GPS Property

Property Investment Case Study: Dave Edwards

Having already began his property investment journey some years previously, Dave wanted to grow his portfolio considerably and quickly. Appreciating that his time was better spent elsewhere (i.e. on the football pitch!), Dave quickly began a working relationship with GPS that helped his portfolio grow by 200% within 14 months.

GPS helped Dave to identify a strategy for him to grow his portfolio by 100% in 6 months with minimal time input from him. This was done by carefully understanding why Dave was investing in property and then setting strict criteria from the outset to ensure that Dave’s ultimate goals were to be not only reached, but surpassed.

The process began for Dave with an initial meeting with Gary Preston, owner and founder of GPS. Following this, Gary initially found Dave his first 3 properties within 2 months with sales agreed and legal proceedings starting.

To this point Dave’s involvement, in terms of time, had been approximately 2 hours- and this included the initial meeting!

Over the coming months several more properties were secured for Dave and he soon realised that he could not only grow his portfolio by 100% but surpass this quite comfortably. Once Dave decided to grow his portfolio further, GPS worked alongside his financial advisor and also introduced him to a property specialist accountant in order to look at the most monetary and tax effective way to continue to grow his portfolio.

This involved looking at setting up a limited company and alternative forms of financing, other then traditional Buy To Let mortgages.

Once completed, Gary and GPS continued to find and secure properties for Dave using their network of agents, individuals and professionals in the Shropshire region. Along the way, there were numerous obstacles to overcome but as and when they arose, they were met head-on by GPS and dealt with in a timely manner to ensure that Dave’s portfolio to continued to grow.

14 months on and Dave’s portfolio has grown significantly, with the total time input from him to achieve this being just 45 hours. Pretty impressive when you consider that the time to purchase just one property can take anything up to 40 hours!
