This week on The Property Podcast, Rob & Rob are answering your top 10 Brexit questions.

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been talking Brexit. Are we staying, are we going? Who knows!

In episode 312 we heard from some Hubbers who were determined to not let Brexit scupper their property investment plans, and Rob & Rob backed this up by sharing their thoughts on the current state of affairs.

Since then, we’ve been inundated with your Brexit questions and this week, Rob & Rob tackle them head on.

Tune in to find out:

  1. Will the market crash?

  2. Will prices go up or down?

  3. What effect will this have on owner/occupiers?

  4. How will Brexit affect the long term property market?

  5. What should I do next?

And In the news this week, we have a bit of positivity for once! The Halifax House Price Index shows a huge property price increase of 5.9% in February - adding more than £13,000 to the average house price in just one month! Rob D is a bit dubious about the report, so tune in to find out what he has to say.

In Hub Extra this week, The Robs are talking about something that you’ve possibly heard of before - and that’s Monzo.

Monzo is an online bank account that gives you instant spending notifications, so no more waiting for those pending transactions to appear on your statement. Do you have a Monzo account? Get in touch and let us know what you think of it or, if you end up signing up to it, let us know how you find it.

This week on Ask Rob & Rob we’ve got another two cracking property questions from listeners.

First up we’ve got Scott who is a first time investor looking to purchase a property in Sheffield. Sheffield is a great option but he’s also looking at properties in Doncaster as they’re slightly cheaper. Naturally Scott’s question is whether Doncaster will experience any capital growth.

The neighbouring city of Sheffield has been pegged as one of Rob & Robs hotspots for this year, but will Doncaster benefit from a knock on effect? With the amount of public and private investment being ploughed into the area, you may well think so.  

Listen as Rob B gives his opinion and reiterates the importance of fundamentals when investing in property. The Robs covered this last month so be sure to have a listen if you missed it.

Our next question comes from Adam. After listening to the episode on leveraging, Adam wants to know what would happen if his property decreased in value and he lost his initial 25% deposit (therefore having no equity in the property). Would he be tied into his current mortgage product and unable to switch to a better product?

Tune in to find out what the outcome is and what advice Rob D has for Adam...

Everyone has gone a bit Brexit mad this week, so Rob & Rob are here to discuss what’s going on, how they feel about it and what you should be doing.

If you tuned into The Property Podcast last week, you’ll have heard some of our Hubbers giving their views on Brexit. But today, it’s Rob & Robs turn to tell it like it is.

Before they dig in, it’s worth taking a look at the media hype we’re dealing with right now:  

UK property market at weakest since 2012 as Brexit takes toll

UK property market at its weakest for six years, says Rics

UK house prices take pre-Brexit hit, says Nationwide

Brexit gloom to hit housing market into 2019, says RICS

Birmingham and Manchester benefit from Brexit blues

UK house prices make surprise 5.9% rise in February, Halifax says

If you’re familiar with the 18-year property cycle (if not, you can learn more here) then you’ll know that we’re heading into the mid-cycle dip. And today The Robs will be sharing exactly where they think the market will head post-dip.

So, if you fancy a bit more Brexit madness - tune into this week’s Property Podcast. We promise, it’s a good one!

In the news this week, and sticking with the Brexit theme, the BBC have released an article explaining what the 7 possible outcomes would be if the government was to get an extension on Brexit. What would each potential scenario mean?

And whilst we’ve got you, make sure you sign up to become one of our Hubbers and receive our valuable (weekly) Hub Extra emails. Create your free account here.

On this week’s ask Rob & Rob we’ve got two very good questions that will definitely apply to you no matter where you are in your buy-to-let property investment journey.

Our first question comes from Spencer in Bath. Spencer is wanting to know if he should keep his off-plan purchase or get rid of it. Due to the build being severely delayed and his 30% deposit not being protected, a few concerns have been raised.

Rob B gives some insight on the potential reasons why a build might be delayed and offers some lessons to be learned for all investors, not just ones in similar situations.

He also demonstrates how off-plan property has the potential to be the most profitable type of investment. You can learn more about off-plan property on our course over at Property Hub University.

The second question comes from Adam who’s a new investor and has decided that yield is the most important factor to him. He’s wanting to know if a HMO for a first time investment purchase is a good idea.

So is a HMO as a first investment a good choice? Or should Adam stick to a single investment option and play it safe, sticking to the normal strategy?

Tune in to find out what advice Rob D has to offer...

This week on The Property Podcast we’re discussing a topic that everyone has an opinion on - and we’ve got opinions from multiple property investors. We’re talking Brexit!

We’ll be talking to Sarah, Iain and Steve who are all keen to share their thoughts on the current biggest political topic.

First up is Sarah, who has been refurbishing and flipping properties in Sheffield. She hates the ‘B’ word but it’s the uncertainty of it all that concerns her. She tells us how the Sheffield market is currently performing.

Next is Iain from the South East who has been dabbling in all kinds of property developments. He thinks that this is a prime time to be investing in property and is feeling pretty optimistic.

Lastly we have Steve. Steve has been working on vanilla buy-to-lets over the past five years. He’s a firm believer that if you’ve got the deposit sat in the bank now, you definitely should invest it. He bought his last buy to let property six months ago but wishes he’d held on a bit longer to get a potentially better deal.

Tune in to listen to this much debated Brexit topic and don’t miss next week where The Robs go hell for leather on what they think of it.

In the news this week there’s been a great little update for landlords as landlord checks are potentially due to be bannedas it’s been identified as a potential breach of human rights. It’s not in place just yet, so in the meantime you do still need to carry out these checks.

Also, sticking with the Brexit theme, according to an article in the BBC, struggling towns are set to receive a £1.6 billion boost post Brexit. Just have a listen to how much this ruffles Rob B’s feathers!

Our Hub Extra this week is something similar to one we mentioned a few weeks ago. Braveis a web browser tool which has an ad blocker and tracker built into it which means makes surfing the internet both safer and faster. It might take you half an hour to get set up but it’s sure to make an impact.

This week on ask Rob & Rob we’ve got two listeners who are questioning mortgage products and funding buy-to-let properties.

First up we’ve got Jay who is wanting some tips on how to raise the initial cash required for investing in buy to let property.

Rob D starts off by pointing out the difference between making money and growing money. Although property can be tailored to both, it is more suitable to the latter.

But how do you benefit from either of the methods mentioned by Rob D and how do you make it happen?

Next up we’ve got Helen who wants to know if the limited company mortgage market is going to disappear after a conversation she had with her mortgage broker.

Rob B pulls no punches with this one. Did you know 80% of the buy-to-let market is made up of limited company mortgages? Listen as Rob B tells it like it is.

It’s the last episode of ‘Fundamentals February!’

In this week’s Fundamentals February podcast episode, it’s all about YOU.

The Robs are giving you the tools to help you discover what type of investor you are, and what you can do with that knowledge.

When trying to figure out where you want to be going, you need to know who you are, what your situation is and what you want to achieve. You need to have goals!

The Robs reiterate how important goals are and why they’re a necessity in becoming a successful property investor.

Discovering what type of property investor you are will help you determine your strategy - how you’re going to achieve your goals and stay on the right track.

All of this (and much more) is covered in today’s Property Podcast and it’s a really vital episode. So give it a listen and let us know what you think.

We have some great news to give you too - Property Hub Meetups are back in 2 weeks time! To find out where your nearest one is, head over to our events page.

And in the news this week, Phil Spencer is clearly a listener of the Property Podcast. He’s been discussing the dreaded topic that is Brexit and been echoing what The Robs have been saying for months… that the main impact of Brexit has already happened. Maybe he’s after a slot on the podcast… who knows.

For our Hub Extra this week Rob D has discovered a little tool that’s going to up your Netflix watching level. Netflix classic is a chrome extension that gets rid of everything that Netflix wants you to watch by suggesting it at the top of the screen. So you can get back to watching what you want and get suggestions based on what you’ve already watched. Happy binge watching.

On this week’s ask Rob & Rob we’ve got a bit of a cheeky person who’s jumped the que.

Our very own podcast Dan has a burning question for the Rob’s and they just couldn’t not share it.

Dan Has recently reached his cashflow goals and wants to change his strategy. He’s now looking more towards a property for the capital growth factor, rather than refurbishing a property and releasing the equity.

A number of people may be in this situation and are looking how best to add to their portfolio.

But what do Rob & Rob think of this 2-bed apartment in Stockport? Have a listen to find out...

This week The Robs are continuing with ‘Fundamentals February’.

They’ve already covered leverage and inflation, but today they’re discussing the real reasons why property goes up in value.

It’s a topic that many people brush over because they think it ‘just happens’. But this is where the majority get it wrong.

In this week’s Property Podcast, Rob & Rob will help you understand house price increases and explain how you can use it to your advantage.

The 18-year property cycle is also a large aspect in this week’s episode. So why not put your knowledge to the test and take part in our free property cycle course?

The Robs also announce some very exciting news. Yes - Property Hub Meetups are back! To find out where your nearest one is, head over to our events page.

In the news this week, Your Move announced that they will be closing 124 Reeds Rains branches in order to boost profits. Rob B has said it for years, but could this really be the start of the death of the high street agent?

This week on Ask Rob & Rob, you’re in for a whole load of cracking advice off the back of two great questions from avid Property Podcast listeners, Wilson and Val.

First up we have Wilson who’s keen to ask Rob B a question about a location that’s very close to his heart - Liverpool! Wilson has noticed that certain property prices in Liverpool have dropped in value since they sold back in 2007.

Naturally, Wilson wants to know if the next phase of the property cycle is likely to improve these prices.

Without being too biased, Rob B admits that Liverpool is massively underpriced at the minute, one of the main reasons The Robs pegged it as one of their 2019 property investment hotspots. But he offers some sound advice on thorough due diligence when looking at less popular areas and what to expect. If you’re looking for a great location to invest in this year, this is a great podcast listen for you!

The second question this week comes from Val who is concerned about falling into the trap of becoming a mortgage prisoner.

Listen as Rob D takes charge, reiterating some basic points that were covered in episode 308 of the Property Podcast on getting a mortgage.

Why should Val stick to a 75% loan to value mortgage? What other actions would The Robs recommend Val take to avoid being a mortgage prisoner? Hit play to find out.

If this week’s property investment knowledge bombs weren’t enough for you, head over to the Property Hub University and take part in the free online courses we have available.

Rob & Rob are back this week with part 2 of ‘Fundamentals February’ and this week they’re discussing the crucial topic of inflation.

The Robs have talked about inflation in the past, but it’s still a topic that gets overlooked regularly. Today they’re going to prove why inflation is one of the most important parts of the property process.

In this week’s episode The Robs discuss:

  • What is inflation?
  • How does it work?
  • How can it affect you?

Ultimately, inflation can either make you very rich if you adapt with it, or, if you choose to do nothing, it could break you. Year-to-year you barely notice, but over time it’s huge!

So, now you might be thinking:

  • Why does it happen?
  • What does it mean for you?

 

Tune in and all will be revealed. You’ll want a pen and paper to hand for this one.

In the news this week, the government have been a busy lot! We’ve got a triple whammy of announcements:

  1. Electrical checks are now mandatory every 5 years
  2. Landlords now have to be a part of a redress scheme
  3. Only 1 in 10 landlords have their property fully managed

 

We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future - if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do.

This week on Ask Rob & Rob we’ve got Ben who phoned in to ask The Rob’s two cracking questions!

Ben starts with a controversial property question asking if a Labour majority government would have a negative effect on landlords? Politics can be a touchy subject for most, so listen as Rob B treads carefully to provide a neutral and informative answer.

The silver lining that Rob D so kindly pointed out is that whatever happens, it won’t be forever.

Ben’s second question was: what’s the quickest way to release equity from an off-plan investment?

Is there such a thing as a quick equity extract? Or should Ben be in it for the long haul? Listen as Rob D tackles this property question head-on.

If you’re wanting to learn more about off-plan property, head over to the Property Hub University and take part in the off-plan property course.

This month we’re bringing you ‘Fundamentals February’, and Rob & Rob are kick starting it with the ever popular topic of leveraging.

If you’ve been listening to The Property Podcast for quite some time, you’ll have heard The Rob’s discuss the power of leveraging on a number of occasions. But that doesn’t mean you should skip over this one.

Whether you’re a new or experienced buy to let property investor, today’s Property Podcast is going to help you understand how you can use leverage to your advantage. Many successful investors have built their portfolios using this powerful method and accelerated their income.

Today’s Property Podcast episode will cover:

  • What is leverage?
  • Why people use leveraging
  • What effect does it have?
  • How can leverage benefit you?

As always, The Robs also chat about a headline that’s grabbed their attention this week: Lenders cut mortgage rates to give a kick-start to 2019.

A pretty well-timed article considering the subject of today’s podcast.

There’s also the referral fee ban, which now finally has a date - but what does this mean for property investors? Hit the play button to find out more.

On this week’s Ask Rob & Rob we have Pat who’s got in touch wanting to know if he should still use leverage now that he’s retired, or use his savings to buy more buy to let property outright.

Pat already has two buy to let properties and is wanting to increase his cash flow but doesn’t need the rental income to live on. 

Second up we've got Natasha who has a residential property with a consent to let from her mortgage provider.  

She’s now wanting to remortgage but oddly the bank is now telling her "no". She wants to know what Rob & Rob would do.

If you’ve been wondering if it’s best to buy investment property with cash or a mortgage, or have been having issues with your mortgage provider, this is an episode you’ll want to listen to.

This week on Ask Rob & Rob, we’ve got Megan from Bournemouth who’s wanting a bit of advice on if she should stick to her hobby of flipping residential properties in the south, or, move on to buy to let properties in the north.

Rob D delves in to the pros and cons of flipping properties and whilst the cons are certainly manageable, they aren’t always for everyone. However, Rob does discuss one huge factor that could save you a serious amount of cash.

Femi also got in touch wanting to know if he has left it too late to start investing in property now that he’s hit 40. You’ll have to tune in and listen to find out what Rob B’s answer was.

You’re in for a treat this week as Rob & Rob are sharing the mic with some great figureheads from the property industry.

But first, they’re talking about their hand-picked news story of the week - click here to read. Is London a ‘sick’ market? With transaction levels slumping, this certainly seems to be the case.

We’ve got some great guests joining us this week:

  1. Richard Blanco - he’s the London representative for the National landlords Association.
  2. Ed Meade - a well-seasoned property and media commentator; you’ve probably read many of his columns in various newspapers.
  3. Lawrence Bowles - an Analyst in the Savills Residential Research team. The information produced by his team is fascinating.
  4. Richard Beridge - a Build-to-Rent sector specialist and his firm focuses on institutional residential investments.
  5. Jeremy Leaf -  an estate agent and also the former chair of RICS. He’s been an industry spokesman for over 20 years.

We’re sure you’ll agree, Rob & Rob are in great company on this week’s Property Podcast. The team actually got together for an upcoming feature in The Property Hub Magazine but we’ve decided to give you a snippet of an interesting discussion we recorded just for the Property Podcast:

What advice would they give to a property investor today?

 

What are their property predictions for 2019?

 

Tune in to this week’s Property Podcast - it’s a great listen and full to the brim with useful property investment information.

This week on Ask Rob & Rob, we’ve got a cracking question. So good in fact, that the guys have dedicated a whole episode to it.

Referring back to a previous podcast about Rob D’s biggest mistake back in December, Jeffery wants Rob D to go into a bit more depth about his £16,800 loss.

And this week, what Jeffery wants… Jeffery gets.  

Rob D opens up and explains why he did what he did with this particular property investment. He also gives useful examples of how the initial cash could have been used differently for a more positive outcome.

If you’ve ever wanted to get into the head of Rob D, this is your chance.

This week we’re talking about the 2019 property hotspots. So if you’re investing in property this year, this is the Property Podcast episode for you.

But first up, Rob & Rob start by sharing a really interesting article - click here to view. It’s been put together by Who Owns England and has uncovered that a shocking 15% of freehold land in England and Wales is unregistered. So if you’re wanting to find out who owns these pieces of land - it’s tough. Access denied. There’s no telling who the owner is.

There are some other really interesting insights too, press play and listen as Rob B talks you through them.

The main Property Podcast topic this week is 2019 property hotspots. Rob & Rob have done their research and compiled this year's location hit list. So if you’re planning to invest in buy to let property this year, grab a pen & paper and have a listen as The Robs walk you through the top locations you should be watching out for.

The Robs are also talking about Manchester city centre, the “ripple effect”, regeneration and of course, the 18-year property cycle.

Did we also mention that there’s a course on where Rob & Rob are investing in 2019 too?

It’s yet another jam-packed Property Podcast!

We’re back for the second round of Ask Rob & Rob year, and our listeners are firing some cracking questions over to us.

In this week’s episode the guys are going back over a topic they’ve covered a number of times after one of our Hubbers, Philippa, asked if she should worry about ROI if she is buying for growth.

In the past, Rob B has said that you should be focussing on an ROI of around 10%. But is this still the case if you’re in it for the long haul? Should you be looking at instant income in addition to (or instead of) growth? Is it actually possible to have it all?

Tune into this week’s Ask Rob & Rob to find out.

The next question is: Which landlord organisation should I join?

Rob D tackles this one head on. It’s not often that a landlord organisation is at the top of a landlord’s to-do list, so listen as Rob runs through the reasons why you should join and also listen out for a little wild-card he throws in!

We’re kicking off 2019 with a bang on this week’s Ask Rob & Rob.

 

Our first question is from regular listener Neil who wants to know if he should turn his flat into serviced accommodation. Here’s an overview:

 

  • 2-bed apartment in Slough city centre
  • It’s currently on an AST with a 6 monthly review
  • Achieving around £1,000 per month in rent
  • Because of management fees and service charges biting into profit, he’s considering trying a new form of investment in serviced apartments

 

Neil reveals what info he’s already found out about serviced apartments but is still unsure as to whether it will be the right move for him financially. Rob D delves into the pros and cons of serviced apartments but does he think it’s a good move? Listen to find out what the final outcome was.

 

The second question is from Ben who wants to know if ALL leasehold houses are a bad investment. Rob & Rob have covered the leasehold topic countless times but you’ll have to listen to find out if Rob B’s opinion has changed since we last covered this subject.

Happy New Year! We’re starting 2019 off with a bang and are reviewing the property predictions we made last year.

This is quite possibly the most nervous part of the year for Rob & Rob! Did they get their property predictions spot on, or should they keep quiet next time? Let’s find out...

Last year Rob B predicted Liverpool would be in the top 3 cities for growth this year. Was he right? Did his other two choices make the cut?

And what about growth? The Robs had different perspectives on what they expected from the 2018 property market - did either of them get it right on the money?

There were also bold claims made about the London property market too, with Rob D predicting that it’ll be outperformed by every other region of England (excluding Scotland and Wales). It’s no secret that London has taken a hit over the past 12 months, but each time Rob D has made this prediction, the capital has continued on an upwards trend. Have the tables finally turned?

The Robs didn’t stop there either. Rob B also made comments about mainstream lenders entering the limited company market. Are there more of them? Or have they not opened their doors just yet?

If that wasn’t enough, they also covered Bitcoin and the stock market. So if you listened at the start of this year, sit back and hit play to find out just how right (or wrong) The Robs got their predictions.

If 2019 is the year you want to start (or make the most of) your property journey, join Rob & Rob on their Discovery Webinar in January by clicking here.

Welcome to this week’s Property Podcast where we’re reviewing what’s happened in 2018. It’s been a busy one, particularly for property investors, so we’re using this time to reflect on the property market and also our year too.

Firstly we take a look at Brexit - this was a hot topic at the start of the year and remarkably it’s still unresolved! We’ve also had the letting fee ban and the budget where pretty much nothing happened for property investors - which is always a good thing!

So where we thought 2018 would be a big year for change, is 2019 looking likely to steal the limelight? Listen to find out what Rob & Rob think.

We also take a look at 2018 trends on this week’s Property Podcast.

What happened this year that Rob & Rob predicted a while ago? And why have property investors flocked to The Northern Powerhouse? People have finally started waking up to certain locations which could prove to be a very wise move.

Also, what have the media reports done for the property industry throughout the year? Negativity? Conflicting stories? All of the above? Rob D feels the media have been somewhat confused this year with many mixed reports. Does this mean we’re in the mid cycle property wobble? Hear what Rob & Rob think and hit the play button.

 

Finally, this year has been great for Rob & Rob, and the team at The Property Hub.

2018 was the year for Rob B’s first development and both Rob & Rob have previously talked listeners through the investments they’ve made this year.

But it doesn’t stop there - there have been new businesses formed and some major changes happening, which we can’t share right now but will be unveiled at the start of next year.

We’d like to wish all our listeners a very happy and prosperous 2019!
