Can I make a profit ?
With one full time and later one part time staff member, our first
shop serviced a voting register population of approximately 60,000.
During it's first 2 years it was managing 90 properties + 10
(repeating) finders fees (and some 4th generation re-lets).
Due to house moves within the existing portfolio and new take-ons
we wrote 115 leases in our second year. Given a larger servicable
population or higher area rental values, business would develop
at a faster pace in larger towns or cities.
Income therefore would be much higher than that of our first outlet
which was earning in excess of £70,000 in their 3rd year.

be used to calculate a guarantee of income.However, please note,

What if there are already residential letting agencies
in my selected area?
Excellent, this means that there is a good supply of property to let and
room for not just another company, but a company with a higher profile
and a fresh approach.
After 2 years of trading, our first shop managed twice as many properties
as it's closest rival. There were 10 other agencies out of which two have
closed and a third moved area since we opened.
We currently enjoy a 33% share of the market place due to our high profile
identity and expertise.
What should I research ?
What is the serviceable population in the area in which you would wish
to develop business and what is the average calendar monthly rent for
a 2 - 3 bedroomed house in that area?
