Free gifts - Student letting in Bristol from Letwithease

Students, choose from a fantastic range of free gifts with selected student accommodation

 

We've had a really busy few months and the majority of our 2011 academic year student properties are now fully let. Recently however, we've taken on several new ones so there's still a really good variety of 3, 4 and 5+ bedroom houses available in key student locations such as Horfield and Fishponds. We pride ourselves on having some of the highest quality student accommodation in Bristol on our books and we're committed to providing the highest standard of service to our student tenants. To make things even better, we've bought in some exceptional incentive offers for student tenants who choose to take their student housing in Bristol through Letwithease.

 

We've got some excellent free gifts to give away to those who decide to take a property after 15th May 2011. Student tenants can choose their gift from a list of goodies including Plasma TVs, games consoles, fragrances and perfumes, tablet computers per house mate, events like paint balling and go carting, up to £400 cash back and more!

Our guarantees to offer the most exceptional services at the most competitive rates 

Our guarantees to offer the best service

We've been having a look around at our competitors services to ensure we're delivering the most competitive rates in the industry. Infact, we've been so surprised by some of the inflated fees being commanded out there that we've come up with the following guarantees, our way to truly demonstrate our confidence in our services, our abilities and our fees. Typically we're 30% cheaper than the majority of Bristol letting agents and in a couple of cases were an incredible 70% cheaper. Are you overpaying for your letting and management requirements?

 

We're offering the following two guarantees; firstly, we guarantee to let your property faster than any other agent. If we don't, we'll offer you a £100.00 discount against future services. Secondly, we're offering a price match guarantee that if you were to find a comparable service from our competitors at a cheaper rate, we would not only match their rates but give you an extra £50.00 cash back too.

 

Simply, we're incredibly confident that not only can no other agent come close to us in offering exceptional value, we're also sure we’re the most competent and able agent when it comes to letting your property quickly and efficiently.

Landlord Expo

 

Statistics show we are much faster at letting than our competitors in Bristol

It’s official! According to statistics, on average Letwithease.com are a staggering 4.3 x faster at letting property than our competitors in Bristol. Simply this means if you're a landlord with property in Bristol by instructing us you'll be earning rental income sooner.

 

This claim is derived from stats from Insight, a property industry analytical service which uses data from two of the UK's biggest internet property portals; Findaproperty.co.uk and Primelocation.com. The statistic is based on the average number of days we list property for on those two websites, in comparison to the average number of days other letting agents do so in the following postcodes: BS1, BS2, BS3, BS4, BS5, BS6, BS7, BS8, BS9, BS16.

 

So if you're a landlord who wants to earn rental income sooner and minimise your void periods, get in touch with us today.

Going Round the Houses

September 2009

 

Letwithease.com launches Going Round the Houses website

Letwithease.com has launched its new service for the property inventory market in Bristol. Going Round the Houses supplies property inventories, schedule of condition reports, 'check-ins', 'check-outs' and periodic inspections to landlords, agents, housing associations, local authorities & property professionals. The new advanced website features a client log in utility where clients can access their inventories and property specifications in real time along with user information and invoices. The aim of the separate website and identity is to make the brand and services accessible to all, even those who traditionally do not require or employ letting agent services. It also identifies itself as a neutral unbiased assessment of your property.

 

Following on from our achievement in gaining Association of Professional Inventory Providers (APIP) accreditation, We hope Goingroundthehouses will fulfil its requirements to fill what is a gaping whole in the market place for high quality inventory services in Bristol.

Letwithease.com announces significant IT systems investment

Letwithease.com today announced the investment of a £59K project to custom build and deploy a state of the art software system written specifically to meet the requirements of a letting specialist.

The system is being built exclusively for Letwithease.com by a specialist IT company and Letwithease customers will instantly reap benefit in the way of improved levels of service delivered by the highest level of customer relationship software used anywhere in any industry. Commercial Director Tom Boothroyd explains more about the new systems and their importance.

"The new system is going to be custom built with specific input from the Directors and staff. Unlike other industry specific software it will allow us to customise everything and seamlessly integrate into our existing procedures and systems, consequently we'll be getting a real advantage to our competitors. It will automate the vast majority of what we do and free up a significant amount of staff's time and resources, enabling them to offer more dedicated and personal support to our customers."

The investment marks a significant step forward for the company in the current economic climate and demonstrates the commitment and ambitions of those involved. Letwithease will become one of a very select few in the UK within the property industry to have such powerful IT capabilities available.

Association of Professional Inventory Providers

May 2009

 

Letwithease.com becomes accredited member of APIP

With changes in legislation the spotlight is now firmly on the inventory processes. Recent tenancy deposit scheme cases have highlighted the need for the clear concise inventory to protect the landlord. Membership to the Association of Professional Inventory Providers demonstrates to landlords and tenants that Letwithease.com has achieved accreditation in their profession and has met the industry best practice standards. As a member, we have proved that we have considerable experience in producing inventories prior to taking the test. Letwithease.com displaying the APIP logo should be regarded as a competent professional within the property industry.

New feature - Search by map!

Example of search by map showing flats in Redland

We're delighted to incorporate a new feature to our website which will make it even easier for prospective tenants to find properties on Letwithease.com

 

The new feature allows users to search for properties using the normal criteria such as number of bedrooms and maximum rental price but rather than listing the properties in price order places them on an interactive map. This is an invaluable tool for those looking to be close to a certain part of Bristol, particularly migrating professionals or students who may not be overly familiar with the area.

 

Give it a go now yourself using the box to the left, or alternatively click the link below to see all of our properties currently available on the map.

Offering landlords maximum exposure

Letwithease.com offers landlords an exceptionally fast letting service. We advertise your property on the UK's biggest property portals which ensures you'll receive maximum exposure!

In our commitment to offer the quickest & most effective property rental services to landlords, we now advertise all properties to the UK's biggest and best viewed property portals. This ensures maximum exposure and ensures a speedy letting process.

 

Your property will be listed on the top websites listed above plus many more. Interest in your property will also be generated from other avenues such as 'To Let' boards, tenants browsing our shop, the local press, from exposure through directories such as Yellow Pages & 118 services, from targeted banner and text web advertising such as on home.co.uk & propertyfinder.com right through to our biggest most positive marketing tool of all, word of mouth.

We place a lot of emphasis on letting properties quickly. An empty property is bad news for everyone. On occasions when we take on good quality accommodation we let it within a matter of hours thanks to the thousands of tenants that we have on the Letwithease.com database who've registered for property updates.

 

There are further benefits from instructing Letwithease.com: we're extremely competitively priced, we offer a thorough and comprehensive service, and our knowledge base within the lettings industry is second to none. It's no surprise therefore that our list of satisfied landlord clients is expanding at such a phenomenal rate.

 

We provide all this as standard for each service we offer and there is no contract to sign or money to pay unless we perform and fulfil our obligation to find you suitable tenants for your property. We relish the opportunity to let your property 'multi-agency', which means we welcome you instructing other letting agents at the same time as us as generally it just goes to prove our superiority in the market place. Be very wary of agencies that demand a payment before they do anything or insist you exclusively let your property with them as often it will only end up costing you money and wasted time finding a tenant.

Online virtual tours

We're delighted to be the first in the country to offer online streaming video virtual tours. They're a completely unique way of showing properties effectively online. These tours offer significant improvements over the traditional photographic panoramic tours which you may be familiar with. The existing virtual tours are taken from a single point in the room and often look distorted and fail to give a realistic portrayal of the true size and dimensions of the property. Not only that but they take a considerable time and therefore money to create.

 

Our streaming video tours take advantage of the huge advancements made with high speed broadband internet connections. Over 98% of web users connecting to Letwithease.com are using a fast cable or DSL connection. The tours accurately depict and give prospective tenants a genuine feel for the property. They also drastically reduce wasted viewings and thus enable us to reduce our overheads. This is reflected in the fact we offer some of the most competitive rates within the industry to landlords.

 

There's no extra fee to pay for our virtual tours, they're included as standard in the services we perform. It's an example from many of how we're revolutionising the lettings industry with our unique services taking full advantage of the shift from traditional paper advertising to new media alternatives. Try it out using the example above.
