How to start a letting agency or estate agency from home in your 50s

One thing is certain - as a letting agent, you are in control!

Have you retired with a wealth of experience? Are you bored with the routine of golf, long resting holidays or Netflix? Have you ever thought of a pleasant yet inspiring activity that does not involve stress or very hard work? Are you interested in a low-cost start-up business with minimal capital investment plus one that plays a key role in your local community?

When it comes to setting up your own business, age and experience might prove ten times more valuable than youthful energy. In the UK, self-employment is becoming a more popular option and some very successful start-ups can be set up by retirees, in the comfort of your their own home, growing their business at their own pace.

Over 50’s increasingly opt for self-employment, a trend that has been reported by main-stream media. This should not come as a surprise due to longer life expectancy as well as more flexibility around pension savings. But what are retirees doing? Well, for some is about survival: supplementing retirement funds with additional income to make ends meet. For others, they simply wish to maintain an active lifestyle or take advantage of an opportunity to build something they never had a chance to do during their “working years”.

The average over 50 will count with a wealth of invaluable skills gained over a working lifetime. Usually they continue in their profession or industry on a self-employed or consultancy basis. Others grasp this opportunity to create something new or to earn more money.
