    not sure i'd say a valuation fee is well spent, more has to be spent…. but what i did, buy, wait, remortgage, buy, wait, remortgage…

    Awesome videos Andy, this type of advice has helped give me the push I needed to keep investing using the suggested strategy with both my own home and my investment properties in developing areas like Trafford and Liverpool. Please keep up the good work!

    Super interesting, I'm at the early stages of getting into this after raising a second deposit since buying my first property. Would love to find out some more info from you, do you have an email address I can send some questions over to?

    im looking into building a small 2 bed "house" in my parents large garden and letting it, i dont have any money but demand is really high in my area. could i remortgage my parents house with them and use the cash the bank gives to invest in the building cost?

    I am in the forces and I have 4 rental properties I am going to now have a review and relies the equity to buy more. However the new tax law is putting me of a little but property is a long term investment and I'm sure in time it will change again.

    Good video thanks! I'm wondering how do you find good deals or areas that will increase equity enough in order to buy more properties? As I don't live in my own country anymore and have to speak a different language than my native one it makes it more difficult for me to identify these properties – would there be a professional I should seek help from or just try to learn the value of different areas and look for a "cheap deal"?


    Does equity increase monthly payment?
    Let's say
    Property with a loan 300,000 – monthly payment 1000
    Equity loan 100,000 – monthly payment 800
    Total monthly payment = 1800
    Is my calculation correct?

    Great video as usual.

    is this apply in London areas? This is only my impression, but it would be interesting to hear form other about it.

    With house price rocketing, with equity of your home, say £60k, you will not be able to buy anything unless you move your attention in areas where buying is cheaper and consequently rental incomes will be lower.
    Considering the overage price for a 1bed flat is now close to £300000 within London zone 5 and 6, don't you think the house price are exceptionally increased leaving little chance to invest? Also the increase of stamp duty in 2014 and now a further increase SDLT for additional residential property (buy to let or second home) above £40k of 3%, represent an other obstacle to consider. So the question is: Should we start to consider moving business somewhere else?

    Do you happen to know if you can extract equity if your property was originally mortgaged as shared ownership? I only own half of mine and would like to do so to start investing.

    You have not mentioned S24 this method of BTLis very old hat not wise to do Now  ? Unless you do new Purchases via a Ltd Co

    hi. my parents are pretty much done paying for their home. if i use their equity from their property to purchase rental property does this mean that they must know continue or start paying their bond for the amount/equity i took out?

  17. Teddy Smith

    LOL I once knew a guy who took out equity to buy an old corvette. I think he's doing OK, but wasn't the smartest financial move.

    that model is the "best case" scenario?
    you should also touch up on the worst case scenarios like in the event of housing market crash of 08' and what sort of contingency plans you'd deploy.
    i know people don't like talking about their losses, but it is a must.

    150,000 sounds like a steal of a deal for property as that amount is only down payment in the Silicon Valley. Great simple Visuals at the end, looks so easy to proooffiitqttts from that model. =) (nice outtakes too haha)
