Glenn Armstrong is a property millionaire “Guru”. He has numerous development projects running throughout the UK. On his website Glenn also says he has a track record of appearing in the media to talk about property investing.
I attended one of Glenns free property investing days (2 hours) and found it very engaging and informative. I got the impression Glenn is clearly motivated to teach people how to invest in property and escape the rat race.
The day is ofcourse a sales pitch for his main 4 day property investor course. The course looks well structured and appropriate for complete beginners to experienced investors.
On the free day, Glenn covers some Concepts covered by the course and also throws in some motivational stuff:-
STRATEGY. You need one first that is appropriate to you. BTL for income? Flipping properties for profit? etc
BELIEF. Mindset IS important
KNOWLEDGE is an ASSET.
LEVERAGE. More properties mean more cash flow as well as capital appreciation leading to more income and growth.
‘Micro Markets‘ based on your chosen strategy, learn how to select the best towns that give you best yields (rent to price ratio if you opt for BTL). If you are flipping, look at low yield towns, the average time to sell etc.
MONEY. Glenn covered at high-level concepts such as Lease Options, Joint Ventures, Property Sourcing, private finance, bridging finance, negotiation and refinancing. If you do 4 property flips in one year and make £20K per flip, that’s £80K which is a reasonable sum of money.
OPPORTUNITY. Auctions (you can buy before or after the auction). Its a case of ‘buyer beware’ at auction.
As I mentioned above the free day is informative, more so than other free property investor days, but you don’t necessarily need to go. You can read these kinds of reviews and make a decision as to which course you would like to take, however on the day they said they were offering a discount for the course which brought the price down to about £300 if I remember correctly. Maybe phone them the day before to ask what price will be offered on the day and then check it with the current price on their website.
Course Cost: £300 – £400 (see above)
Additional support: Glenn will give guidance and direction initially. Private Facebook Group and also the chance to network and enter into Joint Venture deals with more experienced property buyers and developers to share and minimise risk. There may be more support than this so you will need to double check.
Is it Worth It?
From what I can make out… yes! Glenn is highly motivated and the return in the investment in the course if you implement your chosen strategy could pay big dividends.
