Obviously the internet is a very important source to-day for people searching for a property to rent and we have had our own website for more than 15 years. However, our reputation and name is very well known in business and the property sector and therefore a lot of our enquiries come from 'word of mouth recommendations'.
Newspaper and other advertising is normally done on a week to week basis alternating between Lancashire and Yorkshire publications, magazines and journals. Other marketing tools used by our company are, Cinema Advertising, other digital advertising media, strap lines on public transport, placards on sports grounds and other venues, advertising within many public sector bases, personalised lifetime products, promotional gifts and fliers, inclusion on various media websites covering UK and abroad, all the major internet search engines and many more. We carry a register of 'waiting tenants' daily and enquiries come from every conceivable source from the UK and abroad.
There is never a shortage of waiting tenants but there is often a very wide choice of property for them to choose from and therefore they will be very specific in what they want. You will be competing in a fiercely competitive market but if your property is in a good area and in good order and marketed at a sensible rent, it will be taken. There is no average time limit, some properties are taken before they are even marketed on our computer and others stick around for a while, there is no hard and fast rule. If your property happens to come on the market when the right tenant or tenants are looking, you could be like many others who find their property is occupied immediately and continuously. But more often than not we offer a quick turnaround - as an average, properties taken onto our books, move quickly within a maximum time limit of a month. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY - in all our years of business, we have never experienced the 'tenant from hell'. Good screening and referencing is the key to successful letting.
We have in excess of 30 years experience before and during the formation of PATRICIA THOMAS QUALITY HOME RENTALS and the marketing of your property will be handled by a senior member of the company at all times.
