Staying COVID-19 secure in 2020
Introducing: Heidi Mobbs
Hi, my name is Heidi Mobbs. As your host of the Progressive Property Network in Humberside, I’d like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to join our fantastic monthly events.
I have spent the last 12 years working within the Criminal Justice System specialising in working on and managing resettlement contracts in prisons. Aiming to support and find prison leavers accommodation, I worked my way up the ladder becoming a strategic leader within a well-known national housing charity. My main priority, fighting against the system to get housing for vulnerable groups, has given me a great insight to dealing with systemic challenges within the housing system and has fuelled my passion to plug gaps within the sector. My aim is to create an option of a home for everyone, starting with those within the criminal justice system and vulnerable adults, solving issues not many people want to tackle.
I began my property journey by living in a student HMO, taking on the tenancy and renting out the other bedrooms - I hadn’t realised I had done the famous R2R strategy all those years ago! This strategy gave me the deposit I needed to buy my first residential flip which I later turned into a BTL. I then released the equity to buy a family home and so my property dreams began, or so I thought. As with most people, I became frustrated with how slow of a journey this was going to be trying to save for a deposit. Whilst discussing frustrations with a friend, I was introduced to the progressive community and came across the amazing No Money Down course. My journey accelerated from there. One week after completing NMD with Kevin McDonnell, I had the confidence to negotiate and get offered 28 HMOs to lease from a portfolio landlord!
My personal current property focus is R2HMOs, building a portfolio of properties tailored towards an area’s housing demand.
I have 3 property “why’s”:
• As a mum of 2 young girls, I want to choose how I spend my time having the financial freedom to do so.
• Create good quality homes for vulnerable groups.
• Bring together like-minded people to create more property opportunities and solve more property problems!
