Attention to detail and the stress of refurb management

Refurbs are so tricky, one area I think we all can agree we struggle with. An area that puts off a lot of people from even getting involved in property, let alone a full-scale refurbishment.


I've done 16. Most were at a distance, with individual trades. The stress was REAL.


Here I talk about something a guest on my site day said to me, which will help you plan your refurbs :)

3 Key rules for making money in Property in 2021

A short, quickfire, but well-explained tour of some of the key things you should be doing (or not!) to ensure you make money in Property Investment.I've lost money, it's part of it sometimes, but I've learnt from those experiences and picked myself up, and got better. Property can be a forgiving game, however things can also seriously go wrong when developing property.Your due diligence before the deal is vital, and management during the refurb and then sale/refinance will all play big roles in your success.About your host, Tej:Tej graduated from King's’ College London with a BSc Biochemistry in 2014, he then pursued a career in Medical Education and Marketing. Soon after his second job… he was fired! A moment of relief and freedom was what he felt, not sure what his mother felt when he told her he was jobless at 23…He then went in search of a more ethical path, a business he could set up where the reward was equal to the work put in. “If they are making pounds, why am I making pennies?” - was his thought process, not happy with slow progression and bureaucracy (& having to wear smart shoes everyday). This lead him to opening a Recruitment business (not sure where the ethics went) which doubled in profit every year, for 4 years. He hated it. Golden handcuffs they call it.Fortunately, he used the cash he’d built up from that business, to educate himself in Property Investing. Soon, he’d stopped the business and transitioned into Property Investment full time. He then had a slow start -Purchasing 15 properties in his first 9 months, using over £650,000 of Investor Finance, he built a £1,200,000 property portfolio and created £30,000 of profit from flips. This gave him ‘financial freedom’, but it was the most stressful period of his life. Growing quickly is very painful.Let’s not forget that his Podcast grew to be the most-reviewed UK Property Podcast, peaking at 4,000 unique downloads per episode.His Podcast (Tej Talks) now sits at 660,000 downloads in over 100 countries and has 489 reviews, rated 5/5.
