Suggesting that people can start investing in property without having their own money to do it is perhaps one of the more surprising claims of a businessman and mentor.

But, since his own deals have netted him millions of pounds, many people believe that Samuel Leeds can easily prove his point.

The property millionaire was only 17-years-old when he bought his first house and, in the 15 years since then, he's gone on to build up an enviable portfolio that includes factories, hotels and even a castle.

First-hand experience

Success didn’t come overnight for the West Midlands-born businessman but he studied hard after leaving school and honed his skills by talking to every property professional he could find.

He also identified deals for people and even managed accommodation free of charge at first to gain vital hands-on experience.

Increasingly recognised as an expert in the field, Samuel says his mission now is to teach as many people as possible to implement his methods and become financially free.

In-depth training

As part of that aim, he runs a Property Investors Academy offering advanced training to hopeful entrepreneurs. His 12-month programme is complemented by short, intensive courses in specialist areas such as deal-selling, joint ventures, lease options and a whole lot more.

While the training obviously comes at a price, Samuel says he's had numerous students who have soon recouped their tuition fees and turned property investing into a successful new career.

“Property is the second best investment you can make,” he says. “The best investment is in yourself.”

Make up your own mind

But Samuel is also happy to demonstrate that you don't need to be well off to take a first step towards learning. He regularly delivers one-day crash courses to give people a flavour of his training and business approach for the very modest fee of just £1.

And he says these taster sessions are often a starting point for people to sign up to learn more. On the other hand, attendees might decide it's not the path for them but they don’t have to spend large sums of money to find that out.

Either way, they can expect the courses to cover a host of interesting topics on the day. The events usually start with registration from 9 in the morning and have a scheduled finishing time of 6pm - but always come with a warning that they might overrun.

Success stories

Among Samuel’s previous students turned property investors who attended a crash course is a former physiotherapist who was badly affected by a relationship break-up and gave up his business at the time.

The Leeds man says he was plagued with severe anxiety and credits the academy with helping to turn his life around and give him a fulfilling new direction to follow. It’s just one of numerous positive stories that Samuel says he’s heard from trainees and he takes satisfaction in each one.

His crash courses cover different elements of the housing and commercial sector and he’ll soon be hosting one based on profiting from property lets as part of a short UK tour.

Houses in multiple occupation

The rent-to-rent strategy that he uses essentially involves renting accommodation from a landlord and letting it at a higher rate, often to multiple tenants on a room by room basis.

People living in HMOs (houses in multiple occupation) could be anything from temporary staff and contractors to students or even holidaymakers.

Among other things, the event promises to show people how to profit from companies such as Airbnb and Booking.com, the principles of HMOs and legislation and how to choose what’s described as a ‘goldmine area’ for investment.

Practical approach

They’ll also have access to live deals on the day as part of a practical demonstration of applying investment methods.

“Whether you are a brand newbie or an experienced property tycoon you will massively benefit from attending the crash course,” adds Samuel.
