Lessons learnt from running a letting agent

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

London is the most overvalued city in the world, according to a report by UBS.
