Marketing your property is one of the first steps needed to become a successful landlord if you are to rent out your property consistently and for its true value.
Correct pricing is essential but so is marketing your property; a more complex strategy which requires many components. You need to make your property attractive to potential tenants and target the right people by letting them know you have an available property for rental by advertising in the right places.
By using Homelife Lettings, who have over 40 years of experience letting Southampton houses and flats, your property will be marketed to a large number of prospective tenants, including professional people, families and students. We have the knowledge and experience to help landlords successfully market their properties, advising you of any hurdles and pitfalls you may encounter and what tenants expect when they open the door to your rental property.
Homelife Lettings always has a large database of tenants which we will target for you. Potential tenants who register with us will be informed of your vacancy, as will our previous tenants who may be looking for somewhere new to stay. Properties are always matched to the needs of the tenant, so your property will be seen by a large, but relevant, list of possible tenants.
The process begins with Homelife Lettings giving your property a free evaluation and marketing appraisal, including discussions about the rental price you are planning to ask, so you can determine how best to market your property.
Good quality photographs will be taken, including both interior and exterior pictures, which we’ll put onto our website along with all the details of your property.
Your property will also be marketed on social media including our Twitter and Facebook accounts as well as being included in local print publications.
Potential tenants will be screened for you, so you can be alerted about any issues that might make them unsuitable for your property. Homelife Lettings will also set out an agreement that is mutually acceptable for you and your tenants. You won’t have to pay us any fees until your property is successfully let.
Once your property has been successfully rented should the task of maintaining your property become too time consuming then you can let your Homelife Lettings’ dedicated property manager take care of your unwanted duties via our full property management service.
As a member of the Southern Landlords Association, we follow their Code of Conduct, so you and your tenants know they will receive high customer service standards.
