From the Inside Flap
It is no longer acceptable for the analysis of the UK property market to be conducted on a national basis. Investors that go beyond this have been making a 'killing' - there is no other word for it! One such investor, a chartered accountant and property guru named Ajay Ahuja, has devised a model that ALL professional investors should follow. It is this model, the property clock, that has taken him from an initial investment of £500 to a portfolio of 100 properties worth over £6m in less than 5 years. The clock has emerged and is here to stay due to: every area within the UK's ability to operate to its own fundamentals; the introduction of the buy-to-let mortgage in the late 90s; the propensity of property prices to be volatile; the stable nature of market rents; The ever-existence of bandwagon-type investors. Ajay will show you: how to define a cold, cooling, warm and hot spot and how to find each type of spot; why professional investors sell exclusively in cooling spots; why the owner-occupiers and novice investors are the only ones left in the cold spots; how to calculate the bubble element in any property and why you should buy only properties with a negative bubble that burst in your favour; how to calculate the real value of a property under any environment; how to lock in certain growth by doing nothing; how to lock in certain growth by making the right enhancements and how to quantify the size of the gain.
