Why You Should Instruct an Agent on Movebubble

Why Your Agent Should Moving with Movebubble

No void periods. High-quality renters. Reliable agents. Three aspects that surely hold the most weight for landlords. After all, if you’re in the business of letting your home, making sure that you earn a pretty penny, have renters that look after the property, and an agent that has your back means you’ll sleep well at night.

Having a reliable agent is perhaps the most important component for a landlord, as the best ones make sure void periods are minimal and that renters come recommended. But with so many letting agents on the high street, not to mention a growing presence of online-only options, how can you be sure that you instruct the right one?

Drum roll please. The answer is... Movebubble! Why, you ask? Read on, and find out why Movebubble gives landlords the tools they need to make informed decisions about the best letting agents in their local market.

There’s Nothing Indecent About This Exposure

Eyes on the prize is the first thing you want when your property goes on the lettings market. There’s no point listing a rental if no one is going to see it. That’s why you need to instruct an agent that will make sure lots of people see your property. 

Of course there are some old-school property sites and the agent’s website, along with social media, which also has a role to play in the modern lettings game. But an agent should never limit their options, and having your property with an agency that advertises on Movebubble means access to an extra 250,000 professional renters.

And we’re not just talking any renters: Movebubble’s community consists of high-quality renters, top-level professionals and, most importantly, modern-day millennials, the largest pool of renters. In other words, if your agent isn’t on Movebubble, you’re missing out on exposure for your shiny rental pad.

Moving With the Times - The Tech Times

Let’s face it: the game has changed, and technology is seeping its way into every industry. The UK property market is no different, with those who embrace tech positioning themselves to gain a stronghold on the market.

Tech allows for better and faster services, and Movebubble empowers agents to answer renters’ queries quicker than anyone else (our agent’s average response time is five minutes!). Response times play a huge role in satisfying renters.

They can also chat with agents through our messaging service as and when they need to, while agents often answer enquiries and accept offers outside office hours. And trust us - the best agents always go that extra mile to put quality renters in properties.

Customer Service Extraordinaire

Being a letting agent involves plenty of people interaction, which means excelling when it comes to customer service. We’ve put together a little something on our Landlords Page that allows landlords to see just how good an agent is at their job.

How long it takes to respond to a query and the response rates are both viewable aspects that give you more insight into the quality of the agent you are thinking about instructing or have already instructed.

After all, who wants an agent that ignores their customers? The last thing you need is someone who takes a “meh” approach to letting your property. You deserve the best, so make sure you work with an agent that has a five-star rating on Movebubble.
