Despite the buoyancy of the rental market, this is highly likely to create a slight dip in income, and delays in renting as has been the case in the past. A delay of one or two months in finding a tenant obviously impacts on the year’s income, whilst not reducing the outgoings at all. Taking a drop in rental revenue to assure a tenancy and a variety of other mistakes that can be made due to concern about securing a tenant very often prove to be far more costly than taking steps to ensure this does not happen. The increase in available rental units will also impact on existing properties, so even landlords with good tenants at the moment should be considering whether they need to freshen up their properties and make them more appealing.
The savvy landlord should be looking at making his property stand out from the others. Seekers pride themselves on offering Property Solutions, and our online furniture store, Furniture Solutions has become a main provider of furniture to our own landlords and many other agents in Gibraltar.

We have experience in full ‘Turn Key’ furniture solutions for Landlords, although many of our clients have also bought items for their own homes. We have even fully furnished a Penthouse as a wedding present, including a Swarovski crystalled Chesterfield in the living room, and are currently in the process of providing furniture, textiles and design ideas for one of our clients’ who has just finished refurbishing a town house in the South District as a personal residence. Our clients include Interior Designers as well as other Estate Agents, Landlords and homeowners.
www.furnituregibraltar.com offers in excess of 1500 items, with prices and dimensions, and to back it up we have access to numerous other suppliers’ Trade Sites and catalogues, so once we have established the style and price range our clients desire we can offer other suggestions based on those requirements.

We can do as much, or as little, of the work as you require, from one piece of furniture to the entire property, and down to the last tea spoon should you require.
