    Perhaps the cat could rent the flat.

    What happened with this did you get more interest/viewings?

    Or have you just bought a cat?

    Except ... ahem.

    I have mine because it's easier to feed than a real one.

    And I have a tenant with 9 dogs and need a break.

    Oli.
    Mine is to remind me to buy food for the ferrets.

    Because cats rule the internet.

    Ah. Thanks. I clearly need to line Millie up in front of the fotoapparat then!

    Thank you ML.

    Yes, I agree. But those are a feature of having the advertising done by Visum and is part of the template you are given to fill in. Even the entries you can choose are pre-chosen, you just tick the applicable ones on a list.

    Like the new ad.

    The weak spot is the bullet point list at the top.

    Much better esp. photos of the living room and the new bedroom photo.

    Guys,

    Lots more great answers. Thanks to everyone who has provided such useful feedback.

    I have tried to take into account the feedback I have had here. There is now a floorplan and each room has dimensions listed as well as area. I have started again from scratch with the wording of the advert, with each room listed separately (I followed your excellent post Westminster - thanks again; it's amazing how much more you can find to say when you think about each room in turn!) There is now a lot more detail, as well as minor things like post and caretaker and I've tried to bring the 'secure' aspect out a little more as well. Many thanks to everyone who suggested I should emphasise the storage aspect - I have done so, with a photo of the cupboard in question.

    I've updated the advert with some new photos, taken with a wider angle lens and with a different colour tone to them. You can follow the link in the first post, but I suspect it will take 12-24 hours before the changes are updated on the portals. I've also dropped the price a little more - now at £310 a week. I also updated the "Semi-furnished" tag to "Negotiable".

    The flat doesn't have a parking space. It is the cheapest two-bedroom flat in the development, although it doesn't have a balcony. (The one that is listed with two bathrooms is incorrectly listed - there are no two-bedroom flats in the block.)

    The furniture hasn't been changed, and I hear all the comments about it. However I stick by the notion that it's pretty much as you would expect for a flat of this type; it's not a luxury flat, and has let twice before without a problem with the same furniture in it. (Please don't read this as being dismissive of the advice given - it was all appreciated).

    I'd suggest that it now has one of the best adverts for a two-bedroom flat in that development AND is the cheapest. I'll keep this thread updated with progress - and please do feel free to offer feedback on the updated advert as well (I'll be genuinely interested to see what you make of the revisions).

    Thanks again.


    Oli.
