My proven formula for a more successful refurbishment - Martin Rapley
You can’t do much in property investing without carrying out some kind of refurbishment, whether that’s a freshen up between tenants or some more significant alterations to a property you have just purchased. As with everything there is a right way and a wrong way, an easy way and a hard way and of course a profitable way and a loss making way.
- Would you like to know how the professionals carry out their refurbishments?
- What if you could run more projects at any one time.
- Imagine if disputes with builders were a thing of the past.
- What if you could make more profit with less stress and in less time.
Martin Rapley has over 30 years experience in the construction industry and has managed over 500 refurbishments and developments in that time. He has a proven formula for successful refurbishments and during this month's presentation he will introduce it to you. This formula works whether you are spending ten thousand pounds or ten million pounds so this really is a talk for property investors with all levels of experience.
ALSO... When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! – How to persist your way to property success - Rupal Patel
Nobody said investing was easy (and if they did, they’ve never done it). Investing is straight forward, but not easy. Rupal Patel and her husband Guy Brown, Top Performers in Simon Zutshi’s Mastermind program, started their property journey with one single-let, a big goal… and a lot of persistence. As they built up their HMO (Houses of Multiple Occupation) portfolio, they faced planning problems, tenant problems, mortgage problems, builder problems, and pretty much every other problem an investor could face.
So she knows it’s not easy.
But by persisting through all the setbacks and thinking expansively, they built up a property portfolio worth over 1.3 million pounds that earns over 60k in net income – and built it in only ten months.
At this month's pin meeting, Rupal will share their story: sourcing strategies, deals, hurdles, and how they overcame each one. Their “Pick ‘n Mix” portfolio, as she calls it, now includes single-lets, HMO's, and rent-to-rents sourced through multiple channels.
During Rupal’s talk, you’ll learn:
- How to respond to most challenges you’ll face
- Who you need in your “power team” to help you succeed
- How to source properties, no matter what your strategy
- DIY tips that saved hundreds
- And why you shouldn’t pour cement down your drains!
By the end of the presentation, you’ll leave knowing how to achieve your property goals, no matter how big or terrifying… and you’ll be inspired to start making more lemonade!
