"...to be congratulated for their supreme efforts in finding a new tenant and making the apartment ready within 4 days from the departure of the previous tenants. No easy task. Their dedication and efficiency in making it happen was hugely impressive. And all I can do is write a review. It is rare to come across such a superb team, they should run the country. My grateful and heartfelt thanks to you and your team. Thank you...."
As the owner of a waterside property, you’re never going to be short of interest from tenants who would love nothing more than to live by the water.
We know this because we’ve specialised in nothing but waterside property for over 15 years. As a result, we’re perfectly placed to secure the best prices and take all the stress out of the process for you - whether you’re letting an investment property or a property that was once your own home.
We assign the properties we take on into one of three different categories, so we can give it the dedicated approach it needs:
- riverhomes prime: homes that front the water
- riverhomes lifestyle: homes that are a short walk away from the water
- riverhomes houseboats: if you have a houseboat and mooring to let, look at our dedicated houseboats section
So, how does riverhomes secure the ideal tenants at the best price for your waterside property?
Top tenants on tap
Every applicant who contacts riverhomes has come to us because they know how special it is to live by the water - and they’re willing to pay handsomely for the privilege.
Our applicants are affluent, discerning professionals and families: in short, exactly the type of person you would want taking care of your property.
In-depth riverside knowledge
Because we deal exclusively in property by the Thames, we know precisely how to market your property to appeal to tenants who are in love with the idea of a waterside lifestyle. We use stunning photographs and evocative descriptions to create a clamour for viewings, then use our detailed knowledge of your local area to explain why your property would be perfect for their needs.
What’s more, we know the details of the riverside property market like nobody else - meaning we can push for the highest possible rental price without risking aiming too high and leaving you with an empty property.
Don't just take our word for it...
Our award winning customer service is regularly recognised within the industry, and our 5-star rated reviews can be found on Trustpilot, Google Reviews and allAgents.
Long and short lets
We aim to find tenants who will take care of your property for years - but if you only want to rent out your property for a matter of months, we can help you with that too.
We’re in regular contact with our extensive network of corporate clients who are often looking to place employees for the length of a temporary contract or while they relocate to London. These can make excellent tenants, so only wanting a short let is no barrier to making the most of your home or your investment’s income potential.
Complete peace of mind
Letting a property comes with its fair share of red tape, but you can rest assured that we’re perfectly placed to guide you through the process with confidence and precision.
We're regulated by The Ombudsman for Estate Agents, and we ensure that you comply with your requirement to protect tenants’ deposits by registering them with the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) on your behalf.
