Online Letting Agents are the hands-on cost-effective option for landlords.
Any landlord who has had a bad experience with a high street agent has probably thought to themselves… “I could do this better myself”. But the question is, how do you find your tenants? An ad in the property window or in a local shop? Buying a couple of inches in the local paper? Gumtree?
Whilst these methods can be effective, the bottom line is that the very vast majority of tenants start looking for a property online, with rightmove and zoopla being the two foremost go-to places.
So how does a landlord get their property advertised on rightmove and zoopla without their local high street agent?
The answer is an online letting agent.
For minimal cost, you can advertise your property across the internet, get tenant leads sent directly to you, and find your next tenants quickly and easily – without a high street agent.
All online letting agencies work differently, but essentially they will find you tenants, reference check them for you, and provide you with a contract – everything you need to start a new tenancy.
It’s really simple and can save you a fortune in agent fees.
Where the catch? Well if you can call it a catch, you have to be willing and able to accompany viewings. Many landlords actually prefer to meet their potential tenants. It gives them the freedom to hand-pick who they will let to
Online letting agents aren’t just for the cash-poor time-rich landlords either. They are for any landlord who wants to stay in control of the whole process.
