We posted a listing for a decent quality one bedroom flat in Catford SE6 on our website a few days ago.
Here is the listing:
Once updated on our website the advert was fed through to our partner advertising sites, namely – Rightmove, find a property, Zoopla, Prime Location, Property Live, Home, Net House Prices and Trovit.
Within hours we had booked 3 viewings and the viewer that the landlord preferred offered over the asking price.
Whilst a lead had come from Rightmove and one from Zoopla, the eventual tenant was an enquiry from our own website, which perfectly highlights the benefits of spending time to optimise your website effectively.
When over 90% of tenants search for their property online using the portals and websites listed above – why would you really want to pay an agent a fee that averages around 10% just to find a tenant, when every agent is effectively doing the same marketing?
Of course any tenancy is subject the the tenant passing a stringent reference checking process.
