A lady in the know Tuesday 17 June 2008 PDF Print A Lady in the Know! Industry expert willing to discuss the short-term letting business with the press Established in 1997, Dickins are specialists in short-term lets and the company currently lets over 250 properties during the festival period and is continually expanding their portfolio. In 2006 the company expanded to offer short-term lets all year round. Founder Louise Dickins advises that in the current financial climate, home-owners can maximise on income potential by letting their property during the Edinburgh Festival and making the most of the rent-a-room allowance. The company are also seeing an increase in short-term lets as a direct result of 'chain-breakers' in the housing market; a short-term let can be a sensible option as their contracts are drawn up on a 28-day basis. Louise is also willing to discuss the advantages of short-term letting in relation to mortgages. In 1997 she established the property letting company Dickins and initially only let properties during the Edinburgh Festival, but the company quickly established a solid reputation and in 2006, the company expanded to offer short-term lets all year round. The company currently lets over 250 properties during the festival period and is continually expanding their portfolio. Louise also operates Dickins Investments, established to provide a comprehensive service from acquiring, redeveloping, refurbishing and interior design, to everything involved with letting the property through their sister company Dickins. With her expert knowledge of the Edinburgh residential property sales and rental market gained from over 10 years' experience, Dickins Investments ensure that buyers acquire a perfect investment property. Due to their strong talents in interior design and refurbishment projects they have achieved an excellent reputation for design work. www.dickins.co.uk Contact: Su Hesketh, Crimson Edge PR, 11 Dean Park Mews, Edinburgh, EH4 1EE Tel: 0131 311 7050 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Crimson Edge PR Ltd in the following categories: Men's Interest, Home & Garden, Women's Interest & Beauty, Travel, Construction & Property, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
