Get Your Property Ready
You may think that the Christmas period is all about presents, parties and pear trees but for thousands of people across the UK it's also about property. Every year thousands of people make time for house-hunting during the busy festive period, window-shopping for a new property from the comfort of their own home. We then return to a flurry of enquiries in the New Year, which resulted in us letting 83 properties in the first couple of weeks of January this year.
Potential tenants use the holiday week as an opportunity to consider and discuss properties with those around them, meaning that they are ready to proceed at the start of business in January. As such, you need to ensure your property is listed and looking its best online. You (or your current tenants) will not be bothered with viewings at the property over the holiday break, but it is vital for your prospective tenants to be able to look online, whet their appetite and contact us to book viewings in the New Year.
Why list with Finders Keepers?
Finders Keepers will find you the best tenant at the best rent by starting with an honest valuation based on similar properties we have let in the area. This way you avoid the over-inflated quote, which is then sheepishly dropped in the New Year, missing all of that Christmas traffic. Then, once the viewings start, we won't just get you the first tenant through the door, we will get you the right tenant, and if you have a well-matched tenant you're much more likely to have a happy tenancy throughout the rest of 2020. Your property will then be managed by one Property Manager, who is based locally to your property and carries out the full tenancy lifecycle (including the 24/7 emergency line) in-house.
What are you waiting for?
Paul Rushworth, Managing Director, says: "You might think that Christmas is relatively quiet for property letting, but it actually provides a huge opportunity. With the vast majority of people on holiday over Christmas and actively considering a new home for the New Year, now is time to get your property listed for letting in 2020. Instruct us before you put the tree up and we will ensure that your property is looking its best online ready for applicants to see while they are off work."
If you want to let your property at the best rent and to the best tenants in 2020 you need to list your property with Finders Keepers before Christmas. Get in touch today for a no-obligation chat: 01865 311011 or firstname.lastname@example.org
