Leasing agency helps tenants connect, online and off

Property & Construction

We’ve seen myriad sites recently that aim to help neighbours connect, whether targeting tenants and landlords, office workers in the same vicinity, or community members with stuff to share. Now, UK-based Yourshack offers leasing and house-share services with a focus on community socialization. Yourshack aims to help people in its community find the right property, give them the option to share, and offer the chance to join a vibrant social scene in and around Manchester. With a track record that includes managing more than 1,000 tenancies over the past 12 years, Yourshack is well-equipped to help clients find the best properties in the Manchester city centre for rent or share. More interesting, though, are Yourshack’s social efforts, including a free social membership program for clients, city discounts, a regular events guide and a rapidly growing Facebook group. Parties, activities and adventure weekends are all part of what Yourshack offers its tenants along with discounts throughout the city of Manchester via the Yourshack City Card. The result, according to the company, is to enable landlords to differentiate their properties, helping to fill them more quickly, reduce the need for price bargaining and encourage the likelihood of extended rental periods.
