How We Can Still Make A Profit From Property

Sarah BeenySarah Beeny has spent the last 8 years advising amateur property developers how to make the most of their property investments on her hit TV show Property Ladder. Not all of these budding developers took Sarah’s advice, but because of the rising property market they appeared to have got away with making bad decisions.

In her new show, Property Snakes and Ladders Sarah now revisits some of the investors that she met on Property Ladder to see how they are getting on now that the property market has taken a turn for the worse.

Sarah also offers advice to prospective developers who are brave enough to invest amidst the current slump in the property market, showing them that it is still possible to make money from property during the downturn.

Episode One: The Bank of Mum and Dad

In Episode 1 of Property Snakes and Ladders, shown on Channel 4 on June 9th 2009, Sarah catches up with Rick Dickinson and Natasha Burr, who both funded their forays into the property market back in 2007 with loans from their generous parents.

Rick used his investment to renovate an enormous four-bedroom Victorian terrace in Battersea, while Natasha persuaded her mother Debbie to finance an ambitious plan to convert a run-down bungalow into a luxurious family home.

Sarah soon realises that both property apprentices have big problems with their plans. And as the housing market slump kicks in it quickly becomes a race to try and make profit from what could potentially be huge losses.
