    The hardest part of building a buy to let portfolio is buying that first property and securing a tenant. Once cash begins to flow, your equity begins to grow and hopefully there is capital appreciation, it can be easier and quicker to build your portfolio. However, how quickly did it take you to pay off your first property and then build the rest of your portfolio?

    Never paid off as of yet. First one I lived in, bought something else and rented it out.
    I imagine the percentage of landlords with a paid-off property is actually rather low.
  3. There are two types of landlord in my book - and neither strategy is wrong. Those who are looking to agressively build up their portfolio and those who are ultra cautious and only want to take on one property and a time.
