As you may already be aware, The Buy2Let Shop are regular features at The Property Investor & Homebuyer Show in London; the country’s biggest property investment event. We also host regular free property seminars in London, which are open to anyone interested in buy-to-let properties for sale, and developing a successful portfolio.
From time to time, we get asked if it’s really worthwhile attending these sorts of events, or whether they’re just a scam to get people investing ASAP. Whilst there are scams out there, reputable property investment seminars and events are incredibly valuable – and can greatly boost your ROI. Here’s more information.
Why Should You Attend a Property Seminar?
- You can get valuable insight. Attending a property seminar or similar event is the ideal opportunity to find out more about the housing market, and get some helpful tips on how to invest successfully.
- You can talk to industry experts. Hopefully, you should be given the chance to chat to people who’ve been working in the industry for years – who can answer your questions and give you some useful advice.
- You can network with others. These events are often the perfect place to build your professional network. Other landlords and investors will be happy to give you tips regarding recommended suppliers and contractors, managing tenants, and much more; and it’s easy to stay in touch via email or social media.
- You’ll gain access to top-quality properties. At a well-run, reputable event, you can expect to be shown genuine property investment opportunities, not houses that they’re trying to get rid of. Then it’s up to you to decide if you want to invest in any of their buy-to-let properties for sale or not.
How Can You Tell If It’s a Scam?
- If there’s a hard sell. A good property investment seminar will showcase a range of available buy-to-let properties for sale, which you may or may not be interested in. A scam seminar will try to push you into buying, in a ‘hard-sell’ manner. We don’t condone this practice whatsoever.
- If it doesn’t actually impart any information. Alarm bells should start ringing if you’re not actually learning anything new about the property market. If the seminar is 100% focused on trying to sell you something, then it’s probably a scam (unless they’re open about this fact prior to the event).
- If they pester you afterwards. It’s normal to receive a few emails after the event, particularly if you’ve signed up to receive them! However, if you’re getting daily nuisance-calls or emails, this is another matter entirely, and a sure-fire sign that the company isn’t reputable. No professional property investment agent needs to pester – their reputation means that people come to them, not the other way around!
