Our challenge: to make £100,000 in property. Is it easy? Not if you are starting out. But it is simple to follow a proven system that has succeeded before you. Will it require some work? Yes. May you make some mistakes along the way? Sure. But with a little dedication, and armed with the right knowledge it is very possible as this article demonstrates.


Strategy 1: Buy Refurb Flip
This is a low risk, time proven strategy that allows you to force the appreciation of the property through refurbishment and realise the profit by flipping the property [buying a selling – the most basic for of property transaction] on for a profit. You’ll need to find a property that’s run down and needs work, with available ‘uplift spread’ on the street, and the bigger the discount, the more the profit.

You might not want to sell a high yielding, cashflowing property, so find a deal that you can buy UMV [Under Market Value] that you may have passed on before. We bought a property for £92,500 with comps [similar 3-bedders] on the market in excess of £145,000, Even if you don’t achieve that figure, which doesn’t usually happen, there’s still room for profit. After all buying costs, selling costs and refurb fees, we walked away with a nice net profit after selling the property for £135,000.00.

Timescale – 4 months: Net Profit - £24,0005.93

Geoff Whittaker, one of our Property VIP Millionaires Club Members, is up at almost £60,000 cash from his first 3 deals, in less than 9 months, so could make it...!

Strategy 2: Assisted Sale [AS]
This strategy is smart. You buy or take control of a property [exchange on it with an ‘assignable’ contract or take an ‘option’ to buy it], then pass it on to the investor/your customer and take your profit from the equity, not fees. Let’s say you source at 30% UMV: you can pass this on to another investor or, more easily, a FTB [First Time Buyer] at 10% UMV. They will jump all over that because they do not expect professional discounts like you will be able to get, and you can make a larger profit: 20% of £100K.

Timescale -1-2months: Net Profit - £16,0000.

Total at this stage...£40,005.93

Strategy 3: Options to Purchase
Using an option to purchase instead of buying allows you flexibility, much lower costs than a buy and sell, and avoids you having to wait 6 months to remortgage. The seller is pretty distressed and owes £70k on his mortgage and in the current run down condition his property is probably worth about £130,000. The seller is 10 days away from being repossessed and wants’ a quick sale of £75k. Similar properties in good condition could sell for £150k.

We will get the seller to sign an option which includes a lockout agreement giving us the right to purchase the property for £70k, and locking other buyers out for a pre determined timeframe..We will probably spend around £9,000 adding value to bring the property up to scratch to other proven comparables and accept an offer of £143,000for a quick sale.

In the mean time, we will liaise with the lender and pay a holding sum to our solicitors to show the lenders we are serious and we have the funds to pay off their £4,000 arrears, which holds off repossession. Because this is a great deal, we will give a further £10,000 back to the seller as an equity share and everyone will be happy with the outcome, and of course it is a great feeling helping someone in a less fortunate position.

Remember it’s not all about making ‘a wad of cash’ but being ethical and stabilising what is a bad situation for the seller.

Timescale - 1-2 months: Net profit - £41,000.


Strategy 4: Positioning yourself as a Letting Agent

This strategy is a variation of similar option style strategies where you are not purchasing a property now but making real profit in terms of cashflow by controlling a portfolio. Maybe a landlord is fed up of managing their 15 property portfolio, has out of date tenancy agreements, lets the odd rent slip through the net, doesn’t like dealing with repairs or tenant issues and just wants out from the day-to-day hassle.

The landlord may be earning about £120,000 per annum from his portfolio, but with your
management you could increase the rents to about £130,000, as well as other fees for your service for bringing the tenancies to boost your income.

You agree to take a fixed management fee of about 13% for his entire portfolio. Of course depending on your negotiation skills, you could also have an option to purchase the entire portfolio at a discount in the future. This is a very real strategy that has worked for many in the past and the best thing about it is you don’t need much, if any, up-front cash.

Timescale – 2-3months: Net Profit: £15,600 per annum/£1300 per month.

Running total...£96,000

Progressive Property




Rob & Mark have bought over 230 properties since 2005 for themselves and their investors

In 2006 Rob & Mark set about buying properties full time for themselves. They never actually intended to build one of the largest Property companies in the UK, they simply wanted to buy Property with big discount & good cashflow for lifestyle choice

Things snowballed from there, & having sourced those properties in 2006 & built many relationships with Estate Agents, they were sourcing more Property than they could logistically buy. From there they started to buy for friends & family

And so Progressive Property *Hands-Free* was born in January 2007: for people who want all of the benefits of Property without having to do the work themselves
