Bristol Property Investor Network (PIN) 

13 September 2017 - Holiday Inn, Filton Road, Bristol

Hosted by Nick Josling
The Bristol PIN host - Nick Josling, welcomed EIG's David Sandeman to present to the group on 'How to buy at Auction'. It was a very lively group with over 80 attendees in the room. David went on to share how to avoid the classic mistakes which can save you a fortune when buying at auction.

One of the attendees contacted David afterwards to say:

Hi David,

Thanks so much for your presentation at Bristol PIN last night - informative, entertaining and wonderfully politically incorrect in today's stifled and ridiculously up tight world.

Thank you so much.
With Best Regards,


'How to buy at auction, and why now is a good time to do so!'

David's presentation covered how to buy at auction, and why now is a good time to do so. As this is a great strategy to find some bargain priced property but you have to know what you are doing. Many amateurs end up paying too much at auctions or even worse buying property that is in an auction because no one else wants it.

David was there to answer questions and was able to dispell many of the myths surrounding auctions and many of the attendees took advantage of the opportunity for a free trial of the EIG service. 

Thanks to David Sandeman (buying at auction) and Anthony Cherry (less HMO hassle) for great talks last night at a full Bristol pin house, and for a great crowd.......

Hello, and a warm welcome to the Bristol Property Investors Network.

My name is Nick Josling, and I am the host of the monthly meetings held at the Holiday Inn, Filton Road, Bristol, on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. I have been investing in property for the last 9 years, and built up a substantial personal portfolio. I now focus on helping other investors buy in Bristol, and on managing properties for Landlords on a room by room basis. .

The monthly pin meetings offer a fantastic environment for investors to share knowledge and experience, and many successful business relationships have been formed at these meetings. It is a place for those just starting out as well as for those more experienced, to meet with like minded people in an educational environment. Every month you can meet experienced property experts, including solicitors, estate agents, letting agents, mortgage brokers and building tradesmen, all of whom can help you achieve your property goals. Each month we have two different speakers, explaining how they have achieved success in property and how they can help you. They are chosen for their knowledge and expertise in their particular field, and for their generosity in wanting others to similarly succeed.

It would be great to see you at the next Bristol pin meeting, so come along and meet the team and other local property investors. We are looking forward to welcoming you.
