When it comes to selling your property, there are many factors to consider. Your real estate agency’s management portfolio might not be your top consideration, but it should certainly be taken into account.
Here are some of the ways their landlord portfolio can be beneficial to you as a seller:
The advantages of a full-service agency
There are many benefits to working with a full-service real estate agency who cover both rentals and sales. While you may be tempted to go with a hybrid real estate agency, their offerings are slimmer than what a full-service agency can bring to the table. When it comes to dealing with potentially the biggest investment you’ll have, it doesn’t pay to cut corners.
Bigger is better when it comes to databases
The number of landlords listed on a database is important; not because they’re rivals for your buyers, but because they might be interested in becoming the owner of your property too. Some investors will be looking to branch out and add another property to their portfolios, so obviously the larger the group you’re able to directly target, the more likely the chance is that you’ll find a buyer. Here at Chadwick we look after both sales and rentals, which means our database is large and diverse, and we keep them in the loop about properties we think they may like, so you’ll have more options available to you.
Tapping into the rental market
As we are involved in many different facets of real estate, we have direct contact with renters as well as landlords. The rental market may not seem relevant to your needs as a seller, but it does provide a back-up option to tap into should your property take longer to sell than you’d hoped for and you’re yet to find your ideal buyer. Don’t settle, but don’t lose out on money either – this is where having renters to choose from comes in handy. And when the time – or property – is right, renters often become buyers too.
Our contacts extend beyond landlords and renters
As we have a property management team looking after day-today maintenance on our rental properties, we’re also connected with an endless supply of reputable tradespeople, saving you from the hassle of having to shop around and chase up quotes. We can help you sort out any niggling maintenance you need done ahead of the sale, so there’s one more thing gone from your to-do list.
So if you’re thinking of selling, don’t discount the added value a full-service real estate agency can bring to your sale. Contact our team today to find out more about how Chadwick can help you.
