A recent survey has shown that some 27% of landlords consider an online letting agency to be a more attractive option for managing property than a traditional agency these days - with 31% of landlords considering going online to save more money.

Carried out by a large property consultancy company, the survey also found that:

  • 59% of landlords believe recent government tax changes for the PRS will damage their profitability,
  • 41% are considering incorporation,
  • 40% anticipate rental growth over the next 6 months,
  • With 37% reporting an increased demand from tenants in the past 6 months.

This is no surprise to us at TR Lettings, what with one of our latest landlord clients accumulating 34,953 property views in just 8 days of listing their property online with us!

No wonder more and more landlords are looking for a more effective way of letting their property whilst remaining in control of such things as viewings, tenancy agreements, etc; we've lost count of the amount of stories we hear from landlords about suffering at the hands of the traditional high-street letting agent, e.g.

I wonder whether LRS has considered a social media reference as part of its overall package albeit at a slightly higher cost

There are many idiot tenants out there that spill the beans about their true lifestyles etc on social media

This information is obviously of great interest to prospective LL

Many a tenant has been undone by their social media presence

As someone who is a social media idiot I would far prefer LRS to carry out social media referencing than me attempting to do it

With the whizzes at LRS I'm sure they could rustle up social media checks in a thrice

Something to think about for the the near future perhaps!!?

I have never used a company that is so easy to deal with, I had 5 people reply to the advert the 1st day it went on their books and the 1st couple to view agreed to rent, I will definitely be using this service again. Very good value for money.
