Marketing Your Rental Property – It’s Easy With Redstones

Property owners rent out their properties for a number of reasons. For a growing number of people, it is part of a long-term business plan to build a portfolio and accrue assets. Some of our clients rent their property as a short-term solution if they are struggling to sell it. For some it is a way of covering their costs while travelling abroad.

Whatever the reason for placing your property on the rental market, the majority of landlords need to secure a suitable tenant quickly to cover mortgage payments.

As we know from the clients who come to us through our Switch Agents programme  the lettings sector is often renowned for rogue lettings agents who lack ethical standards of service. We frequently hear from clients who have signed exclusive agreements with an agent, only to find that no activity has been taken to secure suitable tenants.

At Redstones, we operate a pro-active, comprehensive marketing strategy supported by state-of-the-art technology, which is available to all of our clients.  Here are just some of the highlights:-

  • Comprehensive, full colour online brochures for your property. All of our photos are presented with accurate measurements and detailed descriptions. Our landlords can also take advantage of downloadable 3D colour brochures and optional floor plans to market their properties if they choose.
  • At Redstones, we continue to promote rental properties until they are let.  There is no time limit on how long we will work to secure suitable tenants for our clients.  We work hard to provide high levels of customer service to every landlord.
  • Established presence on all of the prominent property websites, as well as some of the lesser known ones, to ensure the widest coverage possible.  It is estimated that 95% of all property searches are now carried out online which means every lettings agent must have an established online presence in order to market your property effectively. You will find Redstones properties on a variety of websites including Zoopla, Rightmove, Mouseprice, FindaProperty, Primelocation, Propertyfinder, Globrix, Hotproperty, Thinkproperty, Propertyindex, Propertylive, Homesonview and more.
  • Our properties are easily identified by our distinctive ‘To Let’ boards. With our reputation for quality and our policy for treating all of our tenants with respect and courtesy, we find this complements our in-depth online strategy.
  • Access to a database of tenants with details of their preferred location, type of house and ideal price range. This enables us to instantly promote your property to appropriate tenants.
  • Accompanied viewings which allow our landlords to relax knowing that a Redstones representative is available arrange viewings for prospective tenants at short notice. We find this shortens the period of time it takes to secure a suitable tenant.

We also carry out full background checks on all of our tenants. For your extra peace of mind, at Redstones we offer our Platinum Total Care Service which means your rent is paid, regardless of whether or not we have received payment from the tenant.
