Book Description

27 Nov 2009 How to Books: Small Business Start-Ups
The letting industry is booming. With most properties too expensive for people to get on the housing ladder, a dearth of lending instruments, the need for a flexible and transient workforce, high divorce rates, and an increase in immigrants coming to the UK, more and more people are looking for rental accommodation. The requirement for professional letting and managing agents is high. Providing you have some business acumen and determination, you can run a successful lettings business without any specific prior knowledge. This book will provide much of the information you will need, and shows you how and where to get additional information, training and resources. The book provides a complete guide to starting and running your own residential letting agency even if you have no previous knowledge of the industry. It will also provide valuable information for anyone buying into a lettings franchise, or for people already working in the industry.

More About the Author

I initially started my working life as an Engineer within several firms in the UK and abroad but for many years I had an itch to work for myself. Eventually the itch became too great and I investigated various options for self-employment. After a great deal of research, I eventually jumped in the deep end and started my own Real Estate lettings business.

My first book was therefore, focussed on setting up and running a letting agency. The idea for the book was developed due to the difficulty I had in finding relevant information on operating this type of business. The book, at the time was the only one covering the subject.

The business model for the letting agency was heavily biased to online marketing and, as I had a low budget, I designed my own company website. Therefore, much of the book is dedicated to marketing online.

Some great tips and suggestions but would have loved a little bit more details in areas (such as marketing, software, etc).
All in, a great resource if thinking of starting this type of business.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing stuff 22 Nov 2011
By Luigi
Format:Paperback
when you decide to run a start up soon you feel overwhelmed by materials to read..from the bank, a friend, videos on youtube on how to start a new business, etc. With this state of mind I got into this book, for something like a 5 minutes reading..I'm ending up going through every page, read, and try to reverse all the important topics in a project plan.
If you plan to run a letting agency, this is a must!!!
