New Year, New Home?

New Year, New Home?

If you’re thinking of putting your home on the sales market, how about adding a little finesse to give it that kerb appeal. If you want a potential buyer to fall in love with your property consider cleaning out gutters, refreshing the paintwork, clearing weeds or as they say anything that’s broken, fix it!

Buy-to-let landlords

If you’re buying, with the extension of stamp duty plus other benefits, now has never been a better time to buy a home or that buy-to-let investment.

According to the National Landlord’s Association there are more lenders and products now than there have been in the last 10 years, and a healthy competition is playing out amongst them which means there are some excellent deals for buy-to-let clients.

What our landlords say

We recently sent out a few questions to the landlord’s of Pick My Pad which they kindly responded to . This is what was discussed…

  1. I am interested to know what made you buy and rent in the particular area you have chosen?
  2. What advice could you give to prospective landlords?
  3. How do you feel Pick My Pad helped you in the process and would you recommend us to prospective vendors and landlords?

A long-standing landlord’s replied…

I buy to rent in Little Hulton, Salford because the property prices are cheaper than central Salford and Manchester and the rental yields are excellent. I would recommend other landlords use a reputable agent such as Pick My Pad, especially if they are going to be taking on Housing Benefit / Universal Credit tenants. I would also recommend landlords have the correct insurance and keep up with ever-changing regulations such as electrical safety checks. Being a member of NRLA to ensure you keep up with all landlords’ requirements is advisable. Pick My Pad have been an excellent agent for me and looked after my interests. Communication is good and any issues are dealt with quickly.

With the trust that has been built throughout our company and wonderful hard working staff actually enjoying working with each other looking positively at the days and future ahead. Plus always remember problems are only problems if you let them be problems. There is always a way around things to find a solution.

Once again thank you for letting us do the work we love doing and the enjoyment we get out of helping you.
