Equity Residential Ltd

letting & management consultants since 1998

Whether you're looking for a property or have one to let, Equity makes it easy for you. We advertise on the major websites so it's easy for tenants to search and find the right property for them. Year on year we are finding more and more prospective tenants using the internet to search for their perfect property. Whether using one of the major portals or social media, if you are not on the net then you're not in the know!

If you're looking for a property, we know you'll want want to hear about it as soon as a new property comes onto the market – not just by telephone, but instantly to your phone or mail box. Using Twitter and Facebook to broadcast news, we enable our followers to be the first to know when we find a new property. Using one of the property portal phone apps, it's easy to instantly view a new property's details complete with photographs, even on the move – then get in touch with the click of a button! Since 2009 over 1 million people have now downloaded the ‘Rightmove iPhone app’ alone (source: Rightmove, January 2011).

The top four property portals had 4.8 million unique visitors in December 2010 alone (source: property portal watch, February 2011) … which is why we continue to invest in our online advertising. Prospective tenants should be able to see detailed information and photographs and therefore make an informed decision before viewing.

We do know however, that It not just about the internet. Each member of our team is encouraged to see every property we advertise so that every enquiry we receive can be dealt with and recommended with informed knowledge. And if we don’t have the property available now? We will search for you and let you know when something suitable is coming up.
