Frequently Asked Questions

1.Who is propertyCEO for?2019-08-17T15:39:19+01:00

We train business owners and entrepreneurs how to generate wealth through property development. With 65+ years of business and property knowledge under our belts, experience has taught us that business owners have the ideal set of skills to take advantage of the property development model, even if they have no previous property experience. As serial business owners ourselves we recognise the challenges that many business owners face; the entrepreneur’s dream can easily become a nightmare when profits, cashflow and sales fail to materialise when they’re supposed to. Creating a second income using property development whilst still being able to run your existing business can be a great way to get back on track financially and can over time allow you to generate significant 6 or 7 figure returns.

2.Isn’t property development considered an ‘advanced’ property strategy?2019-07-29T15:22:50+01:00

This is a common misconception; you simply don’t need to cut your teeth on other strategies to ‘earn the right’ to become a property developer. Many people are told that they need to start with buy-to-lets and rent-to-rents before moving on to HMOs and serviced accommodation. Only then could they consider property development. We strongly disagree – with development not only are you able to leverage other people’s expertise more effectively than with other strategies, you also get significantly better returns.

3.What skills do I need to become a property developer?2019-08-17T15:42:09+01:00

The beauty of property development is that the developer makes most of the profit yet he or she acts primarily as a coordinator. You don’t need to project manage or lay bricks or draw plans. Having found a suitable project, your role is to hire other people to do this for you and to coordinate their efforts. Business owners already possess the core qualities needed to do this, namely good communication, management, organizational and people skills. In fact they use these skills every day without thinking they could also use them to develop property!

4.Do I need to have my own capital to develop property?2019-08-17T16:16:30+01:00

No. Property development provides much higher returns than most other investments and with interest rates where they are, there’s a huge amount of investment capital out there looking to find property projects to invest in. Developers may choose to use their own cash if they wish, but we teach our students how to obtain all of the finance they need, externally through private and commercial lenders.

5.How does propertyCEO differ to other property courses?2019-08-17T15:52:19+01:00

Well for starters, we don’t sell training courses. Our job is to turn business owners into property developers. We do that by making sure we only work with a select group of people; people that we’ve spoken to personally and assessed that they have what it takes to be successful as a developer. You can’t buy our services online and we don’t offer a range of other services unrelated to the business owners that we serve.

When people have a burning need or desire to create a better financial situation for themselves, they don’t want a sticking plaster – they want a solution. Our job is to provide that solution.

6.How can I find out more about your services?2019-08-17T16:00:13+01:00

If you feel we may be able to help, simply drop an email to enquiries@propertyceo.co.uk and we’ll be in touch to set up a call. We can then work out between us whether there’s a good fit, and take things from there.

7.Why is property development preferable to other property ‘strategies’?2019-08-17T16:06:30+01:00

The main reason is that the returns are greater for the volume of effort deployed when compared to other types of property strategy. We also believe that most business owners already have the core skills to become a property developer; they simply need to learn some additional knowledge and also how to channel those skills to make it happen. That’s the part that propertyCEO delivers.

8.Why do you only serve business owners?2019-08-17T16:25:41+01:00

Quite simply it’s because they tend to get the best results. They also often have the biggest need. A high proportion of businesses fail within 3 years, and even for successful companies, the journey can often be a stressful one. Long hours, little rewards, poor cashflow and the realisation that what started out as a dream has simply become a job, and not a very pleasant job at that. An unknown future often awaits. We aim to help our clients create a substantial second revenue stream that enables them to move quite often from a dark and stressful place in their current business to one where their financial worries are behind them.
