PlanetRent Partners 360View
Lettings platform PlanetRent has partnered with virtual reality technology company The 360 View to offer virtual tours of rental properties. The partnership allows landlords and agents to create virtual tours that they can attach to the property listing through the PlanetRent platform. Renters who use the PlanetRent platform will be able to access a four-minute virtual tour of their chosen property, while accessing additional information about rent, location and size of the property. Mary-Anne Bowring, founder and creator of PlanetRent, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with 360view to offer virtual tours of our listed properties.
“ Landlords and agents who use PlanetRent will be able to instruct our partner to carry out virtual tours of their properties, and they will take care of the rest. “Virtual property tours have seen a surge in popularity since the coronavirus lockdown, and we’ve certainly spotted a gap in the market for high-quality video virtual tours for the residential property market.” In addition to allowing residents to view properties, PlanetRent ensures landlords are fully by providing them with all the legally required paperwork. There is a deposit-free option has a standardised pet-friendly clause that landlords can insert into tenancy agreements.
Ryan Bembridge: Why are we waiting?
Under Offer: This term applies to a property where the landlord is considering an offer but remains on the market. It implies that further offers may still be considered until the landlord formally accepts or declines the current offer.
Let Agreed: This term indicates that a landlord has provisionally agreed to enter into a rental agreement with a prospective tenant, pending additional checks and referencing. It doesn't require the prospective tenant to have paid a holding deposit.
Let: This term signifies an established binding rental agreement between the landlord and tenant.
For both lettings and sales, the guidance addresses additional terms:
New On The Market: This term is used for a property not advertised since its last sale or rental. It should only be used for a brief period.
New Instruction: It applies to a property assigned to an agent for marketing recently, even if it was previously listed with another agent without being sold or rented.
New and Exclusive: This term refers to a property that is either new on the market or a new instruction, exclusively available through a specific agent or portal.
New Method of Sale/Let: This term is used when a property is being marketed for sale or rent using an alternative approach to the original advertisement, such as transitioning to an auction or sealed bid.
Reduced: This term indicates that a property's price has recently been reduced. The reduction should be genuine and comply with the Chartered Trading Standards Institute's guidelines on pricing practices.
