    Richard Stone has spent most of his life in construction but in the last few years, he decided to start to build his property portfolio. He joins Kevin to talk about his property journey and what he has learnt along the way.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    It was after beginning his property journey that Richard realised he needed training and education in Property. This is when he started attending Progressive Property courses, including Progressive's flagship even MSOPI, to learn how he could best utilise his knowledge and skillset.
    It all starts with the client and although Richard has tons of hands-on construction experience, he didn’t know how to find and retain clients and raise money. This is what he learnt with Progressive.
    You don’t need your own money to get started on serviced accommodation, you just need to learn how to raise capital.
    Focus on the feedback you get in the right places, not all advice is good advice. Your clients will tell you if you are doing the right things.
    There are endless opportunities in the world if you have the right mindset.
    Now is always the right time to buy property.
    Being around the right people on your property investing journey is essential. To help guide you but also to support you.

    BEST MOMENTS  

    “ A lot of it isn’t skillset, it’s mindset”

    “There’s a difference between what you think is right and what’s actually right”

    “I reignited my passion for education”

    “Your own money actually holds you back”

    “Poor people get their advice from family, friends and neighbours, wealthy people get it from people who have done it before them”

    “You don’t know what you don’t know”

    The Energy Price Crisis Will Change Investing Forever

    The Energy Price Crisis Will Change Investing Forever

    The energy price crisis is going to change the world of investing forever. Listen in to this episode with Kevin as he explores why this is but also why there is likely to be more opportunities than ever. Kevin also talks about his recent issues with mould, what corrections and changes are likely coming in the property market, what he believes Liz Truss’ policies will be in the coming months and more in an Ask Me Anything.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 


    The billions printed in the pandemic are why we are in the situation we are now. The money Liz Truss is printing now will have minimal impact, both negative and positive.
    Interest rates are rising but they are still historically low.
    The cost of money is only relevant is you are paying more than you are making.
    If your property is already making a profit, don’t worry about if the government brings in rent freezes particularly if you are on a fixed rate mortgage.
    The coming years are going to create the most wealth-generating opportunities seen in years. You need to focus on growth and investing in your mindset and knowledge.
    You could start off in property and go straight into serviced accommodation but it’s worth remembering this isn’t helping solve any housing issues the country is currently facing.
    Time, knowledge and money are what you need for buy to let, however you don’t need all three to get started. There are lots of creative ways you can raise finance if you have time and knowledge for example.
    When there is a monetary crisis people obviously look to save money, This is why you typically start to see the lower end of the market rise in demand.
    Always be open-minded to opportunities and deals in property.

    BEST MOMENTS  

    “ 180 billion will do nothing to fix this country”

    “Interest rates now are now high”

    “The government does not have enough housing stock”

    “Money is not necessarily the issue for most people, people will still want to buy those properties but will there be a correction in the market?”

    “There’s a lot of hatred out there for landlords”

    “The most important part of the transaction is the person selling the house”

    “When you go out there looking for deals, suddenly you realise they are everywhere”

    How to Fix The Housing Crisis

    How to Fix The Housing Crisis

    Kevin has been investing in property for 18 years, has built up a multi-million pound business and uses creative property investment strategies.

    In this episode, Kevin reacts to a  recording of Judge Rinder on Good Morning Britain about landlords. Kevin gives his take and insight on this video and gives his thoughts on how we can actually tackle the Housing Crisis in the UK.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Yes, there are rogue landlords out there. But Kevin, his team and the landlords Progressive Property train are not part of them. In fact, they invest in run-down, sub-standard properties and make them better for future tenants of theirs as well as bringing properties back into use.
    Section 21 can get abused by some landlords. But Kevin has never done this, he wants his tenants to treat the property as their home. We have to think about the other side, section 21 is there for bad tenants, for the ones who don’t look after the property, who don’t pay on time. There are also many landlords out there who aren’t investors, that just have one property-when that tenant doesn’t pay or creates expensive repairs it can leave them in financial ruin.
    There is a lot of unnecessary red tape and it actually becomes an obstacle for tenants and landlords when there are issues to be solved.
    Unfortunately there are many tenants that don’t look after a rental property in the same way they would if they owned it. This is especially demonstrated when it comes to preventing damp. Not opening windows, not wiping down the shower and drying clothes incorrectly can cause damp issues, simple things that could be avoided.
    The types of property Kevin buys/invests in aren’t properties that would appeal to first time buyers. He isn’t creating competition for them as they wouldn’t purchase what he does, without landlords like him they simply wouldn’t be bought.
    Everything has to be in balance. There needs to be robust legislation that supports both landlords and tenants.
    To solve the housing crisis the country needs to become creative with solutions, the government, councils and landlords need to work together:-We need better accommodation to solve the housing crisis. There are plenty of buildings out there, it’s about bringing them back into use and to a good enough standard. The council could work with landlords to bring these back into use.-We need a more streamlined way of the government/councils paying landlords when tenants cannot. Universal credit has made this much harder.
    Capping rents would only harm tenants in the long run. Proper landlords reinvest their money back into the property creating a higher standard of living accommodation.

    BEST MOMENTS

    “Don’t tar every landlord with the same brush, don’t make every landlord a rogue landlord, because not every landlord is”

    “Maybe he’s got a hidden agenda”

    “They create damp in the properties”

    “Everything has got to have balance”

    “The private investors are the ones that can solve this problem”

    How I Buy Property Via Auctions

    How I Buy Property Via Auctions

    In this week’s episode, Kevin talks about all things auctions. Listen to Kevin talk about how you can still make money with auctions, what to look out for and how you can avid expensive mistakes.

    Discover how tens of thousands of ordinary brits are quietly getting rich with minimum investment!bit.ly/Podcast-MSOPI

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Making good money on auctions is all about knowledge and education. You need to have a good overall understanding of property investing and be educated around what to look for.
    Relationships are important to make deals with estate agents. With auctions, there’s no relationship needed, in this sense it’s easier and requires less work.
    With auctions, you know what other people were willing to pay. As long as you are educated it’s then easy to see if you have offered the right price or not.
    There’s 200+ auction houses around the country, just because someone has been to one and it wasn’t good or was expensive that doesn’t mean there aren’t deals to be had in other places.
    Keep things financial, don’t let emotions have an influence over your price and use your knowledge to get great deals.
    Kevin never makes early bids. He waits until people stop bidding as much and then offers. Sometimes he even offers post-auction if there have been no bids. If you can read the room properly then you can offer directly with the owner and use it not selling at auction as leverage. 

    BEST MOMENTS “Auctions are phenomenal now”

    “With right move it’s already too late”

    “If you bid too early you’re adding fuel to the fire'

    How To Network Like A Pro

    How To Network Like A Pro

    Kevin McDonnell talks us through the Dos and Don’ts of successful networking. Networking events can be daunting and can be unsuccessful and time-consuming if you don’t make that unforgettable first impression! Tune in today to find out how you can grow your network, make a lasting impression, attract JV partners and property investors and ensure that every networking event is a success!  

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 

    Where Can You Network? 

    There are many places you can go to network. Progressive property run about 40 property networking events all over the country, meaning it is likely there will be a PPN event near you. However, it is not only about networking events, but it is also a great idea to attend business networking events both locally and in different parts of the country. Have in your networking plan, to attend other types of events as well as events in other locations around the UK and the rest of the world that can help build your power team.  

    What To Do At Networking Events?  

    Have a clear plan before you attend, don’t just attend a networking event to listen to guest speakers. You should be bringing business cards to the events, you need to have a way that you can capture people's attention. As well as handing out your business cards, make sure you collect other people's contact details.  

    You want to be listening to others, more than you are speaking about yourself. Learn a little bit about people, keeping your eyes and ears open to find the person who is looking to invest.  

    If you do get the chance to tell people a little bit about yourself, keep it to a minimum and have what's called an ‘Elevator Pitch’, practice this at home before you attend. Focus your pitch on the features and benefits of working with you.  

    Make a list of people you need to help fulfill your power team, and go to the networking events to specifically source these people.  

    -A key part of attending networking events is the number of people you speak to. You don’t need to spend the entire event talking to just one or two people, you will be missing out on speaking to the majority of people at the event. The main goal of each networking event you attend should be to collect as many people’s contact details as possible.  

    Dress well when you attend a networking event. Don’t give people the opportunity to have a negative impression of you based on the way that you present yourself.  

    Give people the opportunity to talk about themselves, only speak about yourself if you’re asked. Ask them, how you can help them and what they’re looking for that can be mutually beneficial. Do not try to sell them things within the first few moments of meeting them.  

    BEST MOMENTS 

    “If you really want to scale your networking business, if you want to do a lot of property deals, then you’re going to need the help of other people” 

    “A wise person once said, ‘you’ve got two ears and one mouth, you should move them in the proportion”  

    “People want to work with people that they know, like and trust”
