    HMO landlords Gertie Owen and Paul Watson



    Welcome to the next instalment of our "Smart Landlord" 2019 campaign, which we've launched to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of Property Tribes.

    You've heard of smart phones, smart highways, smart meters ... well, this month Property Tribes champions the concept of the "smart landlord" as we believe that is the profile of the landlord who will survive the current challenging market conditions and taxation and regulatory landscape.

    Smart things are adaptive to change, problem solving and always seeking out efficiencies to operate more smoothly and at a higher level, and that is how the smart landlord approaches their business.

    Here are the top 10 traits of a smart landlord which we will be bringing to the fore throughout this campaign:

    >  Adapts to change and actively seeks out the best intel to help them adjust to change.

    >  Treats their property portfolio as a business.

    >  Operates in "prevention" mode rather than "cure" mode to mitigate risk.

    >  When problems do arise, actively seeks to resolve them immediately, rather than allowing them to escalate (which causes additional stress and expense).

    >  Regularly reviews and audits their business/portfolio to ensure they are operating efficiently and to maximum performance.

    >  Seeks out the most reputable and trusted products and services to help them move forwards.

    >  Seeks out the most trusted and reputable professionals to work with.

    >  Is fully networked in the industry and makes a point of networking with other landlords and property professionals at both on-line and at off-line events.

    >  Makes it their business to be an expert at due diligence and research.

    >  Wants to constantly learn and grow and become a smarter landlord by taking sustained and intelligent action on a daily basis.

    Today, we hear from seasoned HMO landlords Gertie Owen and Paul Watson, who are also franchise partners with Platinum Property Partners:


    Some takeaways from the video:

    >  Treat your property portfolio like a business.

    >  Take advantage of new technologies to help you work smarter - such as heating controls and tenant management software.

    >  Keep up with regulation and legislation.

    >  Always go the extra mile and let your tenants know that they are valued customers.

    >  Immerse yourself in the sector to aid continual learning and growth.  Join networks which can support your learning and education.

    >  Join a landlord association.
