Stephanie Taylor, Co-Founder of HMO Heaven and Rent 2 Rent Success

Tj Atkinson, Property Investor

Property businesses can take many forms, from residential to commercial, HMO and buy-to-lets, and investments in property companies or funds. Topics discussed will focus on:

  • Pros and cons of various property investing strategies
  • Is it better to earn income or sell for profit?
  • What it takes to go from corporate employee to full-time property developer?
  • Build to Rent
  • Rent to Rent
  • Serviced Accommodation
  • HMO/Selective Licensing
  • Finding deals
  • Funding deals

Property entrepreneurs from a BAME background are more likely to be turned down by mainstream lenders, face issues of a lack of equity to set against a loan, and red-lining, where banks designate less affluent areas in which live and work as high risk. But being an entrepreneur means being able to adapt and they will all share their approach, experience and belief that if the deal is good and strong, there are people out there who will invest.
