    TPP484: 5 Investment Principles That Will Make You Wealthy

    These investing principles will help you prosper 

    The world is a strange place at the moment and it’s certainly a difficult one to navigate, especially in the world of investing. 

    It’s the most interesting time for not only the property market but every market out there. 

    If you joined us on the podcast last week or have managed to get your hands on Rob D’s new book you’ll know exactly where we are right now and what the financial environment of the future will look like, giving you that edge when you’re deciding what to invest in. 

    But we’re about to make it even easier for you as Rob & Rob reveal the five investment principles that will make you wealthy. If you harness these principles not only will navigating the market become easier for you, but you’ll prosper as a result. 

    So be sure to tune in – you won’t want to miss out on this. 

    In the news

    We’ve got a huge news story for you this week, in fact, it’s so big we think we’re going to have to cover it in a lot more detail over the coming weeks. 

    And there’s plenty of headlines as the government have released a white paper on how they plan to create a fairer private rental sector. 

    Now there’s a lot to dig further into but some of the biggest headlines were the end of section 21 and new legislation involving tenants and their pets. 

    Tune in and hear what the guys have got to say. 

    Hub Extra 

    Now we don’t usually give out an anti-recommendation but there’s a first for everything! 

    Rob B was excited to get his hands on the Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty, but was pretty disappointed as he didn’t think it was worth the hype. Not every recommendation is a winner but this one was a hard hitter as it’s got so many amazing reviews... 

    But don’t worry, we can’t let you walk away without a good recommendation! Thankfully Rob stumbled across Dopesick on Disney+ which follows the same story of the Sackler family and their involvement in the opioid crisis in America.

    ASK338: Is remortgaging risky? PLUS: Should I buy in an expanding village?

    ASK338: Is remortgaging risky? PLUS: Should I buy in an expanding village?

    Rob & Rob have two fascinating questions to answer this week! 

    First up is Lukas, who’s asking a question right of the back of attending a webinar (a seriously dedicated listener!). Now the market is hot, Lukas has got an opportunity to pull cash out of his properties.  

    However, he refinanced a property in the past only to have it valued under what he paid for it. As Lukas thinks there will be a crash in the next 2-3 years he’s worried about prices dropping in a crash leaving him over leveraged. 

    Rob & Rob have some excellent advice for avoiding this trap – and also some cautionary words about a crash. 

    Next up is George from Bristol, who’s in the process of buying a home to live in. It’s in a village, which isn’t something we usually discuss on the podcast, but as it’s for George to live in rather than a rental. However, he’s discovered that there is planning permission for homes that will double the size of the village.  

    So now he wants to know, will this extra supply negatively affect house prices? Rob D has seen this explosive growth in houses happen before so he’s pretty sure he knows what is likely to happen next. 

    Tune in to find out. 

    Do you have a buy-to-let or property investment related question for Rob & Rob? You could feature on the next episode by giving us a call on 013 808 00035 and leaving a message with your name and question (normal UK call rates apply).  

    Or if you prefer, click here to leave a recording via your computer instead. 

    The next question on Ask Rob & Rob could be yours.

    TPP483: The Price Of Money: How to prosper in a financial world that's rigged against you

    TPP483: The Price Of Money: How to prosper in a financial world that's rigged against you

    Do you understand the financial landscape? 

    This has to be in our top 10 MUST listen podcast episodes - and it’s a big one. 

    With 50 years of financial history to run through Rob & Rob have got plenty to cover.

    They’ll start with the HUGE event in 1971 that completely transformed everything about the world of money, what has played out ever since and how it’s going to affect what’s to come. 

    Once you understand what’s going to come next, you’ll be well on your way to better position yourself to make smart investment decisions, so you definitely won't want to miss this. 

    In the news  

    With the government leaking stories that their next announcement was going to completely transform the market we were eagerly awaiting what they had to say. 

    And to be honest, we were sort of disappointed as their huge announcement was that they’re planning on extending the right to buy scheme to housing associations. 

    What do the guys have to say about this ‘transformational’ announcement? 

    Hub Extra 

    Of course, this week's Hub Extra has to be none other than Rob D’s new book, The Price of Money. 

    If you loved this episode, you really do need to get your hands on it as it will completely alter the way you view the financial world taking you deeper than a single podcast episode ever could. 

    There’s also some additional perks for anyone that purchases it in the first week (including a mini-podcast series, the chance to have lunch with Rob and a live Q&A session!).  

    Keen to add it to your must-read list? You can purchase it right here.

    ASK337: Will a recession affect property prices? PLUS: What do you need to know about Making Tax Digital?

    ASK337: Will a recession affect property prices? PLUS: What do you need to know about Making Tax Digital?

    It’s Tuesday and that means Rob & Rob are back answering your questions! 

    First up is Ash. She’s a huge fan of the podcast and especially looks forward to the Market Updates. So, it’s no surprise that she’s noticed the economic warnings that a recession is likely in the UK this year.  

    Indeed, just yesterday leading economist Dr Gerard Lyons told the BBC: “A recession is likely in the UK and, I think, a recession is likely across Western Europe.” Which is pretty direct, especially for an economist. 

    So, Ash wants to know, what will a recession mean for property prices? Is now a bad time to buy if there is going to be a downturn? A great question, and one Rob D is especially well placed to answer, having just finished a book on how money actually works. 

    Next up is Pete, who controversially doesn’t have a question, but instead has opted to issue a warning! We’ll let Pete off this rebellious change to our format because he has an important warning about new tax rules that will affect almost all landlords. 

    Even though it’s not strictly a question, Rob & Rob still have some helpful advice on how to prepare for the tax changes so that you’re not caught out. 

    Tune in to find out.

    TPP 482: Inflation: Understand it and win big

    TPP 482: Inflation: Understand it and win big

    Inflation can change the entire way you invest 

    Inflation is the word on everyone's lips at the moment, but do you truly understand it? 

    It’s a complicated topic and with the rise in living costs it can be tempting to just try and block it out, but you’d be doing yourself a massive injustice. 

    When you truly understand inflation, you can use it to your advantage and have the opportunity to win big! 

    So, make sure you don’t miss out on this one! 

    In the news

    We couldn’t quite believe our eyes when we saw this headline... 

    When the words ‘landlords’ and ‘tax’ are in the same headline it’s almost never good news, but this one, whilst it’s just a rumour, sounds fairly positive. 

    We know we’re crossing our fingers as Property Investor Post have reported Landlords could receive tax breaks to sell up. 

    Is it too good to be true?  

    Hub Extra

    If you loved this episode, then you’re going to love this week's Hub Extra! 

    Rob & Rob revealed some pretty shocking numbers today, and we know you’ll be keen to see those numbers and graphs for yourself. 

    Thankfully, Rob D has broken everything down in just 12 minutes in our latest YouTube video. 

    But it doesn’t end there!  

    If you joined us last week, you’ll know Rob D’s new book will be landing next week! If you want to be the one of the first to get your hands on his latest book you can sign-up for notifications here. 

    We promise, it’ll be worth your while and if you purchase it in the first week, there's a few extra perks in store for you.

    ASK336: Should I invest before buying my own home? PLUS: What software do you use?

    ASK336: Should I invest before buying my own home? PLUS: What software do you use?

    Rob & Rob are back with some more listener questions! 

    Starting us off this week is Jack. 

    Jack and his partner have recently sold their first property and have moved back in with family whilst they search for their new home. 

    Of course, this means they’ve got a chunk of cash lying around at the minute and Jack is wondering what they should do with it. 

    As they’re hoping to purchase their first investment property soon should they dip into this cash and use it for a deposit to buy their investment property instead of a home for themselves? 

    Their residential home will be higher in value than any investment property they purchase, so with this in mind and the stamp duty implications do Rob & Rob think they should buy the investment property before their home? 

    Next up we’ve got another great question from Joe. 

    Joe’s a young landlord and currently has one property that he rents out as a holiday let. 

    He’s hoping to expand his portfolio, but before he does, he wants to make sure he’s prepared.  

    As his portfolio increases, he’d like to ensure he can keep it as professional as possible and easy to manage so he can crunch all the numbers, keeping a watchful eye on his finances. 

    He’s had a look on the market and has come across Lendlord. What he wants to know is, is there any magical software out there that Rob & Rob currently use and would recommend OR do they keep it classic with a good old trusty excel sheet? 

    Tune in and hear what the guys have got to say. 

    Do you have a buy-to-let or property investment related question for Rob & Rob? You could feature on the next episode by giving us a call on 013 808 00035 and leaving a message with your name and question (normal UK call rates apply).

Lots of good information!

KatherineBelle ,

The comeback will be greater than the set back!

Long time learner and listener made in London, heart in Newcastle, soul, spirit, mind and body firmly on the sands of Dubai. Your teachings from The property podcast have provided me a solid foundation upon which my analysis paralysis flounders. Every week you ignite my curiosity flame and it keeps burning till your next podcast. The ‘difficult lessons’ podcast propelled me to finally leave a five star review as not only are you both knowledgeable, giving and humble but also self-aware and spiritually aligned in a way I’d not appreciated before. Your levels of humility, self reflection and ownership are that of the so-called gurus (Eckhart - Tony Robbins) and you provide the inspirational foundation for us all to look in the mirror and face the hard truths. You’re stronger for it, I respect you more for it and this is the most powerful podcast in your collection to date. Maybe a future in the property podcast pranayama meditation and mindfulness mantras?

Plus Mark’s Dubai meet up’s and WhatsApp group management is epic!

I very much look forward to your transparent informative podcasts.
I am an expat based in the UAE awaiting to move back to the UK and get cracking with the UK property market. I have always been biased with investment in central London but now very much open to other county’s.
