16 And Cant Wait To Get Started...!

Recommended Posts

A topic posted on Squealing Pig today. What on earth.... :o

Hello,

I am Thomas Y***, 16 (yesterday in fact) and I am really interested in Property Developing and Investing.

I am currently saving up for a deposit for a house which I will aim to buy upon my 18th Birthday! haha.

I have read plenty of books and also ebooks from propertysecrets regarding property and investment, I have also been in contact with Nick Rampley-Sturgeon and Ajay Ahuja via my uncle who is also a property investor! (just turned millionaire!)

I am welcome to help definatly and any advice from all you fellow young investors!

I do have one major question that has been on my mind recently and it is that of whether one of my goals I set is realistic? The goal is to retire at age 35 (after investing for 17 Years) with as many properties as possible or whatever it takes, but most importantly to have £20 million net in the bank for my future????!!!

Does anyone think this is possible??

Thanks very much for your time and I hope to deal with many people in the future on this great forum!

thanks and regards,

Thomas

My advice would be to take out a massive loan, get some buy to lets, panic when prices drop, sell with negative equity, and then declare yourself bankrupt. Then get a proper job in Tesco, save for a few years and then buy something to live in.

Obviously kids aren't taught about bubble economics at his school...

I would like to be able to read, but I was told it's not worth it by my uncle, who is also a waster living off the state (just out of prison!!)

All credit to the guy :) It's people like that who are willing to take risks that will be successfull in their lives.

Although I think his timing is a little bit wrong.

How about

"My name is Thomas and I am stupid enough to think that money grows on trees like my Uncle Ajay says. I have just missed the biggest house price increase in living memory so have decided that now is the ideal time to buy and make my fortune too. I am also thinking of starting in London where I have heard the streets are paved with gold"

I wouldn't mind betting that most seriously rich people got that way through property investment, so don't knock him!

Come off it. He's been swept along in the euphoria of HPI (presumably led by his Ma and Pa) and will get into the market just as it crahes. TO get rich is spotting the opportunities that others have missed. It's all about timing. ;)

I am welcome to help definatly and any advice from all you fellow young investors!

My local Chav's drive a Yaris... look at me.. I am that posh..

Its crashing already... :) trust me..

the BBC reported the ODPM figures as a boom and I sent that link showing that it is dropping all over.

they are about to become very active in telling the truth..

I expect them to thank me any day soon..

they must have been so embarrased to be caught out in a mistake that must have seemed like a cynical lie to the more un trusting..

and honest mistake I am sure

My name is Thomas and i want to be really rich. I have found some shares that Warren Buffet bought a while back and they have been doing really well. I have extrapolated the profit they will make me in the future (using my grade A*** GCSE maths) and found that i will be a zillionaire by the age of 25. For some reason older people do not have faith in my plan. What could possibly go wrong???

But to be fair to the little chap (if he does actually exist) he probably knows more about houses than the average 16 year old.

The guy is 16. he ain't a clue what risk is. Bit like that software millionaire kid who lost it all on a Channel Islands airline venture.

Face it: all he has is a lust for money. Truly unique :lol:

This little fella might not be as daft as you think.

Saving up to buy a house in 2008 – 2009.

Not daft at all.

Your view vis-a-vis his intelligence is predicated upon two assumptions:

1 . the market falls now and will have finished unwinding in record time

2 . he is expecting this.

1 is anyone's guess, 2 is patently wrong.

LOL, this kid obviously doesn't have a girlfriend ! :D

Once he gets laid he'll stop compenstaing for his sexual frustration by dreaming of being rich ...... or maybe he thinks getting rich will get him a girlfriend ...... yup thats it !

The fact that at 16 he has a goal of sorts set's him well apart from most of his peers.

16 now so realistically won't buy for at least 2 years which probably won't be the absolute best time to buy but if the market continues to level, then there could well be many, many bargains to be had.

Why the negativity?

And I dread to think what some on here were doing at 16.

Come to think of it, your probably posting on HPC :D

Quite. The words 'boat' and 'missed' come to mind. Rather like the BTLer who bought my terrace house in N London from me. It sat empty for 4 months and next door but one (much higher spec) sold for exactly the same this year. Ho-hum... <_<

There is nothing wrong with ambition - and having goals and targets is a really successful way of going about life.

However;

I think that Thomas has been influenced by the media hype around property.

Here, the very thought of a house price crash is seen as illogical:

"Prices always go up...."

If you look at the house price index at the minute and read any legible media on the topic, nobody believes that there is anywhere left for the house market to go.

Look at the cycles of house prices in the past and cycles of other things (like oil, gold, shares prices) and you'll see that buying property in 2 years time would be a disaster.

If you are looking to get into making money - look at setting up your own business.

Another option to get into is the stock market. It is easier to buy and sell shares that it is to sell bricks and mortar, and the initial barriers are much lower (i.e. to buy your first property you'll need a down payment, personal income and a mortgage + probably a guarantor.

You've missed the property boat - but if you are good at spotting trends (and I imagine that if you were 20 now instead of 16 you would have really exploited the rising market) you should be able to retire rich and young.

My name is Lulu - I am 2. I started my BTL empire with a credit card issued to the family goldfish. I now own a massive empire of HMOs in "junkie havens" like Hastings, where I exploit the desperate. Pay your rent sharpish or I'll post dogsh*t through your letterbox.

A one bed flat in a reasonable part of town would do me!

My advice - discover HPC sites and learn about cycles.

On the basis that you'll never be able to afford a car?

What's the next trend then? I'm thinking of opening a pawnbrokers - though a pornbrokers would probably be a better idea.
