If you’re a seasoned lettings veteran, or even a first time landlord, you might well be looking for an alternative to the outdated model of high street letting agents. And you wouldn’t be alone – as our recent research discovered, a staggering 25 per cent of people surveyed said they’d prefer to use modern, digital letting services.
So whether you’re one of these people, or just someone who’s open to trying new ideas, here are some of the most important reasons why switching to an online estate agents could save you a lot of time, money and stress.
One of the many problems with traditional high street estate agents is they charge you a lot of money for obsolete services that aren’t all that much use to you. In fact, this is so profound that the price difference between high street and online letting agents is easily in the thousands.
Online letting agents like LetBritain charge a simple, one-time package fee, with none of the dreaded admin fees and commission associated with the old letting process. With basic prices starting from £99, there really is no comparison.
Our guiding principle is that we believe tenants and landlords are far better judges of what they need from each other and their properties than we are. So why not cut out the middle man and let people get on with what they do best?
Our LetBritain property database allows landlords to take charge of their own advertisement, putting them directly in contact with potential tenants. So you can decide for yourselves when the best time for a viewing is, how to do it, when to sign your contract and when to move in. The last thing online letting agents want is to charge you more money to do something that you’d rather do yourself. Keep it simple.
Traditional high street letting agents are, unfortunately, still stuck in the old outdated model of putting an advert in the window, or a ‘to-let’ sign on the lawn, and hoping the tenants will come to you. In a modern digital age, where 51 per cent of people go online for the vast majority of services, this method is cumbersome, outdated – and ineffective.
If you want to get the greatest possible selection of candidates, and rent your property for the best rates in the shortest time possible, you need to go online. Go for the simple, convenient and effective model with LetBritain. Sign up today or give us a call on 0203 105 7450 to find out more.
