For every dramatic & sensational headline you see in the newspaper or on the net, there's usually another story behind, waiting to be uncovered. In this video blog, I take a weekly look at the headlines and interpret them for you, what they mean to your portfolio and your bottom line.
Brett Alegre-Wood is the founder and MD of Your Property Club, a property investment company that specialises in educating beginner property investors. His expertise lie in a combination of property knowledge and psychological application, ensuring the average person a personal security through property, not discredited pension plans.
Brett was born and educated in Australia and now lives and works in London. He has built thousands of people?s property portfolios in the UK, Australia and Spain. Over the years he has learnt the importance of what properties to buy, where the best mortgages can be obtained, how to present each property for renting, how to manage it and, most importantly, how to use each property to build your portfolio.
Brett has extensive knowledge and a huge passion for property. He started his career in Australia as an estate agent and went on to become a mortgage broker. When he moved to the UK in 2002 he quickly found a job as marketing manager for a property investment company. He soon realised he had the experience to set up on his own, as did the 5 staff who followed him.
Your Property Club researches, analyses and interprets long-term property market trends and presents the information in free articles, blogs, videos, articles and reports. It was set up in 2004 and since then the company has gone from strength to strength. They now have over 1,500 clients who have bought property from them and over 60,000 subscribers who receive weekly e-mail newsletters directly from Brett. The website gets over 55,000 hits a month.
In this video, Brett Alegre-Wood overviews the UK Budget 2013. Rather than go line by line he summarizes the important bits for property investors in the UK and abroad.
The 2 main things in the budget for investors is the Help to Buy Scheme which provides £3.5bn to help people get on the ladder and the £130bn Mortgage Guarantee that will help mortgages be more affordable and lenders be more at ease with lending at higher loan to values. Both programs should be a success...
This budget is a largely neutral budget, what is saved is spent... the chancellor is preferring to allow the natural market forces and time to solve the problems.
The summary is somewhat reminiscent of last years summary... Steady as she goes... Nothing in the budget should worry us nor would we jump up and down with excitement either.
