193: Qualified chartered accountant and owner of Comfort Lettings, Phil Ashford, talks HMOs, the student market, and diversifying your portfolio
Manage episode 185389624 series 181693
Today I am delighted to be joined by Phil Ashford, a chartered accountant who developed an interest in HMOs whilst living in one as a student in Nottingham. He calculated how much his landlord was likely making and decided he needed to get in on the action, so with a couple of friends as JV partners, he bought, renovated and refinanced his first student house share, and the rest is history.
He's now operating one of the top student letting agencies in the city, and as well as continuing to grow his own portfolio has found a great niche helping other landlords enter the Nottingham Student market as well.
