Deals


Another quick property blast...

Just been thinking of the 'other things' aka costs involved in buying a property including lawyers fees...

Made me think about the 'other things' I can potentially add to anyone I do a property deal with... or even talk to quite a bit...

I can certainly give share advice... been doing that for 20 years with 180,000 views on my share articles worldwide... how much is that worth...

For the right kind of person that could be worth TENS OF THOUSANDS of pounds...

Also one other area I could help in on a smaller scale... and I have put together a great offer for those people I like in this area... if anyone offered me a similar deal in property... well I'd be biting their hand off and already own many properties already!!

Makes me think though... how many people see the value in these things... I can tell if they do or they don't... doesn't kill me either way if they do these things...

But those who DO get it... please calculate this into your evaluations when offering me property deals :) Still want to do some soon.

Property


Getting a lot of offers of properties from these groups which is good!

I read them all- the ones I give most time to are ones in West and South Yorkshire though. After years of research I am ready to pull the trigger... the really good ones I will get experts to look at too AFTER I've put plenty of time into researching them.

Oh and property with tenants or even HMOs already occupied... YES... these are good...

Obviously though I would go and see the property and interview the tenants- I wouldn't take any 'problem' tenants.

Greene King plc and Barratt Developments



I talk to a lot of people about shares... even had a company tweet me about it recently... so let's look at a previous article and expand..

Why I think Greene King plc and Barratt Developments Plc could offer share price growth potential

I’m feeling optimistic about the prospects for Greene King plc (LON:GNK) (GNK.L) and Barratt Developments Plc (LON:BDEV) (BDEV.L)
September 11, 2017


At the time of writing, Greene King plc (LON:GNK) (GNK.L) is trading at 557p after a 15.71% fall on Friday. Could this pub giant give my wealth an uplift?



Instinctively, I feel that the market may have over reacted to Greene King’s trading statement. Like for like sales were down 1.2% compared to a sector decrease of 0.7%. The company also blamed the weather for sales. In addition, I think there could be some problems with UK discretionary consumer spend which may hurt the company’s overall performance in the near term.

Fundamentally, the share looks attractive to me now. The dividend yield is 5.98% and the good news is it is relatively well covered. Cover was 2.13 for 2017 and 2.18 for 2016. There has also been consistent dividend growth over the years, with a rise of over 3.5% for 2017 and 7.73% for 2016.

So, the shares could well be worth adding to my portfolio after their recent fall. After all, the drop has pushed Greene King to levels last seen in around 2012. Even three months ago the shares were trading around 750p. The year high is 805p. I think that while its performance may have disappointed many investors, it could be a solid long term buy and hold option for me.

Another share with UK consumer interest in Barratt Developments Plc (LON:BDEV) (BDEV.L). This company delivered strong results recently with a 39% increase in the ordinary dividend and a bumper bonus special dividend of 17.3p per share.

I continue to hold a decent amount of this company in my portfolio. At the time of writing the shares are trading at 601p after a 1.4% fall on Friday. The visible dividend yield is now 4.07% but much more when the special dividend is taken into account. The PE is 11.04. A strong ‘hold’ in my view, and one for my watchlist.



So Greene King has been doing very well overall- I'm a real talk share writer unlike most others out there... I'm up over 40% so far plus dividends...

BDEV I sold at 606p... but it's on my watchlist to buy again at the right price.

Blasting this out at 2:30... AM...

So yeah I haven't been writing down daily goals... because sometimes writing can be a form of procrastination...

But I have been DOING them...

Called about 13 estate agents... all quite friendly and all actually women... they should make themselves a bit easier to find on LinkedIn though... having done a lot of sales jobs I know that good sales people are at least proactive... VERY good ones are VERY proactive...

Have the opportunity to view 2 potential projects today with my rich colleague... might go for the learning experience but being directly honest I want a stake in them to be really interested as I have many ways of making money ONLINE...

I have plenty of money and plenty of money coming in though... hundreds of pounds in dividends and other things...

So yeah... just selecting some easy doable things to do each day and doing them!

UPDATE

Have had lots of likes and views on this so here's more content...

My share mentor Chris Bailey is fond of telling me what to do... and currently he is telling me I have TOO MUCH CASH...

Ha well you can never have enough cash... but atm my percentage of cash is too high.

Fact is though I am ready to POUNCE on the right opportunity... in shares it's as easy as clicking a button with property it's more complex... but if I see a GREAT deal I will do it...

From all the research and people I've chatted to I know there are many deals where basically people put no money in (apart from perhaps lawyer fees)... but the thing about me is I could easy buy a house outright in cash if needed...

Would prefer to get finance though... as a shareholder in banks I know they can basically get money for free...

Anyway from viewing two plots of land yesterday and thinking about things there are actually a lot of different groups of people I need to get to know more... probably should spend more time networking with builders and finance people... also lawyers in time.

THANKS for all the likes... let's win together!

Why I Want to Make Money in Property


Blasting this out early morning before work...

Quick article about WHY I want to make money in property...

First thing really is... to make money. Property is a good solid investment which will always go up over time provided you buy it at the right price. Plus you can add value to it by improving it. It's quite easy to get finance for a property even though I could buy several outright if I wanted to.

Then hitting my second goal- it's possible to meet high quality people through property and I've already met quite a few. A power team is needed and I need to get good relationships with cleaners, builders, lawyers and other property investors. Already doing quite well with this yet but obviously when I'm working on actual projects the relationships will be deeper.

And at some point it may give me the independence that I may never need another regular job again. That already may happen with shares- but with long term buy and hold share investing I don't need to spend much time on it anyway.

So yeah... daily goals from now on and I hope to connect with you if we can mutually benefit.
