Goose with the golden egg!

Advertise on Rightmove – the goose with the golden egg!

We are often asked by our property hawk landlords, “I have a vacant BTL property which I need advertising, can you recommend an Online Letting Agent?

So we set about looking into this conundrum to see for ourselves which of the new breed of online letting agents was worth their weight in gold.

Looking at some of the online agents, it appears selecting a reputable, genuine agent is like searching for a needle in the proverbial “haystack”.

With many of the new generation “Online Letting Agents” springing up like tulips in the spring (and lasting about that long too) I need a company that has been around for a while and has built a reputable service.

Many websites are joining the online revolution somewhat later than the original players and they seem to come and go like the British sun at this time of year!

So the question is “What do I need in my online letting agent?”

First of all I need to let my property ASAP so I need to advertise on all the major property websites (such as Rightmove) as quick as possible and of course for a reasonable price!

Secondly, as I am new to advertising online, I would like a friendly voice on the other end of the phone to talk me through any technical difficulties I might have. After all, I am a landlord, I’m not Bill Gates!

I also want to talk to a person who has an understanding of the market place and not an offshore call centre who will guarantee to return my call within 24 hours. As I said I need to let my property yesterday not tomorrow!

And finally, I need support all the way through the process from writing my advert, to dealing with any enquiries and finally helping me secure my deposit with the relevant authority (to ensure I am not breaking the law).

I don’t want just some of these, I need all of these, and I need them all in one place.

If this sounds like some of the questions you might ask, then you will probably come up with the same answer for all –“!”

From advertising online to processing full tenant references, you are able to pick and choose which services you require - a real life one stop landlord shop

If you are a seasoned landlord and are just looking to advertise on Rightmove this is an option available to you too.
