Once an agent gives you a lead you need to act quickly. First of all you need to fact find form the Estate Agent to get as much information as possible about the property, the seller and their circumstances.

Persistence - a key skill for property investors!

It is such a shame that many people give up, often just before they get the success they desire. Unfortunately, we live in a microwave society where most people seem to crave instant gratification. I have seen this so many times. I meet investors who say they tried a particular strategy and it did not work for them. On further discussion, I usually find out that what actually happened was that they “dabbled” with the strategy, failed to get the results as quickly as they would like and so gave up and moved onto the next new strategy! Property investing is not get rich quick. Instead it is get very rich slowly, as the true wealth is in the long term capital appreciation for which you have to wait. If you want the very best property deals you need to buy from motivated sellers, for whom the speed and certainty...

How to get more deals with less effort!

Find deals immediately at no upfront cost to you! By Simon Zutshi One of the quickest ways to find BMV deals is to contact other investors who are already finding motivated sellers and ask them if you can have some of their leads that they are not interested in or ones that they cannot convert. This is one of the strategies I teach on my one day “Property Investing Quick Start” seminars, because it is a NO RISK method of you obtaining leads immediately at NO UPFRONT COST to you.

Make sure your Buy to let investments stack up!

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="148" caption="Make sure your Buy to Let Investments Stack Up!"][/caption] One of the main benefits of investing in property is the significant capital gain you can make as your property rises in value over the long term. However, to benefit from the gain you need to make sure you can afford to hold the property in the meantime. Ideally you don’t want to have to support your property portfolio. Quite the opposite in fact! Your portfolio should support you financially. The rent you receive from your tenants should more than cover all the costs of ownership such that each month there is surplus cash profit left over for you to enjoy. Investors who lose money are often the ones who get it wrong because of cash flow. They can’t afford to hold their property and so have to sell which depending on the market conditions means they themselves...
