Thursday 16th June

Wow can’t believe it ….it’s been three weeks since I last updated this Blog and what an exciting three weeks it has been! I like everyone else can be guilty of running so fast, that I forget to actually look back, sit down and assess what I’ve actually achieved.

So here goes, writing this blog entry it has made me actually stop and think ‘what have I done?’

In a nutshell ….Alton Property Partners is building momentum. This three week period has seen 1 x investor House Exchange, 1 x investor house Complete and 1 x investor house nearly ready for Exchange finally after waiting weeks and weeks for Nottingham City Council to confirm that they didn’t want to buy the house back themselves (this has been painful!!). The refurbishment team are already hard at work at the first house and they are well on track to have the house turned round by the end of this week. The Letting Agent has started to market the property and I know there is already interest.

On top of this one of my existing investor families, (whom purchased their first property with me in October 2010), decided they are now ready to increase their portfolio. So having understood their up to date requirements I’ve identified an ideal property. Their offer has been accepted and now I am busy moving the sale through the pipeline. They have already asked me to start looking for their 3rd house!!

I am also very excited to have started working with another busy professional who already has one BTL in London, but doesn’t have the capacity based on his full time career to take this any further. I know I am going to get a great sense of achievement delivering the results for him, particularly as he has chosen to work with me as he knows gross rental yields of 10% – 12% are just not possible in London where he lives.

Add to this 2 nights in a tent, where it was so cold I had to wear 4 tops, my tracksuit trousers and socks to sleep in, a fantastic 4 day Public Speaker Training course with Andy Harrington, a stint up on stage at Progressive’s Property Buying Frenzy at the weekend and the writing of an article which is shortly to be published in a well know property magazine and you can see these three weeks has indeed been action packed!!

Here’s to the next three!
