1. ValuationRent your property for the right value
Rental prices are always changing. Aiming too low or too high can mean you miss out on valuable opportunities. We will provide an accurate rental valuation up to date with the current rental market ensuring quick rental and the perfect matching tenant.
No need to waste time with approximate figures or inaccurate valuations. We advise an honest, accurate figure to get the property rented within the relevant timeframe for the best possible price.
2. PreparationFirst impressions make a difference
Preparing your property for rental without the need for large investment is possible. For example, cleaning communal entrances provides a positive impression from the very first moment of entering the building. Removing clutter from rooms will help living spaces feel larger. Matching towel sets in the bathroom gives a sense of order.
As a final touch, professional photography helps present the property online. This is included within our expat rental assistance along with 360 degree photos and a video tour.
We also advise on how to best complete your to-do list regarding the legalities and formalities of renting out your property. The process can be easy with our expert guidance.
