When enterprising husband and wife team, Julie and Alec Hanson, started justdoproperty.co.uk back in 2009 who could have guessed the success they would achieve. They already had the knowledge from more than 20 years in the property investment industry and knew the questions that other property investors were asking. Determined that justdoproperty.co.uk was not going to be “just another property portal” they began building a legacy; a fully functional, multi-platform property education website.
Looking back to their early days in Manchester, a booming area for property investment, Julie and Alec have ridden the peaks and troughs of the sector. Conscious there were few “one-stop advice shops” back in 2009 they began building their own. Teaching the theory of property investment is relatively straightforward, crunching the numbers and calculating the margins, teaching the practice is a whole different challenge. Taking a profit is the easy part, knowing when to cut your losses and re-evaluate your investments is the hard part!
Membership is still free!
One of the keys to the success of justdoproperty.co.uk is the fact that from day one there have been no membership fees - but this is no token gesture. Access to newsletters and a range of vital downloads, including a property legal checklist, means you won’t have to venture far for the answers. As more and more sites switch to paid membership, Julie and Alec have remained true to their original concept with free membership an integral part of the site’s success. Thankfully, this will not be changing. The great news is that they will soon be launching their premium membership package which give subscribers access to exclusive content.
Redesign, expand and relaunch
The decision to relaunch a new look and expanded justdoproperty.co.uk was taken some time ago. With meticulous attention to detail, Julie and Alec have managed to retain the strong community spirit within justdoproperty.co.uk, prevalent from day one. Don’t worry though, all the old services and features will still be there but enhanced and expanded together with the new additions. The new site will include: -
