Private Landlords London shows as 2012 draws to a close, most estate agents and those dependent on the health of the property market will breathe a sigh of relief that they are still in business after another turbulent year in the UK’s declining property sector. However, that is not the case for all those in the property market, as while some operations have gone out of business, a small number have managed to go against the downwards trend and perform better than in previous years (figures from market research by privatelandlordslondon.co.uk )
One such success story from 2012 is that of online estate agents, Private Landlords London, who have reported a record number of online property transactions in the final quarter of 2012. This is despite there still being a month to go until the end of the year. With years in the business behind them, their move to doing most of their business online was a gradual one. Once things started to pick up, however, this firm of online estate agents in London were quick to embrace the new technology and recognise its potential.
While some London estate agents were slow to see the potential of the internet when it came to doing business, Private Landlords London credits the use of this medium as a key to its growing success in a stagnant market.
Although most high street estate agents have a website and some form of online presence, this isn’t often enough to help them stand out from the crowd. By opening up two way channels of communication between themselves and their clients, the agents have been able to become increasingly contactable and more able to meet the needs of their clients.
Private Landlords London’s use of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, have allowed them to be where their clients are in the online space. Sharing details of new properties that are available in this way has increased the speed in which their clients are informed of a suitable property entering the market.
With Private Landlords London crediting their positive final quarter performance with an active online presence, it won’t be long before more estate agents begin embracing the world of social media.
