Why I Am Saying Goodbye, For Now

11 Mar

goodbye for now

So writing this post is sad.

And the decision to do it has not been easy – especially not when I’ve got so many super cool stories (and so many more in the pipeline) that I want to share with you.

However, I’m off to start living new adventures and so I’m officially taking a sabbatical…as of now!

You may remember I was meant do this before when I sold the lettings business, but then I got busy writing…and a blog post turned into a book or two!

And life has a habit of racing around you and before you know it, years have passed and you didn’t do what you meant to do.

Which is why I am taking a step back and saying: “Woah, hold on there life – I wasn’t quite ready for you to go so quick!”

So I’m grabbing back control and going off grid for a while.  I’ve got some cool ideas, adventures and travel plans.  There are so many people I want to see, chat with…places to dine, drink, dance…fun to make and experiences to be had.

So this is Goodbye, For Now.

Thank you so much for all your support, love and encouragement over the past few years, it’s been awesome.

Until next time x

The Importance Of Having A Tenant Guarantor (If You Want To Get Paid!)

4 Mar

3 years into a tenancy you would figure that you pretty much know a tenant.


This isn’t so.

And that is because in that time period not enough stuff has happened for the tenant to react to.


What do I mean by that?

Well, as a landlord, you truly get a measure of a tenant when the shit hits the fan, and they don’t know what to do about it. (more…)

Income or Capital? What Do YOU Want From Property Investment?

24 Feb


With all the talk of sky-high buy to let returns, it’s easy to get overly excited and rush to buy the first property you think you can make a buck on.

But, wait.

Before you barrel in with any property purchase, it’s critical to first think to yourself: Why?

Why am I investing in property? (more…)

Can Property Pay Your Wages?

17 Feb


It’s an apt question that many people ask themselves.  In these times of booming property prices and soaring buy to let rents it’s no wonder so many people have opted to invest in bricks and mortar over volatile stocks and shares.

So when IWC (the makers of Kirsty and Phil’s Location, Location, Location) approached me to be a property consultant for the show they were making “Can Property Pay Your Wages?” for Channel 4, I said “Yes”. (more…)
