‘In an ideal world, you want to make £250,000 from your first development’

‘I always like to do smaller sites where we can be in and out of the deals within a 12-15 month period’


How to become a developer and make 250,000 pounds on your first or next development deal. This is part three, and we’re going to be looking at the options of how to fill or flip your site’s how to become a developer and make 250,000 pounds from just your first development. Part three, Hey, my name is Leah Ryan. And I am a professional property investor. I love business property entrepreneurship. And I’ve been doing a mini series on how to find great sites, how to fund your sites. And now we are talking about how to feel or flip the sites. Now there are a number of different ways in which you can make big profits from developments. Let’s take a look now at what many people do you find great sites, you then get the site funded using your own money or using other people’s money, that’s always my best option. And then, once you’ve built the houses, you can then flip that on, and you can sell those houses for you to make your developer profits.

Now typically, if you aren’t going to do your first site, in an ideal world, you’d want to be making at least 250,000 pounds from your first development, like the minimum is 100,000 pounds. And for your first development, you don’t want to be going too big. And perhaps you know, if you can make six or 700,000 pounds, that would be great. I believe anything bigger than that, you’re going to be doing a development, which could just be too risky. take too much time, I always like to do the smallest sites where we can be in and out of the deals within a 12 to 15 month period. Now, when you make your first 250,000, so you flip the site on, of course, let’s just say that’s after corporation tax, that then gives you 250,000 pounds. And you’ve got a couple of options. Number one, you can spend it as not a good thing. Number two, you can invest it. And what about number three are you spend a little bit of course treat yourself, but also invest that money into other assets. So for example, a great development strategy is make you 250,000 pounds, then use that money, break it down into five deposit pots. And now you’ve got 50,000 pounds, which you can use as a deposit across five houses, all of a sudden, you now own five houses, you can use them as serviced accommodation HMO or good old single let’s, and you’ve been able to do that, from the profits made from a site where you use none of your own money, you know, that is really, really, really incredible. So you then start to build up a cash flowing, asset backed business using the profits from developments. And what you can also do is then use that money to invest into different asset classes. Maybe you like gold or watches or classic cars or different types of bonds and trusts and things along those lines.

I always love property because you do the work once and you get paid forever. And if you get the right property in the right location, the price will continue to go. So if you’re going to follow that development strategy, what is very important is that you build what your local area is wanting to have. There’s no point building two bedroom flats. If the market wants three bedroom flats, there’s no point you’re building million pound houses if the market wants 234 bedrooms, semi detached or detached properties. So when you find your sites, you can then do local research. You can speak to local planners, you can speak to the agents, you can see what selling fast what the demand is like. And my recommendation is always build what your local area is looking for right now. And that can change every two to three years, depending on supply depending on demand depending on who’s moving into the area, depending on other developments that are taking place. As because you wouldn’t want to build something where there all of a sudden there’s an oversaturation. So that’s one option. The second option is that you can find a great piece of land for an agent, Director vendor, you can then fund that piece of land using your own money or other people’s money. And then you buy, you build, and then you refinance. And by refinancing, hopefully you’ve added enough value to the property to the build, when you refinance, you can pull out all of the original investment capital, and let’s just say you’ve built three houses, you’ve then got three houses for free, yes, you can get houses for free, it depends on what the end value is the gross development value, maybe you’ll leave a bit of money in. But hey, even if you left 20,000 pounds in each deal, hey, you’ve got three houses for 60,000 pounds, and then you can maybe get a tenant in there. And then the tenant will keep paying you time and time and time and time again. So that’s also another great way in which you can build a property portfolio. By build refinance, keep the units, there is a third way where if you’re doing multiple properties on a site, then you might keep half and sell half. So you get money at the end. And you also get to keep some of the property the the opportunity right now in the marketplace is really, really big. It’s really exciting time, the UK is in short demand of houses right now, the mind is going up. And I just believe that anyone can be a developer, it doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’re from, or what your situation is, of course, you need to get educated.

You need to hang around great people, get yourself some great mentors. And I’m really proud of what we’ve been able to do over the last eight years assets for life. We are now the UK is leading property business and wealth training organization, we’ve got 1000s and 1000s of success stories, and you could be that next person. So the question is, are you ready to become a developer? Are you ready to change your life? Are you ready to get out of the rat race? Are you ready for you, your loved ones to live the life that you truly deserve? And desire? You are literally one site away from a completely different life? How many hours right now?
