Prep your property too, and benefit from the increase in traffic to the major portals.
If you are looking to let a property, don’t be put off by the hibernation stigma attached to the winter lettings market!
During the winter, while people are naturally drawn to the warmth of the indoors, they turn to their phones and computers and we see a significant increase in the number of property related searches.
Last year there was a 231% increase in visits to Rightmove between Christmas Day and 2nd January making now the perfect time to get your property prepped and on the market!*
At Townends Estate Agents we are perfectly positioned to help our landlords take advantage of this increased interest on property portals. We will list your property on Rightmove, Zoopla, OnTheMarket and our own website to ensure the maximum amount of people find your property. Additionally, we invest in Google Paid Advertising to further capture tenants searching for a new home online in your local area.
Let us help you be a savvy landlord and get your property ready and on the market before Christmas, so you can take advantage of the seasonal rush and get the most people looking at your property.
Accentuating your property’s unique features will help you turn successful viewings into offers. During your free, no-obligation valuation, your local lettings expert will advise you on a property marketing strategy that draws attention to all the best bits about your rental home. For example, if its positioned close to local transport links and schools or shops, we will ensure these features are highlighted in your online listing. We will also instruct a professional photographer to capture your property in the best possible light as well as draw a floorplan and create a video tour.
We can also advise you on the presentation of your property, offering simple solutions to make your property look light and welcoming on a dark wintery day. Try to keep the main areas neutral and open to allow tenants to visualise how their possessions will look in the space.
Once you have found a tenant and accepted an offer, our service doesn’t stop there. In fact, this is where we come into our own. With dedicated Move-In, Property Management and Renewals Teams you can trust that your let will run smoothly and be compliant with the latest legislation. Our Fully Managed Plus service finds you the best tenants, covers all of your legal and compliance obligations, with rent protection and maintenance issues taken care of, leaving you with complete peace of mind.
