Cuppa Coffee is a property meetup group started by Tom Dylan (of Great Northern Property - Ace Name) in Manchester back in 2012, pre pandemic it was a weekly at Cuppa Coffee shop on Salford quays. It’s a super friendly group and with active and supportive investors and people involved in all aspects of the industry. The group has great WhatsApp message group too where we all share and help each other on this adventure. It’s also where I met my current mortgage broker, the excellent Redbrick Finance, who managed to save an apartment block deal for me that my previous broker was not able to handle.

Tactical thinking is do i invest in HMOs or Serviced Accomodation or other styles. You have to have the right strategy first to make the right decisions. The podcast talks about how to define that goal and continually review and update using the process sketched below
