Showing Tenants Around

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Some people feel that flats and houses should be able to “let themselves” and do not need to be “shown” by letting agents. Whilst this may be true of certain exceptional properties, or where achieving the optimum rent is not an issue, most properties require the skills of a well-trained letting agent if they are to secure a good rent within a reasonable timescale.

One benefit of your letting agent showing prospective tenants around, rather than you, or, believe it or not, handing out the key, is prompt and honest feedback. Many tenants wish to avoid appearing rude and build up a landlord’s hopes by telling them what they want to hear; “It’s lovely – we’ll get back to you”. By the time they have seen several other properties their feedback to the agent about your particular property is likely to be minimal.

Additionally, the tenant will probably want to discuss aspects of the property out of the landlord’s earshot for ear of offending. When we show your property, immediate feedback can be generated from tenants who might not have been so frank with you directly. This helps us understand their preferences and allows us to fine-tune our marketing efforts. Our landlord clients often tell us that sincere post-viewing feedback significantly helps to reduce the stress of letting, and after all, this is surely one of the most compelling reasons for appointing a professional and reputable letting agency to represent you as you seek to maximise your investment.

Please feel free to contact us at any time on 01242 257333 OR 01452 597994 if you would like to discuss any aspect of letting your property, without obligation.
