At Next Step Estates we are delighted to present to you our overview of this charming property on Inglemere Road. It is a great example of how we represent clients abroad. In fact, we have a very strong database of overseas investors.

Being a landlord can be stressful at times. This is more pronounced when your rental property is across an ocean. On this occasion the landlord was looking for a new agency in the Tooting/Mitcham area to let her property. She had been disappointed with her previous letting experience for the property and wanted a change. She instructed a number of agencies to ensure that this time her expectations were met. Next Step were delighted to be the agency she ended up instructing and we are pleased to say we didn’t let her down.

Prior to instruction we viewed the property, then worked on a proposal that was tailormade to the landlord’s requirements. In the proposal we set out our strategy for how we would achieve the best price possible for her property. The landlord’s initial response was encouraging:

“Hello again Asad. Thank you for your patience. I have now read through your proposal again and I must say it looks very professional and very impressive.”

Next Step were handed the keys to the property on 21 January and after respectfully liaising with the current tenants and taking professional photographs, video for a virtual tour and floorplans, the property was launched to market on 25 January.

We worked to our strategy of having a “soft” launch where we contacted our database of registered applicants who fit the demographic profile of those who would find this an ideal home (professional sharers or a family). We immediately started booking in viewings.

Next Step promises to go the extra mile when it comes to viewings. We will create an experience that suits you and your property. Flexibility is key. It is not unusual for us to conduct open home viewings and ensure that your property is being shown in the best light. We promise to ensure people take their time and do not rush people out. If someone shows up late to an open home, we stay open. At Next Step we do what we can to get you the best applicant possible.

We also marketed the property on the usual online channels and our website. On our website were nine high resolution images with the virtual tour and floorplan. All marketing services were (as always) included as standard in our services.

Only ten days later we presented the landlord with not one, but three, excellent offers.

Next Step also provided an exceptional service to the tenancy applicants. It is important that they too are treated with courtesy and respect. Afterall, they are about to make a big investment with your property so starting on the “right foot” is the best way to ensure a good relationship going forward.

Our service to these tenants was applauded and we received the following praise when they moved in:

“Awesome! From the start until we got the property, [the] Next Step agent Asad has been helpful and makes you welcome… he makes sure that it’s going [in] the right direction. Approachable and consistent in doing his job as a great agent. Thank you Next Step.”
