This week we’re sharing 20+ ways to become a property millionaire.
Hang on – if we know 20 ways to achieve that, why’ve we held out until episode 89? Well, the title of this episode is actually taken from an article in The Telegraph which we go through point-by-point.
Like most articles in the property press, there’s some sensible advice mixed in with a fair amount of dangerous nonsense. We pick out the parts we agree with, explain our issues with those we don’t, and – at the end – share a couple of ideas not in the list which could be the true ways to become a property millionaire…
Along the way, we linked some points back to some old episodes of the podcast for related further listening:
- Episode 61 for the benefits of flats versus houses
- Episode 31 for how to research any property investment
- Episode 87 for the principle of adding value
- Our buy-to-let tax basics course for more on being tax-efficient
- Episode 28 on investing from afar
- Episode 11 on building your property dream team
- Episode 34 on investing overseas
- Episode 69 and Episode 71 on the 18-year property cycle
Crikey we’ve done a lot of talking!
Resource of the week
There’s a wealth of brilliant information on video sites like YouTube – but isn’t it annoying that can only watch them when you’ve got an internet connection? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could watch videos on your phone while you’re commuting underground or sitting on a plane?
Well, there are some handy browser plugins available that allow you to download online videos to watch offline (which also serves to save them in case they suddenly get taken down).
If you use a different browser, try Googling the name of the browser plus “video downloader” to see what comes up.
News this week
Hooray – landlords aren’t terrible people after all! According to a new survey, the majority of tenants rate their current landlord as “excellent” or “good”.
Both sides of the tenant/landlord equation still have plenty of gripes (as elaborated on in the article), but it’s nice to have some positive landlord news for once and recognise that the majority of us are doing our best to provide a great service.
This week’s mentions
Last week we launched The Property Hub Summits – a series of 4 in-person mastermind-style events we’re going to be running in 2015.
Our first event in January sold out almost instantly, but at the time of recording there were some places still available for our second event in March. To find out more and see if places are still left, this is the link you need!
