Investing Vs saving = only one winner for your money.

Of course there’s never a guarantee with any investment but we could also argue there is a guarantee with saving, at the current rate of inflation.

Saving at the current rate of inflation is 100% eating away at your money.

The easiest way to flip a house in the UK is to flip your own residential home.

If you buy a property to flip on an investment basis you usually have to put a minimum of 25% and get a bridging loan that can cost anything up to 1.2% per month.

By buying your own home to live in and renovate, you can put down a smaller deposit, renovate over a longer period of time and pay a lot less interest

For examples sake let’s say you have £100,000 in the bank.

Let’s say that the £100,000 is to be used to purchase 3 serviced accommodation properties each generating £700 net

This example is based on waiting 12 months

– Loss of income on 3 properties over a 12 month period = £25,200
– The Bank of England announced raising rates by 2% next year. 2% over 2 years because you will have to fix the mortgage = £9,000
– Inflation is at 11% = £11,000 loss
– Total: £45,200 loss

This means you will need to get higher than a 45% drop in property prices to make this worth waiting. Baring in mind it’s been predicted that there will be a 5% drop.

Kenan’s approach is a high-stakes game, brimming with risk, but as he believes, life is about taking those risks that lead to greater rewards. 💪 He’s all in, putting his resources on the line to transform this house into a highly sought-after property for first-time buyers in an area craving good homes. 🚀

But it’s more than just a property flip; it’s a trust game. Kenan emphasizes the importance of legal backup and a solid foundation of trust with sellers. 👥 This venture, aptly named ‘Project Cruise,’ isn’t just about refurbishing a house; it’s about making dreams come true. Once sold, the owner’s dream of a cruise becomes a reality. 🚢✨

Nicole Bremner’s story is not one of immediate success in the property world, but rather a tale of discovery, resilience, and triumph. Starting off as an ex-banker in Sydney, London, and New York, and a mother of three, Nicole explored various passions, from photography to cooking and even knitting, in search of a fulfilling career that would also contribute significantly to her family’s finances.

It wasn’t until 2010, with the development of her own home, that Nicole found her true calling in property development. Since then, she has astonishingly elevated her gross development value to over £120 million. Embracing the innovative world of crowdfunding, Nicole and her team have impressively raised over £4 million, managing £10 million in investor funds.

Nicole Bremner

Her journey from a stay-at-home mum to a renowned property developer is nothing short of inspiring. Nicole openly shares her experiences and insights, regularly speaking about her transition into property and entrepreneurship. Her story is not just about success; it’s a candid reflection on the challenges faced, including moments close to losing everything and the impact on her marriage, mental, and physical health.

In her highly ranked self-titled property and lifestyle podcast, which falls in the top 5% globally, Nicole delves into these topics. Her book “Bricking It” further narrates her journey, providing a transparent view into the world of property development.

Beyond her professional achievements, Nicole’s personal life is a tapestry of family, adventure, and resilience. She resides in rural Kent with her partner Paul, their three children, plus bonus children, and their pets, including three dogs and a goldfish named Jaws.

Nicole and Paul, when time permits, indulge their love for the sea, sailing on their boat, the Savvy of London. Their YouTube channel, SailingSavvy, showcases their family’s sailing escapades, capturing their adventures on the Mediterranean waters.

Nicole’s latest initiative includes a live discussion with Lucy Noonan, a veteran in M&A advisory, where they will dive into the intricacies of buying and selling lettings or estate agencies. This discussion promises to be insightful, offering viewers a chance to engage with experts who have a wealth of experience in the property industry.

Join Nicole Bremner in her journey, where every challenge is met with determination, every failure with learning, and every success with humility. Her story is a testament to the power of resilience and the endless possibilities that come with daring to dream big.

Nicole Bremner

None of them allowed her to contribute to the family finances in the way she wanted. Since her first property development in 2010 (her own home), Nicole’s gross development value has risen to over £120 million. Most recently, she has embraced crowdfunding – raising over £4 million with her team – and currently manages £10 million in investor funds. She regularly speaks about her journey into property and entrepreneurship.
