My first property was purchased in 1985, with a hefty mortgage (£18’000) & a guarantor! I was a self-employed labourer working in my father’s business, Hudson Windows & here I learned quite quickly how the trading property could make me significantly more money than I could earn.
I have since invested in many parts of the UK in Listed farm buildings, Single lets, HMOs, small development sites & commercial property.
I have had experience in buying & selling property in Florida, Spain & southern Ireland – although not all good!
