The family lettings season arrives early

The family lettings season arrives early
By Fiona Patton

This has already resulted in lettings success at Crisp Cowley for larger family homes this Spring. Fiona tells us that in most instances, when a good quality family house comes to the market it lets within a few days and in some cases on a first viewing. A case in point is a beautiful 4 bedroom Georgian family house that Crisp Cowley have just let on Widcombe Hill . Fiona had been in touch with the applicant for several months and was able to recommend them to the landlords the moment the property was marketed, resulting in a highly satisfactory agreement for both parties.

Another success in Widcombe was a delightful cottage style property in Clarendon Road, again Fiona was already talking with the eventual tenants, a young professional family, a long term tenancy was agreed to the satisfaction of the owner, who was going abroad.

Other recent noteworthy family lets include a beautiful period 4 bed townhouse in Daniel Street and the immediate letting of a larger family friendly penthouse apartment at Bath Riverside where once again, Fiona was able to match the property from her list of suitable family applicants only hours after the current tenant had given notice.

Fiona confirms that there seems to be a shortage of good quality family houses at present even as she maintains contact with an ever growing list of quality applicants looking to move shortly. She says it is important for applicants to stay closely in touch with agents and not to rely entirely upon the internet; some properties are only being marketed in a low key manner and are then snapped up by applicants who have stayed in touch with us personally.

If you are considering bringing a family home to the lettings market this Spring, please call Fiona Patton on 01225 750917 – she may already have the perfect tenant for you!
