Property Portals (Extensive website marketing on all major web portals)
Tenants when looking for commercial space use the internet, so you need to be sure that your property is found quickly and promoted effectively.
You need an agent that has a great website and advertises on the main property portals. This is how buyers are directed to your property when they search online using the search engines such as Google, Ask Jeeves, Excite or Yahoo.
The top market-leading property websites are Rightmove.co.uk and OntheMarket.
Rightmove Statistic “Over a million commercial searches are conducted each month on Rightmove - you can search for commercial property to let by region, city, town or post code and use our target search to further refine your results by size, tenure, building type and price helping you find the right property fast.”
QR Codes (Quick Response Codes
Quick Response codes, or QR codes for short, are just like the barcodes that you see on products in your local supermarket, but are square in shape and much more powerful.
Unlike standard barcodes, they can store information like website addresses, and can be scanned by customers with smart phone’s, taking them straight through to the relevant page on our website.
Here at Clear Properties we always aim to be at the forefront of technology and we are now promoting the use of QR codes in our internet advertising, brochures, news paper and shop window displays, allowing customers to instantly access specific property information 24/7 from their smart phone.
This allows the person to forward the details of your property easily to their friend, colleague or family members, who are the potential tenant.
This is just another example of how we are always trying new ways to market and promote our properties.
Outstanding Customer Service
We pride ourselves in offering outstanding customer service – so much so that when a selection of our clients was asked by The Property Ombudsman what they thought of us, they gave us a 100% recommendation! Click here for their report.

Regular marketing reviews/updates
As one of our clients, you will be given regular updates on how your property is performing. You are also free to contact us at any time to discuss the progress of your property sale.
Viewing feedback and progress reports
Too many agencies only communicate good news! That’s easy! Good agents are in frequent contact with their clients and have the integrity to advise if anything needs to be done to improve your chances of letting your property.
If an agent is not enthusiastic about your property – don’t instruct them. A positive approach to selling your home is essential if buyers are to be inspired into buying your home.
We are able to offer legal advice through our panel of local commercial solicitors.
It is therefore of paramount importance that if you need legal advice you choose a company that has a good track record and is both efficient and good value for money.
If you need a quote specifically tailored to your requirements, feel free to contact us on 0113 2613000 or pop in to our office.
The pace of change in technology has never been faster, and the effect this is having on the house buying and selling process is immense. Gone are the days where placing an advert in a local paper constituted ‘effective marketing’. In fact it is no accident that most of the digital aspects to property marketing are now owned by publishing and newspaper groups!
At Clear Properties we recognise and embrace this change with enthusiasm whilst retaining our commitment to offering a personal and individual service.

- Modern Estate Agency, Traditional Values
The explosion in the social networking medium over the past few years has been enormous, with names such as Facebook and Twitter leading the way.
Whilst you may not necessarily have an account with these sites, or indeed can be bothered with them, the fact is that in this digital age they play an ever increasing part in how people communicate with each other. When it comes to properties for sale or to let this is no exception.
Clear Properties have our own Facebook & Twitter accounts which enable us to get your property out there to a much wider audience than many other Estate Agents, putting us at the cutting edge of Social Networking your property.
As part of our membership of The Guild of Property Professionals, we have our own Web TV channel. This enables us to promote not only our services, but also our properties. The use of videoettes offers another dynamic way to market your property, so for a small extra charge, we can bring your property to life with professional narration and presentation.
As with our Web TV channel, You Tube allows us to market properties in a way that perhaps appeals more to the younger or Internet savvy market. Using the videoettes that are available for a small extra cost to all of our clients, we can bring your property to life in a way that a normal brochure cannot.
Smart Phones & Tablets
The use of smart phones and tablets is on the increase, with most people nowadays possessing at least one of these mobile devices.
This presents another great opportunity for us to market your property via this medium. To do this we use something called QR (Quick Response) codes. Your property will be given a unique code which is generated by our database, and provides those buyers with modern mobile devices the opportunity to scan the code and get your property details uploaded instantly to their device.
This is particularly useful out of hours or when on the move, as any potential tenant can simply look in our window, scan the code and get your details.
Clear Properties have, in conjunction with Apple, developed our own app for iPhones and iPads allowing those with these devices to keep in touch with all the latest properties we have on the market.
In the coming months we hope to have an app to cover Android and other devices too.
Modern Estate Agency, Traditional Values
Whilst it is true that the way properties are marketed has changed for ever, the more traditional approach still has a place. After all, selling is a person to person thing and no amount of technology can replace this.
At Clear Properties we pride ourselves on our personal service. Being available to talk things through with both buyers and sellers is a vitally important part of the business of selling properties. With this in mind we have a commitment to provide the following to all our sellers and buyers:
- We treat everyone in the way in which we would expect to be treated ourselves.
- Honesty and transparency in everything we do.
- We conduct our business in an ethical manner.
- We provide opportunities for employees to show initiative and gain rewards for their performance.
- We conduct our business with professionalism, and expert knowledge.
- To provide a positive atmosphere which encourages learning and self development
When you instruct Clear Properties to market your property we will make the necessary arrangements for our Commercial Energy Assessor to visit your property and conduct the survey and produce the EPC for you, if it is required.
