A new report has revealed that women now account for two in five landlords and use property to top up their monthly income.
Data analysis of tens of thousands of landlords revealed than 40% of landlords are women. By comparison, only 17% of SME owners are women, demonstrating how property is moving towards equality at a faster pace than other industries.Some highlights from the report.DOWNLOAD THE FULL REPORT Last year, Property Tribes ran "Women in Property Week". Here is a reprise of some of the most inspirational interviews:SEE ALSO - Why do so few women invest in property?UP NEXT - Nicole Bremner: London development site visit DON'T MISS - Thoughts on women in propertyNOW WATCH:

I have found some of the best landlords are women
If you look at our business the core thing we supply is homes
Women have in general been home builders so it follows that some women make very good landlords
And if you look at a Household its normally the women who runs the home
So women to women there is an natural bond talking about every day issues that effect them in a home
so this is where we have the edge over guys
its in our DNA
Learn Change and Adapt ?????
Another fascinating thread Vanessa!
I would like to think women can be more empathetic and responsive to tenants' needs, but I bet that's not always the case. I recognise that some women can be rather brittle and hard-nosed and if I really think about all the people who have helped me in a practical sense recently it's all been men!
So, not convinced women are always better, although I do think they may be more natural about recognising what their tenants need to be properly comfy.
Am just as interested, if not more interested, in women property developers.
I wonder how much of this increasing activity is driven by things like divorce or the fact that many women who had children recognise they will have a deficit in terms of pensions etc?
There are quite a few female developers around. One ran a profile of a London refurb here on PT - last year? I think. And (if it's ok with Vanessa to give a heads up on this) there's some strong input from a couple of women investors in a feature in the forthcoming May issue of YPN.

Have worked with women in corporate life and in property and generally, they are SOOOOO much better at the relationship and team building side of things which is essential in property management.
I've learned a lot by working with women. Increasingly, there is less room and tolerance for the macho management styles so prevalent in the 70's and 80's.
LETS MAKE HOMES by treating landlords as partners, tenants as customers & every property as our own."
