Iain Large & Gordon Long met at work aged 16, hitting it off they bought their first house at 21, within 3 years had acquired two HMO’s with a combined 12 letting rooms. Selling their properties just in time to escape the 2007 recession they took time out to go their separate ways continuing to rent rooms in their own homes.
In 2013 Iain & Gordon rejoined forces investing in a 9-bed HMO and going on to secure a string of additional single let Below Market Value properties which form the base of their portfolio today. In 2016 we partnered with Graham Guthrie to launch Connection Construction Limited to start building our own properties to sell and let.
In the last two years, Connection Construction has built six houses, two for a developer client, two for sale and two to keep as part of the buy to let portfolio.
Going forward Connection Property continues to grow, we’re now working with investment partners both to fund our own projects for a guaranteed return and Portfolio Building partnerships for a select few, where we’ll source below market property, carry out the renovation and refinance, returning all or most of the funds invested and splitting all rent, capital appreciation and end sale profits 50/50 with the investor one 100% of the original investment has been returned. For more information visit our Portfolio Building Page.
We’re also looking for Development Partnerships, if you have land to develop and want the maximum possible rather than selling out to a developer we’ll partner with you, manage the whole process, the design, the planning, the financing, the build and the sales in return for a percentage of the profit.
