We connect people with complementary resources and skills (money / time / expertise).
We find a great potential property that for some reason won’t sell, remove the obstacles to selling, sometimes a simple case of remarketing through a different platform, or more complex problems such as boundary disputes, obstructive people or title issues.
We aim to minimise risks and sell off the property as soon as possible. In some cases we have almost doubled the price paid with little or no physical works.
Normally property development projects involve considerable works which may drag on for months or longer. Because of that, you don’t get your money back for a long time.
Our goal is to get a return as soon as possible. Therefore, where possible we focus on maximising the returns on time, rather than maximising the profit per deal.
We usually go for “problem properties” – subsidence, no access to view inside, resistant sellers being repossessed, boundary disputes, burn-outs, nightmare neighbours, dry rot etc.
These properties scare novice investors away giving us a clear run to seize the opportunity, often at a very low price.
I have more than 30 years experience as a carpenter and builder prior to going into property trading, so I really understand the fabric of buildings in detail.
Most of these deals have been done as some form of joint venture, so I endeavour to make myself as easy to work with as possible. This means working hard to really understand what each side wants out of the deal, then finding ways how to make it happen.
Some properties have also been held as rental investments.
