I spent almost a week marking all the entrants of 28 different categories spanning
from landlord to letting agent, to website, campaigner and innovation and many more
besides, in my capacity as a judge on this year’s Landlord & Letting Awards show
held at the Birmingham NEC.
I remembered Jonathon Ambrose of www.thepropertybid.com as a worthy winner
of the innovation & website category from last year and a nominee this year – but
I did not get to share with you what he and his great team do. He is the brainchild
behind this innovative concept, which his profession as a surveyor and also property
investor put together – which definitely got my mark last year.
As you know I am always very keen to bring to the attention of my fellow landlords,
goods and services that assist us and I think this definitely needs a mention to check
out and see if it works for you.
Thepropertybid.com allows the landlord to upload their properties on their site where
prospective tenants can make bids. The landlord will naturally opt for the highest bid
for their property. The benefit is that tenants can make bids at prices they know they
can afford. What makes this service a must to try is that it is free to join!
Remember to satisfy yourself with the vetting and referencing of your prospective
tenants and integrate this as one of the various tools you can use for advertising for
your next vacant rental.
