At Orlando Reid, we have years of experience working in the lettings industry and have experience of being tenant, landlord and property manager.
We advertise all our properties on the main UK property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla and
OnTheMarket. These platforms are the most used platforms by tenants, ensuring that we achieve
the maximum number of leads for your property.
Your property is not only connected online but also to our own internal network. A high percentage of successful lettings are from cross-selling, meaning introducing the viewers to a property other than the property on their first inquiry.
Our team of London property experts and ‘Manchester property experts’ get to know our customers and can match their needs to your property, thus creating a steady stream of house finders stored in our customer database. For example, once our team receives a rental enquiry and the customers’ details, we show them multiple homes that meet their criteria.
Properties which are let through agents are generally priced higher than private property to let.
Orlando Reid know how to price your property competitively, whilst keeping an eye on other
properties which come available to maximise price.
Property legislation related to lettings changes very regularly and there are over 190 pieces of
individual legislation which landlords are required to abide to. Orlando Reid constantly keeps up
with new lettings legislation advising our clients of how to operate within the law.
If you are dealing alone in the letting market, it’s going to be even harder, with having to check the latest legislation regularly, and dealing with taxation and compliance. If your property is not 100% compliant to the law, you can be penalised and even sentenced to imprisonment.
It is extremely important that properties have excellent photographs and a 3D tour/video to go with it. Tenants do judge a book by its cover, therefore if they don’t like what they see at the outset, then they could be put off by viewing the property. Simple things such as poor quality photos or a messy property that is not staged could put someone off viewing a property. Orlando Reid conduct professional photos and video tours on all properties ensuring that the particulars that the tenant receives are top notch!
Not only do we conduct a market appraisal of your property before bringing it to the market, we
offer extensive advice on steps you should take to maximise the price you achieve by making it more attractive to potential tenants. We offer advice on potential property staging tips or touch-ups and even full refurbishments.
