    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
    image cannot be displayed
    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.

    At Harrington's we value our tenants as much as our landlords. Our friendly and approachable team are here to help you find your next home and support a stress free tenancy.

    We take into consideration your requirements and keep in regular contact with you. We will update you when any new properties become available whether it be a flat to rent in Hove or a house to rent in Brighton.

    We understand most tenants prefer an unfurnished property. Bringing their own furniture really helps to put their own stamp on it. However, some of our properties also come part and fully furnished.

    We manage a wide range of properties from studio flats through to large residential houses. If you cannot find what you are looking for straight away why not register your details on our home page. New properties are added to the market regularly. We will always try to accommodate what you are looking for and match you with the perfect property.

    Before looking for a new home, it is important you are sure about the area you want to live. Think about what you would like close to you, train station, pubs, restaurants, the beach or bus stops. If you're not familiar with the area we will be happy to assist you.

    We have included a new feature on our website for council tax to see what band each property falls into. This enables you to see how much the council tax would be on a monthly or annual basis. This can be found at the bottom of each property description.

    We also provide the distance to the nearest train station, school and supermarket. We hope this will be useful and help make your search easier.

  • paragraph


    As an agency we ask all tenants regardless of their earnings to provide a UK homeowner as a guarantor. This provides our landlord with security ensuring the rent will be paid on time and in full.

    We understand that providing a guarantor doesn't suit everyone. However, we have found over the past 25 years that this system is the most secure way to ensure our landlords receive the rent payments each month on time. We do not carry out any form of referencing for most of our properties.

    Alternatively, some of our landlords are happy to accept 6 or 12 months' rent in advance. This is instead of providing a guarantor and is at the landlord discretion.

      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!

      Harringtons let out two properties for me this year. They were very professional, achieved good rents and were a pleasure to work with throughout the process.

      Thank you for your review and I'm glad we could help
      I have nothing but praise for the Harringtons team. From organising the viewing to moving in and beyond they have been a kind, attentive team who are respectful and responsive. I live by myself and I find it very reassuring that they are really fantastic. I have had a really tricky experience with a previous letting agency. But my experience with Harringtons has been a new start, a breath of fresh air and really lovely. On the day I moved in, even picking up the keys and being handed the lovely welcome box added so much to the experience and so thoughtful. They have been patient and kind with all my emails, queries and really eased my anxiety in moving after such a horrible time this year. I could go on and on. But truly thank you. I have recommended them to several people I know may be looking to move next year.

      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."
