    Marketing and Advertising
    image cannot be displayed

    The lettings market has dramatically changed in the last five years and it is now even more important to get the marketing absolutely correct in order to achieve your premium rental income.

    Over 92% of all property enquiries come through the internet so your property has to be advertised in the correct way and from the day it hits the market. There are many different aspects to this and if it is not done correctly you will not generate the best possible price.

    We advertise on all the major property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and also a few niche websites too. Your property will not get better exposure anywhere else!

    Harringtons are also very proud to be the grandstand sponsors at Brighton Racecourse which gives us great exposure across the City and allows us to host events where we will actively promote your property.

    Professional Photography

    It is very important to get the advertising correct on these websites. Figures from Rightmove say that 70% of enquiries come within the first week of hitting the website so it is vital to get the first advertising correct.

    We have invested heavily in photography to make sure that our staff are professionally trained photographers. This allows us to get better photos than every other agent. Rightmove figures show that properties with professional photographs get 55% more enquiries than properties without.

    The examples on the next page show how our photography has worked in getting properties let compared to our competitors.

    Both examples were marketed by us and a competitor. Our photographs were very different and, as we expected, we had a substantial amount of interest and let both properties immediately.

  • paragraph

    Open Days

    We have created an "open day" in the lettings industry which ensures that we have multiple viewings on one day when your property first becomes available. This gives us an unrivalled edge over other agents and ensures multiple viewings on one visit. This ensures competition between tenants not only to have the property let quickly but we can choose the best tenant for your property.

    Top Tips for Landlords
    image cannot be displayed

    There are many things that you should be aware of and do as a landlord. We love to share our expert knowledge with you. If it is mortgaged, ask your lender's permission to let your property. You might need to switch to a specialist buy-to-let mortgage.

    Get your property ready for rent

    Good first impressions count. Clear your front garden and decorate your property in neutral colours. All small touches will make a difference. Try and create a feeling of space by taking away everything that you are not planning on leaving at the property.

    The better the property, the better the tenant

    Keeping your property immaculate and ready to let can really guarantee a good tenant. Other characteristics should include that they are clean - a tidy property with reasonable fittings and a neutral décor is always popular. If this could also include Wi-Fi, cable or satellite TV these are always preferable.

      Thank you, im glad your happy with our service.
      After a bad experience with my previous letting agent, I am much happier with the service I am now receiving from Harringtons Lettings. My contact Rachel keeps me updated on a regular basis and informs me of any problems that arise at my property and quickly rectifies the issue. Definitely a move for the better! Thanks Harringtons!

      Its great to work with a landlord like you!
      I recently used Harringtons Lettings to let my property, I joined Harringtons over a year ago as an introduction Landlord as I wanted to try them out before asking them to manage my property. Its always difficult to choose the right agency so I was cautious about giving to much to soon.I was pleasantly surprised! They managed to get me the asking price I wanted with no problems at all, Let the property straight away with brilliant tenants! I dealt with the Branch Manager Aston, he is very professional and so easy to communicate with! If I have any problems (which is rare) its dealt with straight away! He is definitely more interested in your best interests rather than any money he may get out of you! If your thinking of using a lettings agent I would definitely recommend Harringtons! I've recently just handed my property over to them on a fully managed contract!

      Thank you for your review and I'm glad we could help
      "In May I was looking to rent a new flat and had contacted several letting agents and been to quite a few viewings, which were all unsuccessful for various reasons. Then, Harringtons Lettings put a nice photo on their website, I contacted them and spoke to Aston who organized an immediate viewing. The flat was exactly what I was looking for a good quality and great location. The viewing was excellent, I thought Aston was really professional and straightforward in the terms of how to get the paperwork sorted and get the renting process going forward. I found their whole approach to customer service from start to finish, excellent. Especially the administrative team in the office who dealt with the tenancy agreement efficiently and effectively, and their attention to detail in a really lovely manner. In my experience Harringtons Lettings were brilliant."

      Thanks for the feedback, it is much appreciated
      "Harringtons have been, by far, the best letting agents I have used. They are quick to respond to queries, and in their response they have always been understanding as I am not a person, not an address, and that my home is my castle. In cases such as problematic neighbours, contract renewal, losing the first copy of my contract, expiring boilers, builders locking me out, and, in redecorating, flooding from the flat above, confusion about washing machines, they have been approachable, efficient and personable. I cannot fault them regarding the paperwork, financial transactions, being a go between, between myself and the property owner all have been excellent. Having used agencies before when I had to chase my own queries, having been spoken to like they were begrudgingly doing me a favour in returning my deposit and such. It was such a relief to be treated like a person. A person who wants to make moving as easy as possible and that someone had sorted thing out under the tenant's control. They have been great."

      We are glad your are sorted now and thank you.
      "I have rented through Harringtons for the last four years in three different properties and would not go anywhere else! The first one I moved into I had to deal with the landlady and nothing ever seemed to get done so I moved out after six months, Harringtons tried to sort the problems but they could not control the shocking landlady I had!! Since then I have moved into two different properties and dealt with Jade, she has always sorted any problem that has come up immediately. I have a lovely flat now that Aston worked really hard to secure for me. I have nothing but good to say about the whole team from Harringtons."
