Rental Yields Explained – Listen to the audio

Our friends Rob Bence and Rox Dix from the Property Podcast have produced an excellent audio programme which explains various options to calculate rental yields. Rental Yields Explained

They have also added a very cool, funky intro to their Podcast so do check it out, I even get a mention 🙂 iAmAlandlord is my Twitter handle by the way – which makes no sense to this blog unless you listen to the audio.

You don’t need any special software or devices to listen to the Podcast, all you need is speakers to be connected to your PC and turned on and to click on the play button on the bar below.

If you are not good with maths or calculators you can apply everything you will learn from the audio very simply by using our Landlords Calculator below.

Enjoy!

Thanks Mark for your continued support of The Property Podcast!

If anyone has any suggestions of a show topic they would like us to cover we would be keen to hear.

Also I have started a new podcast called Property News Radio which I'm sure many people will also find useful http://rmpproperty.com/category/podcast/

Thanks for the mention Mark! Glad you're a fan of the new intro too...it was a sad day when we handed the American guy his P45, but it was the right thing to do.

Thanks for your comment guys.

I've been doing some research and the popular Q&A topic is regarding fees charged by letting agents. sadly, the people raising the questions have usually been ripped off at that point.

How about recording an episode on how to avoid rip-off letting agents?

To break it down a bit, the topics are:-

1) renewal fees - the importance of carefully reading the contract BEFORE it's signed

2) ensuring that if your letting agent is collecting rents paid or tenants deposits that your agent has Client Money Protection

3) Mystery shopping you agent to make sure they are not ripping off tenants - the reason being this results in high tenant turnover, increased redecoration costs, longer void periods and general lack of goodwill.

There is a list of Rip-Off Tip-Off's as long as your arm when it comes to the scams which some letting agents can pull off. Maybe other readers of this thread will want to list a few they've come across, on a NO NAMES basis of course.
