After great feedback from our official Launch event in April we decided to return to Blackfriars, London with our leading series on 'Investments in Real Estate'
On Thursday the 13th July we opened the doors at Crowne Plaza hotel. Aiming to give investors and entrepreneurs the opportunity to find out how they can purchase distressed real estate, and embark upon a successful refurbishment project. We shared insight to the results current distressed projects are achieving for clients.
After the launch event in April was fully booked within 2 weeks, and we had to upgrade the venue we were very excited to return again. We knew there would be more investors keen to learn more and discuss how we can help them create personal financial growth. We received multiple enquiries and even had multiple meetings with investors prior to the event. These investors simply stated they couldn't wait another 2 months to learn more as they are already on a journey where they know what their end goal will be. The team here were delighted to discuss at such an early stage and still see these investors again.
We are regularly asked "since Brexit and other government changes is the housing market still buoyant." We like to say yes it is and first time buyers are still out their buying. Also we like to use feedback from our financial partners to establish if their is appetite among our audience who are buying these properties once we renovate them. The financial firms we work closely with advise they still see a large amount of buyers requesting mortgage term illustrations.
All attendees advised the event was very good and gave them further insight to think about various investment options. We also received multiple request for follow up meetings instantly as they are interested in sourcing deals we discussed on the day.

After fees these have an average of £27,000 created in equity.
