Crossing the Ts!
At a new storage place in town, 2 mins from our apartments, we need this for linen and bedding and some tools for the cleaning staff and maintenance guys!
It’s all happening now 🙈
Tania just got here hands on another set of keys for a new SA! :O
Well done Tania! Fantastic to see people not slowing down for Christmas and still pushing all the way until the end of the year!
She also shared some of the key takeaways she learnt in the process below : 1. Always have a systemised list! In places like IKEA people like me get distracted with all the lovely things they push in front of you... you need to be able to keep a clear head and get the stuff you need on your list and not add lots of extras! I love having a systemised list which I can print off for every set up and tick off once it’s been done. You could even colour coordinate according to which shop you prefer to buy which items from ✅
2. Have a budget- like in the above point, always have a system, regardless of what standard of SA you provide and having a budget helps avoid temptation and distraction! 💰
3. Shop around for the items you need for competitive prices and quality. I know you can get most things from places like IKEA, but definitely for me it’s not nevessarily the best quality for everything or best price... and I like a bit of individuality!
4. Get WiFi sorted in your property as soon as your contract (if doing rent2SA) is signed. You can get a £9.99 dongle from PC world with a no commitment contract broadband whilst you wait for the long term broadband to be installed. I learnt this from James Mitchell who has been so kind and informative to me and has helped me no end. Before I knew this, I cancelled a booking in my recently set up SA as I didn’t want bad reviews due to lack of WiFi... DOH 🙈! 5. Avoid taking kids and family with you on the shop if you can... things take so much longer 😂
Any other random tips that people have re setting up and doing their shop to dress their SA units?

Enjoyed a great day's training on "No Money Down" property strategies with Kevin McDonell today. Our daughter, Faith, is home educated, so she came along to
learn about property, too!
Now it's time to IMPLEMENT!! 😉👍.

Villa Amici bedding down for winter.
It’s The Beeches a beautiful building? It was built approximately 1870 and replaced the original Manor House which housed Frederick Powel’s Academy for Boys in the early 1800’s. You can stay in apartment 1 and 3. Both are 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4 in each apartments or 8 if you had both) so perfect for small or larger groups!
Another set of keys :D
We LOVE seeing you guys hit your goals in our community! Its also important to remember its not all sunshine and rainbows in property. This was an awesome share from Kamila and well worth a read >
Yet another key pick up day!! And this time from beautiful Bath!! This was my first bespokely packaged deal via an agent. And this agent was one who nearly kicked me out of a viewing because their colleague failed to mention my intention for the property when I booked it!
And yet again the honesty, openness and respecting agent and landlords concerns and overcoming any issues got me this one in the pocket!
It’s not been without challenges - bespokely packaged for an investor who then pulled out (I didn’t take a reservation fee) - I have ended up packaging this deal to open market and closed it down to 2 new investors who were both ready to take it on, to then receive a phone call from the original investor saying that they have changed their mind and want it back!! The night before viewings with the new investors!! I could have kicked off a fuss, got all angry and ruin the relationship we have started to build but I chose to learn from it for the next time instead (there were a lot of f***s flying around after I got off the phone though!). Not only I have learned to protect myself better for the next time, I’ve proved that I can turn any situation around but also I have solidified the new investor relationship and we are looking to work on a lot more stuff together.
Be honest, be kind, and look after people you work with - it pays off ❤️ oh and look after your agents - we all deserve some Champagne!!
