Renting out your property during a pandemic
It's not a surprise that the coronavirus outbreak disrupts every industry across the globe - and the property market is certainly no exception. If you're a landlord looking to rent out a property, these can be uncertain times. Although staying at home guidelines are softening now, you may wonder how to proceed with your lettings, going forward.
Naturally, this has prompted us to re-think the way we do things. As a letting agency that is always responding to the ebb and flow of the market, we've adapted our entire service to manage the situation and work towards a positive approach for our staff making sure it's business as usual. As much as we want to keep things running smoothly, we also want to make sure the process of letting out your property safe and hassle-free, for you and your prospective tenant. Safety is our priority, and we think it's best to delay our office opening for customers, although our staff man the office. We hope to be able to soon open doors for you to meet with us personally. So, we've embraced virtual technology as part of our routine of valuing and letting property, whilst physical viewings can be done after the initial stage of shortlisting your favourite property.
With three simple steps, it's easier than you might think.
Pick up the phone (01223 322277)
It all starts with us getting acquainted. A face to face meeting may not be advisable yet. However, we're always at the other end of the phone. Whilst video calling or zoom meetings are also welcome, anything that suits you can work for us too!
Jeremy Liming (our Director), will happily explain the process and answer any questions you might have.
Virtual valuations work great
Firstly, we'll need to conduct a virtual property valuation to ensure we follow the social distancing measures whilst the lettings process.
The valuation can be done in real-time via video call on your phone, laptop, or tablet using Zoom – our preferred video calling service.
Or, you can simply take videos, covering both the inside and outside to give us a feel for the condition of your property.
Alongside the virtual tour, we'll also take the location, demand, and market knowledge into consideration to give the most up-to-date valuation.
Our virtual property valuations are flexible, easy, and quick – and they're made to work around your lifestyle – however busy it may be.
Showing off your property the virtual way
Following our virtual valuation, a designated team member can show your property to prospective tenants using Zoom video conferencing. With the softened government guidelines, property viewings are slowly moving to conventional physical ways, but with strict safety measures in place. In the light of our current situation, as responsible lettings agents of our community, we recommend physical viewings once the virtual viewing has taken place; as a final step to the lettings process.
It's that simple. So if you're thinking of letting your property out, let us.
At Cambridge property lettings, we believe in giving you a service that exceeds your expectations. If you would prefer to book a valuation rather than pick up the phone, you can easily do so through our website at https://www.cambridgepropertylettings.co.uk/valuation.
