    How to get started into 'flipping' properties

    Hi Rassie,

    I have only done mainly free courses in the past, hosted by the property 'Guru's'. They have all been mainly one day courses, with an up sell at the end...which I have kindly turned down.  I attended a one day course with Mr Armstrong, which was packed full of info - but nothing I couldn't have researched for myself.

    I don't want this to sound cheesy, but this forum, free e books and you tube videos - have been my best form of training I have done for myself.  I have also bought some motivational books and listened to quite a lot of pod casts. 

    I can list them specifically if that helps...let me know?

    I agree with you Newbie_investor.  Don't spend thousands of pounds on property courses when you can get what you need from the internet for free.  The only courses I have done are trade related skills eg. plumbing.  Not a guru in sight.   I don't do plumbing and never have, but I find it helps to know if you're being ripped off or misadvised by the trades - especially if you're female.

    Snap - I intend to do a basic plumbing, electric and a kitchen fitting course in the future.  

    If I learn something then great - but minimum then builders will know that I am aware of the basics.

    I reckon your strategy of buying and adding value and then wait a bit and then a remortgage on total uplift in value is a very sensible way to proceed

    You don't need anyone else to do this.

    Slowly, slowly does it

    No need to rush

    If I can remortgage six months down the line and be able to release my initial investment - that will be the ideal plan!

    Therefore, I get my money back and another BTL to add to my portfolio.
