surrounding himself with a great team, creating systems very early in his property business, and staying extremely focussed whilst the business was growing. He's now got two great property businesses that he's extremely proud of.  Mantra Homes which is building new homes across the north west with a project pipeline worth £50 million, and prosper by property which is his education platform for training and mentoring property investors.

180: Sarah brought herself back from £60,000 of debt by using her sales skills to grow an impressive rent to rent portfolio before helping other source their own deals

Today I am delighted to be joined by Sarah Poynton Ryan. Sarah spent 14 years honing her skills in sales and marketing after she landed her first accidental job in a sales role based on the fact she liked to talk a lot. In that time she built and sold her first business, but after hitting a stage in 2015 where she was £60,000 in debt with credit cards and loans, she knew something needed to change.   She'd always had a passion for property investing so started to educate herself and 2 months later secured her first rent to rent HMO. The leads started to flow in and she realised this was another potentially lucrative arm to her business, selling on the deals that didn't fit her own requirements, and since then both her rent to rent and deal sourcing businesses have blossomed.

155: Richard Little comes back to the show to discuss the important elements of successful deal appraisal

Many of you will remember Richard from episode 29 when he joined us with his son Brynley to talk about their property journey.  Richard has been investing in property for around 40 years now, and when I posted a question on facebook recently about appraising a development deal he offered to help. We've decided that this is an area a lot of people struggle with, so rather than using Richard's time to just help me with one deal, he kindly offered to share some of his expertise on the theory of development appraisal with the Inside Property Investing audience.  Don't forget to subscribe on iTunes so you don't miss another episode, and access our free Property Investors Toolkit at www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/toolkit   Full show notes available at http://www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/richardlittle/********************Are you interested in scaling your portfolio with the best strategy in the property world?

So far, he's bought over 60 HMOs for either himself or his investors, he's involved in numerous deals across virtually every strategy from single lets to commercial projects, and is just about to start some new build developments. To top it all off, he deservedly won Progressive Property's best newcomer last year.

Tracey is a property investor, manager, landlord and mentor who has been building her portfolio since 2007. She started investing in single lets whilst working full time as a project manager, a job that took her all over Europe and the long hours and stress of balancing this with her property investments eventually led to burnout and the diagnosis of a chronic illness. She made the decision that property was going to replace all of her income and in 2013 started her first business, Midlands Lets - a rent-to-rent style HMO business. She now also runs Right Housemate, another specialist HMO letting agency based in Leicester.

Hey Property Insiders, Mike Stenhouse here with another monthly update to wrap up everything that's been going on with my own investing over the past few weeks. In fact I've got a lot to cover today as this time last month I was enjoying my wedding day followed by a long break away from the office for my honeymoon. I've got some great content to share on how my own investments are progressing, some new deals that I'm working on, and as always, an exciting update on everything going on with the podcast as well! But none of that gets me as happy as being able to welcome back the undisputed king of property tax , Mr Simon Misiewicz of Optimise Accountant.

If you've been listening to the podcast for a while, you'll probably know that a lot of my inspiration for the format came from John Lee Dumas and Entrepreneur on Fire. What you might not know is that Justin's podcast, House Flipping HQ was what confirmed to me that property investment could engage an audience like very few other topics could, and it was on my long commutes listening to Justin and John that I decided to launch Inside Property Investing 18 months ago. If you haven't come across House Flipping HQ before, it focusses primarily on investing in the USA but is well worth checking out to see the scale at which some of our cousins across the pond are operating at. It's hosted by Justin, who himself has flipped over 500 houses and believes that the processes for building a 7 figure property business are actually pretty straightforward.

Martin has over 30 years of experience as a manager in the construction industry, and has been investing in his own buy to let portfolio for the last 10 years. His experience extends to working on projects in the V&A Museum, the British Museum, the Bank of England, and the Stock exchange. At first, he enjoyed the profits from his own portfolio rather than reinvesting them, but recently has realised the power of compounding his assets and is now focussing on growing his property business both for long term gains and short term cash flow. In addition, for the past 3 years he has been using his extensive construction expertise to help other investors with their refurbishment and development projects, often only being called in for assistance once something has gone wrong. He's trying to change this by getting involved earlier in projects either as a consultant or a full service project manager, breaking down the barriers between contractors and his clients.

Carl is perhaps best known for his career as a professional footballer, playing for a number of English teams over the course of 13 years. What's less well known is that throughout the same time period, he was quietly building up his own property portfolio before moving into property investment full time when he retired at 29 years old. He continued to build on his property success as well as venturing into the hospitality business by opening a number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs in Central London. His passion remains on the property side of investing though, and he's now been involved in over £25 million worth of property transactions. He's also the CEO of Elite Property Investments, building up several multi-million pound portfolios for his professional athlete friends and clients.

Anth is the second of our repeat guests taking part in our mini-series on goal setting throughout 2016. We're following the progress of him, Nick Leatherland, Dane Sampson and Marta & Lloyd Smith over the course of 12 months to see how their property journey's evolve over time. Anth's background is in civil engineering and commercial construction, where he's being working with his family business for over 15 years. He's always had a passion for residential development though, so it was no surprise to the rest of the family when he wanted to branch out into this sector as well. This show marks the half way point in the year. We're 6 months in and have 6 months still to go, so it's a great time to catch up with each of the investors and find out what they've been up to so far, what progress they've made towards their goals, and what their plans are for the next 6 months.

Nick is returning for a very good reason. Back at the start of the year he joined us to share his own property journey with us, talking about how he balanced his time between the navy and property investing, how we grew his portfolio with a focus on looking after the customers first, and how he was just starting to roll out his HMO management company. Whilst he wasn't technically one of the original investors to feature in our mini-series on goal setting, where we are following a group of property professionals through 2016 to track their progress towards some pretty massive goals, he was the last interview I recorded before I started the goals series and I'm so impressed with what he's been doing over the past 6 months that I really wanted him to be part of this, as a point of inspiration and motivation for us all.

123: Jeff Hancock is using his IT skills to sytemise his property investing meaning he only needs to work on it 1.5 hours per day - great news given he still loves his day job as well.

Jeff moved to the UK from Australia in 2010 to do a long distance rally to Mongolia for charity, driving through 13 countries and over 10,000 miles in only 28 days. That's a pretty bold move for anyone, so you might be a little surprised to hear that his day job at the time was working in IT Security and Infrastructure. He's always had an interest in the business side of things beyond his job role though, so thinking about working for himself was an obvious next step and when he discovered Simon Zutshi's stand at a property event he was hooked. 3 years, 9 JV partners, and several deals later he's here to talk to us about his property journey so far.

122: Lizzie Ridgway - 9 months as a Rent to Rent investor, 9 deals done and many more on the horizon!

Lizzie spent 15 years working in early education as a teacher and manager, as well as being a mother to 4 boys and 2 step-children. With a background like that, she's clearly someone who can operate under pressure, so it's no surprise she absolutely thrived when she made the decision to start her own rent to rent business. In just 9 months she's secured 9 rent to rent deals and has another one on the way, which is a massive achievement in itself, but she also loves the freedom property investing has given her, and the ability to return to her passion with this security and focus on improving the standards of early education both within schools and at home.
