commonly asked questions by landlords

With an ever changing industry and ever changing trends there are always going to be questions for your letting agent, i have highlighted some of the more frequent ones in this article.

One of the most common questions I get asked by Landlords is whether they should offer there property as fully or part furnished. My Answer to this question changes depending on the property style & location.

If we were referring to a one bedroom apartment in the heart of Stockport Exchange i may lean towards a furnished option, The type of tenants attracted to this style of property is likely to be a young professional who perhaps hasn’t rented before, having a furnished property would mean lower out goings initially and perhaps a quicker let.

If it were a three bedroom semi i would tend to advise to go for an unfurnished property as you are likely going to attract a small family who have lived privately elsewhere prior to there next let. They have likely accumulated furniture over this period and in most cases would like to bring this furniture with them.

Each let is different and each landlord has a different approach, if you’d like further advice on anything buy to let related call me on; 0161 474 8668.
