‘To Let’ boards are similar in function to ‘For Sale’ boards, with a slightly different demographic and properties. The most common types of board for ‘To Let’ boards are Flag Boards, V-Boards and T-Boards depending on the type of property.
Most letting properties are terraced and so the ideal board to use for this would be a Flag Board or a V-Board.
Flag Boards can be erected just next to the property, giving an aesthetic of projecting from the wall and are also perfect to use for ‘To Let’ properties with no front garden. V-Boards can be erected onto a wall or window and can be seen by people further away due to their height advantage over other boards.
Our V-boards and Flag Boards are created from 1 sheet of 6mm heavyweight Correx which is printed double-sided for Flag boards and scored in three positions for V-Boards to create the V-shape and the tabs for erecting to a window or wall.
With detached properties or properties or properties with front gardens, a T-Board is best suited, being the strongest of the residential board options, and one of the most striking boards to use.
Our T-Boards are created using two sheets of 4mm Correx which are then heat-welded on the edges to produce a high-quality, durable centre post board. We use our exclusive ‘grey back’ Correx sheet as this prevents any show-through of the post in the middle, even in the strongest sunlight.
Both types of board go through our careful design, manufacture and installation process, ensuring that they are completed to the highest standard and to your requirements. With over 30 years’ experience in market signage, we understand how to translate your business, brand, logo or ideas onto an effective sign that makes your property - or properties - stand out from the rest.
All of our boards go through a UV drying process which after print ensures the best possible bond between the inks and the Correx, making them highly durable, even in the harshest elements.
“To Let” Boards
When you think of properties for sale or rent, the infamous “To Let” board is the first thing that comes to mind. Despite the rise in online marketing and virtual home tours, the to let board is by far the most efficient way of marketing any property. If you are an estate agent working in the UK, then you should consider installing “to let” boards on available properties to ensure you reach a wider market.
“To Let” Boards for Marketing
The “To Let” board serves as a great way of marketing property. The most important reason why using these boards is important is because they are easily recognised by everyone.
Since word of mouth serves as a great form of advertisement for real estate, putting up “to let” boards will help make more people aware whenever a property is available. Local residents and neighbours will become aware that there is an available property nearby, and they are likely to let other people know of the opportunity to move into their neighborhood.
Another reason why “to let” boards serve as effective methods of marketing is because they attract potential clients who may be driving past the property. While people who simply pass by your property may not have the intention of buying or renting, it is still a possibility that they become interested once they see the “to let” board. For real estate agents, putting up these boards simply means getting a wider reach on the target market.
“To Let” boards also appeal to any relocators or pre-viewers who are simply visiting areas before contacting any real estate agencies to find a home for themselves. These people can easily become your clients if your property attracts them and if you have displayed your contact information through the “to let” board.
Designing the “To Let” Board
Many real estate agents make the mistake of designing “to let” boards that contain too much information. Remember that the main purpose of this board is to inform people that a certain property is available for rent. The information on the “to let” board should be clear and easy to read from a distance.
While you may be tempted to include certain details about the property on the “to let” board, it is advised to just keep it simple. If a potential client is interested in the property, they will reach out to you for a property viewing.
The overall design of the “to let” board should be simple yet attractive. Most real estate agencies tend to opt for solid coloured backgrounds with bold letters to display important information regarding their services.
