My wife and I run a property development business blog, we call it JC Holdings. The blog is at jcholdings.properties. We have written for 2 years (as at Apr 2019) on the experiences of building a property empire, projects looked at, deals assessed and dropped, all sorts of things that you might need to know about the property game as a beginner, and also all the reports on our track record as a developer as we report to our investors.
