    Ben Wilson's 7 figure SW7 Project and more....

    Jeroen Hoppe interviews Ben Wilson, fellow London investor and developer. 



    We talk about his work career, transitioning from working for one of London's biggest estate agency to doing his own developments. He has a knack for developing some amazing properties, spending in excess of double 6 figures on refurbishments in order to create an amazingly high specification. I'm in awe of his developments as they are super high end, certainly a niche to corner. Ben has an amazing grasp of his market, an interview not to miss!

    06:46 When he started developing 

    10:40 Some impressive GDV figures! 

    16:00 The type of buyer that pays £1mil plus... 

    20:04 Lease extensions 

    22:30 The challenges 

    28:46 What's next after SW7?  

    30:35 What's Ben's view on the market? 

    31:40 Jeroen's predictions for the market 

    33:15 Ben is bullish?! 

    37:50 Ben's "side hustle"
