Today I'm delighted to be joined by Marc Turnier, an architect turned investor who's sharing with us how his experience working on £100million plus landmark buildings led him to start his own portfolio flipping houses and buying small blocks of flats in Kent. 

During the interview we look at affordable investing in the south east, what tips from the world of architecture we can apply to our own projects, and what Marc's plans are for the future to step away from client work and become a full time investor.

Today it's time for our March Monthly update, and what a crazy month it was!  During this episode we share some highs and lows from one of the most challenging months we've faced as property investors and small business owners - from completing on our latest purchase and raising £200,000 in the midst of the coronavirus lockdown to having rooms sitting empty that we can't do anything to fill and being stuck on an expensive bridge whilst the mortgage market shuts down.

Roland Symonds is a full time HMO investor living and investing in South London.

During the interview we get to explore how Roland has created 32 HMO rooms in a little over a year, his views on the three biggest objections we get about investing in HMOs in London - that it's too expensive, that article 4 has made it impossible, and that there's too much competition, and what he's learned between his first house and his most recent one.

In this bonus episode we take a look at 7 different tasks you can focus on during isolation/social distancing that will prepare your business for growth once life begins to return to normal.

For most of us our priority is going to be looking after ourselves and our family above all else. But we can also choose to make time to put ourselves and our businesses in the best possible position for the future.

Today I'm delighted to be joined by Anthony Hunter, a north east based investor who is rapidly scaling his portfolio by sticking to the basics and becoming a real expert in high-demand single lets. 

Along with his brother, he's grown a great business and created freedom and choice in his life with a strategy that most dismiss as boring or not capable of generating big enough returns. 

Hopefully this interview goes some way to giving you the confidence that there is no right or wrong strategy when you're starting out - the real success comes from picking one that makes sense to you and getting stuck in.

Today Victoria and I are getting together behind the mic for an overview of our biggest takeaways from Social Media Marketing World 2020.  This is a conference we attended in California 2 weeks ago and got so much value from for our business, but don't worry if you're listening to this thinking 'jeez Mike, I don't care about Facegram or The Twitter, I just want to build a property portfolio' because none of our biggest takeaways relate specifically to social media tactics. 

We've got 5 high-level business and mindset topics to cover that will have a positive impact on any business.  We discuss each one for a couple of minutes, so stick with us, see which of them resonate most with you, think about what would have the biggest impact on your own business, and leave the rest behind.

Today we've got our second HMO month interview, and today we're joined by Clair Mcardle, a North West based investor and owner of Blue Sky Spaces.

As with Ben & Jules, our guests last week, Clair has achieved a huge amount in just a couple of years, recently hitting her goal of creating 5 HMOs over the past 24 months. 

After a bit of a false start and some uncertainty with exactly where she should be investing, Clair discovered she didn't need to follow the crowd to Manchester where she'd first attempted to grow her portfolio.  Instead, she focussed on areas closer to home and as well as making her life a lot easier, she's discovered a great local niche where her properties are in huge demand. 

We often talk about mini-HMOs generating £600-800 monthly profit, but Clair's latest 4 bedroom HMO is generating in excess of £1,000 every month, in a location many before her had dismissed as unprofitable and low value.  It really goes to show what the right area analysis can do for your business.

There are many great insights like this in today's episode so I'm sure it'll open your eyes to the potential of HMO investing.

Today we've got our first HMO month interview with the husband and wife team, Ben & Julia, from fortunice property. 

I'm delighted to have them on the show because they're an amazing example of the impact property can have on your life in a short space of time.

In 18 months they were able to create a £3,000 monthly income enabling Jules to leave the corporate world behind and focus on raising her family, and now as they've progressed from small HMOs to larger ones, they're generating in excess of £1,000 per project.

Ben is still working in a corporate job he enjoys, but Jules is on the brink of taking some time off as they prepare to have their second child, but the real beauty is their income will continue whilst she focusses on family life due to the recurring revenue from their portfolio.

We're starting off the year by devoting the podcast to HMOs for the month of January - kind of like shark week on the discovery channel but much more exciting, we'll be spending the next couple of episodes looking at the HMO strategy in the current climate.

Today's episode specifically asks the big question of whether they're still a good investment option in 2020 and beyond. I'll let you in on a little secret, we 100% think they are, but we're going to look at some of the pros and cons, how the market is changing, and how our own approach is changing to ensure that we remain competitive. 

If you're thinking about investing in HMOs this year, or have been trying to already but just not been able to get if off the ground, this make sure you stick around over the next few weeks and hopefully we can get you started on the right foot!

In this episode I thought it'd be fun to share some - 'fairly personal' details about our new goals and property plans for the next couple of years.  I'm going to break down the process Victoria and I have been through recently to create a new vision for our future, understand the financial targets we need to hit to make that vision a reality, and then break it down further to put a create a roadmap that tells us what we need to be doing in terms of the type and number of projects to get there. 

 

I'm sharing this for two reasons - the first is that it's a genuine reflection of the process we go through pretty regularly to reassess our goals and make sure we're still working towards a vision that inspires us.  It's something we get asked about a lot, in terms of how we set goals and what our future plans are, so I though it'd be fun to go into the detail of latest goal setting session and tell you what we want to achieve and how we arrived at those plans.

 

The second reason is that we wanted to take it a step further and work with you to create your own vision, goals and roadmap for the next 3-5 years.  January seemed like the perfect time to do this, and especially this year as it's the start of a new decade, so we decided to run a free 5 day challenge this month where every day we share one simple but effective assignment that combined will create a meaningful roadmap for your own investing journey.

 

If you want to join us for free then the easiest way to register is to go to www.insidepropertyinvesting.com/5daychallenge and we'll send you all of the details.

James Mitchell, a young family man with an entrepreneurial background. He decided he wanted to spend more time with his kids, picked serviced accommodation as his focus area with no real experience, and 18 months later has created a million pound company between his rent to SA units, his SA management company and his cleaning and maintenance business. 

 

It was great to find out how James was able to pick up so many deals and grow his business so quickly, but my favourite parts of the discussion are his tips for generating more direct bookings and systemising his business to the extent it only takes him about an hour a day to run.

Ben Keenan, an australian born, UK based solicitor who is jumping into the deep end of new build developments whilst still working full time as general council for an international construction company.

He's relatively early in his own property career but is a great example of how property can work alongside a busy day job, how your relevant skills and experience can help you skip the early stages of property investing, and how finding the right partners can allow you to achieve more collectively than you'd be able to do on your own.

Today I'm delighted to be joined by fellow property nomad Peter Armistead. A property investor running his business in Manchester whilst living in the skiers heaven of Whistler, British Columbia.

In his extensive career he's developed over 500 apartments in South Manchester, won countless awards for his projects, built his dream home in the Canadian mountains and trains regularly for ultramarathons.

I love discovering other investors who're making property work for them, rather than the other way around, and Peter is a great example of this.

If you've got any desire to use property as a vehicle for more freedom in your life then you're going to love this episode.

The real focus of today's episode is on Jane's podville developments - serviced offices created from shipping containers.

With one development up and running in Bristol, another in progress in Milton Keynes, and more in the pipeline, we look at the pros and cons of this alternative construction method, as well as looking more generally at Jane's fascinating career history in the property world and her top tips for raising finance.

Today we are joined by Rob Stewart, successful property developer and a leading authority on, well… authority.

That's what we're focussing on in today's podcast - how you can accelerate your expert status, attract clients with ease, and charge what you're worth.

Now let's be clear - this isn't about becoming another property education company - it's about how the power of creating a personal brand can help scale your property business, whether that's by attracting private finance to your next project, introducing clients for your service business, or finding investors who want to buy the deals you're sourcing.

If you're aware of the power a strong brand can have on your business then this episode is for you. And if you're sceptical or unconvinced then it's definitely for you.

Wow, what an interview. Today I am joined by Ruth Hobbs, one half of Derby based property company "Urban Sisters" and easily one of the most passionate people I've come across in this industry. We laughed, we cried and she did not hold back.

As the name would suggest, it’s a family affair, and the two sisters have a variety of projects on the go, with their most recent project, a 1.6million luxury student development earning them a nomination for best HMO at this years Property Investor Awards.

We've been a bit quiet recently and its time we explained why. Boat issues, planning issues, finance issues....sometimes it just all gets a bit too much. Thankfully we can see light at the end of the tunnel, so its time to share what's been going on.

You may remember him from one of our very first episodes way back in 2015, and now he is back to talk about his growth over the years, managing a portfolio of over 100 HMOs, the importance of having a cash flowing business, and the opportunities he sees in Rent 2 Rent.

Todays podcast is a little different to normal, and we welcome four property investors, all at different stages of their careers, but all with invaluable advice to share. It comes off the back of our most recent Instagram challenge #7daysofproperty, something we have run a few times now, but without doubt the most successful of which was a couple of weeks.

One of the specific challenges was to share a piece of advice, and as I was scrolling through the days posts, some of them really stood out to me and I selected a few people and asked them to elaborate a bit more.

We pulled the advice together into a video (and a podcast) and that’s what we are sharing today. It’s a relatively short episode, but hopefully you will all get something valuable from it.

Today, Victoria and I take a look at the progress that's been made over the past 2 months with our own portfolio. It's been a real adjustment period for us as we get used to life on the boat but things are still moving on well:

  • Our first SA is up and running and bookings are rolling in
  • We've got two large HMO conversions in progress with a JV partner
  • The new build is finally getting out of the ground!
  • And we've got 3 live seminars scheduled in September for the launch of the IPI Community

In this episode we talk some big numbers with Anthony Laville, founder of Volume Property. 

We look at his favourite rent to rent deal, a 39 bedroom purpose built student accommodation block, which really got him started with his property investing career, we talk about his pipeline of projects with an estimated GDV of £100 million, and his delight at being behind Birmingham's first co-living project with around 250 residents.
