Today we catch up with London based husband and wife team, Ajul & Roshni.
Like many of our clients, Ajul and Roshni found themselves drawn to the financial security and independence that investing in property offered them. After seeing our posts on a Facebook community group, they decided that now was the time to diversify their funds and start investing in BTL property.
We asked them about their decision to invest in the Leeds property market.
As is the case for many of our clients, Ajul and Roshni first discovered Lifestyle Property People through social media. After seeing our posts on a Facebook community group, they decided that now was the time to diversify their funds and start investing in BTL property.
Although the couple hadn’t spoken to any of our existing clients, they had seen us posting regularly for several months and felt confident knowing that others within the community had experienced our service and left glowing reviews.
Ajul and Roshni found themselves drawn to the financial security and independence that investing in property offered them.
With both having relatively well-paid jobs, they wanted to convert their savings into more time in the future, and with much of their time spent at work, they needed a more hands-off approach.
“I think this is a long-term strategy for both of us. We want to be in a position where we can rely on another source of income by the time we get to retirement.“
Ajul added, “It was also so we could become less reliant on our day jobs for income. Of course, 1 house isn’t going to move the needle much, but, over time, the investment could become quite substantial.”
Beyond creating a more passive income source for the future, they also wanted to diversify from the stocks and shares market where much of their wealth was invested.
Despite living and working in London, with Ajul growing up in the North and Roshni studying at the University of Nottingham, the couple had already bought into the idea of investing further away. The Yorkshire region quickly became a desirable choice, thanks to its relative affordability, the scope for growth, and the overall expected returns.
“I was won over by the simplistic nature of your model and seeing the number of satisfied clients.”
During his initial conversations with our Founder, Shiv Haria, Ajul was “won over” by the simplistic nature of our model and seeing the number of satisfied clients.
His trust and confidence increased throughout the process as he and Roshni got to interact with the rest of the team. “The first thing that both of us noticed was just how responsive your team were over WhatsApp, email or on the phone,” he said.
They also found great value in the weekly updates from our team, which clearly laid out the progress made, and any challenges faced with clear steps to resolve them. “Everybody I spoke to was very friendly and always happy to jump on a call, even if it was late on weekdays or weekends.”
Over the years, we’ve developed a property investment model that ensures excellent returns with minimal involvement from our clients, and Ajul and Roshni were quick to agree that their experience ticked both boxes.
After completion of the purchase, the couple built their own model to see just how close our team’s predicted returns were to the actual returns achieved.
“Impressively, the figure was accurate to within 1%!”
They also saw huge benefits in having an expert team on-side to provide a fully managed, end-to-end service. Roshni explained, “With our jobs, we rarely have time for each other, let alone the whole process of finding, purchasing, refurbishing and renting a BTL property 200 miles away. With Lifestyle Property People, we could trust them to do all the work on our behalf.”
“With Lifestyle Property People, we could trust them to do all the work on our behalf.”
The couple were so impressed with our team, our model, and the accuracy of the numbers, they’ve already decided to sign up to buy their second property with us.
