February 21st, 2020 • By: Vinden Announcements, Property, Real-estate

I’ve reached 22,000 words so far on my new book, but am taking an afternoon off to catch up on admin and marketing.

A full-blown home-study course will follow too.

I’m finding it slow-going today, although I’ve written a number of books before, mainly in the personal development arena, such as:

* Top Tips for A Successful Life
* Focus: A Tool For Greater Productivity
* Procrastination: Learn To Overcome It.

With over 30 years of experience, a property portfolio, real-world auction-buying, plus having lived through renovation of our Victorian country house, I have accumulated quite a bit of knowledge! So, my latest book venture is in real-estate / property.

I’ll also be offering you guidance from some of the top people in property, such as agents / Realtors ®, builders, surveyors, developers, etc. More about the real-estate / property book’s contents will be revealed soon, let’s just say that it will help you to sell your home, as it contains crucial advice in this difficult world-wide market to achieve a better price and a quicker sale for your property, so subscribe to stay in touch with developments!

Our Fantastic Property Investment in Florida

June 16th, 2015 • By: Vinden Property, Real-estate

A Caribbean Cruise + A Fantastic Investment in Florida

While wintering in Florida a few years back, we thought it was a good time to look for great value properties in the Sunshine State. We visited several then made an offer on a potential bargain on Florida’s Gulf Coast. We went away on a cruise around the Caribbean with several hundred other entrepreneurs. By the time we got back, our offer was accepted! We bought it for an 80% (yes – eighty!) discount from the price the estate agent owner paid just 5 years earlier.  Now that’s what I call a Christmas vacation!

Just signed our tenants up for another year in our property in Florida!

The property yields 14% gross & almost 10% net. The value of the property has doubled in the 4 years since we bought it & we anticipate more upside. A fantastic investment!

Planning Permission For Converting Outbuildings At One Of Our HMOs

We’re delighted to have finally obtained planning permission to convert the outbuildings (Stables, stores, etc.) owned by our JV property vehicle, grace kelly churchill property ventures LLP, into 4 apartments!

These are at the rear of one of our Houses Of Multiple Occupation (HMO), a good investment in this part of the East Midlands in the UK.

Now to get the schedule of works out to builders for their quotes. It takes ages to get the schedule together so that we fulfil several criteria:

  • Planning regualtions
  • Building regulations
  • Aesthetic considerations
  • Space considerations
  • Neighbours
  • Market requirements, i.e. what does the local market need?

The beauty of this deal, that I found while browsing the web from our place on Spain’s Costa Almeria, is that the substantial outbuildings were essentially free, as the deal stacked up anyway just with converting the main house and shop into a 6-7 bed HMO!
