Couple use equity to build property empire: case study on how to build a buy to let portfolio

Couple use equity to build property empire

Many people consider that a property portfolio is the perfect way to fund a more relaxed lifestyle with the potential to enjoy more travel. Indeed, one couple who described themselves as “tired of their day job,” used the equity from their family home to build a property empire that allowed them the flexibility to be independent of the daily grind.

Releasing equity to purchase rental property

The couple owned a London home whose value had soared, offering them the opportunity to release £100,000 of equity to fund the purchase of a small flat in the north side of the city. They had assessed the market and decided that the stagnant prices offered “room for growth”. They acknowledged the risks attached, but were determined to “hold our destiny in our own hands” and confident that they could deal with any consequences.

Building a buy to let property portfolio

Now, more than ten years later, the couple have a twenty-strong property empire worth more than £5 million. Although their initial investments were in the capital, as their portfolio grew momentum they expanded into the South of England. Focusing on properties in good school catchment areas with “excellent transport links,” they bought new-build properties due to their compliance with building regulations and the inherent tendency towards less prohibitive maintenance issues.
