A bit about JIM
“When I see an opportunity that I know I can make it work, I take it!”
Introducing Jim Haliburton, BBC featured Speaker, Author, Entrepreneur, Multi-Millionaire Property Investor and Mentor.
Jim’s remarkable rise from the bottom started out in a Scottish children’s home. “I know what it’s like to be homeless” he says indifferently. “It’s probably one reason I don’t live a flash life style, but I always re-invest”.
Jim is based in Darlaston, a small town on the outskirts of Sandwell. “I started investing around here in the 90s. I find it important to have all my properties close together. It became more significant as my portfolio grew. I have a team of around 35”.
Jim’s portfolio now holds a massive 180 properties and mainly consists of HMO style multi-lets. Laughed at by his colleagues, Jim took his first big risk and purchased his initial property for £35,000 in 1991 using credit cards. Continuing to build his portfolio, his next 10 properties were also purchased on credit cards. “I had no idea how big my portfolio would become. The demand was there so I provided the supply. I have no interest in a flash lifestyle, I was brought up in Scotland with a Presbyterian background. It stopped me from squandering money, buying flash jewellery and living a life of luxury holidays”.
As an avid speaker within the property circuit the HMO Daddy is known for his straight forward and honest approach. “I like to say it how it is. In today’s world people are so caught up in how other people perceive them they forget the importance of being themselves”.
“If I was to give advice to an aspiring property investor I would suggest that understanding reciprocity and resourcefulness is key. When you set out to help other people, people want to help you back. It’s that simple.
We also have a tendency to overthink things. I know it isn’t easy, especially when you are new to the game but what we think will happen is usually far different from what does happen. If you want something enough, you can always make it materialise”.
“Take the risk, stay calm and tackle one problem at a time. It gets easier.”
