Step 3: Preparing for viewings

To enable us to show your home in its best possible light, it’s worth considering any DIY improvements that have a positive impact, such as potentially de-cluttering rooms. Please see our guide to Presenting your home.

It's time to create the marketing material that will entice prospective tenants to view your home, we consider ourselves to be very good at this our talented property photographers specialise in this fieldwho ensure your home is captured beautifully.

Through our website,, and all of the major property portals, we utilise the very latest tools including video and online content. Social media and the ever changing channels it provides are kept up to date through our marketing strategy.

We still continue with all conventional means of local advertising, email and SMS Alerts.

Step 5: Viewings

Viewings can be arranged around your timetable. Longer opening hours allow us to be accommodating towards tenanted properties, if your children go to bed at early we can arrange a time for the weekend for your viewings.

Most home sellers prefer to leave a key with us to take advantage of us accompanying the viewing and help sell their home.

Our valuers will advise you on the best marketing strategy for your specific property according to the market conditions and may suggest an open day or block viewing to maximise interest.

Step 6: Regular feedback

Prospective tenants are more comfortable being open and honest with an objective and non-biased person who can point out the benefits of your property in a relaxed and informative way. We'll discuss this with you during regular feedback and following every viewing, comparing how the let is going to the wider market at that time, and fostering a relationship of trust with you by making recommendations for a better sale based on honest viewing feedback.

Step 7: Offers

The moment we receive an offer you will be notified both verbally and in writing. We will communicate thoroughly the full situation, including the tenants position and financial status.

Any conditions or potential complications will be explained from the outset to ensure that the let runs smoothly and that it complies with your preferred timescale.

Step 8: Progression of let

Congratulations! You have accepted an offer and the letting progression can begin.
