Advertising your HMO rooms can be a painful process but it doesn’t have to be. The biggest mistake most HMO landlords make is using the wrong marketing strategy for their property. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for advertising your HMO rooms.
It’s easy to see the appeal of letting agents. They take on the workload and you can just sit back and relax. Sounds like a nice life, right? Not exactly…
Letting agents aren’t specialists in HMOs. They might have more success when it comes to single lets, but the truth is, letting agents aren’t a great option for marketing HMOs.
Their prices are extortionate compared to online alternatives and, unfortunately, they won’t find you a better quality tenant. A lot of this is down to the fact that standard letting agents don’t know where to advertise to find the right type of HMO tenants.
So, if you shouldn’t use letting agents, what exactly should you do?
Specialist HMO marketing companies are the best option when it comes to advertising your property. They have bundles of experience in the HMO market and will find you higher quality tenants that actually want to stick around.
Want to know the best part? They’ll do it for less than half the price of a letting agent.
Where do I find a specialist HMO marketing company you ask? Right here. At SimplyTenant, they take the weight off of your shoulders and do all of the heavy lifting.
So it won’t be long before you can put your feet up!
