There are literally thousands of websites offering landlord resources but in this article I’m going to focus on the landlord resources which you can access and use without having to spend any money.
Rightmove has to be the leading landlord resource doesn’t it? They have dominated the UK online market for letting and sales for as long as I can remember. They’ve even seen off the likes of Google. The section of Rightmove I like best though isn’t just their home page. Look across their navigation bar and you will see a tab for sold prices. If I’m buying or selling this is an incredibly useful piece of information.
Property Tribes is, without a doubt, my favourite property forum. It’s full of people who share for the sake of sharing and learn as a result of doing so. I love the features they have built into this landlords resource too, such as being able to customise the information you receive and mute out people whose opinions are of no interest (not that I’ve muted anybody of course, yet! LOL).
How can anybody not love Twitter if they can be bothered to understand how it works? It is the best way to contact people you may never ordinarily be able to reach. It’s not about broadcasting information such as what you had for breakfast as most people think, it’s about tuning into who and what you want to know about. Strike the right balance between broadcasting and engaging and Twitter is a little goldmine. Two years ago I’d have said I can’t see the point!
This article is far from finished, that’s where I need your help. Please tell me what your favourite online Landlord resources are by leaving a comment below. You will see if I agree if it pops up in my list next time I re-publish this article.
