Mike Ellis, director at elliswinters&co, has this advice for would-be landlords:
"Before instructing a rental agent, take time to check what they have to offer you as a landlord. How much do they charge? How often do they do inspections? etc. Also check the number of vacant properties they are advertising. If they have a lot of properties to offer it may be that their marketing is not getting results or that they are over valuing the properties just to get them on. Being realistic means you will avoid your rental being empty for months on end.
"Everyone here at elliswinters&co has a house marketing background and we are used to making properties stand out. Our details include lots of photographs, floor plans, room sizes and a full description. We advertise on the Rightmove website, in the Hunts Post and Fenland Citizen newspapers and The Guild of Property Professionals website and magazine. In short, we guarantee to get your property noticed.
"We're also open longer than most other rental agencies including all day Saturday and Sunday. We're always busy with viewings at the weekend and the majority of tenants make instant decisions, so if you are a Landlord and you are still looking for a tenant, give us a call, we can help”.
