So if you’re just starting out, I really do appreciate it can be daunting trying to work out which is the best strategy to follow, because there are so many different ways to make money in property. But the problem is that there are lots different factors that you should really be considering when choosing, which is the best strategy for you. What’s the situation with regards to your available funds? Are you mortgageable? If you’re not, that’s not
necessarily a problem. Just need to be aware of it. What’s your personality type? Are you a people person? Are you far more happier sitting in front of a spreadsheet, for example? Are you looking for capital growth, cash flow or maybe a little bit of both? What’s the supply and demand like in the area that you’re
looking to invest in? Plus a load of other factors, as well. However by far the biggest factor is usually gonna be the amount of time and the amount of cash, that you can dedicate to your property investing journey. And so I wanna share
with you some strategies at a very high level
that are geared around, the amount of cash or the amount of time that you have available. However again, I reiterate this is a very high level overview of quite a lot of different strategies, just to start you thinking about which is the best strategy for you. Okay, so if you’re time
rich and cash poor, rent to rent is a great place to start. The truth is lots of property investors start out this way and can replace your income really quite quickly, and you don’t need lots
of money to get started. Deal sourcing and agent commission. Using the power of lease options to control properties
rather than buying them. Delay completion or a strategy that I call part now. Vendor financing. Using assisted sales. Or indeed any strategy
using other people’s money to fund the deals. And then you have those people that are time poor and cash rich. So, for example, if
you’re working full time, a lot of hours, but you’ve actually got some money in the bank that you can invest in property. BLAS as a strategy is
a great place to start. Freehold to leasehold. Paying finders fees to sources so that they find you really great deals. Joint venturing with developers, where you maybe fund
part or all of the deal, and then split the profits, both the cash flow and the growth, I would suggest, with the developer. Loaning funds to investors
for a fixed return. But if this is something
that interests you, please, please, please do due diligence, a lot of it, both on the developer, but also on the deal itself. There’s no excuse here. You need to understand whether that deal stacks or not. And I would suggest, you’re looking for at least two clearly
defined exit strategies. And I personally would always wanna have my money secured against something, so that if it did go pear-shaped, I can get my money out. Sadly I know of all
too many horror stories in this regards. You then have those lucky people that are both time rich and cash rich. For these people, bigger developments are obviously gonna be attractive. A strategy that I call added value. Commercial to residential. Serviced accommodation. Another strategy that I call pulse investing is fantastic. HMOs, but in particular, bigger HMOs can be brilliant. Or indeed any strategy. But if you don’t have time and you don’t have cash, can I suggest being really
honest with you here, that what you’re doing now, it simply isn’t working. And you’ve gotta make some real changes. Some fundamental changes to what you’re doing now. I would personally suggest you focus quite heavily on your education. As I’ve said many times, start with free education. There’s tonnes of it out there. Do some research. Learn how in particular to find really great deals. Because this could be a way to start building up your
pot of investible funds As an example, I once paid a sourcer 10,000 pounds, for a deal that they found and they put in front of me. And frankly, it was a fantastic deal and I would that again
and again and again, for the same deal. So maybe start there. There’s 15 different
video lessons specifically on strategy in my online
