I have used other online website agents before and their websites are not as easy to use or as cheap as Open Rent. Uploading photos is simple and intuitive. The adverts are listed on all the major portals very quickly - mine were uploaded on Zoopla and Rightmove an hour or so after I'd clicked the "list" button. Another major selling point is that the advert goes on Gumtree so, if you are clever, you can list it on Gumtree using Open Rent as well as listing it using your own email address. I had a very good response, over a 1-week period I had 20 responses from the Open Rent listing and I found tenants very quickly. I would highly recommend this site, it cuts out having to pay estate agents, I reckon I've save more than £1,000 in agent fees.
I recently used www.openrent.com to find tenants. Simple to use, user friendly, fair, value for money and greater communicators are just a few descriptions of my experience. I advertised with them on the Friday, had 4 viewings on the Saturday and tenant agreed on the Sunday. All at an exceptionally reasonable cost. Very pleased that I don't have to use an estate agent ever again! I will be using openrent again.
When my tenant suddenly dropped a bombshell saying that they needed to leave after just 3 months, I was preparing myself for a month long void as it was at the beginning of Feb. Because of the slow time of year, I considered paying hundreds to a letting agent to find me a tenant but then came across a few good reviews for OpenRent which cost a fraction of the LA prices. So I joined up and paid a little extra for more than 5 days advertising on Rightmove etc, I received several enquiries and found a new tenant in just 2 days!! My tenant moved in at the weekend just 7 days after the previous one left.
I can't speak highly enough of OpenRent, fantastic communication from start to finish and I will most definitely use them from now on.
I can't recommend OpenRent highly enough, its a fantastic, easy and efficient way to advertise a property to let. Great service and communication, excellent coverage and value for money would definitely use again. Thank you
As a new landlord, OpenRent made the process of renting out my property as pain-free as possible. This is the way for private landlords to get their property on to all the major property websites like Rightmove, Zoopla & Gumtree and since there are no agency fees to be paid by either the landlord or the prospective tenant, in my view it has to be the best way forward for conscientious and astute landlords who prefer to advertise their property, interview applicants and arrange viewings themselves. Would-be tenants appreciate the cleanness and simplicity of the service by dealing face-to-face with the landlord and there being no agency fees for them to pay - my successful applicant had previously been asked by a letting agent to pay £400 for credit checks on him and his wife! - so as well saving your prospective tenant money upfront, you can also reassure them that there are no hidden agent fees to pay in future. This gives the OpenRent landlord a competitive edge over the landlord using a letting agent. OpenRent gives you complete control over the situation by immediately notifying you of prospective tenant's enquiries via email and text and they even offer helpful feedback and advice - in my case the number of prospective tenant enquries was so high that OpenRent suggested I might want to review the rent upwards! Within 4 weeks the property has been let to whom I consider the ideal tenant. I couldn't be happier with the professional service provided by OpenRent and would highly recommend them to other private landlords.
OpenRent is the best web for landlord, my 2 bedroom house is in the market only for one day and we got more than 10 families viewed the property, 9 of them like the house. The let is agreed now. It's unbelievable, we also use other free web to list our property for about 2 weeks, no response at all. I definitely use this web when my house available again and will recommend this web to my friend.Thanks very much for your help.
I came across this website trying to advertise on the most popular advertising sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla but was unable unless I handed over the process to a local agent. The website was straight forward and the initial advert free for the first few days. The uploading of information was easy and the software allows you to make changes after going live. Within hours of the upload the advert appeared on sites and the next day I received several text enquiries from the website. I extended the advert but within days found a perfect tenant. I would recommend this site and will use it again. Many thanks. Mike
We have been letting out property in Hull and East Yorkshire for more than 30 years and have never experienced such a fantastic response. We received our first enquiry within an hour of the ad going live and the responses just kept on coming - we had a day of viewings scheduled within 24 hours and have could have let the flat at least five times over to any one of the many high-quality prospective tenants who showed up. OpenRent is a breath of fresh air in a market crying out for a 21st-century makeover - this might just be it! We found the website and tools very easy to use, as did our prospective tenants, several of whom complimented the automated service and the ease of interaction. The team at OpenRent were also unfailingly polite, positive and enthusiastic. We can't fault any aspect of this brilliant service and will certainly be using it again as well as recommending it to our landlord friends and colleagues.
This service is superb for the DIY landlord who doesn't want to engage with estate agents and there politics. The staff appear on the ball and they appreciate the constant contact through email and text message. If there are any issues the staff are happy to iron them out. Most of all in this challenging economic climate they are CHEAPER than their rivals offering a better service. A1 from me, and this is an independent review if your wondering.(like I do)
I am a first time landlord and needed a rental system that was simple to use, both for myself and any prospective tenants. I found that OpenRent made the experience very easy. I was kept informed at all times about what was happening. I advertised my apartment with OpenRent and within 48hrs I had my tenant. It was interesting to hear from my tenant and others, that they used OpenRent as they knew it would not cost them a lot of money in wasted admin fees, that would occur if they used a letting agency. A really important factor for me, was that if OpenRent said they would do something, they did it and very quickly A truly excellent service that I would recommend to both landlords and tenants.
I've been impressed with this company from the moment I heard about it. I used the free 5 day listing and this has got me sufficient leads to rent my property. The online site which allows mgmt of viewings and admin area is excellent. The price is also very reasonable and I believer that open rent have got the price factor just right. They email to keep you updated of reference processing. The ability to earn free listings by referring friends who have property to rent is brilliant. The great thing also is they do not charge a fortune to reference as this puts off many tenants. May this company be the beginning of the end of high street letting agents and their extortionate fees. Brilliant job.
From all the advertising websites for renting properties OpenRent is the best. They have found the most number of interested tenants for me. I thought Rightmove or Zoopla were the best websites but OpenRent is much better and I would recommend them to anybody! Their communication by email is excellent. Thanks very much OpenRent I will definately use your service again!
I like the idea of Open Rent and they do provide a good service for a good price, they are helpful and quick to respond to messages. There is only 1 problem that put me of there service, some may like this way of working, after all it does work but i just find it a hassle and a bit of a put off for prospective tenants. And this is that you can't put your own number or email address on the advert, OpenRent puts theirs on and all interest in the property must got through them, Prospective tenants must leave a voice mail with OpenRent then OpenRent send you a message with a link to listen to the voice mail then you can listen to the message and get back to the inquirer, what is the point of this, I don't know? Hopefully they will change this, but even if they don't overall I would recommend the service, got my property let.
