Free lettings advice seminar for small and independent agents

ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support is running a free seminar on Monday 20th February tailored especially for business owners, directors and decision makers at small estate/letting agents and independent property companies.

The seminar will take place between 14.00 to 16.30 at the Holiday Inn London Gatwick Airport, Povey Cross Road, Horley, Surrey, RH6 0BA. Attendees will listen to property industry expert Michael Day, of Integra Property Services, talk about ‘business planning for lettings success’ and there will be a second presentation by traceWise on money laundering regulations and the 4th directive – explaining an imminent change to the law that will be applicable to all agents. Although the seminar is free, the number of places is limited, so book today by calling 07596 115959.

ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support is organising the seminar to help property professionals plan for forthcoming changes in the buy-to-let sector and to help them maximise revenue streams in lettings at a time when income may be compromised.

“Lettings is a growth area ready to be exploited – especially in a faltering sales market – but those who could benefit most from smart lettings advice are often overlooked,” comments ARPM’s Managing Director Simon Duce. “Our seminar is designed to help small, independent letting agents grow their business so they can take advantage of new opportunities and guide sales-only agents who’d like to move into lettings. Armed with the right information and support framework, any agent can offer a full lettings and property management service. Those attending the seminar will be surprised at how easy it can be, and they will leave the seminar equipped with confidence and the right information to take advantage of lettings in 2017.”

The potential for revenue in lettings is astonishing and the figures speak for themselves:-

• There are around 5 million properties let and managed across the UK – that’s around 20% of households.
• By 2025, there will be a 1.8 million shortfall in rental properties*, coaxing more people into buy-to-let (*RICS)
• If there are 10,000 homes in your catchment, that means around 2,000 will be in the private rental sector. If the average rent is £1,200 per month, then over £3 million in fees is available every year.

“We want to advise and educate as many small lettings agents, independents and sales-only agencies as possible without any expense to them. Not everyone in property has the advantage of a corporate framework or network of branches to lean on but there is support and partnership available so every agent can operate successfully in lettings. ARPM’s seminar is a great starting-point for property professionals wondering how they can make lettings part of their future business. On the day there’ll be plenty of time to ask our experts questions, as well as share ideas with like minded people in a supportive environment,” concludes Simon.

A second free seminar is also being hosted by ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support on Tuesday 14th March in Guildford. Call 07596 115959 to book yourself – or other decision makers – on the March seminar.
