Steps to listing your property with QuickLets
As you develop your property portfolio, listing your Maltese property for rent is the next logical step. Doing so can be a long and stressful task if you wish to try and manage the process yourself. Approaching an Estate Agent will greatly assist in getting your property out on the market and you will be able to secure tenancy agreements much quicker. Registration is easy, however it still requires following certain steps to ensure that everything is done correctly.
You can get the ball rolling by first contacting an estate agent informing them of your intent to market your Maltese property for rent. QuickLets have branches across the Maltese islands covering everywhere from from Marsaxlokk to Gharb, and everything in between. Either pop in to say hello, or if you are taken up with other priorities, simply give us a call or contact us online. From here we can start to gain some insight into the details of the property and start setting you up on our system.
Preparation and Pizazz
It's generally understood that if you are approaching an Agent, you have already got the property setup and ready for tenants to view and potentially move in. Questions like ”is the property furnished or unfurnished?”, will need to be asked and the answers included in the listing. Try and understand the type of tenant you are looking to attract and this will guide you on the level of preparation required.
Look for any areas that need painting, and check everything looks good. A picture speaks a thousand words so you will need to brush up on your photography skills and capture your property in the most appealing way to entice viewers. As part of our service offering to our clients, we can happily arrange for one of our experienced staff to come and take the photos for you.
Setting the Price
The impartiality of an estate agent is critical at this stage. You see, some people are so emotionally invested in their property that they can often have a misguided understanding of its value and subsequently think it should be marketed higher.
Our QuickLets agents have an in-depth knowledge of current property trends, area history and knowledge of market value. With access to our extensive database, we can help guide you on the best price to list your property, get increased viewings and see it rented, all whilst remaining competitive in the Maltese property market.
All the boring stuff
