The first one mentioned by Samuel Leeds is deal analysis. Being able to analyse a deal seems like such a basic element but it’s astounding how many landlords are unaware.

The second tip is a slightly softer skill but equally as important. You need an attitude of gratitude. That means being able to be confident and ambitious, without coming across as greedy.
