It is still not common practice for Oxford letting agents to use floor plans in their marketing. Whilst Oxford used to be a predominantly FURNISHED marketplace, since the removal of the wear and tear allowance, more and more UNFURNISHED properties are being let.
At Nicholas Jones Residential, we always produce a floor plan for each property. As the majority of potential tenants look online first and often other agents' photography may make the property look bigger than it really is, a floor plan will help to avoid any misunderstandings.
This also means that viewings are more likely to be successful as potential tenants have accurate information about the sizes and layouts of each room. They may have already started planning where the sofa could go and which room would be the best for their child etc and this means they are well on their way to wanting the property.
Together with an informative and accurate description, attractive and well-staged photography, a floorplan is an essential part of marketing a property to let.
