Property Tribes would like to draw your attention to an event happening in London on the 13th May with high profile developer, John Howard.We recently had the privilege of meeting John, an investor with four decades of experience, at the Property Investor Show in London.John has several companies in East Anglia, and was formerly a member of the board of directors of Cambridge United football club.
In February 2010 Howard's company Bideawhile 445 Ltd. agreed to sell the Abbey Stadium to a property developer for GBP 3,500,000 . The sale was agreed with Grosvenor Estates, and amounted to a profit for Bideawhile of around GBP 2,500,000 - including rental receipts - since they purchased the stadium five years earlier.John's most recent project is a development of 150 flats in Ipswich which he is undertaking in collaboration with the Government's Homes England scheme.
John has decided to share his extensive knowledge through a series of seminars and Property Tribes is pleased to bring these to your attention, the first one being this month:This is authentic property training from someone who has been in the game 40 years, and has been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. There is no up-sell to a more expensive training or mentorship programme and you will also have time to have your questions answered by John.Email: email@example.com to book or for further information.If you do attend, watch out for the Property Tribes camera, as we will be there for the afternoon session. Here is a reprise of our interview with John about "no money down" property deals:
**In the interests of transparency, Property Tribes does not have any commercial connection to John Howard and we have not been paid for this promotion. We just wish to support what will be a really great day of value for any landlord or property investor, no matter what your level of experience.
Vanessa Warwick Landlord and Co-Founder of PropertyTribes.com **If you have got value from Property Tribes, find out how you can support it in remaining a free to use community resource**
Thanks for sharing - also watched the video - good advice there. As for NMD - wouldn't "property sourcing" be one such strategy?
Property sourcing is a business activity, not undertaking ownership of the title of the property, so I do not see it as an NMD strategy, but possibly a way to build a deposit to buy a property.
I agree with all this......and it's why I agreed to present a new course for the RLA - The Key to Property Investment.
The first one was a few weeks ago in Manchester, next one is in London, and all content was developed by myself for the RLA for the sole reason to give an honest unbiased insight, based on my experiences since 1989, as I have been through some serious ''ups and downs!''
I have done alot of different stuff over the years in property from flipping, land sites to blocks of apartments, to developing commercial to resi HMO developments which has been my focus more recently, and I lived through two recessions, and as a result of this I wrote content looking at the impact of Economic cycles and hedging your portfolio.
I have been based overseas, and also here lately and the content is all about being honest and with credible to the realities of the business. Some of the content is about how to find property via the land reg without using auctions or agents, again I show many real case studies of doing just that, as that's how I find all my deals!
I don't do it for the money because the RLA are not charging up to £1200 per day for the course, which is ridiculous. I have no hidden agenda and I am looking to meet people to invest in any of my deals or sell any property as I use agents and Rightmove for this, the odd time I do sell. I do it because it's a really enjoyable day for me and I do get paid for it, but not a major amount, and it will never be an over-priced, over-promised course!
I hope you don't mind me mentioning it Vanessa, but if anyone on here has been on this new RLA course, can maybe vouch for what I said above!
This is absolutely fantastic to learn this and feel free to mention it as many times as you like!Please also go and add the above post to this thread: Property education, training, and mentoringThat is the thread where we promote authentic education and also the RLA Academy.You are also welcome to start a thread in this category asking for RLA training reviews.
Anyone who knows me will know I've always had a rule - I will only work with Genuine, Authentic, Honest people.John is one of those people. He has integrity and years of experience in the property industry (and I mean 40 years).What he doesn't know about property investing isn't worth knowing.You may have seen me helping out on his stands at Excel or Olympia this year, or at previous seminars, but sadly I wont be at this next seminar, as I'm away on business.However, I know it will be a great day and full of facts, advice and a few laughs. No Upsell, No BS, just good common sense advice. And he gives away his book!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts Claire. John is indeed the real deal and a breath of much needed fresh air and credibility in the training sector. Someone with decades of experience and a proven track record. Just look him up on Wikipedia!Hope to see some PT members at the event in London on the 13th May - a very worthwhile day out spent in stellar company.
John has made an advert for his seminars:

Hi Vanessa, I just wanted to ask you, why do you believe John Howard is different from people like Samuel Leeds? Does John actually teach people the reality of property investment in his seminars? *moderator content removed*. It just made me realise how naive I am... I am also thankful for coming across this before *moderator content removed*. I really want to do well in this business, so reflecting back to my question, is it worth my time and money going to John’s seminar?
Hi Tomas,Thanks for your valid question.The difference is that John is the real deal. He has a wikipedia entry and business accounts to prove his business success. John teaches the pitfalls as well as the up-sides to property investing.His course costs around £250.00 and there is no up-sell. I think that is a small price to pay to spend a day with someone with four decades of experience who has been through several property cycles.
