Lettings and Property Management

Join our rapidly growing, and award-winning lettings business. The Your Move branch network currently manages in excess of 33,000 properties for landlords throughout the UK.

Consistently ‘year on year’, Your Move has achieved ‘double digit’ growth with lettings revenue. With the size of the rental sector ever increasing we have invested heavily in technology and infrastructure to enable delivery of a first class service, and one which differentiates us from the competition.

Whilst providing an immediate income stream at the point a property is let, the income derived from full property management provides a monthly ‘trail income’ providing stability for business owners. The value attributed to a sizeable lettings portfolio can be significant. There has never been a better time to develop a lettings business with your estate agency.

  • As active members of ARLA we commit to keep you fully briefed and prepared with any legislation changes. Training is provided for all your staff.
  • The Your Move lettings solution is fulfilled through the PREVIEW system which as a real time case management system provides a full suite of letters and documents to guide you through the process compliantly.

Marketing and Cost Savings

As the single largest estate agency brand in the UK, as you would expect we are real heavyweights when it comes to marketing and brand awareness.

We provide marketing solutions to capture the seasonal market changes and the different areas of focus. Using a range of advertising mediums including television, radio, internet, newspapers, and direct marketing our objective is to reach as far and wide as possible generating enquiries from buyers and sellers for the Your Move.

In 2016, Your Move has embarked on the biggest media campaign in our history. Prime time television advertising on ITV 1, Sky, Channel 4, Channel 5, and ITV Digital supported by ‘video on demand’ advertising has helped our branches secure valuable instructions in the first quarter of the year. As we move into the spring, this campaign is then to be superseded by nationwide radio campaigns on stations including Heart FM and Capital FM.

At Your Move we understand how important it is to give you every opportunity to succeed. Local marketing campaigns including leaflets to all local sellers are available to be dropped via Royal Mail supporting the wider message.

With television, radio and direct marketing the Your Move message has never been louder – but our ability to provide a positive impact on your business doesn’t just stop there – we deliver these solutions to you at exceptionally good value.

With our relationships and group leverage the cost of advertising, marketing materials and delivery will be more cost effective than as a sole trader.

In addition to the above, as a Your Move franchisee you will benefit from:

  • Significant savings in Rightmove and Zoopla portals. Our experience is that through group leverage we will be able to deliver significant combined savings on a monthly basis by utilising a ‘bundled package’ with Your Move.
  • A wide range of professionally designed marketing materials including Sales Presenters, Brochures, Guides and Branch Materials.
  • Our economies of scale mean we can deliver significant savings across portals, marketing designs, Royal Mail door to door delivery, and printing.
  • We boast the UK’s most visited agent website ref  – we offer individual branch pages (including Search Engine Optimisation); MyMove client file; and lead generation tools.
  • Our comprehensive email marketing allows you to communicate quickly and effectively, spreading messages instantly.
  • Expertise includes Brand Management, Digital & Email Marketing and Consumer Insight.
