tips on how letting agents
Residential estates can only be profitable if the tenants remit rent fees in time and use the
facilities responsibly. Letting agents Derby are usually responsible for getting good tenants for
their clients, a task that is not very easy. While many letting agents are usually persuaded to think
that those with higher income levels are the best tenants to enlist, they soon find out that income
levels are no indicators of good tenants. People can default on rent payment even when they earn
huge incomes! The converse is also untrue and those with low income levels may also default on
rent fee remission just as those with huge incomes. Good tenancy is a matter of self-discipline
and character, not income level.
Check Rent Payment History
Determining whether a prospective tenant would be good should not be a matter of guesswork.
Start by checking an individual's rent payment history. Ask the prospective tenant to provide you
with the name, phone number and address of the previous landlord or letting agent. Visit or call
the agent to find out the rent payment history of the individual. If the prospective tenants have
never lived in any residential estates, you will have no rent payment records to refer to, but you
can discuss with the tenants to get a good picture of how they plan to remit rent. Explore their
income sources, the dates that they find convenient to pay rental fees, and how they plan to
handle any future setbacks to their income with respect to timely rent payment.
Keep Active Links with Other Agents
Maintaining good working relationships with other letting agents Derby will allow you to know
when and who is moving from one estate to the other. Under such circumstances, you will be
better placed to learn about persons looking for houses and to market your client's estate
appropriately. Proper working relationships with other agents will allow you to consult them freely,
especially when seeking to know the rent payment history of new tenants.
Keep Your Estate Decent
Many good tenants will be attracted by a decent and secure residential estate. Who does not
want to live in a clean, convenient and safe apartment? Many good tenants value convenience
and security over all else and will accept to pay the price for their comfort and safety. Make sure
that damages are fixed in time, that security lights are always working, and that clean water is
always running in the taps. The roof is the most evident component of a residential estate and you
should project the best possible image through an appealing roof color.
Manage Your Tenants Well
When tenants are served well, they get word out that yours is a first-rate residential estate. They
will alert their friends and workmates of any vacancies in your residential estate and talk
compellingly about the services. As a result, many people will be seeking occupancy at your
estate. Letting agents Derby should always know that reputation is the most potent selling point
for any real estate business. They should, therefore, project the best face of their estate to both
existing and prospective tenants.
