Happy New Year!

This is just a quick post to wish everybody a Happy New Year! We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and New Year period. We took the opportunity to take the full 2 weeks off to spend time with our 2 children. Now we're back, fully re charged and refreshed. Have you set your goals for 2016 yet?  It's always amazing when you look back at previous goals and you can tick off all that you've achieved.  Even if you haven't achieved all that you set out, you'll be 100% further than if you had never set the goals in the first place. As we announced before Christmas, we have exciting news. Just Do Property is currently being re-designed and we will be re-launching our newly designed site in early 2016. Also we have a new Business Partner, successful internet entrepreneur, Joanne Elliott.  Jo will be joining us to...

Some investors want to start off with buying properties close to home and some like to buy internationally. This all depends on the investor’s strategy and personal requirements.

Advice on Buy to Let

Whenever I am asked what area of property investing investors should go into, I almost always will say go for buy to let and will relate it to business. Many investors however still do not buy the correct property to fit the criteria they should look for. If you think of large businesses and how they measure growth and performance - they will continually talk about growing by either opening new branches or shops, or taking over existing ones. So for instance a company may say "Our target is to open 30 new stores throughout the UK in 2012." Another company may say we shall consolidate our position and work on performance of existing stores. In terms of growing as a business, this is where buy to let has a huge advantage over buying to sell. If you buy to sell, you have to re-start your company each time, and...

So will July be your month?

Well thats the first half of 2011 completed! How have you done overall? Have you hit your goals? Were you 100% clear on your goals?? If you were not, and had not written down your goals it’s unlikely you will have achieved what you hoped to. Anyone that is successful in life will have clear goals and a clear idea of what they want to achieve. Whether it is success in sport or business, those that do best will have clear plans, will take decisive action, have self belief and work hard. Look at Rory McIlroy winning the US Open a few weeks ago, smashing records all through the tournament as the youngest winner ever. In the last round he admitted not only did he expect to win he also had his eye on the winning margin of Tiger Woods 15 strokes a few years earlier – now that is great...

First Lease Option – DONE

We have just completed a Lease Option on a small property in the North East of the UK.  We have known about Lease Options for a while like most investors and we’ve been on training courses and done home study courses.  However we were still a bit reticent to move forward with one. There has been all talk of whether Lease Options are legal or not and that they won’t be worth the paper they’re written on when it comes to exercise them. Due to this we decided to work with one of the UK’s leading experts in Lease Options – Mark Jackson.  We work very closely with Mark and he has been so helpful to us in providing information to the site. We went to Mark to help achieve the Lease Option element of our property goals. We believe very strongly in mentors, it can save a lot of...

The philosophy of getting to the heart of the property world sits at the centre of Just Do Property and I will endeavour to help you each month to get straight to the main issues you face as an investor – whether you are just starting or whether you have been investing for some time.

How am I going to achieve this? – break each part down into small pieces What other information do I need to have or be clear on to make this target easier to reach?
