Don’t you believe it…we are in dispute with our management company & they have the nerve to chase me on the account, when we submit photographic evidence that they are not maintaining our investment.

Roof Maintenance = safety.

How about ensuring our clients are safe, good hosuekeeping!

BTW we have 6 apartments with this outfit!

Tried Keeping Up With The Jones’

Hi hope you’re all doing fantastic looking at what’s available on the market, applying logic and exercising due diligence, no need to rush there are plenty to go around……….. get your maths right and have fun!

I find that generally when people talk about investments this can mean a few things such as stocks and shares, business opportunities and property and as it’s a hot topic here in the UK that’s where my passion is without any doubt, I mean who can get excited about looking at stocks and shares?

Boom or Bust?

So according to latest media reports, house prices are on the increase again and if you believe that, perhaps now is the time to make a commitment and get on the ladder before it’s too late.

The key is that no one really knows and for all the hype that is coming out of government when it comes down to it, it is your hard earned cash.

For some this could be achievable, but for perhaps the majority of potential homeowners this could be too large a mountain to climb forcing them to remain in the rental market.

Whilst most people today would walk away from potential buy to let properties due to the fear of unemployment, bank interest rates and a falling market. We are here to tell you that this is an ideal time to buy, a falling market means bargains are there to be had.

1. One of the most important things you need to complete is research, this is where most people generally fail, when we say research, this means research your ideal/potential tenants. Once you have identified the ideal tenant that will dictate the type of buy to let property you need to purchase. After all no matter how good you are at negotiating, if you can’t ultimately find a tenant for your property you will fail.
