Build A Better Business With A Little Help

This frightening statistic is often bandied about by economists and business analysts but do you know how this affects you and your business?

It means that for every one of your fellow property investors reading this, four of them are going to fail in their property business.

That just does not sound right to me.

We all got into property investment and business in order to make money right?

But the statistics are against us

So what can you do about it?

Well, if you’ve not already checked out the last “Cracking the Property Code LIVE” event, then you may know that we are running the last ever event this Saturday 29th March 2014.

Property industry reaction to 2013 budget

Property industry reaction to 2013 budget

George Osborne’s spring 2013 budget included new measures to help more people purchase their own homes and this news has been generally welcomed by property industry professionals.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer firmly believes that the measures announced in the spring budget will provide a major boost for the UK economy, despite calls for an economic U-turn from the Labour opposition.

Mr Osborne told the press that there were far more difficult decisions still to be made regarding the nation’s spending in order to get the overall deficit down, however, the government are taking measures to help people buy their own home.

The Chancellor announced that the FirstBuy scheme which was aimed at First-Time Buyers (FTB) on an income of up to £60,000 (GBP) per year, is being replaced with a ‘Help to Buy’ equity loan scheme available to all buyers looking to purchase a new build home up to a value of £600,000 (GBP), with a deposit of just 5%.

A new mortgage guarantee scheme was also announced during the spring budget, which extends the previous NewBuy Guarantee initiative to include older residential properties as well as new-build homes, which he hopes will result in a sharp rise in lending to potential homebuyers, thus kick starting an upturn in the UK property market. The new scheme will start in January 2014.

Buy to let mortgages are not going to be included under the new scheme, however it remains unclear if existing property owners will be able to purchase property without selling leaving them with an income producing property asset when they offer their old home for rental.

Award Winning Property Management

Award Winning Property Management

Castledene Property Management was awarded as Silver in the Northern Medium Letting Agent category at The Lettings Agency of the Year Awards 2012 in association with The Sunday Times and The Times and sponsored by Zoopla.co.uk.

On Friday 25th May, over 450 leading lettings agents from throughout the UK attended a glittering ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel opposite Hyde Park where the winners of only dedicated awards for the lettings agency industry were revealed. The winners received their awards from former Olympic Champion, Sir Matthew Pinsent who wowed the audience with some incredible stories of his achievements.

The awards ceremony was the culminating event of a rigorous and thorough judging process carried out over a four-month period by a panel of industry experts who assessed initial entry submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants, which included hundreds of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises. The whole of the judging process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman; Christopher Hamer.

Now in its third year as a dedicated competition, these awards have become widely recognised as the most sought-after and difficult to win. With more entrants than ever before, over 5,000 offices were represented this year, but only the very best of the best were crowned as winners.

Castledene Property Management winners of the Silver in the Northern medium letting agent category were delighted to receive the award.  John Paul, Managing Director commented “We are delighted to be recognised at such a prestigious event. All the hard work and dedication by the staff has paid off and it shows that with the right focus and determination you can prosper despite all the doom and gloom in the media”

A website listing all the winning companies with comments from the judges as to why they won can be found at www.lettingsagencyoftheyear.com

Peter Knight, Chairman of the event organisers Estate Agency Events commented; “Landlords and tenants can be confident that the agents displaying this awards medal represent the very best of the best. Whilst there has been much talk of the need to establish minimum standards for lettings agents, I am delighted that these awards can shine a light on those firms that are exceeding standards at every level within an increasingly competitive industry.”

The main awards were sponsored by Zoopla.co.uk, whilst the specialist categories were sponsored by some of the industry’s leading suppliers including Audio Agent, ARPM, BriefYourMarket.com, Endsleigh Insurance, Imfuna, LetMC, MidWest Displays, Moneypenny, Ravensworth, Reapit Spark Energy and The Property Academy.

There are always a number of property related studies, research and data gathering exercises going on within the UK property industry and the latest research carried out by Online bank – First Direct, (a division of HSBC bank and member of the HSBC Group), has shown that some adults in the UK regret the fact that they have not yet purchased property.

The study revealed 12% of those questioned in 2011 believe they have been living in their rented property for too long.

The same proportion of individuals stated they should have attempted to purchase a property of their own during the last 12 months, while just 4% of respondents said they wished they had not bought a residential dwelling in this time.

Bruno Genovese, Head of savings at the organisation noted January can be a great time for people to start getting their money matters in order for the coming year. “The earlier people start to plan their finances and look to the future, the better their long term financial position will be.”

However you look at the data it seems clear that the largest barrier to many people wishing to purchase property is that of available finance. First Time Buyers (FTBs) need a substantial deposit to be able to afford the purchase of a home and property investors are becoming increasingly limited in their options for finance as the banks are still edgy about lending and continue to limit the number of mortgage products property investors can have at any one time.

Savvy and educated property investors who have already negotiated a BMV purchase may have structured their property purchase by borrowing the necessary funds from a Bridging Finance specialist.
