Twitter Q&A #wfqa Interview with Andrew Webber, HMO Investor

25/09/2010

Andrew Webber started getting into the idea of property investment in 2006. The idea of making loads of money without doing very much seemed a bit more appealing than slogging his guts out in a job he hated until he was 65.

In the 4 years since then he has had a few ups (6 properties bought) a few downs (a lot of deals fall through!) met a few great people, and frankly, a lot of annoying ones.

Andrew started off learning about HMO’s/ Multi-lets, then moved onto small flats rented out to DSS tenants, and is now getting into Lease Options as well!

Andrew writes a regular property based blog, The Property Blog which is an open and honest account of what he is trying to achieve, how he intends to do it, and very honestly, how he getting on. (it’s been a bit difficult the last year or so).

Andrew may even swear a bit at times. He may mention names, both positive and negative, who have been really helpful, and which companies/ people to avoid like the plague.

But over the next few months hopefully there will be a few bits of interest for anyone who is “in to” property, or thinking of getting into it.

1. @WalkerFox (WF)Why did you get involved with twitter?

@AWebberProperty (AW): Just to investigate what all the fuss is about!

2. WF: What sort of messages can we expect from your twitter feed

AW: Generally they will be snippets from my blog, and links to other useful resources I have found useful.

3. WF: Where do you find your inspiration in the property industry?

AW: 3.Firstly from my end goal. That inspires me to keep investing in property. Secondly from some of the great people I’ve met

4. WF: What’s your biggest property tip?

AW: Never be afraid to ask questions-loads of people are happy to help. And buy for cashflow, capital gains are a bonus.

5. WF: Where do invest in property?

AW: I invest in Swindon. A lot more investors have found it over the last couple of years though! Much more competition!

6. WF:  Is property your ‘career’ or what else do you do?
