In todays Interview I sit down with the founders of Bauhaus Living, an East Midlands based development company. Andy and Sunjay come from the advertising industry and entered the world of property development 5 years ago with no experience, but that first chance project ignited a passion in them that has led to pretty impressive success building new residential blocks.

In fact they attribute some of that success to not knowing much about property, meaning they can focus on building a business rather than trying to build walls.

We’re back with our latest warts and all lowdown of what we’ve been up to with our own project recently. We’ve got tons of updates, including getting two properties fully tenanted and taking the first steps with two new commercial conversions. We’ve even managed to squeeze some time in to scout out a co-working space.

Today I'm joined by Chris Hammond, an investor focussing on commercial conversions, flips and adding value to property through planning gain.

He's become a real inspiration to Victoria and I with the quality of projects he's working on, and we discuss plenty of these during the interview as well as how he used his own family home to scale the property ladder, and how he's growing his team in line with growing his business.

Jul 17, 2018

Today I'm joined by Nic Scudamore, a buy to let investor living in the south but focusing his investing on the north in order to get returns he's happy with. 

In only a few short years with only a handful of properties and by helping others source good deals, he's been able to replace his income and step away from the corporate world.

Jul 11, 2018

Today I want to talk about some different sources of finance to help you fund your next deal. None of these are big secrets, but sometimes it just takes a little reminder of something to show you how valuable it can be. 

There are 10 different options I'm going to talk through in this episode, with the hope that at least one of them can become a fresh source of finance for you. 

Jul 3, 2018

You've heard todays guests, Marc and Rob Hodgkiss on the podcast before back on episode 173, and they've featured in a couple of videos on our Youtube channel as well. I'll post the links to all of these on the shownotes page in case you haven't come across them before and want a proper introduction, but in a nutshell they're full time property investors focusing primarily on serviced accommodation. 

Because they don't necessarily invest where they live, with a portfolio split between Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and London, they've had to focus on implementing systems from day 1 so they can operate their short term lets from a distance.

That's exactly what we're going to be talking about today, diving into the details behind some of the systems they rely on most for managing from a distance, in a sort of follow up to our recent interview with Dale Smith talking all about his SA marketing processes.

Jun 26, 2018

Last week I sat down with Luke Spikes at his latest Higgihaus project in Swansea to understand more about his property and business plans around the co-living market.

He has a fascinating view on the philosophy around co-living, and an exception attention to detail. We discuss his philosophy during the interview, but obviously that design focus is difficult to convey via audio, so I recorded a short video tour whilst I was there which you can check on our youtube channel as well.

In this episode I sit down with Nicole Bremner in her London recording studio to talk about the power and value of personal brand building for everyone in the property world.

She was one of our first ever guests back on episode 13 in what was one of her first property interviews, and since then she's been a popular feature in some of our vlogs showcasing the amazing developments she's working on.

More than that though, she has built a phenomenal personal brand, becoming a leading personality in the property industry as a speaker at the biggest events across the country, topping the amazon charts with her best selling book, being featured in the Sunday Times and the Daily Mail, and taking over our feeds on virtually every social media platform.

This was just a short and impromptu interview, but I hope you enjoy it! 

May 25, 2018

Dale Smith is back on the show with us today for the 3rd time, so he needs very little introduction.  I'll make sure the links are shared for his original interview back on episode 177 where he was on the brink of leaving the corporate world, and for his very recent appearance on episode 217 where he gave us an update on his first year as a full time investor.

Today's episode focusses specifically on advertising and marketing tips for Serviced Accommodation, something we are just branching into and I'm sure will be of interest to a lot of you as well. We talk about channel managers, OTAs, direct bookings and much more. 

May 10, 2018

Today I am thrilled to be joined by Daniel Hillman. He has had a pretty interesting background in property to end up where he is today, starting with 4.5 years at Candy & Candy working on projects like One Hyde Park. 

He's an entrepreneur at heart and has had his fair share of struggles alongside all of the successes, but now has more clarity than ever on what direction his property business is moving in, with a pipeline of 300 units to deliver this year and aspirations to become a volume housebuilder competing with the likes of Bellway and Berkeley Homes.

I've recorded this episode running through our goal setting process to help you figure out what your goals should look like for the next 12 months and what investment (and other) strategies are best suited to help you achieve them. 

Our financial goal setting template and guide can be downloaded from the shownotes page at insidepropertyinvesting.com/goalsetting

If HMO investing is part of the strategy to hit your goals then join us on one of our upcoming investor open days.

Apr 26, 2018

Today I'm delighted to be joined by Adrian Moloney, sales Director of OneSavings bank, however you'll likely be more familiar with their trading companies Kent Reliance and Interbay commercial. 

 I've asked Adrian to come on the show to unravel some of the myths and uncertainties around mortgages, particularly relating to HMO specific products, as it seems to be a common area of disagreement and potential dangerous misinformation. 

Apr 13, 2018

Twelve months ago Dale was on the brink of leaving the corporate world to pursue property full time. We took a visit up to Whitby where he took us through his vast achievements over the past year and talk about making both SA and commercial property work in a seaside resort. 

Watch the video to see behind the scenes of footage of Dale's portfolio: https://youtu.be/jm-TpmL_g2E

Apr 6, 2018

Today I'm welcoming Fiona Talbot back to the show, 3 years after her first interview.  Having been in the property industry for 20 years now, she was already a success when we last spoke, but a big part of her focus since then has been on developing and professionalising the business side of things more than just growing a portfolio. 

This is something she takes particularly seriously, and we both agree that knowledge of business growth is an area that we all need to be mindful of from the start of our investing, alongside getting out there and doing deals, so that's what we're going to focus on today.

Mar 29, 2018

Today I'm thrilled to be joined by James Davis, CEO of uPad, the UK's largest online lettings agency. 

He should be pretty comfortable here today as he started his career in the world of radio after setting up his own station at university and being awarded best student station of the year by BBC Radio one.  Whilst scaling the corporate ladder after graduating though he began to grow his own property portfolio, and then 10 years ago founded what has gone on to become the largest online lettings agency in the UK. 

In this episode I get some great tips and insights from James on successful rental property advertising.

Jade got her first taste of the property game 7 years ago and has been steadily growing her portfolio ever since.

In the last year, she’s made the switch to working in property full time and now has 3 HMO projects in progress. Balancing property and two small children is no walk in the park, but Jade consistently puts in the hard work and is starting to reap the rewards.


Mar 8, 2018

Last week we were joined in Manchester by Sarah Smith, Chris Brown and Francisco Diaz, 3 investors who have all taken different approaches to managing their growing portfolios.

That's what we focus on in this episode, talking about the pros and cons of self-managing vs using an agent, and how to know when it's time to get help with your properties.

Today we've got an interview I'm really excited about as we're going to focus on one of my favourite things - spending less time working instead of more! 

About two years ago I had the real pleasure of interviewing Jackie Tomes for the first time, and as per our usual format we covered her own property story and how, at the time, she'd been able to build a property portfolio worth almost one and a half million with an annual rent roll of over £100k and a £40k net profit. 

That in itself was a great story, and if you haven't come across Jackie before I'd suggest going back and listening to that, but today not only do I have the chance to catch up with Jackie but also to be joined by her husband David to discuss how their business has progressed in those two years, but more importantly how they've been able to create a business that works for them rather than the other way around.

Lizzie Frazer is a friend of ours from Dubai who we wanted to introduce to you because she's going to be sharing some content over the coming months about her successes and struggles as an overseas investor.  

She'll be looking at things like sourcing good deals outside your area, managing your team when you're not on site every day or even every month, and she'll be starting off with an article about the structure of her most recent property company where a group of investors have joined forces to work on larger deals than they could do independently. 

Given she's a corporate solicitor, she really knows what she's talking about in this regard, and that first article should be live on our website by the time you're listening to this interview, so sit back and get acquainted with Lizzie for the next 30 minutes, then check out her article if you've got any interest in SPVs and company structures.

Today we have the amazing Nellie McQuinn on the show. I got to know Nellie after meeting her husband Matthew at a property event in London late last year, and since then I've been desperate to get her behind the mic.  

Originally from Sydney, she now lives in London and as well as having a successful media production company, she jumped into the property world a little over 18 months ago with her first buy to let, followed soon after by her first flip which netted a pretty impressive £150k profit and won her the property investor of the year award in 2017.

Ben & Tom Thorns return to the show to share their final update towards their 2017 goals.  They started the year with a big focus on HMOs and rent to rent deals, but as their land sourcing systems started to gain traction they're now spending the majority of their time looking at these longer term projects.  

With a few development deals secured, in addition to the increase in their HMO portfolio, they've definitely hit their £12,000 per month increase that they set at the start of the year. 

Jan 22, 2018

Today I am joined by Jonathan Ioannou in a coffee shop near his home turf in Nottingham. At 27 years old, he has almost reached his goal of 100 HMO rooms, two years ahead of schedule.

In this episode, we delve into how he manages a full-time job while rapidly growing this portfolio, and what his plans are for the future.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Murat Haykir, or Mo as he's more commonly known, founder of Moorview Property and the KHP Group.  Operating predominantly in Devon, between these two companies Mo is growing his HMO portfolio, Serviced Accommodation business, and his pipeline of development projects. 

He's also extended his HMO and SA management services to help other investors, and recently launched the Professional Investment Group Podcast (PIG Pods)...

Happy New Year! I'm feeling pretty frustrated about some of the stuff I saw happening across the property investment community in 2017, so this is more of a rant on what was going wrong and what we can do to fix it. Let's get back to helping each other succeed rather than succeeding by stamping over each other!

Dec 21, 2017

Today I am delighted to be joined by Sarah Smith, a landlord, investor and letting agent from Southampton who left her life as a solicitor behind to make property her full time focus.

As well as being ranked in the top 2 agencies in Southampton out of a massive 108, she also hosts a local property network meeting and loves to guide others into the property world.
