In today’s episode of the Progressive Property Podcast, Kevin shares with new investors a 7-stage step-by-step guide on purchasing property and how to know if it’s a good investment.

    Join the Progressive Property Community

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Strong rental demand. You should not invest unless you’re sure that you can tenant that property. Research the demographic, demand, value and type of property that rents well in your chosen investment area online and in-person and even survey potential tenants and competition to discover your ideal investment.


    Cashflow. You need to invest in property that pays a positive cashflow today. Calculate your rental income (turnover) minus your expenses = profit/cashflow. Cashflow will also help to protect you from a recession negatively affecting house prices.


    Can you add value? Making money is about adding value to a property. Don’t gamble with a property that cannot be improved. Always research the footprint of the property for opportunities to add value.


    Capital growth potential vs stable property prices. When prices are stable and growth is miserable you will more accurately be able to predict future capital growth potential for that property on that street.


    Local Economy. Monitor the local economy and understand weather companies will be investing in the area and creating jobs and wealth which will lead to increased rental demand and capital gains.


    Make your money when you buy. Purchase at the right price, add value and bank future profits.


    Property Management. Always purchase in an area with good management companies and never manage your investments yourself so that you can focus on finding more deals to increase your wealth.



    BEST MOMENTS
    “View other properties to get a good idea of what rental properties should look like”
    “Property is a business that needs to create you an income today”
    “If you build up cashflow generating assets, you can replace your income and cover your cost of living”
    “Equity is vanity, cashflow is sanity”
    “You cannot add value to new build properties”
    “Force the value of your property to increase wealth”
    “Add value and recycle your investment back out by leveraging the banks money”

    How to Invest £10,000 In Property & Other Assets (REWIND)

    How to Invest £10,000 In Property & Other Assets (REWIND)

    Progressive Property Co-founders Rob Moore and Mark Homer join the show to share with you the best active and passive investment strategies for high returns and regular income when investing £10,000.  Discover how to get the quickest returns on your investment for short, medium and long-term capital growth from investing in everything from property, stocks and businesses to assets such as cars, watches and commodities.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The quickest returns on an active £10,000 property investment will be when you combine your capital with effort and hard work and create a business. eCommerce is a great opportunity for investment, it’s a growing market with huge potential for scale. Platforms such as Shopify and Amazon can help you reach huge audiences quickly.
    If you’re passively investing £10,000 the safest options are most ISA’s or a portfolio of tracker funds that invest in the FTSE or American spread. Platforms such as Vanguard and Hargreaves Landsdown are recommended to use.
    The best property businesses to start for returns are Rent2Rent, Serviced Accommodation or Deal Packaging, these property strategies will give you a fast cashflow each month and ability to get a return on your investment so that you can scale your empire. However, a joint-venture with other investors is also a great way of pooling your capital together for larger projects with bigger returns.
    One of the better longer-term passive investments to make is in classic cars and watches. If you do your due-diligence using sites such as Glenmarch you can track the price of classic cars and their average price sold. With the right research on the right premium brands, these investments will increase in value year on year and you will see a positive return.

    BEST MOMENTS

    “By starting a business and by working hard you will see a better return than any other investment strategy”

    “We started our training business with £300 each”

    “Put your £10,000 into a business that you’re passionate about so that you’re motivated to grow”

    “Purchased non-depresiative items”

    “Do your own diligence on all your investments”

    My Journey as a Brand New Property Investor

    My Journey as a Brand New Property Investor

    Kevin wants to introduce you to Greg Ball, a kitchen-fitter and business owner who has just started their journey into property investing. This is a unique episode that explores those first few steps when first getting into property from someone who is in those stages right now. Greg also talks about how unique Progressive are in the industry, they don’t just teach knowledge they teach you how to change and alter your mindset to achieve success.



    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    18 months ago Greg had a kitchen business. Covid meant they had to reinvent themselves, they started again and were doing ok but it was a wake-up call that he needed alternative means of creating income.
    Greg had always wanted to be in property investing and the difficulties throughout the pandemic combined with an inspiring rent-to-rent strategy YouTube Video were the catalysts to get him started.
    Greg’s wife bought him a ticket to a property show in London and it was here that he headed to The Progressive Property stand and was inspired. Greg then went on to attend the MSOPI event and what he learnt was life changing, he knew he needed to take action, get started in the property game and change his and his families future.
    Through his kitchen business, Greg had built up quite a data base of potential investors. The first two people he approached said yes. Greg feels lucky but Kevin disagrees, he says he has done the work to build these relationships and then taken action to make use of what he has built.



    BEST MOMENTS

    “Property is going to make the life we want for ourselves”

    “You can’t look back but you can look forward and create a new future”

    “There’s no such thing as luck”

    "At the end of the day, it's a people business"

    How to Stop Damp Destroying Your Property - with Damp Sam

    How to Stop Damp Destroying Your Property - with Damp Sam

    In this episode Kevin speaks with Simon Cooper AKA ‘Damp Sam’, host of The Damp Show Podcast. Simon has a wealth of experience with Damp and the destruction it can create in properties. His knowledge is gained from nearly 30 years in the building business, including as a plasterer, gaining a HNC in building management and as a property investor.

     

    Simon and Kevin talk all things damp, Simon also tells you what you can do to reduce the risks of damp, what different types of damp there are, debunks damp myths and gives some great tips for anyone who owns property!





    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    Simon attended the MSOPI course at progressive and this was when his brand ‘Damp Sam’ was born. He then began doing YouTube videos and now racks over 500 videos, including some joint venture videos with Progressive Media.
    Good damp proofers aren’t easy to find and when you do find one, you usually just take their word for what needs doing. Damp Sam opens up the world of Damp proofing and educates people, arming them with the knowledge to understand what is actually happening beneath the damp they come across.
    Simon learnt an incredible amount from his first two house renovations. Including the support out there for renovations, asset protection, planning laws and even land registry guidelines.
    Don’t ever try and do damp proofing yourself, it’s a specialist area and you could create more difficult, and more expensive, problems.
    As a general rule, properties pre 1919 didn’t have damp courses put in. Post 1919 most properties would have put them in. But it’s important to remember that there are different types of damp courses and not one fix works for all.
    There are multiple types of damp and it’s essential that they are all diagnosed individually. Most of us have heard of rising damp and this is something that is frequently misdiagnosed, Sam frequently sees on surveys that a whole house is suffering from rising damp but this isn’t usually the case, it’s usually from multiple sources and has differing causes.
    Houses with differing ground levels within a property, for example if you have to make a step up to the kitchen, can suffer from lateral damp. It’s important these areas have waterproof systems installed to prevent damp.
    Ventilation is essential to stopping and preventing damp. All properties should have a fan in the kitchen and a fan in the bathroom, to draw moisture out of these rooms that produce a lot of differing heat levels and
    A great way to test if your internal fans are performing, is to do Sam’s £10 test. You hold a £10 note to the vent/fan and if it sucks it on then you know it’s ventilating enough.
    In some locations, such as London and Manchester, basement conversions can add a large amount of value. It’s important to weigh this up, as the cost of doing a conversion to a good standard, that won’t be prone to damp, is very expensive.
    Don’t treat mould with anything with sodium in it. This can create a bigger problem. Simon advises to always look for a mould remover that has benzalkonium in it.
    If you have a trade or are looking for a career change in the building industry, damp proofing could be you. You just need to learn it, become a specialist and you can make good money in a career that always has work. Get in touch with Simon, PCA and invest in yourself.



    BEST MOMENTS

    “There’s a lot of opportunity in the digital world”

    “There’s already somebody going to do it cheaper”

    “All these doors were shutting, I was just going to have to be the best at what I do”

    “Learn how to do this system and invest in yourself”

    REWIND: Hedge the Recession & Leverage it! Feat. Rob Moore

    REWIND: Hedge the Recession & Leverage it! Feat. Rob Moore

    The Realities of Recession 

    Rob has hijacked this episode to explain the realities of recession and the steps you can take to be prepared and thrive during a period of recession. 

    It is usually 15 years for a recession cycle and the trigger is always different, but you can take proactive steps; building networks and relationships now in preparation, listen in to hear about the realities and how you can plan to not only survive but thrive. 

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    A recession can result in fear and this can make it more challenging to understand the realities. 

    These are the realities; 
    Many great businesses are built on a recession because the playing field is levelled this includes large and significant businesses such as Microsoft and Lego. 
    Many business models thrive in a recession e.g. tax accountants and confectionary manufacturers. Progressive thrived because people were looking for something different and positive they could do as a result our training took off. 
    Your competitors are likely to stop spending money on marketing because they view it as a variable cost. This should be the last thing that should be reduced as it removes your pipeline for new business. 
    When there is a recession you need to learn how to manage your cash and finances better. If you learn to manage cash flow well now you will be even better in a recession. 
    Staff costs are likely to reduce in a recession and it is often possible to employ very talented and skilled individuals at lower salaries. 
    You can buy businesses cheaply and grow through acquisition during a recession. 
    People will have fear and they will need guidance. They will need leaders and that can be you if you manage your emotions well. 
    People think that money disappears in a recession, it doesn’t it just moves, from traditional businesses to lean businesses from old businesses to new businesses. 

     

    BEST MOMENTS 

    ‘When we saw the last recession, we had fears and concerns, but it ended up being good for our business’ 

    ‘I learned a lot vicariously from other property companies during the last recession’ 

    ‘If your competitors are spending less on marketing you have less competition for leads’ 

    ‘If you learn to manage cash flow well now you will be even better in a recession’

S podcaster ,

Great knowledge

Great information on property investments. More to the point and relevant than other podcasts on this area that I have been listening to.

Keeps it simple and to the point.

Vinbad ,

Lost me when Nigel Farage was interviewed…

False advertising. No ‘Debate on property’ in the Farage episode. Property was mentioned for approx 30 seconds right at the end. Strange to mix politics into this format. Like others have mentioned, in the rest of the episodes you can pick out some small gems of info. But seemingly less and less.

Ahmad1471 ,

Sales pitch instead of content

Overall the podcast feels like a mind-over-matter-just-believe-in-yourself-you-can-do-it-we-can-show-you-how pitch rather than discussions on the workings of property market in the UK. There are sometimes crumbs of interesting info but always end up being bait to get you to sign up to something (e.g. “if you want to know more come to our event”) rather than a long-format discussion.

The arch of most episodes seems to be a story of rags-to-riches-any-one-can-do-it which feel disingenuous and more like an interview technique. Hope it’ll change and the discussions become more frank and grounded.
