How to supplement your BTL income by at least £50,000 per year

I’ve just read an incredibly thought-provoking article about just how valuable – and transferable ­– our skills as BTL investors can be…  For sometime now, I’ve been following the blog of UK Property Expert, Lyndon Forshaw, with interest – especially his approach to new build developing. In his latest free download, he reveals that the transition from BTL investing to new build developing is not as much of a leap as you may think…  As you’ve probably noticed, making genuine regular profits from buy-to-let is far, far harder than it used to be!
