Maintain your lifestyle after retiring from sport

There’s a reason many folk choose property investment. It’s one of the most reliable ways of creating long-term wealth, that grows year on year. Starting early is the key and many property athletes will start building their retirement plan, whilst still playing sport.


Here are our top property investing tips, inspired by sport, that can guide you towards a successful return on investment.

1. Set a Goal

What is your why? Why do you want 

to get into property investing?

• Protect your family’s future

• Continue to provide a private 

education for your children

• Continue to have incredible holidays whenever you want

• Help your kids get on the property ladder in the future

• Put yourselves in a strong financial position for retirement


 2. Strategy

What kind of property do you want to invest in? Flips? HMOs? Coliving? New builds? Supported Living? There are so many different property strategies and it’s important to consider diversifying your investments into a few different projects.

Due diligence is essential and not everyone has time to do the research. How do you know it’s the right investment area? The right strategy or even the right time to invest? That’s where working with a property development company plays into the favour of busy sporting athletes. Professional, experienced property developers have done the research, identified the right opportunities, created time-proof strategies and are successful project upon project.

Our favourite investment strategies are in coliving developments, buy to lets and new builds to sell. There are huge opportunities in these markets, with big money to be made and any potential risk mitigated due to a diversification of funds.


3. The Right Team

Get involved with a property development company that fits your personal values. Surround yourself with a good team. Look for a great portfolio and a proven track record.

Choose to work with a company that surround themselves with a good team including:

• Finance Brokers

• Solicitors

• Accountants

• Financial Planners

• Property Managers

• Quantity Surveyors

• Town Planners

• Building Inspectors

• Architects & Interior Designers

• Sustainability Professionals 


Fantastic Investment Opportunities

Following the successful growth of over 100 rental units in 4 years, our aim is to expand the existing portfolio at Scott Baker Properties, through the acquisition and development of 750 units in the SE of England (rooms or flats) over 5 years to 2025, worth £73 million. That’s a lot of return on investment to be made.

The prime focus is on coliving developments and our secondary focus is on developing flats.
