Nov 16, 2017

This week we’re very lucky to be joined by mortgage broker Dave Cookson to talk us through all the changes going on in the mortgage market at the moment. And there are a lot of them!

We talk about:

  • What the impact of the recent base rate rise has been so far, and what’s likely to happen in the future
  • How lenders are applying the recent "portfolio landlord" requirements
  • How the increased regulation around affordability has affected the market
  • What’s happening with Limited Company mortgages right now
  • The products that have caught Dave’s eye recently
  • What he thinks will happen in the year ahead

It’s been one heck of a year for the mortgage market, so now is the perfect time to take stock. This is a must-listen as you start planning your strategy for next year!

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

Surely it can’t be…yes, it’s another interactive map!

This tool from the BBC tells you how much of your local area is built on. We were shocked to learn that across the UK as a whole, only 6% of land is built on and more than half is farmland.

Well worth a look!

NEWS THIS WEEK

The Mortgage Works has entered the Limited Company buy-to-let market – which is likely to have a huge effect on the market, and lead to other lenders getting involved too.

We talk about this in more detail on the show with our guest, Dave Cookson. We also couldn’t help pointing out that we predicted this nearly a year ago in our 2017 predictions episode!

JOIN THE CONVERSATION

What’s your experience of getting a limited company mortgage been like?

Have you been affected by the new affordability rules?

We’d love to know, so join the discussion in The Property Hub!

It's time for another couple of questions in this week’s edition of ‘Ask Rob & Rob’, Matt from Birmingham and Matt from London…

This week we take a deep dive into the research you should be doing when buying in a new development. Particularly when you're looking at off-plan opportunities, the promises of developers can look great – but there are dangers too, and plenty of unwary investors have ended up with a problem property...or no property at all!

To make sure you're protected, Rob B runs us through the checks he makes at RMP Property when assessing a deal. There's a lot to it, so have your notepad at the ready...

Resource of the week

Would it surprise you to hear that in 58% of the country, house prices are lower now than they were in 2007 by the time you've taken inflation into account?

Well, it's true – and with this interactive map from the BBC you can see exactly where prices are higher in real terms than they were a decade ago, and where they're lower.

Thank you to Paul for sending this our way!

News this week

The Bank of England base rate has risen...all the way back up to the dizzy heights of the previous historic low it was at until 18 months ago. This BBC story covers how it will affect different groups.

Join the conversation

Have you had any bad experiences when buying in a new development?

Is there anything you'd add to our checklist?

Doesn’t time fly? It’s been 10 years since the credit crunch got underway – and looking back at the decade since, there are some valuable lessons to take into the next cycle.

We talk about:

  • The timing of market drops
  • What happened with the availability of credit
  • How to take advantage of the next upswing…
  • …And how to position yourself to profit from the crash
  • And most importantly, what you can expect to be on TV over the next 10 years!

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

If you’re a fan of power naps, check out Pzizz. It’s a free app that uses "binaural beats" to get you to drop off straight away, then wake up feeling refreshed.

Try it at home next time you need a mid-day boost…or try it in the office if you’re not that attached to your job.

NEWS THIS WEEK

It’s another government crackdown! This time, the government is looking into the house buying process – as the BBC reports.

Credit to them for noticing – but they’ve announced so many different reviews recently, don’t hold your breath for something to be done about it…

FREE COURSE ALERT!

We don’t do "hoarding" here at The Property Hub. Even though we run a letting agency, we’ve put together a course telling you how you can let and manage a property yourself.

It’s completely free, and you can watch it at thepropertyhub.net/courses.

Do you know your GDV from your LTV, your Section 21 from your Section 8 and your ROI from your SVR?

If not, never fear: this week we’re busting some property investing jargon!

There are all kinds of acronyms and specialist pieces of terminology that get thrown around in property investing circles – and if you’re new to it, it can be intimidating to ask what on earth everyone is talking about. This week (a mere 240 episodes too late) we’re bringing you up to speed.

(And if you consider yourself an expert, we bet there are still one or two you won’t be sure about!)

Along the way we reference the following episodes and resources:

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

It’s another interactive map! The BBC has put together a handy resource showing where in the country you can afford to rent or buy.

Potentially useful, but at the very least an excellent bit of procrastination.

NEWS THIS WEEK

Barely a week seems to go by at the moment without the government announcing that they’re going to crack down on something – and this week the Guardian reports that ministers have service charges in their sights.

They want to put a stop to “rip-off” fees, and they’re holding a consultation. If you want to put your views forward, the call for evidence is here.

WORK WITH US!

We’re going to be advertising for a lot of new roles in the coming months – and to start with, we’ve got a couple of exciting openings at Yellow Lettings up for grabs.

If you’re looking for your first role in property with the opportunity to progress, this could be perfect. Find out more at http://thepropertyhub.net/jobs.

Pack your umbrella, this week we're taking you on a tour of "The North".

You won't find either "The North" or the "Northern Powerhouse" on a map, because it's actually a collection of different regions – all with their own investment case, and things to look out for. We introduce you to and compare:

  • Liverpool
  • Manchester
  • Sheffield
  • Leeds and West Yorkshire
  • The North East

And importantly, if you've had your head turned by somewhere far from home, we wrap it all up with some tips for staying safe while making that investment happen.

Resource of the week

RMP Property has put together a free guide to the Northern Powerhouse from an investor's perspective, going into more detail on all the areas we talked about this week. You can grab your copy here.

News this week

"Are longer mortgages the answer to high property prices?", asks the BBC.

"No, they're a cause of high property prices", we reply – and it has interesting implications from an investor's point of view.

This week we're talking about how to conduct a viewing. Whether you're showing your property to rent or sell, there are a few simple techniques you can use to radically boost your chances of sealing the deal once you get people through the door.

(A good companion to this episode is Episode 231 on how to find tenants, so you can get those viewings set up first.)

We also look over the Labour and Conservative housing policies that have emerged from the party conferences in recent weeks. What are the politicians planning to throw at landlords next? Take a listen and we'll reveal all!

Buying land and developing isn't something that will be in most people's plans, and it's certainly not for beginners. But most people are attracted by the idea of bigger projects – so whether it's something you're looking at now or aspire to do in the future, this jam-packed episode is a must-listen.

It's a process that Rob B has been through recently, so while it's still fresh in his mind we talk about:

  • Different ways to find land (this isn't a job for Rightmove!)
  • What to consider when it comes to financing the project
  • Ways of finding land that you should be very wary of
  • What to check before you make an offer
  • A formula for working out how much you should be paying
  • What you should be aware of around planning permission
  • How the buying process differs from a normal property project
  • And lots more!

Resource of the week

Rob B gave a ringing endorsement of Ray Dalio's new book, Principles – calling it his favourite book of the year, and he's only halfway through!

Ray's a billionaire and has a lifetime of phenomenal achievements, but his crowning achievement is the honour of appearing in "Resource of the Week" twice: we previously recommended his short video, How The Economic Machine Works.

News this week

The Telegraph reports that Stamp Duty revenue is up dramatically since its changes a couple of years ago – but transactions have fallen too.

A cooler housing market was part of the purpose for the changes, but it's not healthy if that involves fewer transactions too. Will further changes be made? We'll see...

This week we're exploring that critical preliminary step to buying any property: making an offer!

Working out how much to offer is essential, but presenting your offer correctly makes a massive difference too. We explore:

  • How to build a relationship before making any kind of offer
  • Whether to offer in writing or over the phone
  • If you should start with your maximum bid, or go in lower
  • If it's a good idea to explain why your offer is lower than they'd like
  • What to say and do to put your offer in the best light

Resource of the week

It's another interactive map! This one shows how affordability has changed across the UK since 2007.

You can see the stats for any area you're interested in, but playing with the slider and looking at how the picture changes across the country over time is instructive too.

News this week

The volume of property transactions is falling for the first time since 2009, as reported by City AM.

It seems to be driven by a general lack of supply, but a reduction in buy-to-let activity can't be helping. Could we see a tweak to Stamp Duty soon to get the market moving again?

It's meetup time!

We're a week away from the first Thursday of October – and as always, the first Thursday of the month means meetups!

They're all across the UK and beyond, they're free and they're great fun, so why wouldn't you go along? Book your free place here.

Listener deals are back! In one of our favourite and most popular types of episode, this week we run a live analysis of investment opportunities submitted by listeners.

Listen in as we assess the prospects of:

  • A swanky semi with value-adding potential in Kingston-upon-Thames – but do the numbers stack up?
  • A potential flip in south Wales that’s mysteriously stuck on the market
  • A solid buy-to-let investment that stands to benefit from HS2 – but is it overpriced?

If you enjoy this episode, you can also check out our previous “listener deals” episodes here and here.

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

The 18 year property cycle is the concept that’s captured listeners’ imaginations more than anything else (even our jokes) – so we thought it was high time we put together a course on it!

Naturally, it’s completely free and you can watch it here – all you need is a Property Hub account.

NEWS THIS WEEK

Rent controls are on the way in Edinburgh and Glasgow, as local authorities indicate their intention to make use of new powers they’re being granted.

It’s not as dramatic as it sounds and nothing firm has been announced yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more details emerge. In the meantime, the housing minister Alok Sharma has reassured landlords in England that rent controls won’t happen under the current government.

We spend far, far too long looking at Rightmove and Zoopla – so to make ourselves better about how we use our time, we thought we'd make an episode out of it!

They're both phenomenal tools for desktop research, so it's well worth learning how to use them to their full potential. The tips we share in this episode include:

  • Creating custom maps
  • Finding auction properties as soon as they go live
  • Searching for specific keywords
  • Comparing the performance of local agents
  • Find out a property's price history
  • And a lot, lot more!

Resource of the week

Waze is an app for planning your route that's exploded in popularity recently. It allows users to edit the map and submit information about delays and police traps, so it's more up-to-date than most other sources.

The only downside is you'll have less time stuck in traffic to listen to the podcast!

Capital growth is great, but sometimes what you want it lots of cash in the bank right now. If the yields available on single lets just aren't doing it for you, we've got four alternatives:

  • HMOs
  • Holiday lets
  • Small developments
  • Cheapo houses

All of them have the potential to double your yield, but of course they all come with downsides too . We discuss how to choose which (if any) is the right option for you – as well as picking the one we would go for.

Resource of the week

Rob D's life has been changed by the Anker SoundCore Mini: a Bluetooth speaker that's half the size of a soft drink can, yet has amazing sound quality.

If you travel a lot, or you want to play music at something like a picnic, it's perfect – and a steal for under £20.

News this week

As reported in The Mirror, it turns out that a man's bargain auction purchase is scheduled to be demolished.

Just goes to show the importance of checking the legal pack before buying, and having someone view the property in person too – especially if it seems too good to be true!

Investing through a limited company has become exponentially more popular over the last couple of years – but there are aspects of limited company investment that you’re normally not told.

In this episode we bring together our own experiences and observations to shed some light on:

  • The higher costs associated with limited company lending
  • The time you can expect an application to take (and some corrective action that might be needed)
  • The extra steps you’ll need to take, compared with individual applications
  • Some points to be aware of as a result of the market being so new

None of this is intended to put you off: just to encourage you not to rush blindly into something without getting the right advice, and give you some pointers for what to expect along the way.

RESOURCE OF THE WEEK

This episode is about some of the little-known details, but we’ve also put together a course about the bigger picture aspects of limited company investing.

It’s completely free, and you can watch it here

NEWS THIS WEEK

Superstar fund manager Neil Woodford has had a rough year – and he’s trying to turn it around by buying into property shares, as reported in the FT.

This doesn’t mean you should blindly pile in too – but it might give you encouragement that he clearly believes in the health of the sector.
