Top tips, tools and techniques that will help you turn your property into a property business - Luke Spikes
Whether your decision to invest in property was by accident or by design, the way in which you decide to manage and run it will make a big difference to whether your property ambitions are realised. Or not.
during Luke's presentation, he will bring his 33 years experience of starting and building businesses to bear on helping you start down the path of turning your property ambitions into a dynamic, high-performing property business. Whether you are just starting out and yet to acquire your first property, or you’re a property veteran with an extensive portfolio there’s likely to be a tip, a tool or a technique you can start applying tomorrow.
In this fast paced and interactive presentation, you will learn:
- Why mind set matters and how to go about fine-tuning yours,
- The importance of being clear about your purpose,
- How visualisation can help improve performance and how anyone can do it,
- That your goals and objectives can be whatever you want them to be, but to be effective they must be specific, measurable and time-bound,
- That sometimes doing less can help you accomplish more.
ALSO... How to step up from small portfolio landlord to professional developer/investor? Aythan Lewes & David Johnson
In progressing their portfolio growing as developers, many moving from small, ‘soft’, refurbishments of low value into more complex works of higher value and higher risk unwittingly. The line where one person can employ minor trades and turn around a development, to one requiring consents, due diligence, qualified professionals and other exercises which might make the venture unviable is often unclear.
What are the triggers for requiring planning consent, building warrant, asbestos surveys? When is Due Diligence essential pre-acquisition, and what level of detail should be expected? What’s the best way to get value from the contractor market? What are the pitfalls and opportunities of developing existing buildings? What are the CDM Regulations and when do they apply?
Many developers want to move on to the next level, dealing in more significant work, with more significant returns. Having the scars to show for many years dealing with developers doing this but where we were involved too late, we’re now passionate about getting to people in time and offering the right advice at the right point.
David Johnson and Aythan Lewes are Directors of GLM. David is an Architect and Aythan a Chartered Building Surveyor so able to look at development issues from different perspectives, well illustrating GLM’s key point of difference: the combination of Architecture and Building surveying under one roof, an offering unique in the Scottish market.
