Cut-price landlords service extends listings to Zoopla portals
Thursday 16th August 2012
Online lettings business OpenRent is to expand its landlord service to include listing on Zoopla, FindAProperty and Primelocation as well as Rightmove – while at the same time offering free listings to all new customers.
The service was launched earlier this year by a team of landlords and internet specialists under the slogan ‘You do the viewings, we do everything else’.
The proposition includes advertising a landlord’s property on popular portals, running reference and background checks on potential tenants, and taking care of legal issues like tenancy deposits and contracts.
While the site has offered Rightmove listing from day one, the addition of Zoopla, FindaProperty and Primelocation means it can now claim near comprehensive coverage of searches for rental property. Co-founder Adam Hyslop said: “It’s been an exciting first few months for OpenRent. We’ve helped hundreds of landlords find tenants and fielded thousands of tenant enquiries on their behalf – but in between all of this we’ve found time to speak to our customers.
“The most popular request was that although Rightmove is the UK’s number one property portal, many landlords would like to be listed on the other major sites too.
“We also know that not all of our competitors aspire to the levels of customer service that we do, so we’re giving new customers the chance to use us once for free.
“Existing customers also now get an additional free listing for every new landlord they send our way.”
The service charges landlords just £20 for a tenant-find service, reference checks and processing the contract.
