    Family homes are a "smart" investment

    Welcome to another instalment of our "Smart Landlord" 2019 campaign, where we have been championing the concept of the "Smart Landlord" as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations.

    One of the traits of a Smart landlord is that they leverage the knowledge, contacts, and experience of property professionals, such as a reputable letting agent, tax advisor, and mortgage broker.

    All of these trusted suppliers can be found amongst the sponsors and commercial partners of Property Tribes and are linked to above.

    When it comes to local knowledge, experienced lettings agents know every street in their area and are a mine of useful information about tenant demand, best property type to invest in, rental comparables etc.

    Today we hear from ARLA letting agent, Bill Rockett, of Rockett Rentals in Stoke on Trent.  Bill has over 15 years experience in the lettings industry, and, when it comes to investment, is a big advocate of the terraced house in a good street where a family will be attracted to putting down roots:
