As well as your own investment projects, deal sourcing and packaging for other investors can be a potentially profitable sideline. It can generate extra profits from projects you do not have the time or resources to progress yourself.
Deal sourcing and packaging can involve considerable work and time. You will need to have good market knowledge, be able to find properties, and analyse potential and key financials. You will also need to produce reports showing clients what they are investing in, how much money they will need, what the project will involve and what return they can expect.
While you can undertake all these tasks manually PaTMa provides a range of invaluable tools to make deal sourcing and packaging easier, quicker as well as much more successful.
Tools to give you expert market knowledge
An expert knowledge of the market allows you to suggest deals with confidence, and build your reputation as a deal sourcer and packager. PaTMa makes it easy to become a market expert whether in your local area or any other.
PaTMa Property Prospector can provide you with a wide range of information on any given area. It can provide local price and rent comparables, allowing you to spot the best opportunities. It can tell you about local demographics, transport links, schools, crime rates, health services and local planning applications. If you’re sourcing and packaging buy to lets it provides information on landlord licensing and HMO licensing regimes in that area.
PaTMa’s weekly market emails issued each Monday provide listing stats with invaluable data including prices, price changes and rentals for any postcode area right up to the day before.
