HOW IS POCKETLET DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL RENTAL AGENTS?
Landlords switching from a traditional rental agent can save R1000’s in tenancy set up fees, monthly commission and renewal fees. With PocketLet, you are in complete control of letting your property and rather than offer an inflexible and expensive package, you pick and choose the services you need from us. You will have full support from a PocketLet team member throughout the process as well as any other additional support you may need from our ARLA qualified team available from 8am to 8pm.
DOES POCKETLET WORK?
By advertising through PocketLet you are giving yourself the best chance of finding the ideal tenant for you and your property. We do the same as a rental agent would do by putting your property on the most popular property portals where we know tenants go to look for their next rental: just at a fraction of the cost.
WHERE WILL MY ADVERT APPEAR?
Your property advert will appear on all the major property portals sites including Property24, PrivateProperty and Gumtree. The advert will also appear on our own website as well as many other property portals such as ______.
DOES POCKETLET WORK ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY?
Yes, we successfully advertise properties across South Africa. There are a few onsite services which may not yet be available in your area.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE TENANT ENQUIRIES?
You will receive an email and text alert when a tenant makes an enquiry about your property through one of the property portals, or by ringing our tenant line. If you do not wish to receive text alerts, simply opt out on your dashboard or call us on ________.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT TENANT?
Firstly, make sure you know what kind of tenants you would like and make sure your advertising and your property appeals to that type of person. Ask the right questions to vet your enquiries and weed out any time-wasters and then do the same at the viewings. Gut instinct is also important when choosing your tenant. Thorough referencing will ensure you’ve covered all bases.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ADVERT TO GO LIVE?
PocketLet will approve your property in 1-2 hours during office hours. If you upload a property between 8pm-8am, it will be approved in the morning.
WHO CAN I SPEAK TO IF THINGS GO WRONG OR I GET STUCK?
