Simon discusses the advantages of buying properties with mortgages compared to buying for cash. He provides numerical examples to illustrate how leveraging mortgages can lead to higher returns and increased cash flow over time. Simon also emphasises the power of using other people's money to invest in property and highlights various creative funding strategies for those with limited capital. 


  • Using mortgages allows for more properties to be purchased, increasing overall cash flow and potential profits.
  • Property values tend to increase over time, especially due to the shortage of accommodation and increasing population.
  • Various methods, such as rent-to-rent, lease options, vendor finance, joint ventures, or loans, can be utilised when running out of personal funds.
  • By leveraging mortgages and multiple properties, the potential return on investment can be significantly higher compared to buying properties outright with cash.


"But what you need to remember is that when you get a mortgage or using someone else's money to buy a property, it means your deposits can go further and your tenants who rent the property from you, they are going to be more than covering the cost of the mortgage."

"The reality is we live on an island in the UK. There is not enough accommodation. We have the increasing population. So over time, both the rents and property values go up."

"If you have money, whether it's savings, inheritance, money in your business. It's not doing you any favours sitting in the bank. By putting it into property, not only can you get a much better cash flow, you also benefit from that long-term capital growth."
