7 Steps To Stacking A Property Deal
Play • 16 min

This week, Simon shares the seven steps that will help you swiftly stack a property deal, including property valuing, why interest-only mortgages are better, and the formulas you need to see if the numbers work for you.


  • Far too many people spend far too long agonising over whether a deal stacks or not. If they stick to the simple formula, they'll be able to turn deals around very quickly indeed.
  • Based on a purchase price, we need to look at how much of a mortgage advance we can get from a lender, typically around 75%, and specifically look for interest-only offers.
  • Cashflow is the profit less all the expenses. We can approximate the costs by working out the minimum rent required.
  • Make sure you research effectively and determine the correct market rent for your type of property in your area. This is crucial in determining the cashflow. 


'This is top level due diligence'

'For every £20k you borrow at 6% interest per annum, it'll cost you £100 in interest every month'

'This is a really good approximation of those other costs'

'We need to understand how much money we need to put in to achieve that cashflow'
