Demand for high class short term lets from professional business executives and senior hospital staff together with an innovative approach to property management is adding up to growth and jobs for Newcastle-under-Lyme based HMO Property Management.
Company owner Matt Hubbard and Investment Lettings Manager James Bladen are looking for new good quality properties following a surge in demand from hospital consultants and business professionals looking for superior accommodation across North Staffordshire.
Their latest development in Hartshill reflects the luxury of a chic boutique hotel, with well-designed en-suite bedrooms and a high specification kitchen.
Success has led to HMO Property Management making its own move into offices at the new Summit Business Centre, Water Street, Newcastle, and seen the company’s staff expand to a five-strong team.
Matt said: “HMO Property Management was formed when, as a property investor, I knew that I had to find a way of providing excellent standards of management for my own portfolio. In common with others who have grown a property portfolio, I have other business interests and I needed a management solution. I founded the company to meet the high management standards I wanted for my properties and to offer those service levels to other investors.”
HMO Property Management has its own property portfolio but also offers services and advice to other landlords. Rooms are marketed to tenants under the name Rent That Room.
James, an experienced property manager, brought in to manage the business, said: “We currently manage around 300 service rooms and many of these are of a very high standard. We believe that we have turned the whole image of the rental sector on its heads. At our new Hartshill Road development, a typical tenant would be a hospital medic earning up to £70,000 a year and looking for a 12-month luxury letting experience. All the fixtures and fittings are of a hi-spec and there’s cool modern art on the walls.
“We also house many executives coming to work in the city and we are providing them with a top quality living experience of a standard they would find in a boutique hotel. Typically, they may use their Stoke-on-Trent property five days a week and go home at weekends. They gain because everything is paid for on one bill such as utilities and we have a 24/7 helpline for tenants.”
James said HMO Property Management were now looking for more investors, whether they be local people who may have inherited a home or property investors from throughout the UK.
“We know the local market and can give them an insight from the perspective of investors as well as a management agency. The best time to contact us is when an investor is searching for property before an owner has done any work on a home as we can give a full consultancy service as to what will work in each area of Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent.”
The growing HMO Property Management team consists of Matt, James, Alex Burke, Lettings Executive, Charlie Bergius, Property Manager and Dan Gardner, Tenancy and Finance Manager.
