How to switch and save money when letting your property
It has been a difficult year for landlords with all the changes in legislation and it looks like there is more on the way. As the financial pressures are starting to take hold, we know that you will be looking at your costs more than ever. Some landlords see moving the way of having their property managed as one way to save costs, especially if they are not happy with their letting agent. But new research contradicts this idea, noting that a good letting agent can actually save you money.
Endsleigh Insurance found that the average monthly saving for using a letting agent is £159 according to the insurance firm, that’s an estimated £1910 a year. The reasons for the savings are clear, as a letting agent we invest heavily in marketing resources such as the online property portals, this enables us to attract and reach potential tenants quicker and easier. As we can maintain a database of prospective tenants, we can proactively set things in motion to help restrict void periods. We all know what a drain a void can have on your investment, which is why by having a plan to set things in motion we can minialise he risk, thus save you money.
Managing a property can be challenging as well as take up a lot of time and resources. As we have a dedicated team ready to react as and when needed, we can ensure that any repairs and maintenance is completed as swiftly and efficiently as possible.
