    Why Let?

    In recent years the lettings market has changed beyond all recognition. The biggest legislative change was made with the 1988 Housing Act, which brought with it the Assured Shorthold Tenancy and revolutionised the market.

    More and more investors have entered the residential lettings market looking for a safe form of long term investment given the uncertainties in the world of finance and pensions. Homeowners often choose to let rather than sell their property in order to avoid realising their equity losses.

    If you are a professional landlord or you are considering a buy-to-let investment we can offer free advice on the best way to finance it. Many lenders now offer specialist buy-to-let mortgages, and through our links with Stuart Nunn & Associates we can help to find you the best deal. Not only do they shop around for you but the lender often pays their fees so the service may cost you nothing.

    If you are a homeowner/landlord our expertise and professionalism will help smooth the way and get you on the move with the minimum of hassle.

    Successful rental investment comprises three main factors - long term capital growth, maximum rent and maximum occupancy. Long term growth is determined by economic factors beyond the control of agents and landlords - but our professionalism and energy will help you maximise your rental figure by reducing marketing time and minimising void periods by quickly finding reliable, trustworthy tenants.

    Preparing your property for rental

    Increasing the desirability of your property by presenting it in the best possible way will maximise your rental figure by reducing marketing time and minimising void periods.

    It is important that the property looks inviting to prospective tenants. We recommend proper cleaning before marketing. It is a condition of the tenancy that it is left in the same state at the end of the let as it was when it started - so this is a worthwhile investment. It is recommended that the rooms should be free from clutter with only the fixtures and fittings that are to be left for use by the incoming tenant on display. Ideally décor and carpets should be in neutral colours as tenant's furniture is then more likely to suit. We have approved contractors for cleaning, decorating and general repair if required.

    The property can be let either furnished or unfurnished, we would be happy to advise on what would be the best option for your property, as it could depend on location and size. In either case, it should have curtains and carpets (where applicable). These days, even with furnished lets, we do find that most tenants do not require crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, toaster, kettle, etc. - consider keeping it simple.

    Finding a suitable tenant quickly is the best way to maximise rental income - here is how we do it...

    Marketing

    Advertising and Promotion

    Despite the increasing use of the internet traditional media still serves as an important source of prospective tenants. We advertise in a range of publications and have excellent relations with the editorial departments of the local press, often resulting in useful exposure within the property supplements.

    Prominent Office Locations

    Eye catching window displays and an inviting office for tenants to discuss their property needs creates a positive atmosphere. Our three branches, Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket provide the perfect backdrop to promote your property. All are located on busy shopping streets, and despite the increase in the use of the internet we still find many people calling in to check on our latest listings.

    Web footprint

    Technology is changing the way lettings and estate agents promote property. Our all new market leading website ensures the best possible worldwide coverage for all our clients. Updated daily, its design and ease of use allows all prospective tenants to view particulars with a single click revealing EPC's Google Street View and local information such as schools and other facilities. We have invested in some of Europe's leading property websites such as Rightmove, Prime Location and Zoopla. Prospective tenants can also register for email alerts and even have their own personal portfolio of favourites.

    New Media, Texting and the future

    We are constantly looking at the latest technology and social media forms an increasingly important part of the marketing process, particularly for the younger generation.

      • Seller Testimonial

        I cannot recommend Pocock & Shaw Ely more highly. Greg was helpful and responsive every step of the way, I felt supported throughout and I did not need to chase. Greg was courteous and respectful at all times. It is rare to find an Estate agent who goes that extra mile and that's exactly what Greg did. - Lisa
      • Seller Testimonial

        Great Estate Agents to deal with, a friend recommended them and I can confirm that they were well priced and do everything efficiently and professionally. I had a serious offer before my home went live and it was sold less than a week after it went to the market. Definitely client orientated, friendly and customer focused. Magnus was the  main agent I was dealing with but everyone was involved in the office. Jack and Elen   did the viewings and Linda put together the advert. Highly recommend using this   Estate Agent as they worked very hard for me and kept me well informed for the short time I was their client. Don't take my word for it give them all and ask for Magnus. -Thalia.
