Hybrid agent easyProperty is expanding into lettings.
The new service, which launched yesterday, has two new packages: easy Let and easy Let Plus.
easy Let is a self-serve model that allows a landlord to take the lead to find a tenant for their property. Costing £99 including VAT, landlords will have an advert on Rightmove and the use of easyProperty’s dashboard to manage enquiries, viewings and offers.
Landlords have the option to upgrade to the easy Let Plus tenant-find service, where prices range from £399 to £499 including VAT, dependent on postcode.
With this option, landlords will be visited by their local property professional to discuss the marketing of the property to find a tenant at the best price. It also includes professional advert creation, including floorplans, photos and property description, a To Let board, a tenancy agreement and deposit protection scheme registration.
It also includes two references checks and ‘right to rent’ checks on the tenants.
The new options also offer landlords the option to upgrade to the core brand of the licensee – generally, a Fine & Country or Guild agent – although easyProperty licences are now being offered to other agents.
easyProperty head of operations Adam Day said: “We have been planning our expansion into lettings for some time, and it is very exciting to launch our new range of packages to help landlords.
“I am confident that this will give landlords more freedom to choose how much work they want to do to attract the right tenant and how much they want to leave to professionals.
“It is also going to hugely benefit our licensees as they generate new lettings business both for easyProperty and their core brand.”
