Accommodation for Students (AFS) has launched a new automated feeds service for buy-to-let landlords and letting agents, enabling them to instantly connect with a large pool of potential student tenants in the UK.
The new feeds service, which is city based, enables landlords to specifically target student tenants by uploading multiple properties in any format in real time, with landlords currently able to list properties on the AFS portal for an introductory offer of £99 per month.
Previously, letting agents and landlords using the AFS portal to advertise their student properties were required to upload properties manually and login to deactivate them when they were no longer available, due to the absence of an automated property feed.
Simon Thompson, director of accommodation for students, said: “We have been working on launching this service for a very long time, but previous attempts had to be taken offline because they were not functioning correctly.
“We now have it working seamlessly with excellent results. It’s also really good news for the three million students that visit the AFS portal every year because they know that the property they are looking at is the most up to date inventory of available properties.”
