OpenRent vs Traditional Letting Agent?
Following the sale of our rental house falling through, we have been mulling over the idea of renting it out again rather than selling it. Looking at houses available in our area, there’s only one 4 bedroom house available so kinda feel like we’d be doing a good deed keeping the house on the rental market, but obviously there will be a fair amount of demand and we might get inundated.
Anyway, with the likes of OpenRent where I can advertise on rightmove and do the tenant referencing, rent guarantee insurance, etc, is there any real reason to use a traditional letting agent? Other than doing the viewings (though I’d like to meet prospective tenants myself), what does a Letting Agent do that OpenRent don’t?
