Saw that there is only one other post in the apartments category - what a shame! I'd love to talk about any apartment-related topic... Such as if you believe that the market will rebound in 2011, what are the prime markets to be in right now, etc.
(Plus, I'm new to this site so looking forward to getting involved!)
Brent i'm looking forward to some of your hubs as i've only invested in sfr's to this point and would like to look to apartments in the future. I believe they should offer easier management and tax advantages.
I don't have that much experience on the investing side - most of my background is either on the property management side, vendor side, or... press. I run a professional networking group for the multifamily industry, so some people label that as a vendor and some people label it as press since I don't actually sell anything.
Good connecting with you!
Before buying an investment property, you should have a rough approximation of how long you plan to own property. This is because the more you intend to own the property, the more you spend on home maintenance. Sarah is a great property mentor where she explains all about the property investment in detail. To know in detail see my hub where you find the exact info
Sarah may be a great property mentor, but she does not come across as a great writer, at least not yet
Ouch! I'm new here, but I really like hubpages, where even a negative comment ends in a smiley face! People are a lot more nasty on other forums...
Sarah Barrett is a real life big time property millionaire in the UK, that hubber is not the real Sarah Barrett. In fact, it appears that they have also stolen the bio pic from her website, and left the second 't' from her surname. If you ask me, no words are harsh enough!
She talks about Sarah in the third person. Is it possible that she is just a fan of her and takes an interest in real estate? Let's try to give people the benefit of the doubt before we crucify them shall we?
She is not a celebrity, or a TV personality, she is a business woman. A property professional, a property consultant. She is not Paris Hilton, in fact she is probably entirely unknown outside of property circles. I used her as a case study for a university assignment, hence the reason that I knew who she was.
In fact, judging by your previous post, she effectively does a similar thing as you but for more affluent clientele.
Does your support of this poster effectively now give me the right to use the name Olivia Hatherley and your Hubpages profile picture on, say, Squidoo? Or would you find that inappropriate and slightly disturbing? It is one thing using pictures of Paris Hilton, Johnny Depp, Adam Sandler, those people are in the public eye. They are not property consultants.
Touché Mr. Kett. I appreciate your sentiment and understand your position entirely, however, as an internet aficionado I'm sure you understand that everything on the web may be snapped up and used for better or for worse. I would of course prefer people not use my image and name but if they choose to I suppose they may. I could have chosen to omit my name and image after all.
On a personal and side note I spent eight years in England and absolutely loved it. My mother still lives there even now. Perhaps if I am fortunate enough to make a return visit we could continue this debate over tea.
Lol, ignore me by the way, I am naturally condescending.
Whereabouts in England does your mother live? Surely you didn't love the weather As I always say, I would love this country if it weren't for the weather! Us Brits love a good moan about the weather though, we all spend at least 20 minutes a day talking about it.
LOL! Condescending, abraisive, mouthy and opinionated is pretty much me on a good day, so I find it endearing rather than upsetting. That and I love a good debate.
We lived, and she continues to reside in Cobham, Surrey. As for the weather, I will take rain for snow any day...Although Texas weather is to die for! God bless this state.
Cobham, very posh!
Now, I would dread being an aspiring first time buyer in Surrey! Thankfully I am outside of the London commuter belt, in Norfolk (the big bumpy bit which looks like an ass).
Although, I would happily operate as an Estate Agent in Hampshire or Surrey - there is some big money down there!
Hello fellow Hubbers! I am a professional property manager and Realtor looking to educate and enlighten residents, managers, and investors on all topics rental related. I am frequently asked questions and enjoy clarifying contractual questions. Feel free to pick my brain.
I am a recent Real Estate graduate, but I am a long way off being able to invest in properties other than my current living space. In other words, I don't have the capital, put me down as an aspiring investor!
If I lived in New York state, I would probably own a property empire by now, seeing as the market is so accessible. But I happen to live in the UK, where there is no such thing as cheap property. My one bedroom apartment cost me $130k, and it needs $25k of work!
First foot on the ladder though
