Hello landlords,

I am seeking to buy a property  portfolio. Are you selling all or part of your portfolio? This could be anywhere in England or Wales.

How can you prove you're not a timewaster for those of us that are interested?

Hello Hippogriff,

Thanks a lot for your post .
The quickest way to ascertain this is to drop me an email with what you have . Iíll then tell you what I can do right there and then. You either say yes or no. My email is rent22buy@gmail.com

It might be more wise to ascertain if you have a budget / limit first of all... because if I hit you with a list of 30 properties (which I wouldn't, but someone else might) I doubt you can say your budget is unlimited. I have been thinking of selling-up and getting into Bitcoin... I bought a small fraction of one the other day on eToro and within a day, even with the spread, I had made 22%... if I had bought more BTC I would have made 22% of more (without any extra effort required).

I also bought 10,000,000 Shiba Inu coins... but that hasn't turned out quite so well.

Hello Hippogriff.

I would love to tell you my net worth and also my  access to capital but not on a  public forum. Email me and we can take this discussion off line.

On another note. BITCOIN! Are you serious? I just cannot wrap my head around it  and I feel as though I am missing out.  To sell your portfolio and invest in bitcoin is quite bold and of course intriguing. Aren't you afraid that Bitcoin will turn out like Shina Inu coins?  That's it, I am going to set aside a week to learn about this. If I loose, I will haunt you in your sleep  :D


In the meantime, test the waters and hit me with 10 properties.

Bitcoin - my enigma...

Is anyone else doing this? Bitcoins instead of Properties?

I invested in HOOD just the other day... I opened a mere $2,000 position at exactly 14:31:56... sold them all again at 14:34:50, making a modest $162.68 in those few minutes. And no-one complained about the roof leaking or the fence having blown down. Nice. The thing is... I did the same research for my little quick HOOD gamble as anyone else did... I had $2,000... but someone else might have had $20,000, or $200,000... we both did the same research and arrived at the same conclusion and then took the same action at the same time... our effort was the same... and our outcome was the same (in %age terms)... yet, I made some small money... and he would have made 10x or 100x in absolute terms. That is how the rich get even richer, because they're rich to start with. And, after all that, my 'research' amounted to the fact I liked the idea of HOOD... Robinhood Markets (I don't know what his research was, but in my example it was the same).

If you have significant net worth and access to capital then I feel you wouldn't be looking at buying portfolios up from Landlords. It's much more likely to be some complicated scheme or at attempt at finding distressed sellers. I had only asked how we can be sure you're not a timewaster... "talk to me offline" isn't a response that inspires any confidence - I'm sure you must see that as clearly as I do? This is not an attack, so please don't be offended, I'm just saying this population here is not gullible or naÔve... we're actually more hard-nosed, skeptical and - somewhat - suspicious than you might think - but, even so, as a Moderator I have a job to do to try and protect the population from sharks. So if you have something genuine to offer that is not a con or an attempt at a kind of carpetbagging... tell us. We won't rail against it, unless it is inherently dodgy. Remember, there is nothing romantic about being a Landlord.

BTC has been bouncing at numbers between $37,000 and $42,000 for the last few days or a week... plenty of space for making money, for those that are careful and can afford to lose if it all goes wrong. Back in April 1 Bitcoin was over $60,000! Obviously some people thought it was on its way to $100,000 at that time and are now spending their days crying.

Bitcoin seems to have made a lot of money for some very savvy geeky people right at the beginning.I think it's like pyramid selling,the clever ones start it then get the hell out.There's a big criminal element now from what I have been told,so not for the fainthearted.

I am not one to take risks,so I am getting out of property and going into tulip bulbs.

When the Shiba Inu coin was created the creator gave (effectively without consent) half of the total number of coins to some influential crypto. person as a self-promotion / marketing gambit... who then promptly donated 50,000,000,000,000 of them to a charity (worth about $1,000,000,000 in the real world) and then destroyed the other 90%. This caused the price to tank, from which is has not yet recovered... so I bought 10,000,000 of them, thinking - "it can only go up". I'm not 100% correct... of course it can go down, but not by much before it just disappears and I think - "oh well"... and that is truly my outlook.

Seriously though,despite all the drawbacks,I still think bricks and mortar are a good bet for your average person.

My Shiba Inu coins are up 17.59% today. For me that's $35.43... but for someone who owns many billions of them... well.

A Tenant called me yesterday to say there was a leak coming in from above a window (but not the one above, so not the roof) and it seems like I'll need to do a bit of pointing tomorrow evening... cryptocurrencies don't do that to me.

Heavy Karma I agree with the bricks and mortar being a great bed, though no one could have envisioned the impact Covid has had / is having on landlords. But nothing without an element of risk I suppose.

Whatís this about tulip bulbs 😁? It sounds as risky as Bitcoins. Are you already in it?

That is just me being silly. Have you not heard what happened in Holland in the 17th.century? Google tulip mania,there's nothing new under the sun!  Hippogriff is more adventurous.As well as having an obscenely huge portfolio he has boxes of gold nuggets stashed away,so he can afford to take a punt for a bit of fun.

100g of gold only!

I invested in ADA the other day... or Cardano... currently up 5.38%. I don't pretend to understand it... but, back to Shiba Inu coins, I also ordered myself a "HODL SHIB" t-shirt from TeePublic... costing £18.32, so there's some of my profit gone.

Take a look at https://cake.monster/ and the video you find there - "what is cake monster?" - if you want to mess with your mind and possibly get in on the next big thing like Bitcoin. My brain doesn't get my head around it and the fact it looks like a game for 11 year olds makes me deeply suspicious... but, remember, Bitcoin was once $0, and in 2010 it was a paltry $0.0008... today it's $45,584.

ADA just tipped 6.75%. Don't ask me to explain what's going on. I cannot. It'll likely evaporate to nothing by the end of the day.

Just to follow-up on my investigations into Shiba Inu coins and the dream of some kind of passive income... today I found ShibaSwap, where you can BURY SHIB and, hopefully, be rewarded with small amounts of xSHIB, ETH and even BONE, on a weekly basis (I'll see what happens with the 110,000,000 I've buried). If I get enough BONE from that (and I think that's very unlikely for a long time) then I can use that BONE to DIG (or I can even BURY it to get tBONE)... or I can move over some more ETH to SWAP for some BONE (every time paying a hefty fee in gas!) and then DIG using that BONE. Once I get enough I believe I can WOOF my returns... and think about which beach I'm going to relax on.

All of this is 100% real, even though it doesn't sound like any of it is... https://woofpaper.org/SHIBAINU_Ecosystem_WOOF_Paper.pdf ...now I'm even more interested in selling-up all of these crappy houses and apartments.

To carry on with the canine metaphors,Shiba Inu dogs are a law unto themselves.They are strictly one for the experienced owner,if not trained carefully they can bite badly. I have only met one in the flesh,he had been from pillar to post bless him,and was a bad ass.In the right hands they are loving and loyal  companions.
I know how you feel, and I am far less of a people person than you are. That side has always seemed to be the the part  of it that you rather enjoyed.,sounds like that has turned sour?

Oh no, I'm just excited by something new and shiny (to me)... plus, while up a ladder doing some pointing, just before 21:00 the other night, I was musing to myself about how there has got to be a better way. However, this is just a side-hustle... I'm not going to sell a property to buy imaginary / logical / ephemerous / nebulous tokens that I will BURY and probably forget about. That said, I have chucked my salary this month into it... a few thousand Pounds seems so much less impressive than a few billion SHIB, some Cardano and some TRON / TRX.

I thought SHIB would interest you, being into your animals and all that.

I even went back the following day and splattered Thompson's Water Seal all over the wall... my Tenants think I go above-and-beyond. They even asked me if they could touch up the interior doors... ha, of course you can! What a sign they'll be staying. The lady of the house is even thinking of some accent wallpaper in alcoves. Again, fill your boots! Aren't they great?

Hi everyone,

Talking about bitcoin, remember that it can drop badly again and again and possibly stay at 10k, many people bought BTC at 60k and in few days it went down to 30k, shiba inu went down by 80% since all time high only 4 months ago. So imagine investing 10k in shiba inu 4 months ago you would only have 2k left.
It would never happen with property or at least the chance is a lot less possible.
I believe in digital assets and investing myself BUT selling property to exchange it to crypto is very risky, invest as much as you are ready to lose.
Remember there is more than 11 thousand crypto coins!  It is almost gambling but yeah I am in it.

Any one wants to try a new project with currently no value coin but free mining on the mobile? Risk free.

Property doesn't go down? Property doesn't crash? Don't you remember 2008? I do.

What's your favourite crypto.? Mine is possibly Elrond. That said, I do like Cake... something that seems useless, but I bake Cake, stake Cake, pool Cake, receive Cake, swap Cake. Some people are burning Cake. At $25 per Cake you know they've just got to be good.

:) truth but I think it was in times when deposit wasn't required for mortgage and property crash happens not as often as crypto dumping.
Only my thoughts :)
I am here as I am new to properties (only one BTL for 6 years and now looking for second, god what to choose? :) a flat for airbnb or just standard long time letting ?)

My favourite crypto?
1. Crypto.com, seems solid platform, I like a card with 2% cashback and free Spotify,
2. GT gate coin, low supply and nice exchange with many coins and start ups, 
3. Polkastarter POLS

I also have some well known ones from first 20.
