|Frequently asked questions|
|Q: What is thesmartwaytorent?
A: A web site that offers valued added benefits to both Landlords and tenants.
Q: Why does is help Landlords?
A: Because Landlords can search for tenants requirements, they can not only see demand for their property but make sure they register with a local smartwaytorent agent for their property to reach the widest selection of tenants as soon as possible. You can also judge demand for property in the area you are renting or even help in deciding where to buy, showing the demand in that area.
Q: If landlords can see what tenants are looking for, Does that mean they can see my personal information.
A: No. They will only be able to see what tenants are looking for. You will be given a reference number in place of your name and all information on the site is private and can only be accessed by the smartwaytorent administrators.
Q: Why does it help prospective tenants?
A: Not only are landlords able to judge demand in their property. They can ensure that by registering with a smartwaytorent local agent, you will receive notification of the latest properties by text or email as soon as they are registered on the web site.
Q: I am looking for a property to rent and have to continually visit agents and their websites. Why is thesmartwaytorent different to others and will I have to continually visit the site to see what is available.
A: We realise letting a home is as a frustrating experience to the prospective tenant as it is to the landlord. We have tried to provide equal access to the landlord and tenant for what tenants are looking for and what landlords have available. Letting landlords see demand and telling tenants what is available is the key to the success of our website, notifying you of the latest properties without the need to revisit everyday.
Q: So if you are going to tell me of a new property as soon as it is available, do I need to revisit the website.
A: No, you do not need to revisit, but the information you have entered can be edited in case you change your mind in what you are looking for and it is always a good idea to visit the site in case anything else is of interest.
Q: I have visited many property websites, why is the smartwaytorent so quick to use.
A: When developing the web site, we were very aware of the confusing nature of some of the property web sites, this in turn slowed down dramatically the users use of the site. Our site is simple. Landlord or Tenant. Choose option and there's your answer. Quick and easy.
Q: I keep visiting other agents websites and have resorted to visiting their offices or calling them on a regular basis to find a suitable property. Why is thesmartwaytorent so different.
A: Having been prospective tenants our selves, finding a property is a frustrating experience. Newspapers are out of date, Agents websites are full of old properties, Property web sites are only as good as the agent that updates them. Agents never tell you of new properties. The list goes on and the experience is never a pleasant one. We could list endlessly the problems prospective tenants have when looking for a property. We will summarise our understanding of the key to our success.
Q: I cannot find a suitable property.
A: Searching on the site is kept simple, if you cannot find a suitable property make sure you register and then when a Landlord is looking for a tenant, he may find you.
Q: So why are you unique.
A: The experience we offer is easy to use, fast and not only enables Landlords to locate tenants sooner but tenants to find their next home without the trauma.
Q: It doesn't sound very different to other web sites.
A: Its up to you to use it and understand the differences, you will soon see that in your inbox, being told about a property that you would have otherwise missed or a Landlord registering his property because he saw what you were looking for. Why be a needle in a haystack, register and see if the landlord finds you.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: It's free. Agents registering their properties on the web site pay a nominal fee, which ensures as many properties as possible are available and keep the service free.
Q: Are the texts I receive charged at a premium rate.
A: Texts are free to tenants, no charges at all unless your mobile operator charges for you to receive them
Q: I get texts or emails from you and am not registered.
A: We ask all those registering their details to log their number or email address twice, sometimes they may have made an error. Please email or text us with the query and will rectify it as soon as possible.
Q: I want to change my requirements, what do I do.
A: Please log into your screen and amend your information.
Q: How often is the web site updated?
A: The web site is constantly updated, as soon as a new property is uploaded and as soon as a prospective tenant registers.
Q: What do I do when I receive a text?
A: The text will advise you that a new property has been registered matching your requirements. Either visit the website for more details or call the number attached to the text for more details.
Q: What happens when I get an email?
A: You will get details of the new property and then can choose to visit the link to the site or call thesmartwaytorent agent to ask any questions or arrange to view the property.
Q: Will thesmartwaytorent just become the same as the other web sites?
A: We believe in our product and simplicity will always be its strong point.
