A popular face returns to Stroud to set up her own business

Despite the property market being under increasing pressure in a triple dip recession, lettings are up! So now couldn’t be a better time for letting properties and waiting for a more lucrative time to sell.

With ever growing pressures on first time buyers to raise hefty deposits, many choose to rent and with Sophie Chinn, Stroud’s well-loved letting aAgent, returning to letting management after the birth of her child, landlords and tenants can be sure that they will have all the support they need to help make their housing transition simple and easy at realistic prices.

Sophie says, “It’s hard to sell property right now, so renting or letting is a great option. Landlords can rent out their property and ride out the tough times. People who find themselves struggling to get on the property ladder can live in a lovely home that perhaps they couldn’t otherwise afford. To many tenants, renting may seem like a waste of money, however, when considering what one may pay out on average repairs on a family home, the savings speak for themselves. I think the tides have turned with regards to the attitudes towards letting and renting. Renting is accepted as the norm as it is accessible. There will never be a short fall of people looking to rent and there will always be a market for what we do.”

Best known for her regular appearance in the local papers, Sophie’s return to the lettings market has been greatly anticipated. The mum of one has gained recognition for her contribution to Stroud’s property market by being voted one of the top 30 most influential people in Stroud and the Five Valleys, as well as being a two-time finalist in 2011 Stroud Life Business Awards.

Her new venture, Woods Properties, covers Stroud and the surrounding district. She offers a comprehensive and highly professional service to suit almost any budget. With over eight years’ experience in the lettings industry, Sophie hopes to grow her local business and fight back at the recession. It is Woods Properties drive to bring a greater level of professionalism to the lettings sector to drive out bad landlords and poor attitudes of renters, ultimately making renting safer for all.

Sophie understands the needs of both landlords and tenants and aims to offer an honest, no fuss service, giving the peace of mind and the assurance needed when letting out a home. As a business owner, Sophie has youth, charisma and knowledge on her side and she is recruiting landlords and tenants now.
