    To some the fees of letting agents Edinburgh is worth it because these agents save a lot of time and effort of the property owners. On the other hand, some people consider hiring an agent inappropriate.

    Well, it all depends on the following things:

    1)How much you value your time 

    If you work day and night and don’t have enough time to look for tenants and to negotiate with them over rent, it is best to hire letting agents. They can take all your stress and look for a suitable tenant for your house or apartment while taking care of your property at the same time.

    2)How much value the does agent add to your business

    Many good letting agents are known to add more value to your property than merely collecting the rent and finding a tenant. They also go for regular inspections for identifying problems with tenant and property. They even arrange for repairs and maintenance of the property. 

    3) What are your personal preferences

    My personal choice is to outsource and let the agents handle the nitty-gritty work, while I can focus on my own business without worrying about my property.
