We are very pleased to announce a new amazing deal for Guild members with upad.co.uk. They are offering Guild members a 50% discount allowing you to advertise your property on all the major portals via upad.co.uk. The normal rate is £99.00 + VAT but Guild members can get exactly the same product through our own dedicated system for £49.50 + VAT.

They advertise your property on almost a thousand portals but the most important ones you will be interested in are Rightmove, Primelocation, Zoopla, Globrix, Gumtree and Findaproperty.com.

As most of you know we are landlords as well as running the Guild and we have used upad to let many of our properties recently and at this new rate, will continue to do so. Previously, we relied on the local newspaper but this has slowly over the last couple of years produced slightly less calls and also they have major reliability issues in that often the advert didn’t appear or was incorrectly worded etc. We have found advertising on the internet allows much greater flexibility than the paper too because if we have over valued a property (which is quite rare for us) we can immediately change the rental amount accordingly to increase calls.

We always say that the only services we ever provide (e.g. buildings insurance, EPC’s, tenant vetting etc.) are only things that we use personally on our properties. The reason we want the new upad service to work is because we believe it will attract more new membership because of the massive savings members gain. A member only needs use upad twice in a year and they have instantly saved almost our annual membership fee!

I would urge you to also check out our article about photographs when advertising on-line here.

Full details of the service is available here and I hope you will consider trying it.
