Technology and DSS Letting Agents
One of the easiest ways to get information in regards of the available DSS properties in an area is using the DSS letting agents. Different communities have different organizations of the agents in which they offer services on different terms, the traditional method of the agents is based on an office model, but with changes in technology there are different organizations of agents that are arising.
In most cases the agents usually rely on the landlord to provide them with a percentage of their yearly income based on the properties the agents provide tenants. The different agents offer different charges and have different conditions as well aiming it harder and more demanding for the landlord to make important decisions base on the availed services by the agents.
One of the influential developments in the DSS letting agents is the internet. It is both advantageous as well as disadvantageous to the agents. Using the internet the customers online usually have lots of choices to get services from and with the agents having established their websites to provide information to their members its quite hard on the agents to attract customers. Most of the agents established online usually charge lower fees as opposed to the official traditional agents mostly due to the fact that the internet has lots of competitors.
As opposed to the traditional method of working of the agents, the online system has provided the agents with the ability to expand their services covering a much wider area of locations. The agencies have thus expanded their business using the online resources since they cover larger area thus attracting more clients from different locations. The agents offer different services online too with the most common being email alerts of new offers in the DSS letting agents market. Being a registered member of an agent’s site might be the only way to get the alerts and in most cases this is free.
