The buy-to-let market is bigger than ever and competition is fierce. High house prices mean more individuals, couples and families are choosing to rent rather than buy a home, and this means there are plenty of opportunities for buy-to-let landlords.
However, success doesn't depend solely on purchasing desirable property in attractive locations. It also comes down to how you market your buy-to-let homes and who you rent them to. The service you provide as a landlord while your tenants are in occupation is also important.
At Martin & Co, we can help you advertise your buy-to-let properties to the right people, making it easier to secure reliable and creditworthy tenants who will take care of your properties and pay their rent on time. We will also provide ongoing property management services throughout each tenancy.
Quality marketing is essential to attract quality tenants, and at Martin & Co we use a number of methods to ensure your buy-to-let properties are advertised in the right way. As well as eye-catching window cards in our nationwide offices, we also invest in regular newspaper advertisements in the local press.
Since 90 per cent of tenants begin their search for a rental property online, our website is also designed to attract high volumes of traffic. We strive to ensure that your buy-to-let properties are presented in a neat and informative way that will encourage tenants to make further enquires.
We also provide extensive listings on all the major internet property portals, so by registering your buy-to-let properties with Martin & Co, tenants will be able to find them even if they don't come directly to our site.
There are any number of letting agents serving the UK buy-to-let market. So what makes Martin & Co stand out? Well, unlike other agents whose primary focus is sales, we are dedicated solely to the lettings market.
We understand that you want to make a return on your buy-to-let investments and we recognise that not all landlords are the same. This is why we offer a tailored service solution designed to suit your needs.
Furthermore, while we benefit from the national strength of the Martin & Co brand, each of our UK letting agents are locally managed and have extensive knowledge of the buy-to-let market in your area, whether you have flats to rent in London or family homes to let in Wales.
For many buy-to-let landlords, the student market is a major area of focus. But it is important to gain a full understanding of the sector, as it often works in a very different way to the residential lettings market.
This is why Martin & Co has established Martin & Co Student Homes, which is a dedicated student lettings service that will help you find sensible student tenants for homes in university areas.
Whether you're new to the buy-to-let market, or you're an experienced landlord with a vast property portfolio, we can help you maximise your returns. We have more than 170 offices across the UK, so wherever you're based you'll find us in your area.
