    ASK280: Where in the “Northern Powerhouse” should I buy? PLUS: Should Stamp Duty be scrapped completely?

    ASK280: Where in the “Northern Powerhouse” should I buy? PLUS: Should Stamp Duty be scrapped completely?

    Welcome back to another week of Ask Rob & Rob. 

    To get us started this week we’ve got Luke.  

    He’s only 22 and already looking into investing his money into property.  

    Luke knows that he wants to invest in buy-to-let properties through a limited company but he’s unsure on where to actually buy.  

    He’s been looking into the Northern Powerhouse locations but already knows that he’s priced out of Manchester and Liverpool city centre so has been looking at surrounding towns.  

    This issus is that Luke is struggling to find the confidence to invest in these locations and is wondering if Rob & Rob have any advice on whether he should just go for it.  

    Second up we’ve got Paul calling from Dubai.  

    Thanks to all the free content from Propety Hub, Paul and his wife gained the confidence to invest and are about to complete on their third property in 12 months.  

    Pretty good going!  

    Paul is wondering if The Robs think that there’s potential for the government to scrap stamp duty altogether and try to claw back the lost revenue by tightening on capital gains tax. 

    What do Rob & Rob think? 

    Tune in to find out.

    TPP421: Grand Junction: Our million pound mistake

    TPP421: Grand Junction: Our million pound mistake

    This week we’re talking about Grand Junction

    You might remember Rob & Rob talking about their development, Grand Junction, in episode 315.

    This week that story has been shared on our other podcast, Any Other Business - because it’s important to share when things go wrong and the lessons that can be learnt. 

    And after episode 315 aired, things actually got a whole lot worse!

    Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode

    Grand Junction is a bitter pill to swallow. 

    To give you a recap, Grand Junction is a site that Property Hub Homes built in Crewe and it was the first ever development.

    By the end of the project, the business had actually lost £1 million!

    Rather than bury this experience and put it behind them. Rob & Rob have decided to treat this episode as more of a therapy session to chat through where things went wrong and what they’ve taken away from such a bad experience - and a pretty epic loss! 

    So this week we’re sharing with you the raw, emotional episode of Any Other Business. 

    And if you like this episode, there’s plenty more over on our YouTube channel. So make sure you head over to subscribe.

    ASK279: Is it realistic to do a refurb remotely? PLUS: How do I get the confidence to invest away from home?

    ASK279: Is it realistic to do a refurb remotely? PLUS: How do I get the confidence to invest away from home?

    This week on Ask Rob & Rob, we’re answering two questions on investing in property away from home.

    First up this week we’ve got Ben. 

    Ben purchased his first property around four years ago before he got the property investment bug and found Property Hub. 

    He never had any intentions of building a portfolio but now he wants to try and get as many properties under his belt as he can. 

    He’s already decided that he wants to go down the BRRR (buy, refurb, rent, refinance) route and he’s aware that this strategy is more hands-on than most. 

    Ben lives in the South East of England and knows that he’s priced out of his local area so he’s turning his attention to the north to find himself a project. 

    But how cost effective is it trying to refurbish a property remotely? 

    Will Ben’s margins be squeezed too much as he’ll have to outsource the work? So will it even be worth it in the end?

    Our second caller is Hayley from Devon. 

    She’s been listening to the podcast for a couple of years whilst saving up. She’s previously bought her own residential property and is now in the process of building her funds back up. 

    She’s aware that the south of England is pretty expensive so is looking at purchasing a property further afield where property prices are a bit cheaper. 

    But Hayley wants to know how do you actually gain the confidence to invest in an area that you have no knowledge of and don’t know anyone from there either? 

    What advice will The Robs offer Ben and Hayley this week?

    Tune in to find out.

    TPP420: April Market Update

    TPP420: April Market Update

    Here’s what the April Market Update has in store for you

    In this month’s April market update, Rob & Rob are taking a look at which area of the country is growing by over 16% right now, and where £192 million is being spent every day. 

    Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode

    There’s been a load going on in the media and in the property market, so today Rob & Rob are taking a look at the bigger picture.

    And they’re kicking off with Rightmove’s claim of us having the strongest sellers market in a decade!

    Not to mention the House Price Index that’s revealed the best performing cities to be Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Nottingham with 5% year-on-year growth. That’s been a cracking start to our 2021 hotspot predictions. 

    It’s a big update today as The Robs are covering: 
    Controversial city is UK’s property hotspot
    Boomin warned - Rightmove hits record number of visits in a day
    Households repay record £17.6bn mortgage debt
    Yorkshire Building Society first to bring back 95% mortgages
    Habito launches 40-year fixed rate mortgage
    Landbay strengthens support for trading limited companies with new BTL range
    Labour claims tenants “barely considered” during the pandemic
    Shock report: Eviction ban’s 21,000 ‘in-limbo’ section 21 notice landlords

    Make sure you tune in to find out what’s going on in the property world.

     

    Hub extra

    This week’s Hub Extra is a recommendation from our podcast producer, Dan.

    It’s another podcast called ‘The Rewatchables’. 

    Essentially they go over old movies and remind you of why you should watch them.

    They cover films such as The Terminator, Coming to America, Toy Story and Rocky. If it’s a classic film, they’ve got a podcast episode on it. 

    So if you’ve finally run out of things to watch as we’re coming to the end of lockdown, give this podcast a listen and see what classic films take your fancy.

    And to round off this week’s Hub Extra, here’s a recommendation from Rob B and it’s a film called Momento from way back in the year 2000.

    ASK278: Am I walking into a money-pit? PLUS: Should I put my savings into shares?

    ASK278: Am I walking into a money-pit? PLUS: Should I put my savings into shares?

    Welcome back to another episode of Ask Rob & Rob.

    Kicking things off this week is Lily. 

    She’s recently put in an offer on a leasehold apartment in a Grade II listed building and had it accepted.

    However, after having the structural report done, the results were shocking. Even though the property looked incredible on the outside, it clearly hadn’t been looked after on the inside.

    So what do Rob & Rob think Lily should do? 

    Should she walk away from the purchase or use the structural report to her advantage to try and negotiate a better price on the property?

    Next up we’ve got Tomas. 

    He currently owns a couple of buy-to-let properties and at the moment the income he gets from them he just sits in the bank.

    Tomas wants to save this money to buy another buy-to-let property but he’s wondering if he should leave the money in the bank, or if he should invest it elsewhere, like into shares. 

    He’s previously looked at an app called MoneyBox but wants to know if that’s a good idea. 

    So what’s the better option, leave money in the bank or invest it in shares? 

    Tune in to find out.

    TPP419: What's happening to the London property market

    TPP419: What's happening to the London property market

    This week we’re taking a look at the future of London

    Since the Coronavirus pandemic hit last year, the future of London and its property market has been a hard one to predict. 

    As it stands, the London market is all over the place. 

    Rents are falling, house prices are falling and thousands of people are leaving the capital. 

    So what does all this mean for the future? 

    We’re dedicating a whole episode to just that.

    Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode

    The media love the property market. And they love London. 

    But journalists tend to look at what’s happening in the capital and presume this is the same across the country. 

    That’s why it’s important to not be swayed by headlines. 

    Normally we steer clear of discussing London on The Property Podcast but after the past 12 months and the effects Coronavirus has had on the whole country, we felt the need to address the future of London. 

    It’s common knowledge that people are moving out of the capital and clearly tourism has taken a hit over the past year. 

    So what does that mean for you if you’re an investor in London or you were planning to make an investment there?

    Today Rob & Rob are covering:
    Why has London been hit so hard?
    Why 700,000 people are leaving London
    Rents falling and what this means
    Falling house prices
    The latest price statistics you should know

    Plus so much more!

    So, is the future of London looking bleak or is there hope on the horizon? 

    Tune in to find out.

     

    In the news

    This week’s news story comes from Mortgage Strategy and the headline reads ‘strongest sellers’ market for a decade’. 

    The article uses data from Rightmove where they’ve measured the number of enquiries per property, which is 34% higher than last year - that’s a busy month!

    This demonstrates how strong the market is right now and the supply of properties coming onto the market is certainly proving an issue.

     

    Hub extra

    This week’s Hub Extra resource is one to get you out and about.

    It’s called All Trails and this app helps you to explore your local area.

    If your usual walk/run route has got a bit stale, this is worth a look. You simply pop your local area into the app and it’ll suggest a load of new routes nearby for you to explore. 

    Perfect if you’re wanting a change of scenery this weekend.

5 star review

Excellent podcast for people with a genuine interest in property Investing.

I’ve been listening to Rob and Rob since 2016 and I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to write a review (I hang my head in shame).

Part of education in property is down to listening to the podcast, reading Robs books and using the property hub forum have given me the confidence to invest.

Your delivery is particularly refreshing in comparison to others in the industry, and the content you provide has had a net positive impact on my life.

I Particularly enjoy your episodes regarding recent news and the affects this may have on the industry or the economics aspect which is related to investing, o yh, how could I forget the 18 yr property cycle? Ha!

I’ve acquired 3 BTL’s and have recently had an offer accepted on my first commercial purchase, of which I owe a great deal do yourselves.

I wish you both the best and keep up the great content!

Forever Student

What a great podcast - you both have all the ingredients to make the best teachers. You have the knowledge, the delivery, the dedication and first hand experience. You communicate brilliantly and passionately. I have listened to every podcast in lockdown (yes, every single one).

My obsession with property started when I was just 11 years old (my family home got repossessed) and it was always a burning ambition of mine to get into property. The first house I bought was for my parents in 2009. My wife and I bought our first home in 2018 and We are now buying our first BTL to be completed very soon.

You have both reignited my hunger to build generational wealth and your podcast has been a massive motivation and much needed direction to get us to where we want to be.

Thank you so much.

Forever grateful.
MJ
