Here at Oaklands Estates we have put together this short letting guide to help you navigate the process of letting out your property.
We will visit your property and carry out an in-depth assessment to determine the rental value that can be obtained. We do this by analysing comparable properties that have been recently let by ourselves as well as the wider market, considering factors such location, size of property, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, overall condition, parking, garden, furnishings and much more. We will then suggest ideas on how you could achieve an optimum rental value, which are there for you to consider. We always look to achieve optimum rent for our clients and will suggest a price we feel is optimistic as well a realistic.
