It can be tempting to choose an agent based on price alone. This could be dangerous, as standards of service in the industry vary wildly. Even if you wanted to choose on price, this is hard because the headline management rates are usually not the end of the story.
If you see a very low headline rate, you can be sure that there will be other charges, as an agent will barely cover their overheads at this level. If that is not the case then you shouldn't expect much of the service, as they will unavoidably be cutting corners!
And what if you only want the agent to find a tenant? Choosing an agent for a tenant finding service on price alone is also a mistake. Extensive marketing costs money. A cut price service means your property is not getting the market exposure you need.
I have always said that although there are obviously costs involved in using one, the benefits of employing a good agent will always outweigh them:
One reason owners will decide to self-let rather than use an agent is not to save money but because they've had a bad experience with an agent. In fact choosing a bad agent can be very damaging, if they provide an unsuitable lease, give bad advice on legislation or don't take action when things go wrong.
So take care in choosing the right agent and you'll significantly reduce the risk of things going wrong in the future.
These are some of the things to look for in a good agent:
Using an agent can save you money as well as time but choosing the wrong agent is a mistake which has cost many landlords dearly. Look for things like professional accreditation and customer testimonials to give yourself confidence that your agent will live up to their promises.
