Because of the low overheads and economies of scale (Upad advertise properties across the UK), online letting agents can pass these reduced costs onto landlords. Landlords are given the control of their rental profit with simple online tools. This means you can manage your property advert and tenancy, just by logging on.
What are the biggest differences between a high street agent and an online letting agent?
You can save hundreds of pounds with an online agent because there's just one upfront fee to pay to get your property online - no commission costs.
You'll be in control of letting your property by using our simple online tools to manage your ad, enquiries and paperwork.
An online agent is able to advertise a lot more properties than your average high street agent, which means cheaper costs and they can advertise your property wherever it is in the UK.
Online agencies don't need fancy high street branches, tenants simply enquire online or on the phone, which means you pay less too.
You're given all the online tools you need to find tenants and set up a tenancy. With an online dashboard, you can see your property details, enquiries and all paperwork is signed online.
Unlike the inflexible packages offered by high street agents, you just choose the services you need. Looking for tenants but do your own paperwork? Got your own photos? No problem.
With an online agent, you'll meet tenants yourself and conduct viewings. This means you choose the best tenant for your property, rather than relying on a second hand opinion.
You don't need a letting agent who doesn't know your property and charges you, and the tenant, extorionate fees. Advertise your property exactly where tenants go to look for their next property - Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.
