Recently we discussed the pros and cons of buying new and buying old.  We tapped into how buying older properties that need refurbishment come with a lot more work and stress; they also can come with a lot more reward.

 

This episode we talk to an active investor who gives us the realities of refurbing older properties.  We find out what it actually takes to find a property, have some work done and get it rented - and doing it remotely!

 

NEWS THIS WEEK

 

It looks like the increase in stamp duty isn’t bringing as much revenue as expected a report suggests.  Could it be that raising taxes can deter buyers?  This sounds like an opportunity to discuss the Laffer Curve Effect!

What’s better?  Flats or houses?  North or South? Yield or growth?  We get asked these questions all the time.  New builds or older property is no different.

 

In this week’s episode we have a look at the pro and cons of old vs new in each stage of an investor’s process; from setting your initial goals to what to expect long term - to help you decide which strategy is for you.

 

We also look at our own portfolios to reflect on what’s worked well and what hasn’t.

 

NEWS THIS WEEK

 

Britain’s best and worst yielding areas have been revealed.  We’ve both happy about the results for different reasons, but as always we take our news with a pinch of salt.

Late last year in episode 249 we made our predictions for 2018.

 

We harnessed all our psychic ability to glimpse into the future to look at which cities would enjoy the highest growth, what would happen to London or would interest rates rise.  We were even bold (or foolish) enough to predict the future of Bitcoin.

 

Now that we’re at the halfway point in the year, it’s time to see if our predictions are on track.  Fingers crossed!

NEWS THIS WEEK

An article this week claims that Manchester tops list of best UK cities to be a landlord.  This certainly bodes well as we review our predictions, but does this list have some unexpected surprises?

We came across this really interesting article at the very excellent landlordlawblog.co.uk and knew we had to talk about it.

 

We can’t stress enough how important it is to have the right people in your team.  The people who look after your building work, do your conveyancing and provide you with finance options.  The people who manage the properties in your portfolio are no exception.

 

There are some truly fantastic letting agents out there who do exceptional work.  But this is the type of sector that attracts sharks and we want to make sure you know what to look out for, so you don’t get bitten.

NEWS THIS WEEK

 

This week we look at an article from propertywire.co.uk with the intriguing headline: “The value of flats have increased the most in the UK over last five years”.

 

Has the time come to give up on houses and focus solely on flats?
