Reap the re­wards of rental

Evening Express (City Final) - Home Life - - FAMILY LIVING -

Aberdeen is in a unique po­si­tion in the UK when it comes to the prop­erty mar­ket. A steady stream of pro­fes­sion­als come from all over the world ev­ery year, to work in the North-east. And what’s more, hav­ing two thriv­ing uni­ver­si­ties and a busy col­lege means this city has an in­flux of stu­dents all-year-round. That means a con­stant de­mand for prop­er­ties for lease – and that’s where you could step in. If you are in­ter­ested in find­ing out about the ben­e­fits of leas­ing out a prop­erty of your own, then make an ap­point­ment to see a leas­ing agent. They will be able to ad­vise you on ex­actly what is re­quired to get your place on the rental mar­ket. And best of all, they do all the work – leav­ing you sim­ply to reap the re­wards. Choos­ing to rent out your prop­erty us­ing an agency means plac­ing all the re­spon­si­bil­ity in the hands of ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als. The North-east is home to many good leas­ing agen­cies with a range of prop­er­ties on their books. So whether yours is a big house in the coun­try, or a cosy flat in the city, they will be able to give you the ex­pert ser­vice you need. They can rec­om­mend how much rent you should charge, to en­sure you get the best pos­si­ble re­turn on your in­vest­ment. They will ad­ver­tise your prop­erty, source your ten­ants, and vet them us­ing ref­er­ences to make sure they are suit­able. Be­fore they move in, the agency will or­gan­ise for an in­ven­tory to be done – so they can keep track of all your fur­nish­ings and the con­di­tion they are in. The agency will col­lect the rent ev­ery month and carry out prop­erty in­spec­tions at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals. And if you need any main­te­nance work, they will ar­range for it to be car­ried out to their stan­dards. It will give you peace of mind to know that your prop­erty is be­ing looked af­ter by pro­fes­sion­als.
