The one simple truth of Property Yield vs Growth - Property Rant 020

February 8, 2017

It’s the age-old competition to know which is better Property Yields or Capital Growth, Cash flow or Capital as I say. In fact, many property salespeople would have you think they are different sides of the coin and opposed to each other. The one simple truth about both is covered in this video.

NOTE - For beginners, Gross Yield is simple the Annual Rent / Purchase Price x 100 expressed as a percentage. The debate comes when we consider Net Yield and what it includes, as this can give a wildly different outcome with most sales companies preferring a Net Yield before any finance is taken into account. Realistically, by definition, it is ‘after ALL expenses’ the fact that many expenses are variable is the cause for concern.

Deceptions of Case Studies-London - Property Rant 019

February 7, 2017

Case studies are used by many property salespeople, but how misleading are they really! Make no mistake case studies are great but only if you really understand what’s being presented (which is always the best of…) what you need to do it convert it to the… real world results.

Brett looks at three development (The Regency in South Woodford, Emerald Gardens, Wembley and High Point Village, Hayes) and this one factor which changes the results of each to a more measured result. These are live developments sold by Brett and his team.

How do we get the discounts we do? – Property Rant 018

February 4, 2017

Great question from Glenn in Southend – Discounts are the fascination of many an investor and in many ways discounts can be manufactured or mistaken, manipulated or just plainly deceived.

However, they are possible and as with all negotiation if you don’t ask you won’t get but here’s some of the main points that can turn a token discount that most developers build into the price into a substantial price differential because you are really creating a win-win for them.

Should I buy close to my home? - Property Rant 017

February 3, 2017

In short, the answer is yes and no! Yes, if the fundamentals stack up and the area is at the right stage and No, because you are likely to be too emotional about it, getting involved when you should be delegating.

There is one technology now that made the difference in my portfolio and allowed me to buy anywhere around the world (almost) without having to see the properties or know the area. This simple technology changed property so profoundly. I will qualify that statement by saying that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit.

February 1, 2017

Here's the 3 things to consider before choosing either way, sometimes it's in your interests to go along with it but here's the reasons why it may not be...

The latest in high-rise construction methods - Property Rant 014

January 27, 2017

Modern day construction now means that much of the construction is completed offsite, meaning is quicker, cheaper and in many cases a better quality. 

I was walking to work past Wembley Park, Alto Building, which has been build using pods, built offsite, and shipped onsite to be craned into position.

Brexit - Are London bankers really moving… We doubt it! - Property Rant 13

January 26, 2017

We did a quick survey of our banker clients and in every single case the attitude was "Are you joking, there is no way we are going anywhere. The kids are in school, we speak English not French or German and my husband loves shopping on the high street :) "

There's no doubt that if we leave the EU some jobs will move but will it be the carnage that they are predicting, it seems unlikely... it's more media hype than actual planning from the banks to up and leave.
