Should I self-manage or use an agent? PLUS: What can I do if my flat is slow to let?

This week we’ve got one lucky listener Lisa, who’s having both of her property investment related questions answered.

First of all, Lisa wants to know if she should manage her new buy to let property herself. Or, should she be working with a lettings agent?

She already has one property in the south that’s fully managed by a lettings agent. Now she’s wanting to know if she should stick with that for her second investment property or just give it a go herself.

Whilst Lisa’s second property is in Manchester and she lives locally, Rob B doesn’t feel that she should self-manage just because she lives nearby. It’s completely Lisa’s decision but Rob’s happy to chip in with his reasoning from a personal perspective.

Secondly, Lisa is looking at buying another flat this year and has her eye on Manchester and Liverpool. However, she’s noticed a lot of properties on the market waiting to be rented out.

So Lisa wants to know if The Robs have any advice on what she should prepare herself for, and what she can do to rent out her property quickly.

Can Rob D provide some reassurance and a firm reason where there are so many properties on the market in two large (and very popular) city centres?

Of course he can.
