    Re: Letting Agency Start Up - Advice Please!

    I am also in the planning of setting up my own letting agency business as a second business to my full time company in conveying. So that it gives me some flexibility in the market place. I have been looking at the manuals at Southcourt and Letting4success which I like however I think the software they supply are not up to scratch. So I was thinking of buying one of their manuals and buying the software off of some one else. So far I have found propertywebdesignpro.co.uk and lettingandestateagencywebsites.co.uk which I like the look of and are in my price range. Is this a good way of going round it, any advice would be great.

    Re: Letting Agency Start Up - Advice Please!

    Hi all, brand spanking new to this forum, but hope to be very active in the coming months. I am very interested in finding out how the start up's have got on and how they started off.

    My father in law has started up and I will be involved in the agency, how did the new co's initially get their landlords? Was it all through networking?

    We are all geared to go, just need to get our first few properties on board now, any advice from those that have been there and done that would be gratefully received.

    Ross

    I have seen numerous home study courses advertised on how to become a letting agent - Southcourt, Letting4success and Letting Vision etc. Has anyone actually bought any of these courses, if so, which can you recommend and do they actually do what they say on the tin....as in give you enough information to be able to set up a letting agency? Advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Not the best business to get into imo lots of liabilities.
    You will need some finance too for offices and advertising.

    People buy off people. Its the same the wold over. If you think you have a great product and the business plan stacks up go for it. Dont sit here a year from now thinking that 'it could have been me' this is not a dress rehearsal.

    Re: Letting Agency Start Up - Advice Please!

    Hi all,
    I am actually in the process of starting a letting agency myself. It has to be one of the major growth industries at present. People have to live somewhere and if they can't buy they have to rent. I intend to run it part time from home intially and see how it goes, and build from there. I was mainly encouraged by my cousin who started his own letting agency business last year in a different town to me. He's doing really well and kept nagging me to do the same.
    He set up using a low cost start-up package called Lettings Opportunity from a company called Southcourt Property, and on his recommendation I have done the same. They specialise in providing training packages for anyone wanting to become a letting agent, and have been around for years, so apart from my cousin it was a pretty safe bet anyway. They provided a training manual, all the forms and documents, telephone support, and a really nice website that I am already getting compliments on. After working for other people all my life, I am really looking forward to being my own boss and I'm very confident of making a success of it. To anyone else thinking of starting a letting agency I say go for it!
    Dave.
