Join the Progressive Property Community




  1. Strong rental demand. You should not invest unless you’re sure that you can tenant that property. Research the demographic, demand, value and type of property that rents well in your chosen investment area online and in-person and even survey potential tenants and competition to discover your ideal investment.

  2. Cashflow. You need to invest in property that pays a positive cashflow today. Calculate your rental income (turnover) minus your expenses = profit/cashflow. Cashflow will also help to protect you from a recession negatively affecting house prices.

  3. Can you add value? Making money is about adding value to a property. Don’t gamble with a property that cannot be improved. Always research the footprint of the property for opportunities to add value.

  4. Capital growth potential vs stable property prices. When prices are stable and growth is miserable you will more accurately be able to predict future capital growth potential for that property on that street.

  5. Local Economy. Monitor the local economy and understand weather companies will be investing in the area and creating jobs and wealth which will lead to increased rental demand and capital gains.

  6. Make your money when you buy. Purchase at the right price, add value and bank future profits.

  7. Property Management. Always purchase in an area with good management companies and never manage your investments yourself so that you can focus on finding more deals to increase your wealth.

“View other properties to get a good idea of what rental properties should look like”
“Property is a business that needs to create you an income today”
“If you build up cashflow generating assets, you can replace your income and cover your cost of living”
“Equity is vanity, cashflow is sanity”
“You cannot add value to new build properties”
“Force the value of your property to increase wealth”
“Add value and recycle your investment back out by leveraging the banks money”



Kevin McDonnell is a Speaker, Author, Mentor & Professional Property Investor. He is an expert when it comes to creative property investment strategies. His book No Money Down: Property Invest talks about how to control and cash flow other people’s property to create financial freedom.

JVs: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Protecting yourself and your money.
'Understanding JV's. The good, the bad and the ugly'. The term 'joint venture' is often used without much - if any understanding of what it means, or might mean, legally.  It can often be used as a 'sexy' way to draw in investors to part with their money.  I'm completely flexible but have in mind a conversation geared around investors in property, what and how things can go wrong- with a smattering of high level examples from Alex' work acting for investors (including HNW individuals, international investors and lenders) in disputes nationally, and his views on how to avoid them ever happening.  JV's can take the form of multiple legal wrappers and outcomes can range from being a great way to bring different people/experience/input to the table (time, money, knowledge); with positive outcomes ('the good'); where something unforeseen happens (no profit, only loss; market changes; wrong wrapper for tax etc) 'the bad'; or those always geared around ripping off the investor ('the ugly').' ac@helix-law.com Alex initially trained as a Barrister (non-practicing) before cross-qualifying as a specialist commercial and property litigation solicitor. Prior to becoming joint owner of Helix Law in 2013, he was Head of Litigation and one of the youngest partners in the region in a large firm based in Eastbourne. Comfortable and experienced litigating against large international City firms, he has successfully resolved complex commercial and property disputes for clients ranging from large international businesses and property investors to individual business people.  Alex is an accredited commercial mediator and he is increasingly asked to advise on contracts, risk, dispute avoidance and exit strategies. He also continues to develop and innovate our products, services and funding arrangements with the aim of making specialist litigation services more transparent and accessible.

How To Invest In The UK From Overseas
Money comes from all over the world, so why should those outside of the UK be restricted in investing into one of the world's most valuable markets?   In this show, Simon talks you through how you can invest from abroad, or use money from overseas, to build your portfolio of properties, and make the most of your UK-based property adventure!   KEY TAKEAWAYS   It's imperative that you have the right financial advice from someone who understand the local tax in your area of investment, It's also wise to be in contact with a mortgage broker there, as well as estate agents and property sourcers. The first step is to set up a UK company. You can buy a property in your own name, but this is very difficult in terms of finance and taxation. Make sure you have a valuable network of managers who can manage your property for you. Managing yourself is not a valuable use of your time, and will cost you far more in the long run. No one knows when the market will bottom out. It's always best to look at the deals you like and decide for yourself when time is right. Is it going to make you money? If the answer is yes, then pull the trigger - but don't wait too long!   BEST MOMENTS   'I've actually purchased several properties that I've never actually visited' 'You need people on the ground that you can trust, and who can do a lot of the legwork for you' 'It's worth having a diversified portfolio. It's always good to spread your risk' 'Now is always a good time to invest'   VALUABLE RESOURCES If you are an overseas investor and want to learn more about investing in the UK who not join Simon for some live online training here:www.PropertyInvestingInTheUK.co.uk To access the training mentioned in this show go to www.propertyinvestingintheuk.co.uk   To access more free Creative Finance Strategies visit www.creativefinancetraining.co.uk    Property Magic: How to Buy Property Using Other People's Time, Money and Experience by Simon Zutshi   To find your local pin meeting visit: www.PinMeeting.co.uk and use voucher code PODCAST to attend you first meeting as Simon's guest (instead of paying the normal £20). iphone:  http://bit.ly/pinAPP1 Android https://bit.ly/pinAPP2   Register at Mindset For Property at - www.mindsetforproperty.co.uk    ABOUT THE HOST   Simon Zutshi, experienced investor, successful entrepreneur and best-selling author, is widely recognised as one of the top wealth creation strategists in the UK.

7 Ways to Build Wealth From Scratch
If you’re looking to build wealth from scratch without any experience and understand the mindset needed to be successful with investments and in business, this episode is for you. Rob shares 7 lessons on how to earn more money quickly, benefit from the power of compounding interest, leverage the opportunities of asset investing and become responsible for your money and investments.   Check out Rob’s supporter Facebook programme for more exclusive updates, lessons and courses on entrepreneurship, business, mindset, money and more. bit.ly/Robsupporter   KEY TAKEAWAYS   Be fully responsible for your money and your investments. The quicker you understand how money works, taxes, mortgages, profit and losses and economics the quicker you will earn more money. Never spend more than you earn. Always be aware of your income and your outgoings, in one month it might not seem like a loss but compounded over 20 years just spending 10% more than you earn could put you in 1000% more debt. Invest 10% of your earnings or more. Compounded momentum of investments earning 5% ROI, compounded and re-invested over time will generate you a pension or retirement fund. Begin with low-risk investments and upscale your risk as you become more educated. Save and never touch 10% of your earning. On a capital sum, you should sustainably be able to earn a 5% return with the goal of your savings returns eventually replacing your income. Invest in assets that produce income and live off of the income and not the capital from the asset. To drastically increase your wealth and live for free you should aim to use the income and leverage from asset investment that generates a positive return to purchase your depreciating liabilities such as cars etc. With property, your investment income can pay for a car loan and therefore you end up with an appreciating asset and a car. Start and scale a business and focus on sales and marketing. A business can give you a higher return than any other asset class as you can leverage your sweat to sell product and reinvest back into your businesses sales and marketing to grow.   BEST MOMENTS “Take full responsibility for managing and mastering your money” “Never spend more than you earn” “When you invest 10% of your income over time you will feel the power of compounding interest” “SANT - Save & Never Touch” “Sometimes it’s best to invest more capital to get appreciation rather than depreciation”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter MONEY BOOK   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

TPP401: What are property funds and why do they attract billions of investment? (Plus: CGT bombshell?)
What are property funds and how do they work? Investing through a property fund allows you to invest in a property without having to fully buy it or go through any of the rigmarole that comes with buying a property. Sounds like a win win situation right? We’ve managed to go 400 episodes without talking about property funds.  Until now.  You might be listening to this thinking that you’re never going to have the funds to be able to invest in property, but you’d like to make a better return than leaving it sat in the bank.  Or maybe you’re already a property investor and are getting a bit fed up with how much time and effort it takes and would like something a bit easier. Well, a property fund might just be the thing you’re after. Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode There’s a lot to get into on today’s episode to give you as much information as possible on property funds.  So, just to give you an overview, here’s what Rob & Rob will be discussing today: What is a property fund? Why invest in a property fund? What types of property can you invest in? Why not to invest in a fund What are the types of property funds? How to pick a fund This could well be an eye opener into a whole new world of investment opportunities for you.  But like with any type of investment there’s pros and cons to both. So we recommend listening to this episode a couple of times and doing some further research to really get a solid understanding of property funds.   In the news Over the past number of years landlords have been hit time and time again by changes to taxes, meaning they pay out more and more each year.  After so many changes you’d think it was about time that landlords were given a break and nothing else could rock the boat.  Well, enter Rishi Sunak and his increase to capital gains tax.  Now these are proposals and nothing has changed just yet. However if this does come into play, the government wants capital gains tax to be in line with income tax bands.  There’s still plenty to come out about this and whilst it doesn’t specifically target landlords and property investors, it wouldn’t be a good result for any investor. So, The Robs will be covering this in depth on the next Market Update when more has unfolded on the topic.   Hub extra This week’s Hub Extra resource is another podcast for you to listen to. Now Rob B has only listened to one episode so far but he highly recommends it based on that episode.  The podcast is called Boldt Flavours and it’s from the founder of Gousto, Timo Boldt.  On the podcast he interviews different people every week and in the first episode he interviews Joe Wicks.  You might be surprised that this episode wasn’t based on food, or cooking or exercise, but about how Joe Wicks grew his business.  And you know how much we love a business success story.   Let’s get social We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future - if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do.

When you feel challenged and disrupted you’re not seeing the upside, but when you can change your mindset to view the positive in the negative you will be able to reinvent yourself and earn more money in your industry.   The ability to reinvent yourself is not reacting to what happens, it’s already having that skillset in your armoury so that when something drastic happens you have a model and a process to combat it with.
