What is an online letting agent?
An online letting agent is a platform that allows private landlords to market their properties effectively on the UK’s most recognised property websites.
Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location offer the widest audience for active searching tenants. These are the most recognised property websites and have the highest traffic when it comes to tenants searching for property.
Originally online letting agents were invented to help landlords find tenants from a DIY perspective and save thousands of pounds in commission fees. However, online letting agents have evolved substantially over the years and are now offering services such as rent collection, full management and rent guarantee.
Online agents usually charge landlords a fixed amount rather than commission. This way landlords know in advance how much the process will cost them.
4 reasons why you should use an online letting agent…
Control – With most online letting agents a landlord has access to a landlord dashboard area. Landlords can update their adverts, request changes and add additional services at any time.
Know your tenants – Meet the tenants earlier on in the process. As the landlord will be showing the property themselves, it gives both parties a better insight of each other well in advance before starting any referencing, paying a holding deposit or signing any documents.
Only pay for what you use – Be part of a bespoke process that meets your needs entirely. Landlords only need to pay for services they will use. Most online letting agents will offer a basic advertising service and then landlords will be able to add products such as photography or certificates if they require.
Save thousands in fees – Online agents market properties all over the UK so they are able to offer much better rates. The difference between a high street agent fee and Netlett is usually in the thousands. You can have a look at our savings calculator to see how much you can save.
