10 Reasons why you should use Crucible to Let your property

2. Community Driven
Crucible is a local, independent, sales and lettings agency and unlike any other Estate Agents we are truly unique. We are very proud to be able to say that 100% of all of our profits go into housing and support for vulnerable people
3. Local Staff
Letting a property is still a local business. Our staff know the local market and our lettings negotiators know the all potential tenants because they are in constant contact with them
I’m going to be honest up front, I don’t buy absolutely everything I buy for myself or for the business from local independent companies, but I do try whenever possible to do so.
You might be asking why do I think it’s important? Research shows that money spent in locally owned & run independent businesses is far more likely to stay in the area and be recycled around the local community which is for the good of us all. No-one wants to see their local shops or businesses close down and people lose their jobs, but this is the sort of thing that will continue to happen if we ignore the benefits of buying locally.
When it comes to Estate Agency there are a large number of agents to choose from and to the consumer I would imagine that at first glance it may appear difficult to work out who is a genuine locally owned & independently run business. We are and the fact that we give all our profits back into the local community has to be a good thing.
5. Social media
Love it or hate it social media plays a huge part in our everyday life, Crucible have embraced all aspects of social media to promote your property to a captive audience who demand 24/7 access to property via every platform possible. We have been recognised in the Zoopla property power 100 for our social media prowess.
6. Developing people
Developing a strong and dynamic workforce can only lead to better over customer experience. We constantly coach and guide our staff in all aspects of estate agency. It’s vitally important for our employees to enhance their individual knowledge to give our clients the advice required.
Nowadays more than 90% of people start their property search on the internet. We advertise on all the major property portals which cover more than 95% of all online property searches.
8. Knowledge and Advice
If i’ve learned one thing in 22 years of selling homes, it’s that no two lets are the same. That’s why our people aren’t just brilliant at getting the property let, they’ll give you help and advice that’s right for your property and your situation, making sure you get the best possible result.
Some agents will tell you anything just to get an instruction from you. Not us. Our property experts will give you their professional opinion. We don’t hide cost or have different fee scales depending on the day of the week.
10. Proactive Approach
As soon as we are instructed to market your property our lettings negotiators will hit the phones to secure viewings from potential tenants. The faster we can arrange a viewing and take an application the shorter the period the property is sat empty.
