The whole process can take just minutes: create your free account, load your property sale or rental advert using our intuitive form, supply us with the verification documents we need for our due diligence process and you're done.
Advertising your property for rent or sale in the right place to ensure a healthy amount of interest is one of the most important jobs an agent needs to do.
According to research by Rightmove around 97% of properties sold are seen first on the Internet. Newspaper ads and cards in estate agents' shop windows are effectively obsolete and certainly not worth paying thousands of pounds in extra fees for. Who now trudges around wearing out their shoe leather and using up their valuable time looking in windows when every property advert from every agent can be looked at from the comfort of their own chair?
If you're a landlord an empty void property costs you money, eventually leading to desperation and the act of letting it to anyone who shows interest in being a tenant, regardless of their suitability. You can then end up with a tenanted property with no rent coming in, which is much worse than having an empty property with no rent coming in! We help you to break this cycle by putting your property in front of a pool of potential tenants that newspaper and other forms of traditional landlord advertising could never reach. All letting agents can and do offer this service, but most charge hundreds of pounds for it, whereas we charge an amount more commensurate with the amount of work involved.
We advertise property for sale and property for rent on various websites, including Rightmove.co.uk, Primelocation.com, Zoopla.co.uk, NeedaProperty.co.uk, The Times, The Sun, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Independent, The Telegraph, This Is, Homes 24, MSN, The London Evening Standard, and Homes & Property, ensuring maximum exposure.
The vast majority of enquiries come from just 3 sites: Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation.
We can handle email and telephone enquiries for your property 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. During the week our staff answer the phones from 8am to 8pm and 'Jenny', our sophisticated digital receptionist covers from 8pm to 8am. At weekends the staff work 9am to 4pm on Saturday and Jenny covers the rest of the time. Jenny is never sick, never late, never takes a tea break and never has a day off, ensuring that even if someone calls or emails about your property at 2am on New Year's Day they will get an answer and the information that they need. Jenny also offers supplemental cover during office hours to ensure that there is no queueing in the event of a sudden glut of calls.
We supply the leads from prospective tenants or buyers - you then choose how to progress these enquiries from that point on (arrange viewings, reject the applicant as unsuitable, etc). We are always available for further help and advice and can offer the whole suite of estate and letting agency services, such as negotiations, conveyancing, credit checks, referencing, rent guarantee insurance, landlords buildings insurance and so on.
Some online agents offer a 'free' service then sting you or your tenant with huge costs later on - we don't! Our price starts from just £129 for sale properties and £59 for rental properties with no strings attached.
No onerous 'sole agency' contract, no hidden clauses, no tie-ins to further services - we are simply providing a straightforward estate agency service to you. Of course if you want more services from us - credit checks, gas safety tests, EPCs etc, we're happy to oblige, but these are all totally optional with no pressure to take any of them.
Don't just take our word for it
I have used Visum to sell 10 of my BTL portfolio properties, some I sold on the same day! Very impressive, get your house priced correctly and they will get it sold in no time, keep it up Visum.
My son told me about Visum, being of a more traditional generation I was dubious to start with but I sold my house in Milton Keynes in 24 hours at full asking price, truly converted and impressed and forever thankful - we saved a small fortune.
I am quite happy and capable to manage my rental apartment, I just needed help sourcing and vetting tenants - Visum took care of all this for me, totally effortless.
Just wanted to say how impressed we've been with Visum. We used you for the first time last week as we had a property to rent (ref 15213). The Visum website was probably one of the easiest ones we've used (no irritating pop ups and ads. slowing it down, etc.) and we started getting responses within an hour of the ad going live - three days later I've not got a tenant. Couldn't recommend you enough.
Hi ... I have let my property within 24 hours (wow) ...
I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with your service so far - your website is excellent, you lead new users step-by step through the processes and the whole experience is quick and easy. I've had far more trouble trying to sell things on ebay!
This flat is now let. I’d like to thank you for your excellent service. The response has been fantastic and the quality of prospects very high. I will certainly use you again and recommend you to others.
I must say your website is one of the easiest to navigate! Picture/documentation uploads are so quick! Customer service replies brilliant! Keep up the good work!!!
Hi, just a line to thank you for your help in my recent letting of the above - keep up the good work - your efforts are very much appreciated.
Thank you for all your assistance - we are very happy to have found such good tenants with your help. We have never used it before but would be interested to see a quote for rent guarantee insurance.

Many thanks for the super-quick response - very impressive customer service, and much appreciated.
I have to say I have been most impressed with the service from all of you at Visum, I will definitely be using you again and recommending you.Amy Evans
I have dealt with several local agents and for £500 plus, they have done far less work and taken much longer to respond to me when I have had a query. Due to the actions of your staff, I have a tenant moving in the day after my current tenant moves out.
We received a steady stream of referrals and contacts from potential tenants including in the evenings and at weekends. After a number of viewings and applications for the tenancy we selected an ideal tenant who moves in shortly. We will certainly be back to advertise our residential property with you again as soon as we have availability.
I lost count, but we must have had around 30 enquiries, resulting in us having a choice of several very nice tenants in the end. Your advice too, has been most helpful, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other landlords.
We have been very impressed with your service and have another property to sell in the coming months and would have no hesitation in using Visum again or recommending your company to our friends.
Once again thank you for all your support and we will I am sure use you again in the future.
Just emailing to say a big thankyou to your website, i registered on Tuesday afternoon, the site was informative and easily navigated, the follow-up indentity checks were quick and reassuring and my advert was Live the following morning. By 11am Wednesday I had my first enquiry and the tenant signed up on viewing later that day - amazing considering I had been advertising with local estate agents (asking a months rent to find a tenant) for 3 weeks without a sniff... Happy Landlord..
Just wanted to say, am delighted with your service - easy to use, non-intrusive, obviously you try to sell extra services but that's managed in a supportive non-aggressive way.
I found your service better than iigloo and the other company that replaced them as the enquiries were referred a lot faster.
Could I just say that my experience of your service has been excellent, with prompt and professional responses and action. I have already recommended Visum to two colleagues. I shall be selling another property next Spring and will come straight back to you.
Thanks to all the team, epecially Mike for his patience with my many enquiries!
I have been very happy with your service and the responses that I have had I will be sure to tell other landlord of your site, many thanks again
