Everything you need to build a UK and London Property portfolio...
If you have previously bought property or know someone that has, you will know how stressful and nerve-wracking the process can be. This is why I'm passionate about the value of quality education based on proven fundamentals.
Hello, my name is Brett Alegre-Wood and I'm a property investor. Over the years I've found that an educated investor will always do better than an uneducated one. This is the reason why I make ALL of my educational materials and articles available for free.
For well over a decade and more recently through my experience as Managing Director of YPC Group it's proven one thing beyond a doubt: people just like you are looking for a simple and secure way to invest in property without the need to spend countless hours researching, building relationships and managing the process of buying.
That's why YPC Group's number one purpose is "to simplify the process and allow you to effortlessly build a portfolio of buy to let properties, leaving you time for more important things."
Here's what we will do for you...
- We'll save you time and give you instant equity by sourcing the best performing properties across the UK and in the process will negotiate true market discounts of between 10% and 15% for you.
- We will then manage the entire process of buying the property for you, from reservation through to completion and on to letting.
- Finally, we will support you to create a portfolio of properties which over time will create significant equity and positive cash flow that will allow you to enjoy the lifestyle you've always wanted for yourself and your family.
That means that we'll do everything for you! We'll source the properties, organise mortgages, solicitors, flooring, curtains and furniture, my team will also let the property out for you, so you won't have to deal with any lettings agents if you don't want too.
I learned early on that people respond better if they don't have to take a lot of risk. It was a principle that was drummed into me as I studied marketing and advertising. In those circles it's called risk reversal and I've decided to apply it to my own business. This means that rather than having you begin your relationship with us by taking all the risks yourself, we take them from you by giving you a guarantee that certain things will and won't happen.
So what are these guarantees I'm talking about?
|Mortgage Guarantee. If we cannot get you a mortgage Decision in Principle you'll get your finders fees back.|
|Rent Received Guarantee. If the rent you receive is not within £50 per calendar month for properties below £200,000 or £100 per calendar month for properties above £200,000 of what our research says, we will pay you the difference for 2 years.|
|Two Year Rent Guarantee. If your property is void for more than 6 weeks at a time at any stage during the first two years from completion we will pay the realistic market rent until it is.|
|No Losses Guarantee If a deal falls over due to no fault of your own, we'll wear the costs so that you aren't out of pocket.|
|24 Hour Property Sleep Test. Once you have decided to go ahead we'll give you a full 24 hours to sleep on your decision. If you don't have a restful night's sleep, tell us and you'll have lost nothing.|
This gives you peace of mind and importantly, makes the entire process predictable. You'll have certainty that things will happen the way we said they will. But if for some reason they don't, you'll be suitably compensated (see terms and conditions applicable). Every investor has fears when starting out, but this process has been designed to minimise them as much as possible.
Seems too good to be true?
As you can imagine we are taking on considerable risk here, but I really believe that our team can perform on each one of these property guarantees. They are trained in my fundamental principles and I believe the quality of our property is so good that only a very small portion of clients will need to exercise any of these guarantees.
I know it might seem too good to be true but in the spirit of my 1, 2 STOP strategy, I think this will get our relationship off to a fantastic start. After all, you are guaranteed of getting a mortgage, letting the property and receiving a rent that you expected. The bottom line is that if we don't offer you properties that meet these strict criteria we don't deserve to be paid.
The other thing it does is take away some of the emotional hurdles you will encounter as you build your portfolio.
Why you need "emotional intelligence" as you build your portfolio...
One of the things I learned as I ran a personal development company in Australia was the importance of taking into account the emotional side of any change program (Yes whether you like it or not building a portfolio will change you). So it doesn't surprise me that the more clients I speak with, the more I realise that my business is about 10% to do with property and about 90% to do with emotions.
In fact, we actually spend most of our time helping clients through the emotional side of their journeys since building a portfolio is a massive emotional change program for most beginning investors. With this in mind, I've collected what I consider to be the biggest 16 lessons in emotional intelligence that every investor needs to know before they get into the market. Naturally, it's available here for free!
So what's the situation with discounted property?
Yes, discounted property is still available and developers are happy to pass on discounts for a couple of reasons.
- At the start of the process, they often need to secure seed capital to get funding. Their bankers will require they show a certain amount of sales off the plan. The developer can either invest in marketing directly to the general public or offer a discount to a property investment company like ours with access to active investors. For this they are happy to pass on a discount that they would normally lose to marketing.
- Developers need to achieve sales targets! If an area sales manager has a sales target to achieve they may pass a number of plots to a property investment company to sell quickly. In return for the short timeframe they'll offer great discounts.
- At the end of the process, the developer will normally have sold mos t of the plots and has only a few plots left which are eating into their precious profits through their onerous holding costs. They'll pass these to a property investment company to sell quickly and allow the developer to close the sales office and complete the entire project. These offer a quick turnaround to completion and make "flipping" easy as you are selling on a completed property.
So why can't you go to the developer and get these discounts directly?
This answer is quite simple: volume and hassle.
It takes the developer roughly the same amount of time to deal with you as an individual buying one property as it does a property investment company buying ten or more. Obviously a company purchasing ten simultaneously is of more value (from a profit and partnership perspective) than you buying just the one. It's for this reason that the developer is happy to negotiate bulk discounts with property investment companies but not with individuals.
Additionally, Your Property Club has strong links with many developers who we have built considerable trust with. They know that when we take 10 or 20 plots, they are guaranteed to be sold because if for whatever reason we cannot sell it to our clients then we buy them.
Make sure it's a real discount first!
Before you get too excited about any 10-25% discounts being marketed on the web, you need to understand what an "inflated valuation" is.
In many cases, both builders and property investment clubs can inflate the actual true market valuation of the property in order to advertise discounts off this inflated valuation. In some cases the inflated price can be 10-15% higher than the true market valuation.
Luckily, there's a simple way to protect yourself.
Introducing: The Your Property Club 89 Point Due Diligence checklist
Every single property we offer comes with its own 89 point due diligence checklist. It's all the hard work, all done for you. It contains 89 specific questions that we ask of every development before we agree to sell it. (In fact over the past 2 years we've added several more questions.) These questions cover comparative values from the land registry, websites and local agents, comparative rentals from local letting agents, crime, flood levels, local supermarkets, local schools, the history of the area, future plans for the area, distance to transport links, major investment, major employers, available plots. The list goes on and on.
This all means: we do the hard work so you don't have to...
To conduct this level of due diligence and research, we've hired some of the finest property scouts in the business to drive the length and breath of the country for us and search out the best performing properties, the best value deals and the most promising up and coming areas.
Their brief is to provide us with detailed, on-the-ground research of each local area they investigate. We then compare this information with our own, even more detailed research into local councils, governments and community groups. All this goes into the mix to create an amazingly detailed picture of the future potential for both equity growth and the letting of your investment.
So, to give you an idea of how stringent our property filter is — our property scouts will examine up to 20 developments each and every week. They will immediately filter out 18 or 19 of these as unsuitable, bring the remaining ones back to us onto which are then subject to our rigorous due diligence process.
