Earlier this year, we caught up with some of our Hubbers who are out there on their own property journeys.  They shared their plans, goals, challenges and successes. 6 months on, we chat to them again for a progress report on what they’ve been up to.


NEWS THIS WEEK

A story from the other side of the planet has caught our attention this week.  New Zealand is set to ban foreigners from buying property.  We discuss why they’d do such a thing and if is this something the U.K. should consider?

Refurbishing property is a tricky business but if you can get it right, the rewards are there.  A good builder is obviously essential if you intend on making this your strategy. To help, we’ve been speaking with Ian; a builder with more than 30 years in the business.

We learnt so much from Ian in the last episode, we had to get him back for another lesson.  This week we focus on what a lot investors worry about - “What if something goes wrong?”

NEWS THIS WEEK

Two headlines caught our attention this week:  Rents in UK will rise for next five years, experts predict and Rents have merely kept pace with RPI over past five years.  On closer inspection these stories seem to be linked and are pretty dramatic when taken at face value.  Is this another case of things being blown out of proportion?

HUB EXTRA

We always try and give you extra with Hub Extra.  This week we want to save you extra. We wanted to share MileIQ. This is a great tool for tracking how many tax deductible miles you are driving.

Refurbing properties is such a popular strategy amongst investors, but it can also be a very stressful path to take. We get so many questions about how to tackle the subject we decided to call in an expert.

In this episode we talk to Ian - who’s been in the business for 30 years and runs his own construction company. Ian’s going to take us through how to find a good builder and set your project up for success.

NEWS THIS WEEK

Not only did the interest rate rise dominate the headlines this week, it also cast shadow on our predictions from the beginning of the year.  How will the rest of year play out?

We also discovered a story with the terrifying headline: Landlords face up to 17 week wait to evict problem tenants. What does this mean for you?  Are you at risk? Is it time to consider insurance?

 

HUB EXTRA

Leading up to this Friday’s Hub Extra newsletter, we take some inspiration from one of the world’s fastest men.

Never before has it been so important to look beyond where you live when searching for your next investment.  The chances of your local area producing the kind of growth or yield you’re looking for is very slim. And with technology being what it is today, it’s never been easier to look further afield.  In this episode we give you the tools you need to be a remote investor.

NEWS THIS WEEK

An Express article this week reads: UK Property: Market ‘subdued’ as New Housing Minister Appointed.  Is the market starting to stall or is this another case of the weight of London influencing the media?

 

 

HUB EXTRA

From this week’s Hub Extra, we’ve picked out a super easy, tiny tip that has saved our sanity, improved our productivity and helped us focus.
