Will a 'To Let' board get my property let quicker?

Question

I have an empty property on a busy street. I’m fairly sure it will let quite quickly of its own accord – but I am keen to get a tenant in as soon as possible. Will adding a ‘To Let’ board help?

Answer

It really depends on the type of property you’ve got, and where it is located. If your property is located on a busy street with lots of footfall, it can really heighten awareness. Being close to a main road allows you to directly market your property to thousands of drivers every day, all of whom are likely to use the route on a daily basis – all potential tenants just waiting to be marketed to!

Most people will have online alerts set up for properties in the areas that they are looking to move to, but a board can give you property the added edge, and spark recognition when a Rightmove or Zoopla email pings into their inbox recommending your property to them.

Most tenants are keen to visit the area and have a look around their new potential neighborhood, a To Let board can be a good marker as to where they may eventually be living! Parking, what the area is like after dark, and walking distance from stations/work are all considerations for many house hunters, and a board is an easy way to pinpoint a property before a viewing.

However, before you order your board it is important to bear in mind that there are certain regulation’s surrounding To Let boards, and you must make sure your board complies with them! Boards can only be half a square meter in size, councils are able to remove any boards larger than the regulations. In some areas boards are banned in certain historic and conservation.

You can order a to Let board from Urban.co.uk for £39. The board will be printed, delivered and put up in the prime location outside your property, giving you the maximum marketing exposure.
