The pin meeting in Manchester was excellent last week.  John Davies from Hedge gave a market update, which was very informative.  It’s great just to go the meetings to get the latest property news. 

Then Charlie Robinson from Your Solution Centre gave a presentation about her business. She is an ex Masterminder and has set up a business to assist people with their debt problems.   What Charlie was offering seems to be a great value-add service to any potential offer to a vendor.  If that vendor is in debt, you can put an offer on their house, but also you can offer the services of a partner company to help them sort out their debt problems too  (ie. Your Solution Centre). Their aim is to help people become debt free within 12 months. This would mean that your solution as an investor would be a better value service.  Needless to say that you would get more business and more referrals.

John Davies then came back on to talk about property options. He has joined forces with Mark Jackson from UK Property Options to form a new company, which has created the Protected Lease Option (PLO). This sounds like an interesting idea where they have arranged for indemnity insurance to cover the option in return for a 25% profit of the option – but only when it is exercised.  So if anything goes wrong they pay all the legal fees, they also ensure that the Lease Option is set up correctly in the first place.  John and Mark will be arranging a training course in the near future. So Just Do Property will let you know when we have the dates.

Mark Jackson was also at the meeting and he has 2 Lease Options Live training courses coming up:

April 10th – London

April 17th – Leeds (Early bird price of £97 till March 5th)

There was some great networking and I met a lot of people that I could do business with in the future. Sometimes I dont feel like going out to networking events, but Im always glad I did, and feel energised when I return!
