Why choose Venture Properties?
  • paragraph

    Venture Properties is based throughout County Durham with offices in Darlington, Chester-le-Street, Crook, Durham City and Bishop Auckland and have a detailed knowledge of the rental market in the towns and the surrounding areas. We offer a variety of management packages to suit individual landlords' requirements from simply finding the right tenant to full property management with rental guarantee insurance. We can also tailor make a package that suits you.

    We will only ask for payment on results. Venture Properties will market your property in a professional manner with a full description of its features and numerous internal photographs taken with wide-angled professional camera equipment. This is an area too often neglected.

    We do this because we listen to feedback from our tenants and they appreciate details of properties not being presented in the usual 'bullet point' fashion with one photograph of the outside of the property.

    We don't wait for the phone to ring and spend a lot of time working on, and updating, our mailing lists, matching properties with potential tenants and arranging viewings. All of the work we undertake from engaging with tenants to doing viewings and managing your accounts is done in one place.

    Clients choosing our fully managed services will have a property manager allocated to them for the duration of the tenancy. One telephone number, one email address and one point of contact for everything.
