April 21, 2017 Landlords

Daisy are number 1 agents on Rightmove – we LET more property than any other agents locally over the last 12 months!

Number 1 out of 237 agents

At Daisy Lets and Sales we are delighted to have come at the very top of the list for Let property over the past 12 months. This live data from Rightmove Intel also makes for some interesting observations. There were four agencies that took on more property than us over the same period; however, when you drill down into their statistics you glean some interesting facts. The agent that took the most instructions, took on 58% more property than we did BUT only found tenants for 10% of them and so came 23rd on the list. I’m guessing that this means that they had a lot of frustrated landlords on their books! Overall, we let 27% more property than this agency

The second agent on the list is an online only agency that charges an upfront fee and expects landlords do their own viewings. This resulted in only 2.3% of their properties being LET in the last 12 months, not a great conversion rate! That’s a lot of landlords actually out of pocket and left with no tenants to show for it. The third agency on the list for the most instructions are nowhere to be found on the list of ‘let” properties at all. I can only assume that they didn’t let a single property they took on!

Another interesting observation from Rightmove statistics is that the local agents that successfully Let the most property don’t come near the top of the list for online views, which suggests that the best agents use other methods to find tenants rather than simply relying on advertising on the big portals. At Daisy Lets & Sales we always have a live, current database of 100’s of tenants along with a constant stream of new tenants registering via our website and actively looking for property. We also manage the process carefully once tenants have been found to make sure everyone is happy and ensure that the letting of the property moves smoothly to completion.

We are not allowed to show who the agents are on the data for obvious reasons, but I can say that there are two well known local agents that take on an awful lot of property within our patch but don’t actually let much of it.

The moral of this post? Cheap, online agents and the most visible High Street agents that might look good at first glance and who come up with “patter” and ambitious pricing, are certainly not the best choice to get your property filled – and your rent coming in – and that’s a fact backed up by Rightmove data.
