    YPN or PIN Magazine?

    I am considering subscribing to Your Property Network or Property Investor News Magazine.

    I was wondering if anyone here subscribed to either or them and whether you would recommend them, or something else?

    I am looking primarily to keep up with current news within the industry and perhaps read some case studies or articles written by investors.

    I previously subscribed to The Property Hub Magazine which was good but not quite what I am looking for.

    Many thanks in advance for any help you beautiful people of PT.

    I get the Property Hub magazine.

    It’s only published once every quarter so I wouldn’t use it if you’re using it to keep up with the latest news.

    I’d recommend trying it. If you don’t like it you can cancel after one issue. There is no minimum period that you have to subscribe for.

    You also get all back issues for free (electronically). However I prefer a physical magazine so have never taken advantage of this.

    I subscribe to property investor and like it, there are focuses on different area, council updates, planning updates.  Articles on other investors etc.

    I get the NLA magazine and find it good. That and this forum seems to keep me up to date.

    I didn't know the NLA did a magazine, I will check it out, thanks for the recommendation.  I will probably get an issue of YPN too and see if I like it, but can't see how to get one issue of PIN without signing up for the year.

    Hi LondonChap,

    I'm a bit late to this thread. Hands up in advance - as editor of YPN, I'm definitely biased here!! 

    More seriously though, it depends what you're looking for. PIN is excellent for monthly news updates and for getting a perspective of the broader property market and the issues and drivers that affect it. At YPN (also a monthly publication), on the other hand, as well as including regular updates on legislation, tax, landlord issues, etc, we tend to hone in on specific strategies, case studies and projects. The Property Hub magazine as mentioned above is quarterly, but they too have some interesting case studies and market perspectives. The editorial styles of each one are quite different.

    Please PM me if you'd like us to send you a complementary copy of YPN.

    I subscribe to a number of the magazines:

    - YPN

    - PIN

    - PropertyHub

    - RLA magazine

    My views in short are:

    1) RLA mag: some decent content but a bit too fusty for me; will probably appeal to a number of the more traditional "old style landlord" types who frequent this site.

    2) PropertyHub: nice magazine (I also like their podcast), with very little "course-selling" going on.  Some good content but could do with more content

    3) PIN: has some good content, and is not quite as heavily marketing-focused as YPN. I'd put this somewhere between YPN and PropertyHub

    4) YPN: does have loads of content, but too much of it is focused on case studies and showing what other people have done and not enough of the actual how to do something.  The contributors are very often people who are fairly new but they also want to want to upsell you something, e.g. the latest PPN or Simon Zutshi et course/masterclass/etc). I also think that e.g. the series on share trading strategies suggesting a novice can "beat the market" is in my view a bit dangerous (you can get lucky now and then, but you really really can't beat the market - I know this from my day job working in a bank).

    It's probably worth subscribing to PIN and YPN both, for a while, and seeing what you think of the content.

    The RLA used to email a weekly round up of relevant media stories, but that seemed to stop back in June?

    I prefer the RLA's mag to the NLAs, but as Rassie says, the content is a bit staid.

    That said, I prefer the NLA's templates over the RLA so swings and roundabouts.

    Just an anonymous opinion on the Internet.

    Its not possible for one magazine to deliver everything. With forums like PT and FB groups, you could easily get into "Information Overload". These are what I currently subscribe to:

    - YPN for strategies, case studies from other investors especially if you are considering increasing your portfolio. Less on being a landlord but experienced landlady (and NLA rep) Mary Latham has a great "detailed" 2 page spread on whats on the horizon (regulations, legislation). The case studies do go into WHAT someone has done and also HOW (if you read the article full). On more than one occasion, I have contact the person doing the case study with some questions and they have replied with valuable answers

    - NLA & RLA for landlording content
