Choosing a Letting Agent to sell your home is a decision that should never be taken lightly. You need to ensure that the agent you choose will be proactive, effective and more importantly is right for not only you but your home.
We focus on what matters – finding fully referenced tenants for your property. Most agents focus on marketing their brand to attract the next seller to their agency.
Market Appraisal & Valuation
It is important that we give you an accurate valuation of your property and not just tell you the figure we think you want to hear. Many factors can affect a valuation; it is in your best interest that we give you an honest reflection on how your property will perform in the current market. Just telling you what we think you want to hear is disrespectful, leads to disappointment and a loss of trust.
How you present your property can often have an impact on the value and speed that tenants are found. Our market appraisal and valuation will also include tips and advice on presentation.
Once you’ve made the decision to be a Landlord and have purchased your property, you want to find quality tenants quickly and for the best price possible and we are here to achieve it for you.
Print & Internet Marketing
The fact is those printed high street property details cost money and no longer have any relevance (it’s the same information and photos as on the internet), so we don’t waste your money on them and the saving we pass onto you.
Over 90% of tenants find the property they eventually rent online and we make sure your property is where the tenants are looking, the leading property portal, Rightmove. In addition, we email and text each new instruction to potential buyers and use our popular website and social media channels to get your property in front of an even wider audience. This way no genuinely motivated buyer will miss your listing.
We believe that it’s important to build a relationship with the potential buyer viewing your property for sale, as it can often aid in encouraging an offer. Viewing a home is all about selling a lifestyle, and we can ensure that we tell the story of your home as well as answer any questions they may have on the property or area. And we don’t use part-time viewing staff that often don’t have the necessary knowledge and empathy. How can we sell your home if we are not there when potential buyers view?
Legal Compliance & Paperwork
It is our job to ensure you receive the correct legal advice and provide you and the tenants with the correct paperwork to include Professional Referencing, an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement and the necessary Deposit Protection forms.
We have developed for our Landlord clients not only a detailed Terms of Business but a quick reference Landlord Checklist so that nothing is missed.
Check-in & Management
We check the tenants in and produce a detailed Inventory and Schedule of Condition so that both Landlord and Tenants have a detailed record of the property at the start of the tenancy. Meter readings are taken and we ensure the tenants are aware of important details like where the stopcock is and where instruction manuals for the boiler and appliances are.
If you wish, we are happy to manage the property for you which includes rent collection and regular inspections. Alternatively, we will install the tenants and then pass everything over to you.
No useless but expensive extras, just a high quality service for a simple flat fee whether you just want us to find tenants for you or to manage the property on an ongoing basis.
