Questions from a buy to let newbie

Mark, I did send some questions to LettingSupermarket last night via their contact form on their website but I haven't had a response yet. Not a great start... but is there a better way to get in touch with them?... Read More

Judging demand for rent in an area with no current rentals

Oh ok, I just thought because they are an online letting agent then that meant no viewings and check in/out etc. Surely if they now have agents around the country then they're no longer an online only letting agent and their prices and services will start to become exactly the same as other non-online only letting agents? Their prices at the moment do seem to be a lot better than all of the local agents I've spoken to, but I guess I just have some reservations about using a company I've never heard of (other than recommendations from yourself: a shareholder in their company) and that have only recently started doing viewings and check ins themselves etc....

Yeah it is more of a nice family area than a student or young first time buyer area etc, so that makes sense. For some reason I hadn't considered that. I think maybe I'll just stick to the areas I know are popular for renting then - the only reason I was considering this area was because I thought if it is popular to live in and there's no rentals available there at the moment then it could be quite profitable if I got a few up for rent there... but sounds like that might not be the case and it might just take a long time to get a tenant...

I had been doing plenty of rightmove searches already, but like I said there is pretty much nothing available to rent in that area. I didn't tick the Let Agreed box so thanks for that tip - that has brought up a couple that I hadn't previously seen, but still not many. I think I'll just keep speaking to different estate agents and try to see what the general opinion of lettings in this area is... Read More
