  • How to market a buy to let

    I have a house owned without mortgage in West Yorkshire which I rent out. The tenant would like to be in 'long term', currently on a rolling 6 month contract.

    I would like to sell the property and thought that i could sell it to someone who wants to own it as a rental property and in which case it is desirable as it will be with tenant.

    The problem I am having is finding somewhere to advertise the property as a buy to let, if that is the right term. For example, if I look on rightmove I can't search for buy to let properties and so I'm not sure if this is the best marketing strategy.

    There does appear to be some companies in London, but the property i own is in West Yorkshire.

    I would really appreciate some advice on how best to sell the house with tenant.

    Thanks

    I personally wouldn't sell yet. If you have a tenant who has a rolling 6 month contract then you have an income and probably a reasonable yield. Most people sell when they can't get and don't have a tenant. You may be able to get an even longer term contract for say 1 year or even more. But if not you could put the property on the web rightmove is a good website as you can look up what's in your area and get an idea of prices. Also primelocation is a major site used. Try them I'm sure the commission isn't ridiculous.
