Crikey. There are loads of estate agents in Walthamstow arenít there? Even on our street. So why do so many sellers and landlords opt for East&Co?
Well, we know this corner of London like the back of our hands. That goes without saying. And we understand the market and what people are looking for too.
But itís all the extra stuff we do that makes our customers love us. (So they tell us.)
Like our rent management for landlords, which we do through our partners Abbeymove.
It means that in the unlikely event your tenant doesnít pay their rent, you still receive your money on the day itís due. And your costs are covered too if you need to evict a tenant. (If it ever came to that. Hopefully not.) The good news? Since 2013 they havenít had a single landlord lose any money through rent arrears.
Oh and we donít believe in charging tenant letting fees either. So we donít. (Thatís Right. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Nuffink).
This means we get lots of tenants interested in your property and it gets rented out much quicker. In fact, 20% of our properties are let before we even market them. And thatís because as soon as we see a new property, we whizz through our bulging database of potential tenants, give them a call, and get them to view the property as soon as possible. No wonder the average time it takes for us to let a property is only 3 days. And that includes weekends.
Of course, all potential tenants go through a thorough checking process before theyíre handed any keys. Weíre hot hot hot when it comes to checking references and financials. We wouldnít rent your property to just anyone.
Weíve also teamed up with a few local businesses to organise special offers for new tenants and owners, and we include these in our move in packs. Sweet.
Then we do things like proper floorplans and photographs. Itís amazes us how some estate agents donít bother too much with these. We do. Because it really helps sell or rent your property.
And weíre known for our one-of-a-kind property descriptions. Ours are always honest and real. No estate agent fluffery or jargon, or cutting and pasting. We take time writing our property descriptions because it really matters.
Last but not least. If youíre curious about how much your home is worth, we have a nifty Instant Valuation gadget. It takes about 30 seconds to do. And did we mention itís free? Yep. Itís free.
