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?

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?

May 24, 2018

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?

May 17, 2018

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.

It’s been 5 years since we started this podcast!  It’s hard to believe. So much has changed in that time too.  In this episode we have a look at the 5 biggest changes to property investment since we began.  We also have a flash back to episode 1 - you have been warned.

NEWS THIS WEEK

We get asked about buying off-plan all the time, so this week we dig into the archives to revisit one of our earlier episodes.

We look at what off-plan means.  We discuss the potential risks and rewards.  And we reveal how Rob B personally lost money on a deal, despite his knowledge of the sector.

For the past couple of episodes, we’ve been following some Hubbers on their property journey.  We’ve learnt how they started, what they’re up to now and where they want to get to. They’ve shared their challenges and also their successes.

 

In this episode, we asked each of them one follow up question.  “What’s the one thing you wish you knew at the beginning of your journey?”

This week’s episode is very special as it marks 5 years since we began The Property Podcast.

 

For 5 years we’ve tried to educate as many people as possible.  We’ve spoken about location, strategy, running the numbers, tax, finance and much more.  This week however, we wanted to hear from you.

 

We’ve been in touch with some Hubbers and we’re going to hear their stories about their own property journeys.  We’ll find out where they’re at, what challenges they’ve faced and what successes they’ve had.

 

We absolutely loved hearing their stories and we hope that it’ll not only motivate and and inspire you, but will show you that you are not alone on your own journey.
