How to advertise your student let on Rightmove
In a busy market, the demand for student properties continues to grow. Even though the level of accommodation provided by universities is increasing there’s still a huge need for properties from private student landlords. According to estimates, the private sector supplies almost 90% of all student accommodation.
But just because there is a high demand doesn't mean you will automatically have hordes of students beating down your door. You still have to market your property. And your student let must stand out from all the others on the market. To do that you need to list it on Rightmove.
Why your student let needs to be on Rightmove
Students are tech savvy. Your property needs to be listed where your potential student tenants are searching for accommodation. And most students will be aware of Rightmove. They'll realise it's the biggest and most popular property portal in the UK. It's even more popular than Zoopla. Students know this. They are more likely to search for a property on Rightmove than any other website.

Such is the power of Rightmove the website will appear in the student's search results.
