Wandsworth Property Networking with Richard Bowser

  • September 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Guest speakers Richard Bowser from Property investor news magazine and Rory Shackleton, one of the UK's most respected mortgage brokers..

 

Risk and reward- making sense of investment prospects into 2014- Presentation by Richard Bowser.

One of the very few independent market commentators who from 2002 regularly warned private investors as to the very clear risk factors relating to the purchase of new buld apartments for investment, Richard in early 2007 also emphatically predicted that mortgage lending would quickly become more difficult and expensive and that investors should aviod carrying excessive debt levels on low yielding property.

Six later the impact of the banks' increased risk aversion to property lending is plain to see, but in 2007 the boom was still in progress and Richard's oft issued words of caution were foolishly ignored by many investors who are now in negative equity or have had their property repossessed.

Over the last eleven years Richard has regularly spelt out to investors the inherent risk of speculative investment strategies based on low yields and excessively high loan to value borrowing.  He has also been a consistently fierce critic of the culture of "free money" promoted by the now mainly defunct property seminar/marketing clubs.

As a sought after speaker at many national property investor and regional landlord events since 2002, Richard's views are widely recognised and valued, most importantly of course by the thousands of regular subscribers to "Property Investor News".

“ After having attended several property meetings, my expectations were really low in advance of this meeting. I was happily surprised about the caliber of the people and the panel Brendan had gathered. It was very useful, and I can highly recommend it to anyone with or without experience in property investing. ”

“ What a fantastic meetup! Interesting & topical content given by guests speakers and invaluable advice, knowledge and experience shared by members of the panel. I highly recommend attending if you have any questions regarding property investing or if you simply want to enjoy the company of truly successful Property Investors. I am only just starting out as a Property Investor and cannot thank everyone who attended for the advice and support I have received so far. Brilliant! Definitely see you at the next event! ”

“ Fantastic. I always walk away with renewed vigour and solutions to property problems that I had not considered myself. What the regular attendees don't know about property at this event probably ain't worth knowing! ”

“ 5 Star! Anyone interested in property investing especially in the residential market - this must be the best Network Event they could possibly attend. The quality and expertise remains exceptionally high, Brendan runs a small but perfectly formed event. If you're interested in property - DON'T MISS IT!!!!! ”

“ This is where the experts meet the experts! Anybody who is looking for a wealth of information will be surrounded by a wealth of knowledgeable and very helpful people. Everybody likes to be in a position to do business. However this is one of the least "pitchy" groups. More help less people trying to flog you snake oil. I like it! ”

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
