Annual Rent Reviews as standard

We’ll do all we can to help you earn the premium rental from your property investment with an annual rental review. We’ll also advise when not to push it for fear of the dreaded ‘void’ month. Getting the best value year-on-year is a careful balance that Accommodation Unlimited will help you manage.

Over the 25 years we’ve been helping landlords to manage their property portfolios we’ve been frustrated by the fact that the majority of estate agents don’t understand that as a buy-to-let investor you need a different kind of service when it comes to buying or selling a property.

We understand that buy-to-let properties are not just bricks and mortar but going concerns which need to be marketed and sold as such. It is why we launched our own dedicated estate agency specifically for landlords. This in conjunction with our Personal Shopper Service which has already helped many of our clients find properties to add to their portfolios means we can provide a holistic service to our clients.

Our Estate Agency provides all of the standard marketing and sales services offered by mainstream agents but with additional services that are specific to buy-to-let properties.

An investor looking to purchase a property will want clear and substantiated information about the investment potential of the property including information about the following areas:

  • The current rent and what rent increases there have been in the past
  • The number of voids there have been over the last three years
  • The level of any maintenance costs and details of service charges
  • Whether the property is let furnished
  • How long the current tenants have been in situ and whether they are looking to stay

Our product particulars include all of this information and much more as standard, giving potential purchasers a much clearer picture of the true value of the property as a going concern.  We believe that by marketing properties in this way, as going concerns, from the outset we can achieve higher prices and prevent sales from falling through.

In addition, our extensive knowledge of the Bristol rental market means we are ideally placed to provide a more tailored and value added service to those looking to sell or purchase buy to let properties.

To find out more about the service and how our team of property experts can help you sell your property or expand your portfolio give them a call on 0117 973 9394.
