In this episode, Rob sits down to speak with John – The Expat Property Guy who is also known as the Banksy of podcasting. He is based in Hong Kong but invests in UK property.
John talks about the highs and lows of his journey of investing in property, from abroad. He and Rob discuss HMOs, new builds, the buy-refurbish-refinance model, SA, holiday lets and student accommodation. John also explains how using auctions you can buy wholesale rather than retail.
‘We made the classic expat mistake of looking at new build properties, a terrible idea.’
‘There are unscrupulous people out there and they will take advantage of you.’
‘It’s all about obtaining things for wholesale prices rather than retail prices.’
