We Specialise In Helping A Wide Range Of Landlords…
Letting property is your full time job and your primary source of income.
Average number of properties owned are between 2 and 4 but there is a percentage of you of that have 21+ properties in your portfolio! You expect fast response times and understand that voids and quality tenants are key.
Property is your secondary source of income and you see this as a long term investment.
Average number of properties owned, over half of you have between 2 and 4 properties. Quite a number live more than 5 miles from their investments so your local knowledge is key to you.
You are letting out a property due to a change in your circumstances, such as a new job or moving in with a partner. Over 50% of you tend to prefer their property to be managed. Value for money and being local to the property is important to you.
You have intentionally became a landlord and are letting out your first property.
You are probably looking to build a portfolio despite your inexperience and see property as a sound investment. Nearly half live within 5 miles of their property. You tend to want some insight on the local property market, so local knowledge is key to you in order to make further investment in the property market. Staff expertise is essential or important to you when picking your agent.
Speed and Experience
I have used Rochills Estate Agents for the last three years to secure tenants for several of my properties. The customer service is fantastic and I am always kept fully up to date with all progress and viewing feedback. The advert for my property goes up within an hour and viewings tend to follow very shortly after.
The speed in which my home is let never fails to astound me, I think two weeks is the longest that it has taken and that was due mostly to indecision by tenants and therefore there was nothing Rochills could do to speed this up. Also I obtain excellent advice about the property industry and always find their property blog www.waltonpropertyblog.com very informative.
I would recommend Rochills to anyone looking for hassle free property management or lettings, as a Landlord I am reassured that the team at Rochills are looking after me and my property as they would their own homes.Mr Michael Chan
Quality Tenants and maximising my investment
I have let my properties with Rochills over the last ten years and have had an excellent experience with them.
They find tenants very quickly and do not comprise on the quality of tenants. They use their landlord experience in vetting the tenants and I feel that I can trust their judgement.
Furthermore their systems and processes and staff are excellent. I feel confident that my property is in safe hands and looked after by professionals. I would highly recommend Rochills.Mr Vince Loggia
