Initial steps – Property Valuation

  • Advice on rental value and periodic revision.  With expert knowledge of the variances in the market, we can assess your property’s value on a yearly basis, advising you as to any increase that is due.
  • We can offer recommendations for you on the interior and exterior with regards to appealing to a particular type of tenant.  Advice is given on décor, fixtures, fittings, furnishings and equipment that should be included in the property.

Advertising and marketing the property through

  • Online property portals
  • Window space
  • Property lists
  • Local papers
  • Associated companies
  • Distributed throughout our list of prospective tenants

Accompanied viewings with prospective tenants.
