    It is a good idea to look at branding in a crowded market. The key here is that you must really stand out. Look at the demographics where you are and decide who you are most able to appeal to. ...

    Not every small landlord is clueless, although for the few who fail to comply with the rules, it is likely that they themselves will suffer as a result.
