Lettings properties can sometimes be difficult to price, but overpricing will kill off your applicant interest really quickly. When you first put your lettings property on the market, you'll get more than half of all of your interest in the first few days. This is because Rightmove and Zoopla send out email alerts to people that have registered for similar properties as soon as your advert goes live. So if you've overcooked it on price, you'll struggle to regain momentum in the process, and may end up taking a large discount to your asking price. Although it only costs £1 to advertise a property on Rightmove or Zoopla using Portico Direct, your first chance is your best chance. Use our rent calculator
to check your rental price before you list your property.
