Like many property people I started out part time in between my Corporate career. Evenings and weekends became the times where I would build my property portfolio and was the beginning of what is now Grace Charles Property (GCP).
Making things stream lined and easier for myself meant I could do more with little time. Everything from where I ordered supplies to how I would contact agents and view houses.
My phone became my office, using it for anything and everything I could.
I remember having a template in my notes, which I would copy and paste each time I wanted to stack a new deal. I would then flip between this and the calculator, madly inputting the numbers. Then I’d flicked over to my google app, search the SDLT calculator to double check my workings.
I then had a separate app to calculate the mortgage payments per month. I’d have the numbers to confidently make my offer, but the time it took used to frustrate me, because cash was tight it was absolutely essential that I could recycle cash out.
Working out the refinance, what cash it would release, adding mortgage fees into the loans and calculating the post refinance mortgage payments was still a long process. I had a great excel spread sheet ‘deal calculator’ which when we started to employee people made my life easier, but I always missed not having a simple way to work things out on phone straight away.
So over a year in the making this week we launch the GCP app
I’ve built in a BTL ROI & post refinance ROI calculator along with:
I love to say I’ve been very noble and created this for the greater good, but it’s really everything I needed and wanted in a property investor app. So for that very reason that it’s been created to not only help everyone else, but also me and the team at GCP.
We will be launching it absolutely FREE.
As Property118 has always given me so much insight along with its members who regularly contribute, I wanted to give you all the first chance to download it and have a play.
Feed back and suggestions would be welcomed in comments below.
This app will continue to evolve and develop as more people use it and feedback, which in turn helps us all to have a better tool on our phone.
