Each tenant moving into a property is presented with a complimentary bag for life, packed with move-in day essentials. These little touches go a long way in maintaining our position as the preferred local lettings specialist.
We pride ourselves on the marketing of your property and importantly understand that this goes hand in hand with the calibre of tenant we attract and the rents we achieve. Whilst we encourage full marketing of all properties some of our clients require ‘soft’ marketing which means properties are not advertised through the usual channels.
The World Wide Web is now very much a vital part of the property market. Over 83% of the UK has access to the internet, not to mention those from overseas. Simon Clarke have recognised this and we have invested in our website and mobile site to facilitate those people who would prefer to find their next home over the internet, with easy access 24/7. As well as a fresh modern design, we pride ourselves on the fact that our website is updated daily.
Our website offers every property the opportunity to be advertised with a selection of colour internal and external photographs with full description. Also provided is a map locator for easy reference, proximity to the nearest tube and train stations and details of the council tax band. Another useful feature which appears on our website is the 'report a repair' facility. This is aimed at tenants that are in properties managed by Simon Clarke. This facility enables a tenant of a managed property to report any problems or maintenance issues that they are experiencing at the property, this will be sent directly to our dedicated management department by email.
As well as large investment in the development of our website, we are also represented on some of the UK's largest and most popular property websites, these include Zoopla, RightMove & Prime Location. These major property websites receive millions of visitors between them each month, therefore, giving your property the maximum exposure.
