OpenRent Case Studies and Testimonials August 2017 William A

Customer Story: William A

After redeveloping old farm buildings into a portfolio of 18 rented properties, William was faced with spending tens of thousands just to find tenants for his new properties.

With our £49 Ultimate Advertising plan, we helped William let two of his properties in under a week, saving him over £7,000 compared to his previous agents!

William’s Story

“I had two properties to rent, with the first being added to OpenRent and the plan being to add the second a week later. Once viewings began on my first property, it created interest for my second, and both were rented in less than a week.

“I’ve always used high street agents, and did so with these properties but my viewings came through OpenRent and so did my tenants. Through OpenRent, we have no agents finder’s fee and no agent expecting a management fee.

“Our saving on this property is well over £2,000 for the management fees alone. Our tenants have taken a three-year agreement with us, and with no finder’s or management fees to pay, we have saved over £7,000.

“It’s allowed me to be flexible with my rent should there be a need. It has provided a saving which we reinvest back into our properties as opposed to a high street agent.

Interest at the Touch of a Button

“As a first-timer, a free trial encouraged me to use OpenRent. I was amazed how easy it was. I was able to amend my description and add more photos. I was impressed at just how professional my advert became at the touch of a button.

“Experience of high street agents has shown that not all viewings show up. With OpenRent, prospective tenants contacted OpenRent, booked viewings and in our case, arrived to view the same day.

“I had hoped for interest within a few days and then viewings after five, but the first call came the next day and so did my first viewing.

“With 18 rented properties, OpenRent have been the quickest to advertise with. Prompt replies to my questions are credit to the OpenRent team and their management in linking the landlord to the potential tenant. Their professionalism puts both parties at ease.”
