Landlords: Let’s Do Business!

We Value Your Let

Whether you’re a first time landlord, looking to let your own home, considering buy-to-let, or already have a portfolio of investment properties, Sears offer a free, no-obligation market appraisal to let you know what’s possible in the current letting market.

An experienced member of our valuations team will provide you with an accurate market appraisal based on recent rentals, your property’s condition, its letting potential and current tenant demand.

We’re not pushy, we’re happy to discuss all options, how to get the best return, and how letting could best work for you. ...And again, there’s no obligation to put your property on the market. Simple.

How much rent could you achieve?

If you’re thinking of letting a property or simply want to see what rent you could achieve (or has the potential to achieve) Sears offer a free, no-obligation market appraisal.

Property Marketing

Visibility is key. Your tenant will likely first see your property on the internet, but we never underestimate the power of local marketing given that over 60% of us move within a 5 mile radius.

From our high street window display... bright, smart ‘for let’ boards... prominent press advertising... local canvassing... through to our ever-growing database of registered applicants who we email, telephone and mailshot... we’ve got it covered.

Plus... there’s our easy-to-use website, showcasing our current available properties, and we’re actively engaged in social media too: today’s tenants can follow us on Facebook and Twitter without needing to register, spreading the word further and faster about new properties to the market.

What sets us apart from other agents is that we offer the same high level of property presentation to our lettings as we do our sales properties. It engages our tenants and helps quickly secure lets.

We offer the following:

  • Quality photographs
  • Smart, sharp property brochures all with detailed floorplans
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) organised for you
  • Digital marketing across the UK‘s leading property portals,including rightmove.co.uk, primelocation.com and zoopla.co.uk; as well as our own website
  • Social media marketing across facebook and twitter
  • Print marketing in the property press plus local canvassing
  • Bright, smart boards which add a hotlink to your property using QR-code technology
  • prominent window advertising in our High Street property shop.
  • expert accompanied viewings - maximising your property’s benefits.
