Finding a Tenant by the End of 2019

Finding a Tenant by the End of the Year 2019

If you haven’t still found a tenant up to now and or before heading away for your festive break up or holidays, you don’t need to rush or worry.  Home Relief can take care of your property to ensure you get the right letting deal by the end of this year.

We can undertake a number of steps to let your property before the festive celebrations or provide you with an undertaking so that your vacant property is filled with suitable tenants when you return after the festive break.

The steps we can take include the following:

√ Inspect your property and do some suggestions, if required, regarding its overall rentability and marketability

√ Provide you a current and realistic rent valuation of your property if you can’t do it by yourself

√ Agree with you whether you want to let now or to wait at the start of the New Year

√ Re-profile the types of prospective tenants you are looking for

√ Reassess all the marketing channels and steps you have so far taken to try to let your property

√ Re-market your property through revised marketing channels (both print and online)

√ Organise festive accompanied viewing appointments on your behalf

√ Provide you a brief at the end of this process and let you to decide.

The above are generic steps which we can customise depending on your situation and the conditions of your property.

Alternatively, if you decide to postpone the need of having tenants by the end of 2019 and want somebody else to take care of your property until you are ready for letting it in the New Year, Home Relief can still look after it.  We can take care of a property that is tenanted or vacant or even under refurbishment.

If interested in Home Relief taking care of your property over this festive season, please contact us!

Rental Backup

Backing up your rental offer

How to get your rental offer accepted

We see many home seekers viewing properties and showing interest or making an offer on a property.  For some of them, their offers end up accepted.   For others, their offers fail short to go through or simply do not reach the completion stage.

It is known that any rental offer on a property would compete with other existing and potential offers in any ends (high, medium and low) of the market.  Therefore, renters need to try to back up their offer with something tangible (like additional security) so that they can maximise their chance or succeed in their bit to rent their ideal property. 

In particular time like of festive season, this back up is even crucial in a property market where every home seeker, let alone those with ordinary or modest incomes, is hunting for the best possible festive deal to make their housing ends and needs meet before the end of the year if they are planning to move by this time.

This week, we are looking at with renters how to back up their offer and get it accepted by the end of home seeking process.  It is not enough to make an offer, although the practice is that once an offer is made on a property this property is labelled as under offer and eventually withdrawn from the market until final completion. 

Home seekers need to back up their offer to increase the chance for their rental applications to reach the final stage.  They need additional security for their rental offer to be converted into a buy.  They need to closely monitor their offer made and follow its progress and development. 

For some landlords/ladies, once an offer is made, the property is put under offer (or on hold) and they are not open to listen to other offers.  For other landlords/ladies, it is not the case.  They can still open their minds to other offers until they get the best possible one.  They may as well think that renters can still change their minds.

This week, renters can learn or relearn the way of backing up their rental offer so that their offer reaches the conversion stage.  They will also have the opportunity to understand the rental selection process and criteria in order for their rental applications to be considered instead of that of their competitors.

If you are planning to make a festive rental offer or has already made it and need to back it, this week’s session is the right one for you through Home Relief.

If you are planning to pass your New Year’s Eve and New Year in a new home, Home Relief can help you to achieve your festive dream.

We could help you save money and put everything together in place in advance.

√ Negotiate letting and renting terms with you

√ Sort out deposit and rent in advance

√ Organize references on time

√ Progress report from all parties involved

Saving money on your festive rental

Saving money means that the early home seekers contact us this month for rent, the better rental deal in terms both home quality and discount they can get.  Especially at this last month of the year, prices tend to go up everywhere without exception of the properties to let. 

For those with ordinary incomes and means of living, it is advisable to get in touch soon to find out affordable accommodation before the end of year.
