It’s the episode you’ve been waiting a whole month for. It’s August’s market update!  There’s so much that’s happened in August, it’s been crazy!  Normally you would expect August to be a bit of a quieter month, with people taking time off, going on holiday or just spending time with their children during the school holidays.  However, given the current circumstances, that’s not been the case at all and some certain topics that the guys are going to discuss today have been quite surprising.  Here’s what The Robs are going to be talking about on today’s episode: Property prices Evictions Mortgages Insurance Taxes The economy Plus a whole lot more just in case that wasn’t enough for you.    Not only are Rob & Rob bringing you the market update, but they’ve also been on the phone talking to none other than Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, just in case you didn’t already know. Now we’re going to be keeping all the juicy details from that conversation for next week, but Robert Kiyosaki does actually have a virtual event on this weekend! It’s on Sunday at 8am for the Global Crisis Summit so if that’s something you’d be interested in, you can get your virtual ticket here.   If any of the job roles that Rob & Rob discussed in today’s episode and you’d like to apply, you can go and check out the full job roles right here.    We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future - if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do.

We’re back with another episode of Ask Rob & Rob and this week the guys are discussing questions on HMO’s and why they do/don’t love Birmingham. The first question we’ve got for you this week is from Martin, who after listening to the podcasts has gone on to recently purchase his first property.  It’s a 3-bed property that would rent out for around £800pcm and he has the option to renovate it and turn it into a 4-bed HMO that will bring in around £1,600pcm.  He’s now questioning whether he’d be better off appealing to a family where he won’t have to pay the bills for them, or go for the HMO market and tenant turnover, but almost doubling his income? It’s certainly a tough decision to make Next up we’ve got Jordan. Clearly due to his question he’s been a long term listener as he’s got a question based on a podcast The Robs did a few years ago.  The podcast episode was why Rob & Rob don’t show Birmingham much love so now Jordan is wondering if three years on that’s still the case and The Robs still don’t love Birmingham. To him it seems like a good choice as from what he can see the fundamentals are there, but he’s wondering if he’s missing something.  Tune in to find out if Rob & Rob have a new found love for Birmingham or if they’d still keep away.   Do you have a buy to let or property investment related question for Rob & Rob?

At some point in your property journey you’re going to get people who are questioning what it is you’re doing.  People that doubt you’ll make any money from investing in property and they’ll try and put you off.  So in this week’s episode of The Property Podcast, Rob & Rob are going to discuss how you should deal with them, but more importantly, why you should encourage them.  Sounds crazy, right?  What if we told you that you should use what the doubters say as momentum to spur you on? Because that’s exactly what Rob B did himself about a decade ago.  Rob B shares a personal experience in today’s episode and it might just give you the push you need to keep going and ignore the haters.   In the news this week, ‘collapse of Airbnb popularity produces glut of long-term stock’. After speaking to Chris Ryder a few weeks ago, you wouldn’t expect to see this headline, especially now it seems the majority of the population are enjoying staycations this summer.  However research from Hamptons International has shown that one in eight properties coming onto the market in inner London have previously been on Airbnb or other short term let websites.  It also shows that the number of homes available to rent in inner London is up by 42% compared to last year which is a huge increase! But there are many factors that can contribute to this.  As a result it’s pushing rental prices down. Which is something that The Robs will discuss on next week’s market update.   This week’s Hub Extra is a new podcast for you to listen to! Our podcast producer Dan has also been working on a new podcast called ‘Naked Money’.  The show has Robbie Burns as the host who’s a multi-millionaire stock trader if you didn’t already know. He’s more famous for his book, The Naked Trader which is a book Rob B loved.  So no doubt the new podcast is going to be just as good.    We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

This week on Ask Rob & Rob the guys are still answering coronavirus related questions and helping one caller put his mind at rest on his recent investment To kick start this week, we’ve got Harsh. Along with a friend as part of a joint venture, they’ve bought their first buy-to-let property in Crewe.  However he’s now having worrying thoughts. Harsh has clearly been listening to our weekly podcasts and he knows that Crewe is an area that we’ve mentioned numerous times on the podcast and an area Property Hub Homes even built a development in.  But he’s also listened to the episode on Rob D’s investment in Nottingham and is now worried that because he only paid £75,000 for his property, it’s not going to benefit from capital appreciation. Is this a general rule of thumb? Should Harsh think about selling and investing somewhere else? Our second caller is Pedro. He’s got a question about the effects of coronavirus and the impact it’s had on people working from home. Since more people are now working from home and potentially going to continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, will this change the fundamentals that we look for when investing in property? So what do Rob & Rob think about this?  Tune in to find out   Do you have a buy to let or property investment related question for Rob & Rob?
