You'd be forgiven for having bigger concerns in 2018 - namely that the respective leaders of the United States and North Korea don't blow us all up - but it could also be a big year for the lettings sector. We know that various legislative changes, from the Tenant Fees Bill to the introduction of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards, will test agencies throughout the country, but there is huge potential to turn them into opportunities as well.
2018 could be the year that small agencies establish themselves in a competitive space and large agencies begin to pull away form their competitors, as long as they ensure that they are ready and able to take advantage of situations they might find themselves in. While it's important to be in a position to capitalise, agencies should also ensure that they have a solid foundation for success in the way that they operate on a daily basis, which many fail to do (and then wonder why they're not having much success!).
Nobody knows for sure what 2018 will hold, but we've put together 10 tips for lettings success that should see you through the next twelve months. The tips are entirely free to download by clicking on the image at the bottom.
We're excited to see what the year has in store for the lettings space - here's to a great 2018!
