What I Would Do If I Was Starting Now

View descriptionShare

Simon shares valuable insights on what he would do if starting to invest in property again. Drawing from nearly 30 years of experience in property investing, he reflects on his journey from a young graduate with student debt to a successful property investor, and emphasises the importance of creative strategies like purchase lease options, highlighting how these approaches can help aspiring investors overcome financial barriers and enter the property market. 


  • Look into the possibility of starting in property investing with minimal funds by utilising strategies like lease options and renting out rooms to cover expenses.
  • Use purchase lease options as a key strategy for acquiring properties without the need for a large deposit or mortgage.
  • Reach out to landlords who may be tired or retiring to explore opportunities for taking over their properties through lease options, showcasing a proactive approach to finding investment opportunities.
  • There's great value in assembling a reliable power team, including a mortgage broker and solicitor, to navigate the complexities of property investing and secure favourable deals.


"I knew nothing about property investing. All I knew was I wanted to get my foot onto the property ladder."

"I would find a landlord who was tired or retiring. I would take on a property on a lease option, ideally five or even maybe seven years."

"Most landlords who are student landlords don't know this. So we can take on their empty properties, do a very light refurb, get them up to scratch, and then rent them out to young professionals."

"Purchase lease options are a fantastic way of controlling property, getting cash flow and potential extra growth on a property that you don't own, which means that you don't need a mortgage and you don't need a big deposit."
