How to rent like a pro!

Looking to rent property across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch can be a daunting task! But from the experts, we have compiled a list of things to check and have ready!

We appreciate that just booking a viewing can be some small victory, but being prepared to answer the essential questions will help stand you above other viewers!

  • Most agents will have an income multiplier of 32 times to 36 times the monthly rent (For example, if the property is advertised for £795.00 PCM, this means at 32 times your income before tax is £25,440. Knowing your gross salary straight away really does help. We offer a free and simple affordability calculator which will provide you with a maximum budget. Try it out Rent affordability calculator
  • Polite and courteous, renting a home has always been people’s business and acting accordingly helps support your application. 
  • Ask the question. have you got any other properties coming available? Getting your foot through the door before it goes on the market is a win-win for both agents, tenants, and landlords.
  • We understand this may be difficult for morning people; one of the best times to send a viewing request or enquiry is 1st thing in the morning.
  • When sending an enquiry through one of the portals, make sure to leave a message outlining income and number of adults.
  • Set up a Rightmove & Zoopla account with 24-hour alert set up; this will automatically send you every new property to the market!

We hope this information will help you in your property search!
