How Could ‘Lifetime Deposits’ Change the Fife Rental Market?
“Fife Landlord? The new Renter’s Reform Bill in England that will be published in the Spring could be the biggest change to their Buy-To-Let property market in 30 years with the introduction of transferable ‘Lifetime Deposits’.   How will the Government ensure their landlords, aren’t out of pocket when a new tenant moves into their buy-to-let property and the deposit is claimed by their previous landlord?  Could this be the beginning in Scotland and how could it affect us?   Join Lettings Director Richard Cook along with one of the UKs most successful property investors, Jim Parker (who will more than likely share some of his secrets) and experienced Landlord Investor James Watson and we’ll take your questions LIVE.   (watch/read/listen) https://www.fifeproperties.co.uk/blog/how-could-lifetime-deposits-change-the-fife-rental-market/ #DepositProtection #FifeLandlords #FifeTenants #FifeLettingAgents

None of this happens by itself, and, just with any business, a plan of action is the key to success. Great tenants pay more money for beautiful homes, and you only have to look at new-build properties for proof that new price ceilings can always be set. By offering a home that reflects the earnings and aspirations of professional people, you create a win-win situation: your tenancies last for longer, your property is better cared for, and your buy-to-let is a joy to own with a healthy return to boot.

Have you ever wondered why some homes get multiple offers, while others struggle to get even one? It's rarely down to chance.

FP TV (EP 60) AUTUMN ADVANTAGES: Five Gold Selling Secrets of The Underrated Season
FP TV (EP 60) AUTUMN ADVANTAGES: Five Gold Selling Secrets of The Underrated Season Autumn gets a bad rap as a season for selling your home. It's always pushed back behind the blossom of spring, the sunshine of summer, and the festive magic of winter. But Autumn is what you might call the hidden gem of seasons to sell. There's still plenty of activity from buyers, the leaves are turning into a bold and beautiful display of colour, and there are no stressful deadlines like Christmas and school years to meet. Instead, Autumn can be the most relaxed season for starting and planning a move.

FP TV (EP 57) LONGER LETTINGS: How To Attract And Keep Great Tenants For Years Every landlord and tenant want exactly the same thing: security and stability.

Renting a property has become a more permanent lifestyle choice, and tenancies are getting longer and longer. Many tenants plan to stay in a home for 3 or 4 years – and sometimes more than that – which means they're looking at potential properties in more detail.

FPTV (EP 54) STRUGGLING TO SELL in FIFE: Is It Your Price, Or Is It Something Else?
Despite the strongest market in a decade with property selling faster than ever, there are still homes in Fife that have not sold. If you've been on the market for some time, you could be wondering why on earth you don't have a buyer when demand is so high.

“The British Love (and Hate) Affair with the Semi-Detached House has been an up and down matter for a couple of centuries.    In this vlog, I look at how the semi-detached house has shaped the local Fife and British housing markets and why we, as a nation, both love (and hate) the humble semi-detached house.    If you are a Fife homeowner or landlord, whether you live in a semi-detached house or not, you may find this of interest to you”  (watch/read/listen) https://www.fifeproperties.co.uk/blog/fifes-love-and-hate-affair-with-the-semi-detached-house/ #SemiDetached #FifeProperty #FifeHousing #FifeLandords #HouseStyles

It's a constant challenge for landlords and letting agents when the demand from tenants is for unfurnished property, but when homes never look their best when they're empty. With no comfy couches or well-dressed beds to draw someone's attention, your property needs to work harder to secure the best tenant and the highest rent.

FP TV (EP 47) GROWTH OR YIELD: Which Buy-To-Let Strategy Is Right For You
Building a successful lettings portfolio is an exciting route to financial freedom, and picking a direction for your buy-to-let business ultimately comes down to two choices: capital growth or rental yield. When it comes to choosing between them, you'll find strong proponents of both whenever you ask the question. For some, capital growth is the be-all and end-all of being a landlord, while others extol the benefits of immediate income and higher yields. You'll also find many successful landlords operating in each camp, with some even managing to combine both strategies.

FPTV (EP 40) SOLD WITH TENANTS: Your Landlord Checklist For Buying A Tenanted Property in Fife
As a fast and chain-free way to start or add to your lettings portfolio, buying a tenanted property can be an attractive proposition. Usually, when you buy a property to rent out, you’ll need to have it cleaned, fix any repairs, get it on the market, show people around, take up references and create a tenancy agreement before seeing any income. But that’s all taken care of when the property you buy already has a tenant.  However, you’ll also inherit every outstanding responsibility of the previous landlord, and you need to be sure that the property and tenancy are all they seem. Do the figures stack up? Are you happy with the tenant? Will you be taking on unresolved problems or disputes?   Join Lettings Director Richard Cook and one of the UK’s most successful Estate Agents, Jim Parker (who will more than likely share some of his unique insight), this Saturday morning live on “The Fife property Show”.

Being an estate agent is a bit like running a dating agency: playing Cupid every day, cultivating commitment and building long-term relationships that lead to living together.

FP TV (EP 34) RENTAL UPGRADES: 5 Improvements to Increase Your Income
The rental market has grown up. Higher occupancy rates, longer tenancies, higher expectations from tenants. This spells good news for landlords because those higher expectations come with a willingness to pay a higher rent. More than that, the right improvements will also increase the value of your property, giving you precious equity to finance and expand your portfolio. But what improvements provide the highest returns?

Not every inventory ends up providing the protection that landlords expect. There are plenty of cases where the language used – and the style adopted – have caused more confusion and doubt over disputes, which for a landlord will generally mean a reduced or refused claim.   You’ll not only risk a costly dispute, but you'll also sow the seeds of worry in your tenants. The more documentation you have that you can agree on from the outset, the more professional you'll look as a landlord and the more comfortable your tenants will feel.   Join one of the UK’s most successful investor landlords, Jim Parker (who will more than likely share some of his secrets), Fife’s No.1 Letting Agents Richard Cook and Kerin Marshall this Saturday morning live on “The Fife Property Show”.

Fife Landlord Show (EP:1) DEPOSIT DISPUTES: Why Do So Many Landlords Lose?
Ending up in a dispute at the end of a tenancy is one of the least inviting prospects of being a landlord, and thankfully most tenancies end perfectly amicably. But when they do end in disagreement, many landlords manage to lose their claim, leading them to feel that the system is weighted against them. So, in this week's show, we're taking a look at why landlords – and particularly self-managing ones – lose so many disputes.  If you own a rental property in Fife and you've either lost a dispute, or you'd like to chat about minimising the chances of them happening please tune in tonight. Hosted by Richard Cook with guest hosts and experienced Letting Agent Kerin Marshall and Landlord/investor Jim Parker.   This is an interactive broadcast, and all are welcome to ask questions live on air, hope to see you all Tonight!    Read more (4 mins): https://www.fifeproperties.co.uk/blog/deposit-disputes-why-do-so-many-landlords-lose/ #BuyToLet #Deposit #DepositDispute #FifeLandlords #Landlords #LettingAgent #Lettings #PropertyManagement

Once again, we’re about to share our secrets on how we get outstanding results!  Have you ever wondered how to pick the perfect time to sell your Fife home? It’s probably the question we’re asked the most when talking to people about their move. But how do you pick your moment with so much conflicting advice? Should you exploit the new year rush, or sell in the spring when the blossom is on the trees? Is it better to get in before the summer holidays, or wait till the kids have gone back to the school in September, or join the Boxing Day Bounce? You’re certainly not alone if you’re a little confused, but there’s more to selling your home than picking the time of year. And while it’s not a scientific formula, there are elements worth considering when choosing when to move.   It’s all up for discussion this Saturday morning live on “The Fife property Show” will regular hosts Jim Parker, Jimmy Mullen and Richard Cook.

On the 16th January 2002 John’s life changed forever. His son Lee died after inhaling lighter fluid.

There are so many different saving schemes out there, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which is best for you.

OK BORIS, WE’RE NOT SHUTTING! What are we doing during the lock down in FIFE?
It’s important that we look after the safety of our employees and customers, and since 2006 whilst we’ve shut our offices at night, weekends and holidays we have been available for our customers. We have proved this time and time again by agreeing house sales on Christmas Day, Boxing day, Hogmanay and New Year’s Day.
