Letting in five steps
- Choose your real estate specialist
- Set the right price
- Show your property off to its best advantage
- Do the paper work
You want a real estate specialist who knows your neighbourhood, which properties are to rent and which properties have been rented out recently. Someone who can reach many potential renters through a strong network of more than 190 offices. An expert who can give you useful tips for positioning your property better on the market, and whose expertise extends to holiday homes. A specialist with the largest client database in the world. This is exactly the kind of specialist you will find at CENTURY 21. If you are not yet convinced, just read our quality guarantee.
First of all, draw up a marketing plan, or even better: ask your CENTURY 21 advisor to draw up a marketing plan and discuss a realistic market price with you. If you let your property under its market value, you may find a tenant more quickly, but you will lose out on a part of your profit. If the price is too high, many prospective tenants will be put off, and you will lose both time and money. Thankfully, you can rely on your CENTURY 21 real estate specialist. They will take all the factors that determine the value of your property, such as location, condition, furnishings, price per square meter and accessibility, into close consideration.
Obviously, you want to make a good impression, but how? Ask advice from your CENTURY 21 real estate specialist. They can coordinate visits from prospective tenants and teach you the tricks of the trade.
- No matter what time of year, give your home a thorough spring clean.
- Cracks in the wall, stains on the floor, broken door bell? Repair everything as well as possible.
- Appeal to a broad target group by decorating your property in a neutral way
- Take care of your garden and driveway, as they are the first things that prospective buyers see.
- Ensure a pleasant atmosphere with flowers, lighting and a comfortable room temperature.
Two parties – supply and demand. In the middle is your CENTURY 21-specialist, who plays a pivotal role. They know the rules of the game and can help you to draw up a fixed-term rental contract. They will also take all recent changes in rental law into account, such as the compulsory inventory of fixtures and fittings, registration of the rental contract, deposit and insurance.
Congratulations, you have found a new tenant. Your CENTURY 21 consultant can now help you with all the formalities, such as drawing up a rental contract and the compulsory inventory of fittings and fixtures, registering the rental contract, the deposit and insurances. But is it time to say goodbye to CENTURY 21? No, of course not. Because we are still your real estate specialist, even after a new tenant for your property has been found. We can take care of managing your property and acting as a syndic.
