The HMO market has historically been a tough sector to master and many mistakenly assume that low returns and problematic tenants come with the territory. But this doesn’t have to be the case if you decide to become a ‘Next Level Landlord’.
In his number one bestselling first edition of Next Level Landlord released in 2021, Matt Baker, a specialist in Next Level HMO® and co-living developments, revealed the five principles of becoming a Next Level Landlord. He showed that by choosing the right property and improving the quality of space and service, landlords can maximise profits and create shared properties where tenants love to live.
This newly revised edition for 2022 has been updated to reflect the latest housing figures and planning rules, and continues to be the leading guide to successful and profitable property investment today.
Next Level Landlord is the ideal resource for those wanting to identify the ideal property and create a space that tenants will fight tooth and nail to rent. It will help the reader to not only become an expert in their chosen areas but to build the best team around them to deliver quality HMOs, time and time again.
High churn rates are a common occurrence in the rental world but rather than be accepted as the norm, Matt argues that it is a problem which can be easily avoided with the right approach. Matt expertly reveals his successful co-living approach to setting up and managing shared houses to not only attract but most importantly retain high-value tenants.
No property business can scale without the proper processes and procedures in place. Matt generously shows the reader how to systemise their business to increase profitability, returns and occupancy
“This revised edition of Next Level Landlord is not far behind the original, but the market and the rules move quickly, and I believe it is important to update landlords on these changes, to ensure that this book continues to be the go-to resource for successful property investing today,” explains Matt.
Ian Bluck, co-founder of Co:Home recommends the book. “Matt speaks very openly about putting the housemate at the heart of everything you do in creating a first class customer experience within the house,” he says. “If you are a landlord or investor looking to stand out from the rest of the market, this book is a must read.”
