Conversion of Rental Enquiries
How to convert your initial enquiries into a successful rental later
This week, we are dealing with property enquiries made by home seekers to rent a property; enquiries made whether via emails or social media networks or phone calls or physical visits.
This week’s activity concerns mostly those home seekers with very limited incomes, low income earners, ordinary people and families, those who are making enquiries for properties where prospective tenants can part pay the rent and part claim housing benefit, etc.
Understanding rental enquiries
Rental enquiries here should not be confused with a Property Enquiry Certificate (PEC) which is a standard report on information (often required when buying or selling a property) regarding Statutory Notices and other legal orders and regulations that affect a property.
A rental enquiry is one of the initial steps in trying to find a property to rent. If this initial step is badly handled, this could sometimes jeopardize the rest; meaning that everything could stop without one or both parties (those making rental enquiries and those responding to those enquiries) to proceed further.
This is why it is vital to get this right from the beginning. Particularly, when you are on limited earning income it is in your interest to well handle the property enquiries process in order to maximise your rental chance and get your target property.
What to consider in order to maximise your rental probability
To proceed with rental enquiries, we are going to look at the following:
√ What preparations home seekers need to make before they start enquiring about a property to rent
√ Enquiries content (what you should or should not include in your enquiry and why)
√ How to follow your enquiry in order they can be converted into an effective buy
From the above general enquiries, we will then deal with specific enquiries related to home seekers’ target properties to rent.
How to enquire for and identify your target rental property
We all want to rent or live in ideal or target property. Target property is a property that a particular home seeker is aiming at renting at a particular location, at a given market price and at a determined time.
But, can we afford it? Especially, when one is on low income brackets, it could be unrealistic to get their target property outside their budget constraints.
This is why this week we are trying to e-work with home seekers, under the topic of conversion of rental enquiries, in helping them to bridge the gap between the requirements of their target property and affordability. This e-work with them is also part of Home Relief’s Help to Rent.
Items for discussion with home seekers
To support home seekers in achieving or reaching their goal/target property, the following items will be discussed together with them:
√ Target property rent versus affordable rent
√ Preferred location versus circumstantial location
√ Prospective landlords/ladies or letting agents
√ Types and sizes of properties
√ Tenancy terms and conditions
Our support to home seekers via Help to Rent is accessible to all types of home seekers: students, young working professionals, professional couples, families, universal credit and housing benefit claimants, retirees etc. We will be supporting them to convert their initial enquiries into palpable rental outcomes.
How to convert your rental enquiries into an effective let or rental
Most importantly for this week is to explore with home seekers technics and strategies to convert their initial enquiries to a successful let or rental. It is important since we keep noticing that so many renters do enquiries and sometimes these enquiries end without any tangible outcomes or results.
Converting rental enquiries into a let is the means or process by which one can achieve their goal of getting their target property. However, to achieve this goal conversion must happen. There could be various reasons that make this conversion happen or does not happen.
This week, we are going to e-work with them to get the enquiry process right from the beginning so that they can mitigate the reasons that militate against enquiries conversion. By doing so, one can hope that when looking for accommodation to rent they can save the following:
Particularly at this difficult time of the coronavirus pandemic and economic recession, it does not make sense wasting time through enquiries without reaching any rental goal or deal.
If you have a problem in making rental enquiries and or to find your target property, Home Relief can help you to improve the way you are making your enquiries and, most significantly to convert your enquiries into a let/rental by getting your target property at an affordable rent.
