A Wealthy Life

Feb 29, 2024

An unexpected offer on a property might not be the usual start to a real estate empire, but for Jay Rooney, it was just that—a twist of fate that propelled him into the world of property investment. 


In this episode Jay unravels the complexities and triumphs of building a portfolio from the ground up. His transition to leveraging a limited company structure and his adept response to taxation changes offer listeners a masterclass in adaptability and strategic planning.


We discuss the property market trends that landlords and investors must navigate. From stringent licensing requirements to the aftermath of COVID-19, the conversation delves into the various factors that have led to significant rent increases across regions like Scotland and Northern Ireland.


We explore the pivotal decision points for investors, such as when to consider establishing a limited company for property management.


We also discuss the critical importance of a focused investment strategy, informed by numbers rather than mere location, and reflect on past missteps and their role in honing our approach to building sustainable property portfolios.
