ninja learning Apr 20, 2018

If you read my last blog post you’re probably wondering what those Ninja Investor Strategies I mentioned are:

  • Strategy 1: 50% Below Market Value (BMV) strategy

Could you be a Ninja Investor?

Getting into serviced accommodation

THE QUESTION

For the last six months I've been trying to find the route into the property sector known as Serviced Accommodation.

The first problem was finding the right property that ticked my boxes, as well as being 'fit for purpose'. Having found the elusive house, I went in pursuit of the pennies to pay for it.

Most local lenders seemed totally unable to comprehend the concept of SA....

Leverage your equity

strategic planning Mar 22, 2018

Most people who embark on property investment are not cash rich.  Usually they have successful careers or may have run a business and have built up substantial equity in their own home, but don’t have massive savings.

To get started in property newbie investors often decide to release some of the equity in their own property to put down deposits on others.  Property values are...

How to get your money back

ninja learning Mar 13, 2018

If you’ve been in property a while you’ll remember the balmy days of 100% mortgages and 24 hour remortgages.  Things are tougher today and property investors need to be innovative to continue to invest in property and not end up with your capital trapped in bricks and mortar.

ninja learning Feb 20, 2018

Many investors see the Estate Agent as the adversary – or at best a necessary evil.  After all, their client is the vendor, that’s where their commission comes from.  But the smart investor knows better.

Unless you’re good at building rapport with estate agents, you won’t have many deals to consider, but there are ways to get estate agents to take you...

Do your lenders love you?

ninja learning Feb 10, 2018

Many people aspire to become a full-time property investor, but I wonder if they’ve considered the adverse effect it has on their ability to raise a mortgage.  They might find it better to slow down and take their time reaching that pivotal moment when mortgages are less critical to their property investment.

bridging finance Jan 30, 2018

Most property investors grow their portfolio by:

  • Searching for suitable rental properties
  • Putting down a 25% deposit

  • Then waiting six months and remortgaging to get as much of their money as possible out for the next property purchase.

It works, it’s taught on training programmes, but it takes a long time to grow your portfolio – and...

Mortgages with No Early Redemption Penalty are dangerous

People say that a low-cost way to get your cash back out of a property purchase is to use the small group of Buy-to-Let lenders who offer mortgages that have no redemption penalty to finance the purchase.
