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

4/13/2021
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...

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

4/6/2021
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...

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

3/29/2021
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...

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

3/22/2021
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...

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

3/15/2021
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,...

338: How HMOs led to our freedom from corporate life

3/8/2021
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...

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

3/1/2021
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...

2/22/2021
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. His approach to creating something that's sustainable and...

335: Shane Duff on scaling to property development quickly and being a fan of de-risking projects

2/15/2021
Today I'm delighted to be joined by Shane Duff, an ex-professional footballer, ex-teacher, and now successful property developer who played on what he learnt from years of sports coaching and teaching others to scale his own business and achieve what he'd set out to do in five years in a fraction of the time. He started off flipping houses, and after quitting his job with the support of his partner gave himself 12 months to make property his full time career. He's a big fan of de-risking...

334: Steven and Carolyn Sparks on working together as a couple, the merit in corporate experience and taking it slow

2/8/2021
Today I'm delighted to be joined by Steven and Carolyn Sparks, a property development couple who have a ton of stories to tell about their decades in the industry and a real passion for period commercial properties which they convert to residential and mixed-use developments. During the show, we talk about how their corporate pasts helped shape their current passion, how their love of historic buildings has led to some amazingly fulfilling as well as profitable projects, with their current...

Bonus: The Business of Property - Bringing in a business partner

2/5/2021
Today I'm sharing another bonus episode of the Business of Property recorded last week from a clubhouse room. I was joined again by Saif Derzi along with two of his business partners, as well as Jess, one of our newest team members to discuss all things related to bringing on a business partner rather than an employee and how we've all navigated that process, including questions about what to look for in a business partner, how to split the roles and responsibility, making sure you've got...

333: Property development as a successful side hustle with Rick Braithwaite

2/1/2021
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,...

Join us for a sneak peak behind the Clubhouse curtain as I'm joined by Saif Derzi and others to introduce the idea of running our property portfolios as a business, rather than falling into the trap of simply creating another job for ourselves. ********* 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/

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

1/18/2021
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...

As well as building their successful HMO portfolio they're more recently started investing in multi-units blocks to increase their portfolio growth and bring beautiful, affordable homes to the market.

329: So what did we actually achieve in 2020?

1/4/2021
Today we thought we'd start the year off with a review of what was probably the most interest year we've operated through as full time property investors. I imagine by now you're thoroughly fed up of predictions about the future of the market or top tips on how to survive a pandemic with the benefit of hindsight. You know by now that's not really our style, so this is just a warts and all review of our last 12 months, sharing some of the major numbers we achieved and how these compared to...

10/20/2020
We're about to complete on our latest purchase and have been assessing numerous options for it - single let, HMO, splitting it into flats, or flipping it. Each option has its own pros and cons, and we looked at the numbers for each option in a previous episode as well as the design layouts, but today we're revealing which option we finally settled on and why! We're also looking at where our Brewery project is up to, and how Covid has messed with out HMO refinance. ********* Find...

325: How Matt Baker’s Shared Living Survey will help change the face of HMO’s

9/23/2020
Today I'm delighted to be joined by Matt Baker, co-founder of Scott-Baker Properties and the creator of the Shared Living Survey: the first study, I’m aware of, of its kind carried out earlier this year with HMO tenants across England, to help us take the guesswork out of what’s important to them and equally, what’s not, as they live in our HMO’s. The full findings of the study are available to download for free below. Today we’re discussing some of the highlights from the survey, how we...
