PlanetRent, an automated letting platform, has been launched enabling landlords to market their property directly on Zoopla and Rightmove on a pay-as-you-go basis.
The platform, which is free to download and use, also allows landlords to create their own personalised website to advertise their properties on, with real-time reporting and updates on when offers are made.
For landlords who use letting agents, PlanetRent works on the premise that the landlord owns their properties so should be in control of the big data.
Tenants are automatically prompted by PlanetRent towards the end of the tenancy and are encouraged to renew.
If a tenant does choose to vacate however, they are automatically sent the necessary end of tenancy process and advice on how to get their deposit back as well as the requirements for them to assist in viewings, repairs and the remarketing process.
The remarketing process is also automatically triggered too.
Mary-Anne Bowring, group managing director at Ringley Group, which developed PlanetRent in-house, said: “PlanetRent has been designed to save landlords and agents, time, money and hassle, by automating the majority of the lettings process. Now more than ever, landlords need to focus on the correct marketing strategies for their properties and we’re confident that PlanetRent has the perfect offering for landlords of all sizes.
“With the rental market on the bounce-back, landlords should take full advantage of the best places to market their property as competition in the market will reach the levels seen before the UK entered lockdown.”
