How Do People Do Amazing Property Deals With Such Success?

What Price Would You Place On

Property Investment Success?

Successful people spend a fortune on their education – not only when they go to university, but afterwards too. No matter what job or profession you’re in, education will always be major part of progress and success.

If you’re employed by a company, many of these training sessions can often be funded by the employer, but if you’re self-employed, any courses or educational opportunities taken are done with the aim of getting something that will benefit your business and bottom line at the end of it, as well as continued personal development (CPD).

Property investing should be viewed in the same light.

If you go off and start purchasing investment properties as you would your family home, then there’s a fair chance you’ll either lose money on every property deal or tie up more of your finances than you need to, and that is where education can play a key role.

2012/13 UK Property Hotspots Revealed by Halifax

2012/13 UK Property Hotspots Revealed by Halifax

New data from UK mortgage lender, Halifax, reveals that currently 9 out of the top 10 UK property hotspots are in the South of England.

The mortgage lender analysed data from across the UK and compared the findings with the actual size of property (in square metres) to find the best performing places in the country.

The borough of Westminster in central London is the most expensive area per square metre for property investment, however, it is also the most cramped. Properties in this London borough can cost an average of £7,586 (GBP) per square metre and on average are also the smallest in the UK at approximately 71 m2.

The Halifax data also found that St Albans was the next most expensive area, although property costs are significantly less at an average of £3,227 (GBP) per square metre. However, this is still almost double the national average of £1,668 (GBP).

Martin Ellis, Housing Economist at Halifax, said: “House price per square metre is a useful measure for house price comparison because it helps to adjust for differences in the size and type of properties between locations. Westminster has the most expensive prices in the UK on a price per square metre. Interestingly, it also has the smallest average property size in the country. Not only has Westminster got one of the highest population densities per square kilometre among UK cities, but it also has a large proportion of properties that are flats”.

Edinburgh is the only UK city in the top 10 that is outside of the South of England, with Oxford, Winchester, Chichester and Cambridge all above it as among the most expensive areas.

York was named as the most expensive city in the North of England at £1,830 (GBP) per square metre.

A leading mortgage lender has stated that on average UK residential property values are now 1.5% lower than a year ago. 

Average property prices in the UK slipped to £165,738 (GBP) down by 0.6% in June this year, compared with May 2012.

Robert Gardner, Nationwide Chief Economist, said: “The slightly weaker trend we’ve observed since March is unsurprising, given the difficult economic backdrop, with the UK economy dipping back into recession at the start of the year and few signs of a near-term rebound. Part of the weakness in property prices may also relate to the ending of the Stamp Duty holiday in March. However, the outlook for UK house prices remains highly uncertain.”

The perceived drop in property values is good news for property investors who negotiate directly with distressed property vendors, allowing them to ease the property owners financial burdens without breaking the bank.

Nationwide also estimate that over 200,000 First-Time Buyers (FTBs) saved around £1,800 each reaping maximum benefit from the Stamp Duty break. 

Popular property portal – Rightmove reckon first-time buyers are ‘surprisingly’ upbeat and that there are now more prospective first-time buyers than at any time over the last three years, with almost three in ten people expecting to buy property in the next 12 months.

However, the biggest concern for 33% is about raising a deposit, although this proportion is down from 42% a year ago.

Miles Shipside, director of Rightmove, said: “The results come as a welcome surprise, and hopefully, this three-year high in intending first-time buyers will come to fruition. It seems that some five years into the property market downturn, more people are beginning to get their heads and wallets around the new rules of first-time home ownership, though they still face some testing challenges.”

Being successful in any business takes skill, dedication and determination and a good dose of sound business advice from key sources. At least that is what my old careers tutor used to say, and he wasn’t far wrong.

Business models built on the knowledge and experience of successful people in the same industry, who have already encountered the pitfalls and worked through the problems, can often propel a new company to dizzying heights within a short space of time. However, are the business owners up to the job?

If you want to get fantastic results from any business such as property investing you need to treat it like a business to begin with. Many Buy To Let landlords don’t and they are the ones currently struggling.

Look around at who the really successful people are in the industry, people such as Simon Zutshi, Founder of the PIN network, Rob Moore & Mark Homer from Progressive Property, Parmdeep Vadesha from Property Tycoon Network among others are leading the way at educating property investors right now, teaching new skills to seasoned and novice investors enabling them to improve their businesses and increase their property portfolios.

Many so called property investors just dabble in property, treating it more like a hobby and they don’t get great results, but if you are more professional about business you will get professional results.

The challenge is many property investors have never been business owners and so don’t know what to do or where to go to meet the successful people that they need to talk to.

Property investors and business owners need to develop key skills that include marketing the business, whether that is to find tenants, finding motivated sellers, or attracting clients, in order to reach the top of their particular niche in the market.

Education is the key and landlords and would be property investors need to expand their knowledge and learn alternative investment strategies in order to profit from property in the current financial climate.

Get along to a UK property networking event near you to find out more about developing new business skills and meet the successful people you need to talk to as well as mixing with like minded people who share the same passion for profits.

UK Residential Property Prices Slip Again

UK Residential Property Prices Slip Again

New research by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has revealed that the revival of the UK residential property market has apparently run out of steam following the end of the stamp duty holiday for first-time buyers in March this year.

The RICS report found that 19% more chartered surveyors observed residential property price decreases than increases in April 2012 and 17% of them predicted further slippage of UK residential property prices in the near future.

6% of chartered surveyors also reported a drop in residential property sales as opposed to a rise, the first time this has happened since September 2011.

Peter Bolton King, Housing spokesman for RICS, stated that the results of the research are far from surprising: “With the recent surge in activity brought on by March’s stamp duty holiday coming to an end, it is unsurprising to see that prices across much of the country are continuing to fall”.

Many of the negative forecasts for UK residential property in the near future are based on the fact that many of property sales would ordinarily have happened throughout the year, but the scramble to push through deals and invest in property before the end of the stamp duty holiday in March has seriously affected the annual pattern of residential property sales.

With UK residential property prices on the slide once again it is time for property investors to keep the market afloat whilst snapping up property bargains across the country. Wales and the West Midlands have experience the largest drops in residential property values, so these areas could see heavy interest from investors.
