This could be the opportunity that changes your life.  If you’re looking for a career in property, this episode is essential.

 

We are looking for an apprentice to be mentored by Rob B.  A rare opportunity like this only comes about once in a blue moon.

 

In this episode, we’ll explain what the role is, what you can expect to learn and what you’ll be doing on a day to day basis.  This is certainly a way to supercharge your career!

 

You can find out more right here.

NEWS THIS WEEK

We have 2 news stories this week.  First is that the property market is to become flooded as 380,000 landlords are to sell up.  This sounds very dramatic.

 

But hang on, the second story says the number of buy to let investors hits record 2.5 million high.

 

Two very conflicting headlines here.  What could it mean?

Over the last couple of episodes, we’ve been discussing the economy as a whole and how that relates to the 18 year property cycle.

 

In episode 269 we laid the groundwork by breaking down the very excellent “How The Economic Machine Works” by Ray Dalio (and again, if you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you check it out!)

 

Then for Episode 270 we took a year by year look at the 18 year property cycle from 2008, right up to today.

 

This week we continue our analysis of the cycle by looking into the future.  We’re going to go year by year - right up to the next crash. Some bold predictions are in store. We’re either very brave or very foolish.

NEWS THIS WEEK

In news this week, interest rates are on hold as The Bank of England has cut the growth outlook.  Is this a good or bad thing?

In the last episode we broke down the phenomenal video by Ray Dalio: “How The Economic Machine Works” (and again, if you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you check it out!).

 

This week, we follow that up with one of the most requested episodes we’ve ever had - a year by year break down of the 18 year property cycle.  We’ll discuss how it aligns with what Ray Dalio talks about, we’ll take a look back on what’s happened in recent years and we’ll peer into the future to try to see where we are headed next.

NEWS THIS WEEK

In the news this week, the BBC reports on an inquiry that has a housing committee calling for properties to be confiscated from rogue landlords.  Are these measures too severe or is it the right deterrent the industry needs?

When investing in property, understanding how the economy works is just as important to your long term success as finding your target area, gaining finance or doing building work.

 

And few people understand how the economy works better than Ray Dalio.  Among numerous other things, Ray is a billionaire investor, hedge fund manager and philanthropist.  He’s also the creator of the absolutely brilliant and essential video “How The Economic Machine Works” (it’s also really worthwhile checking out Ray’s Youtube page too!).

 

We can’t recommend this video enough.  We strongly urge everyone to check it out.  It’s only 30 minutes, but could really help you for years to come.  In this episode, we summarise Ray’s thoughts and illustrate how they apply to property investment.

NEWS THIS WEEK

In the news this week, it appears that our predictions continue to come to fruition.  Central London property prices are falling. While £600,000 off a home in Mayfair may seem like a drop in the ocean, it’s that drop that’s the beginning of the ripple effect.  You can find out more here.

Interest rates are in the same place now as when we first began the podcast 5 years ago!  Even though they’re at the same level now, a lot has changed in that time.

In this episode, we have a look at what’s happened over the last 5 years, we have discuss what’s changed and we help you decide what to do next.

NEWS THIS WEEK

It’s a great week for news, for 2 reasons.  First, it means one of our predictions has come to pass.  And secondly and more importantly, it’s great news for anyone wanting to purchase a property via a limited company using a mortgage.  Aldermore has announced that they’ll be offering reduced rates for portfolio landlords in line with their buy to let rage for private individuals.  Find out more here.
