In the summer of 2014, we started a letting agency called Yellow Lettings. Today, we’re sharing the lessons we’ve learnt from the process so far.
In this wide-ranging discussion we talk about what’s happened, what we’ve learnt about property as a result, and the general business lessons that are applicable to property investment too.
Discussion points include:
- The painful experiences we had in the early days
- The difficult decision we made to reboot the business
- What influences how quickly a property gets let
- The most difficult aspects of property management…and some myths about tenants
- Why having great people in your business isn’t enough
- What we should have done differently from the start
