Simply, they’re letting agents that don’t have shop-fronts. They operate purely online. The most reputable (and recommendable) online agents have a fully dedicated support team that can be easily contacted via phone, email and in person so you’re not just dealing with a faceless company your actually dealing with real people with experience in the field.
Online agents will market a rental property across several of the biggest UK property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla, the same as a high street letting agent, which gives every landlord a great platform to generate enquiries from prospective tenants.
Both online and high street agents will be based locally so have excellent local knowledge however online only agents, don’t have as many overheads as high street agents, so these savings can be passed onto the tenants and landlords.
These days, in terms of services, online letting agents can offer most of the services high-street agents can. If you use a local online business owned agent, rather than a high street agency with employees, I can guarantee, who you will get a better service from. The online business owner agency will win hands down, it is not just your property, it’s their business too. This pretty much guarantees a very high service and standard of care to you and your property.
