I’m saying this because I’m glad that I made the choice of hiring the best letting agents Edinburgh to help me with my buy-to-let project, which now brings me, not an outstanding extra income, but nice money for gas and bills.
Don’t get me wrong, no one really needs to hire a real estate agent or a letting agent. You can basically do yourself whatever they do. But since letting agents usually have a history in this kind of business, they know all the angles of the problem, and it’s worth to pay their fees for a job outstandingly done.
Have you thought so far of what a letting agent do for you? If you don’t know that, let’s have a glimpse of the usefulness of a letting agent.
So, what can a letting agent do for you?
To answer this question I’ll try to be as concise as I can. Firstly, a letting agent will give a lot of visibility to your property. They have really nice websites which are known by people in the area and in the country, and once your property will be part of their database, you will gain hundreds of potential tenants. As an example, I invite you to take a look at the website of the letting agents Edinburgh I’ve been working with. Just have a look, it won’t bite you.
Letting agents have a lot of experience in checking the financial backgrounds of your potential tenants. They will surely provide you with the ones that afford to pay. Even more, since a letting agent extracts its fee from the monthly rental payment, you can be sure they will fight for a monthly rate as high as possible. More money for you, more money for them.
Lastly, a letting agent can take off your hands plenty of tedious tasks related to a letting contract. For example, taking care of repairs for a leaky pipe on your property, or collecting the rent money.
There are many more beneficial aspects of a letting agent that I can put in here, but instead of that, I’m going to give you a tip, in case you want to hire a letting agent.
Take note that not all letting agents a the best at what they do. Therefore, don’t just hire the first authorized letting agency that you pass by to manage your property. Conduct a little research on them first, and maybe ask other landlords about their letting agents. Also, keep in mind that the cheapest letting agent isn’t always the best to hire.
And when it comes to referral, if you live in Edinburgh or if your property that you intend to let is there, I can only recommend the letting agents Edinburgh I’ve been working with. They have done a great job so far for me, and will surely treat you with the same respect and professionalism.
