National Achievers Congress follow up seminar Property Investing

In my search of looking for opportunities to generate additional passive income, have I joined the National Achievers Congress's follow up seminar on Property Investing (Real Estate). The seminar was held the weekend of the 26th of July in the Novotel Hotel in Amsterdam.

The organizer:

The seminar was organized by Tigrent Learning UK. Tigrent Learning provides training that uses an integrated approach to provide customers with the knowledge, skill, tools and techniques they can apply to create wealth. During the weekend we only make acknowledge to the fundamentals of property investing. The follow up course of Tigrent Learning UK is called "Rich Dad Learn to Be Rich"  and is focused on property investing.  The course content is presented through a combination of live sessions, field training, property sourcing, mentoring and independent study.  It is based on the teachings and philosophies of Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. As presenter of the fundamentals of the course during the weekend in Amsterdam, Tigrent Learning UK has invited Kevin Green.

Kevin Green:
Kevin Green is a self-made multi-millionaire, social entrepreneur and one of the UK’s largest residential property landlords and a multi-business owner. He has a wealth of experience in the property investment world and heads a number of successful companies and other non  property related businesses.

Kevin continues to thrive in business and chooses to give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs by sharing his knowledge and wisdom. Kevin’s passion is to educate, motivate and inspire others and his passion and enthusiasm is quite infectious. His down to earth approach is often referred to by those who know him as “exactly what it says on the tin”. He is an international trainer and property investor with a wealth of knowledge who started off with a dream which, he made into a reality.

The weekend:
During the intro at the National Achievers Congress they have given us the impression that the course would not only based on the situation in the UK, but would be made tailor made for the Dutch situation. During the weekend we have received the fundamentals of teaching of the UK property market. Kevin Green was teaching the fundamentals of investment strategies currently implemented throughout the UK such as Social Housing, Buy-To-Let, Lease Options and Land Development. He tried to convince us that the UK market is the most profitable one currently, to prefer above the Dutch property market.

As a foreigner you can easily join investing within the UK market via the Tigrent Organization. But there is Dutch saying “the eye of the master makes the horse fat”, which means that you have to hold a close eye on your investments from the choice of selected houses till the management of it. If you are not capable of doing so, because you live abroad and have to give this whole process in the hands of a third party, the rentability will drop dramatically. And the danger is that a lucrative investment in the beginning can easily turn in a losing situation. Although most of the fundamentals are uniform for all  international property markets, during that weekend we were mostly teached on the specifics of the UK market, which was a bit disappointed. Would I recommend the course for a foreigner?  Only if you have a strong preference to invest in property in the UK and you are willing to let a third party manage your investments fee based. And may the investment turn into a losing situation,  the third party will not take part in the lost. This is not how I want to invest! I want to be in control so I can make “the horse fat”.
