A picture paints a thousand words
High-quality professional photographs that show off your property’s best features can make the difference between a viewing and someone clicking on to the next property. Our professional photographers use a wide angled lens to show each room off to its full potential. They’ll also utilise natural light within your property to create that beautiful airy, clean and spacious feel that tenants are looking for.
Understand the layout
The layout of the property could be a game changer for finding the right tenant. If you want your property to appeal to families, they’ll be looking for open plan space downstairs. If they have older children, they’ll want decent size bedrooms. We produce accurate floorplans to help attract the right tenants and ensure your property is correctly represented online.
Competitive rental price
Every landlord wants to achieve the highest rental price for their property, but it’s important to be realistic too – and with tenants being better equipped with information online in their hunt for the right rental property, they’re choosing more wisely and cautiously. We have a good sense of the market and demand for rental properties in Cheshire, so we know how to set a fair and reasonable monthly rent.
Understand your market
A clear understanding of which segment of the tenant market is best suited to your property will allow you to better position and present your rental property as well as helping you find suitable tenants quickly. If your property appeals to families, for example, you will need to highlight local schools in the area, parks and open plan features within the home. If it’s young professionals, then they’ll be keen on knowing what local transport links are in the area, what local amenities are within easy reach and also whether the landlord is willing to be flexible on furnishing the property. With a vast database of prospective tenants, we proactively call round to those we feel will be most suited to your property which has given us a strong track record of successfully let properties in the Cheshire area.
