We love that service accommodation can work from anywhere. The SA business has grown exponentially but don’t let that put you off, this wonderful business has many rewards. The key to starting a successful SA business is choosing the right area that has the potential to make you great profits, and that can’t be decide on a assumption. These are the initial first steps we look for before making a investment in any area.
10 MINS FROM CITY CENTRE - Look for properties that are within a 10 minute commute to a city centre. City centres will generate interest both for corporate clients and Leisure lets. Try to understand what the visiting potential is. What historical landmarks are in the area? Does this area hold popular annual events? what Business are operating in the area and are there any large companies moving in/ out of the area? How will this positively or negatively effect the area?
PARKING: Parking is not always a option, but experience tells us people will choose properties with parking over ones without. Alternatively look for locations with plenty of on street or off street parking.
CLOSE TRANSPORT LINKS - Walking distance to main transport links is a MUST - The mix of clients staying in your apartment may need transport to get to meetings or you could be dealing with Leisure clients who want to travel to the surrounding areas.
CLOSE AMENITIES Check to see what the local amenities are like, hospitals, parks, shopping facilities.
COMPETITION IN THE AREA - Always check your local competition. Check for Hotels, short stay, vacation homes and serviced apartments on sites such as bookings.com and Air B&B. You should be looking for the Ave price & occupancies within the area.
If you price correctly and provide a slightly better accommodation than the rest out there.... you will get bookings.

We love a good espresso coffee in the morning!☕
Whilst sipping on mine this morning I got to thinking... does anyone here provide coffee machines in their HMOs or do you just think that's just for a Serviced Accommodation model? 🤔

Beautiful morning, Everyone!
Did you know that a CGI starts from clay models before it turns into a beautiful image? Yes, it does. Everything has to start from scratch and this is is the first step to creating an awesome and photo-realistic CGI. 👍
Delighted to welcome Rob Wilkinson to present on the challenges he has faced this year. Personally the most amazing challenge I think he has faced in terms of endurance by far is rowing from Barcelona to Ibiza- the full video is on my Facebook page, and to get the full detail- of this task which took over 60 hours come along on Thursday 5th September when Rob will be talking about how he managed to do this challenge with little endurance rowing before, whilst at the same time running a PropTech business.

I just love a deal!! ⠀ ⠀
Picked up this ex display front door for £450, not sure exactly how much it would be but gotta be upwards of 2 bags from anywhere. We have saved at least £500 on our front door budget of £1k, and the plan is to keep this property and switch to a BTL so the budget is tight but this enables us to deliver a high quality home that we are proud! ⠀ ⠀
This will be used at Thundercats, which I think will give it abit more curb appeal and for less than the price of a normal composite front door.... better product at a cheaper price!! ⠀ ⠀
Will be more bargains coming up as my hunt for cheap stuff hits over drive! Picking some building materials up later today which I will post in my stories, not sure he’s got what yet so it’s like Christmas for me.... ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #property#propertyinvesting#propertydevelopment#propertydeveloper#bargain#deal#fliplife#hustle#norwich#norfolk#house#home#propertyinvestor#btl#aluminium#modern#design

Rising 50 storeys, the ultra-modern DAMAC Tower will stand out as a new icon on the London skyline.
Stone, terracotta and glass come together in a fresh and distinctive world-class design to create an inspiration in luxury living, inside and out. The unique and balanced architectural composition has been carefully crafted to create impressive views from every aspect of the building.
Versace is a whole world of luxury, a design vision that spreads from the catwalk to the very interiors that surround us. Founded in 1978, it is now led by artistic director Donatella Versace, who mixes the mythology of the house with the finest craftsmanship and 21st century innovation. The result is the ultimate in luxury, the ultimate in Versace.
Nine Elms is already home to the New Covent Garden Market, the brand-new US Embassy and Battersea Power Station, a cherished feature of the London skyline. It’s also blessed with almost two miles of Thames river frontage, and will be lined with cafés, bars, restaurants, cultural attractions and public space as part of the planned regeneration.
What’s more, a new linear park will make it one of the greenest districts on London’s South Bank and will create 50 acres of new public space. All this, and a host of other historic landmarks within a short distance.
The DAMAC Tower experience is not constrained by four walls – step outside and you’ll enjoy new walkways and a beautiful public piazza in which to relax and unwind. A brand new courtyard is being created, brimming with lively cafés and shops to visit. Each of the building’s outdoor spaces will be unique, with its own focal sculptures, water features and landscaping aesthetic, all complemented by stylish furniture and specialist lighting.
Jesselton Hotel is the oldest and first modern hotel built in Sabah following World War II. Because of the extent of the bombings, the town of Kota Kinabalu (known as Jesselton at the time) was devastated. Sir Herbert Ralph Hone, who was the Colonial Governor of Jesselton, encouraged British Hong Kong Chinese businessmen to invest and help rebuild the area. Due to this investment, the Jesselton hotel was constructed in 1954 at Gaya Street.
Due Diligence; Can only hope that people will learn to do their Due Diligence.
In property avoid investing in an asset which do not exist.
We get atleast 4 cases per week,
2 For clients who have failed to make any profit and now looking to exit by saving what they can. Many examples of these.
Another 2, coming and looking for us to fund via our Mezannie arm of the business but have no clear PG? Instead a dream or an asset which doesn't exist.
In most cases, where we decide not to Invest in these is due to them or their developer charging or making ££££'S and leaving very little scope for profit, In most reorts even their RICS states that clearly.
So make sure you read all professional reports belong to the project.
Follow the rule: Before you invest, look out for what security or PG the project / company is offering before jumping into the idea of making 8 - 10%
Yet another example of why samples are SO important! Colours, sizes etc can look so very different in pictures and in showrooms. We have quite a large space to fill and we think the slightly bigger herringbone would work best over the thinner one now we’ve seen some samples. We were also pretty set on the second grey tile but in the light in our space, we now think the larger top shade. Still awaiting a sample of Treverkmood in Tiglio as we’ve fallen in love with that when drooling over @insidenumbersixteen, but again, we’ll have to see how it looks in our space. Here’s hoping it looks as amazing 🙏🏻
Still haven’t ruled out the tiles in the last but one pic either should we have a sudden change of heart 😳 Thoughts @monaghananita? 😘
Following on from my last mood board, I decided to create an open plan living and kitchen using the same colour palette to demonstrate how this design could be applied.
The corner sofa and kitchen units have the two different shades of blue, with mustard accents being used on the dining chairs and cushions. I’ve also picked out mustard in the print used for the statement chair and a matching cushion.
Darker teal has also been included via soft furnishings and a tolix chair.
The mood board referenced a mix of wooden materials, so I’ve included a pale chevron wooden floor, a distressed wooden dining table, a walnut tv unit and a mid oak side table. Lots of visual interest!
I decided to keep the dining table, worktops and rug fairly neutral colour to help ground the entire space.
I hope you like it! Floor plan created using @sketchup_official and rendered using Photoshop.

We’ve decided to use a very vibrant colour palette of aubergine and light blue in this open plan apartment, dotted with very soft grey. There is a consistent approach to how this colour palette has been applied, can you see how we’ve done this?! The sofa and custom storage in the bedroom are aubergine and the kitchen units, bedding and rug include dollops of blue.
The soft grey carpet has been used in the bedroom and utility with a similar tone of tiling in the wet room. Then we’ve repeated this tone on the armchairs in the living area.
Creating consistency like this helps to create a harmonious environment, and a very cohesive design overall.
To make sure there’s enough visual interest, the colour palette has been broken up using marble and that awesome chevron flooring.
