The best property podcasts
Article Posted - 11th October 2019
Podcasts are a great way to educate yourself, develop a skill and hone your knowledge. And the best thing? You can listen on the go. Whether you're cleaning, commuting or out for a walk, podcasts can be a useful and informative companion. Here are a few of our favourite property podcasts to get you tuned in.
The Property Podcast
The Property Podcast from Property Hub is the podcast for investors both new and experienced. The show is presented by Rob Dix, self-confessed property geek and the author of four books, and Rob Bence, who runs an investment consultancy. The duo discuss a different topic each week, inviting listeners to join in with their challenges or experiences. They both invest in UK property, so they practise what they preach. No hard sell, no bull, just straight-talking property investment advice. The weekly podcast covers everything from how to approach refurbs and how many mortgage applications you can apply for at once, to whether repossessed properties are mortgageable and what PM Boris Johnson will mean for property investors. The podcast boasts 32,000 members, more than 4,000 five-star reviews and 180,000 downloads a month.
The Property Geek Podcast
Rob Dix of The Property Podcast also presents another podcast called The Property Geek Podcast. In this podcast, Dix interviews financial specialists and experienced investors in a different area of UK property investment each week. He discusses the major issues in the interviewees' fields and draws out top tips for investors to benefit from. Recent podcasts range from how to choose the right type of funding for a project and how to raise funds with joint ventures to releasing lock-away equity and how to use peer-to-peer finance. This has a 4.5 out of 5 rating, so it is a popular podcast among investors.
Inside Property is the bi-monthly podcast hosted by seasoned investor and NLA representative Richard Blanco. This podcast looks to provide commentary and analysis on a wide range of property-related and housing-related issues. Recent podcasts include topics such as how to end a tenancy well and how to be an ethical landlord, as well as crime in the private and social rented sectors and whether, in light of Brexit, it's still a good time to invest.
Progressive Property Podcast
Hosted by the professional property investor Kevin McDonnell, the Progressive Property Podcast claims to help you make smarter property investments with little or no money. That is some claim, but with 140 episodes to listen to, the selection has a broad offering for new or experienced investors.
Whatever kind of investor you are, the Progressive Property Podcast says it will save you time and mistakes and help grow your knowledge and confidence to invest wisely. With the bonus of no ads, the podcast offers interviews from investors who have some of the UK's largest portfolios.
In October, McDonnell, who has hosted the podcast since 2017, held a live Q&A offering information on how to secure commercial development and how to structure your very first Joint Venture partnership.
Tej Talks Podcast
Launched in 2018 by investor Tej Singh, he began the podcast with the aim of sharing all the knowledge he'd learnt on the go, and sharing it in a relatable way, with other property investors. He wanted to rise above the ‘celebrity property investors' and instead bring ‘real stories' from everyday people. He covers everything from HMOs, Shared Accomodation, Right to Rent and Buy To Lets to lease options, commercial conversions and buying land. But he also touches on some of the so-called softer skills and topics. Some of his latest podcasts include ‘How to View a Property – a Beginner's Guide', ‘Emotional Intelligence and Entrepreneurship' and ‘My First Property Auction'. iTunes listeners of Tej Talks give him a 5 out of 5 rating.
The NLA podcast
The NLA podcast re-launched last year with a shorter format making it easy for busy landlords to get an in depth insight into key issues facing the PRS. The podcast, hosted by NLA Representative Richard Blanco, covers a wide range of topics from government policy announcements to issues with Universal Credit to how landlords can take care of their mental health. Using the NLA's own experts and those from other organisations in the PRS, the NLA podcast makes the more complex parts of landlord life easier to understand. It's available on both iTunes and Soundcloud.
