How to find Landlords for your Letting Agency
A question we are frequently asked is "Do you show me how to find landlords?"
Our answer is "Of course!' It's an important question because without landlord clients you simply don't have a business. For this reason we devote two full sections of our manual to the subject of finding landlords and marketing your services. In detail we lay out the various methods and techniques you will need to utilise in order to (1) find, (2) sign up and (3) retain landlord clients.
It's not rocket science, but it does involve thinking 'outside the box'. Work through the methods we explain, and depending on the time and effort you devote, you could launch and build a lucrative business in no time - which will provide both a valuable income, and an investment for potential sale later down the line if so desired.
We focus on low or zero cost techniques that are highly effective at marketing your business to gain maximum exposure for minimum cost, effort and time. You won't need to utilise such methods as advertising in the local press or on the internet - that's termed "passive advertising" and is quite wasteful, costly and inefficient. Once established you may wish to utilise some small local press ads in order to maintain local brand awareness, but this is not really a process we recommend in the early days.
In contrast we explain some resourceful and canny methods you can use to target potential landlord clients. For example you will learn how to discover landlords in your area who will soon have to find new tenants for their property, before they have contacted any agents at all. You could be the first and only agent they instruct!
Follow our proven techniques and we'll show you the path to a profitable business - and don't forget that support for new start-up agents is unlimited and provided by experts who built their own business from scratch, and have been in the lettings industry for many years.
Here's to your success!
