Why Lettings Software is Essential for Start-Ups

There's never been a better time to get into the real estate market.

The average UK property value reached a record-breaking £262,954 this year, according to the Halifax August 2021 House Price Index, and the demand for lettings is only increasing. With an acute shortage in rental properties compared to the demand for lettings, the rental value has increased by 1.2% in the 12 months leading to July 2021. With this, the pressure on lettings and estate agents is higher as the real estate market has become increasingly competitive.

As a start-up or a small agency, you have the edge on your large estate agent competitors. Landlords have been leaning to small sales and lettings agencies as opposed to larger multi-branch estate agencies for their private rental needs because of their ability to provide local information, bespoke service and expertise tailored to your area.

If you're in the process of starting your own agency, make sure you read our guide on how to set up an estate agency and download our free ebook for the top tips you'll need to get started. 

Landlords have come to expect more and more from their lettings agency due to the competitive market, and tenants expect better communication from their agent. Letting agency software can transform your small agency's ability to meet the increasing demands and expectations of your clients.

Using a CRM solution ensures client satisfaction by streamlining your day-to-day interactions and contributes to building the reputation of your start-up letting and sales business. 

Happy tenants + happy landlords = happy agents.
