I had not sold a property online before - and now I would recommend it to anybody selling a house.
The fixed price is excellent and you know there is nothing further to pay to agents when your sale is completed. Urban Sales and Lettings are very supportive at each stage, very happy to discuss the process and answer questions (even if the info is actually on their website), and helpful with any issues about uploading your advert, your pictures and the floorplans.
My advert was displayed on many popular online property websites - and I received a steady flow of interest, particularly from people who had looked on RightMove.
The house in Hebden Bridge was difficult to sell because it had been empty for some time and had a mixture of excellent renovated parts but with several matters still needing attention.
However a relatively quick sale was achieved with excellent support form Urban Sales and Lettings at each stage. I would now use them every time.
I was looking for a way to advertise my property on all the major property sites. I choose urban sales and letting as they would do it all for me saving time and money.Its easy to use the site and i got a lot of interest in my property resulting in a let.I will be using urban sales and letting for all my future needs
I`ve advertised 2 properties. It took a while to find tenants for the first property, but the second one went almost immediately. The key to success was that I headed up the second advert that I was a private landlord who did not charge high agency fees. For all future adverts (we own 10 properties) I will state the exact fees - which are very low anyway - being charged, and allow prospective tenants to decide whether they want to contact us for a viewing. Feedback I have had from prospective tenants is that the majority of Letting Agents charge them high fees with no guarantee that they will accept them as tenants.
I found that the team at Urban Sales & Lettings were very quick to respond to emails and phone contact, and were helpful to me as a businessman. I will definitely use them again
As a first time user of the Urban Sales & Lettings website we can honestly say we were a bit unsure of how many enquiries we would receive. However, enquiries came through thick and fast - both to our email address and mobile phone at all hours of the day and night! We will definitely keep using this website in the future.
I remember the early days I spent as a landlord with a single property - it was almost impossible to get the place advertised on the big websites unless you were an estate agent. As I like to manage the property myself without an estate agent taking a cut Urban Sales & Lettings offered the perfect service for me at a reasonable price. No wonder it's becoming more successful.
I was looking for an effective way of advertising my rental property and was shocked by the potential fees charged by traditional Estate agents who had branched out to accomodate the rentals market, I couldn't see what they would be doing to justify the level of fee. All I wanted was access to the widest audience at lowest outlay. Urbans alesand lettings was perfect I found a tenant within 72 hours. Their communications were efficient, I spoke to an actual person who knew what they were doing and did what they said they would do, my property was delisted within 24 hrs of my request for example.
I will be a returning customer I'm convinced that this is the future, no nonsense service, no add ons or hidden charges....you get what you pay for ...simple.
Have been using UrbanSalesAndLettings for a couple of years now and find it very easy to use, flexible and convenient. It is also reasonably priced and gives you full control of your property viewings. Would definitely recommend to others.
I used Urban Sales and Lettings because I wanted to sell my flat without using a standard agent who would have overpriced it (they pretty much all do this to get their commission). What a difference USL is - they really are spot on for customer service. The floorplan was sorted within 2 days of me paying the one off fee. The advert interface is really simple to use too. People coming to view my flat really liked the fact that they could talk directly to the vendor and get a straight answer instead of going through an agent. As my flat is a leasehold property many people asked about the management company structure and other important legal matters regarding the freehold. I felt much more comfortable explaining this all myself (as I understand it well) instead of leaving this to an agent to handle. This is also the best way to get your property on Rightmove and Zoopla. I sold my place within 2 months of the advert going up online and for the asking price. I have also saved at least £2000 on the usual estate agent fees. I have recommended Urban Sales and Lettings to all my friends - I will definitely be using them again. Standard high street estate agents are just too expensive and inefficient and I am pretty sure I won't be using them ever again to sell property.
I highly recommend using Urban Sales and Lettings rather than a traditional High Street estate agent. The process is very straightforward and you can easily edit or amend your photos and descriptions. This is the second house I have sold using this method in the last 18 months. The first sold after 8 months and we had on average 1 viewing per month, and the second house sold on the first weekend, but we continued to get one viewing enquiry every 2 weeks on average until we marked the house as sold. Obviously you have to price the house accurately and give good descriptions but the rest is simple.
Whenever I have to find new tenants for my properties, it has to be Urban Sales and Lettings Online. The staff are so helpful but the proof of the pudding - I have always found a suitable tenant through them within two weeks! I would, and do, recommend this company to anyone.
My wife and I have been renting out a flat for three years. Our first tenant was found for us by an agent and we didn't have any input into the process. I then looked for an alternative, and found Urban Sales and Lettings. I uploaded photos and a description onto the website, and the process has been very straightforward. Potential tenants see the property on one of the major property websites, and their enquiries are routed to us via email and text. Then we deal directly with them.
Cheap, easy, affordable way for landlords to advertise their property.
Very clear instructions
No hidden costs/fees
Fantastic communication and service
i would definately do buisness with you again thankyou
Sales team get back to you straight away - again fab communication - unlike previous local letting agents that I have used in the past
I wondered if this would work, i was worried the first time i paid my money , it work alright, i like to take control so urban pass the leads to me and i take over.
I was very pleased with the service I had from urban sales. They were in contact with me all the way through my sale and there was always someone at the end of a telephone to give me advice
Just what I needed for my property - no hassle advertising service at a very reasonable price.
Everything online and sorted leaving you with full control on content.
Text and email updates for interested parties to allow you to book you appointments at your mutual convenience. We ordered a sign board and this was fitted on the day the specified.
Unless you really need the services of a letting agent to manage the appointments and the viewings there is really no reason not to use this service.
Used this service for around 4 years now to let my small portfolio. Great service from knowledgeable staff and very well prices. Sold off one of my properties using this service which also worked well. I recommend to all landlords and sells. Great alternative to high street
I let two properties in London in no time at all. I have 7 properties and had 2 tenants handed in their notice at the same time, previously I have
always used local agents, (foxtons!). This cost me 11% plus vat of my rent! I thought all I need is Rightmove and Zoopla coverage and I found Urban. The great thing about urban is there is genuine support as well which is amazing for the price. One of my properties flew , loads of enquires let straight away, the other took some time…
I called and moaned expecting no help, but not so.. they made some suggestions to change the advertising , sent me a 12 page competition report and loads of stats.. a few well-placed changes later and the enquires started coming in. One of the changes they suggested was so simple , change the rent by just £10 and
you fall into the lower bracket on Rightmove, hence opening your property up to more people searching … it’s that kind of advice a landlord needs. Thanks
Urban, I’ll be back
We knew we wanted to use an online agent to list our house, as in this day and age the way to get your house seen is on Rightmove, and no longer in the local paper as much.
We spent a good amount of time searching and reading reviews to decide which agent to use, and decided US&L seemed very professional, yet extremely reasonably priced! The bonus was that it included the floorplan, and we didn't have to get a professional photographer. We were more than happy to take our own photos and preferred this.
The Live Chat was extremely useful before committing to the package, especially as it was a real person on the end and not a computer!
Uploading all of our photos and description couldn't have been easier, and we were very excited to set the property Live when the time was right for us.
The Text and Email method of being notified of an interested viewer for the property was quick and efficient. We had no trouble contacting any of the viewers and they all fed back to us that they found US&L very polite on the phone.
Every point of contact we have had with US&L has been exceptional, and we were very pleased that they were on the end of the phone at 10am on a Sunday when we accepted an offer on our home.
Our property is now SSTC after less than 3 weeks on the market, and we are telling everyone we know to use US&L and save on the agency fee's!
This is a really good website. As Landlords we always like to do our own viewings and vet the prospective Tenants.
We have now let 4 properties with Urban Sales and Lettings and have found it a very cost effective way to advertise.
The girls in the Office are very helpful and are at the other end of the phone
I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Urban Sales and
I saw that other landlords had used this agent on rightmove, so I did the same. It was easy to upload and quick to make it to rightmove etc. I got a tenant after 2 applicants. So good quality and no time wasters. Thanks will use again
I have used Urban Sales and Lettings a few times now and would never use an agent. The advisers do just that, sound, honest and helpful advice and are only a phone call away if you need them. Your property is advertised on all major sites and the tenants have all been well referenced and a pleasure to have renting my property.
What are you waiting for? Why pay agent fees? Give it a go you'll be surprised at how simple they make it.
Living in a fairly remote part of Wales we wondered if Urban Sales was the right internet Estate Agent for us. However, apart from a slight delay in their appointed surveyor visiting the property, everything else went very smoothly. With their link to the Rightmove, and Zoopla site we were very pleased with the amount of viewings that were referred to us
I’ve just completed my first sale of a property through Urban Sales & Lettings. I couldn’t be more pleased. I have used US&L for renting properties for five years and have always been very pleased. But a sale is at a different level, or so I thought.
I was nervous that purchasers would prefer to deal with an agent rather than an owner. That wasn’t the case. All the prospects expressed great relief at not having to deal with agents.
I was very impressed by the quality of the prospective purchasers. The 2nd applicant was a cash buyer and made a decision that day to buy at the asking price. The sale proceeded without hitches to completion 6 weeks later.
The Urban Sales and Lettings team have a very high standard of service and a great ‘can do’ attitude. Bethan Forbes, closely followed by Louise Ross, always answer my numerous questions and requests with great patience and professionalism.
In addition to not paying the estate agents their enormous fees I was spared the frustration of having to deal with them. The last time I put a property on sale through an agent it took them 3 attempts over 3 months to get the description right. Errors were made over the simplest details e.g. spelling double glazing wrong, I wouldn’t have minded but the property didn’t even have double glazing! Having finally got the details right they then took 10 months to fail to sell the property in Bermondsey Street, one of London’s ‘hot spots’.
As another US&L customer says: we owners are far better qualified to market our properties because we know what appealed to us in the first place. To an agent our property is yet another pile of easily earned commission with the nuisance of having to answer occasional questions from the owner. Not any more ...
I let my apartment through Urban Sales & Lettings in less than 10 days! We had loads of interest and the quality of prospective tenants was brilliant. We used to use Gumtree but we found US&L to be much better.
Thank you Urban Sales & Lettings
I have tried this company to let my flat in Ayr, and find the service excellent value for money. 1 reply from a single publication in the local newspaper at same cost, and 16 replies from the Urban sales effort over a two month period . I'll be back, next tiome I'm letting my flat
The following day after purchasing an online package there was a Sale Board outside my house. A few days after that; a woman came to my house to take photographs and produce energy certificate & floor plan. A very good service & any queries I had during the process was responding to very quickly. My house sold within 3 months & I am very happy with the service given.
