Landlords Guide

A Landlords Guide

At Michael Roberts Estate Agents, we offer landlords a service that’s much more than just finding tenants and includes a superior understanding of local rents, supply and demand; we assist in preparing a property for occupation and we have experience in tenant negotiations. The letting landscape has changed hugely in the past number of years’, standards have risen and tenants expect a better standard of property which is totally understandable. We will maximise your return, choose the right tenant for your property in the shortest possible time and minimise void periods, saving you money.

Database of applicants – We have a large database of professionals actively seeking to secure a property. Our applicants are primed and all have employment and previous landlord references. Through various means, we have access to the Limerick letting target market, social media marketing, mail advertising, print advertising, contacts with HR managers in local business and larger multinational companies that require corporate lets, all of which gives us access to a large database of tenants

Buy to Let – Checklist & Tips –

There has never been a better to me time to purchase a Buy to Let investment, with yields as much as 10-12% being achieved in Limerick City and rents increasing month on month, so why wait?

Choose a property that is either is in a City Centre location or in close proximity to amenities such as shopping facilities, large companies, Schools, Universities & Colleges and has good transport links. Some features to consider in a house, choose a property with generous bright living accommodation, large double bedrooms, decent sized garden and some other features which tenants find appealing are a solid fuel fire/stove, high ceilings, adequate storage space, converted attic and a high standard of finish.

Maintain your property well and to a high standard, it is worth upgrading furniture and kitchen appliances to a high specification and having a south facing aspect or unique features like river views is always a bonus.

Corporate letting –

We offer a full search agent facility for corporate clients, providing both short and long term lets. Be it a one bedroom apartment in the city or a four bedroom house in the country, we can source either. Let us take the stress out of searching for properties and monotonous viewings of unsuitable properties.
