Property entrepreneur Cristina Cornforth is expecting easy2let Manchester’s annual turnover to hit £500,000 just two years after launching.
easy2let Manchester is a franchise of Portsmouth-headquartered easy2let which is a residential property sourcing, letting and management business for landlords and investors.
Since 2014 Cristina has already established a portfolio of 50 residential units in properties in Oldham, Shaw, Blackely, Moston, Salford, Eccles, Partington and Altrincham.
For tenant sourcing, she works with the private rented market and local authorities in Greater Manchester.
During the next 12 months she plans to increase the size of the business by adding further properties throughout south Manchester, and is now actively seeking investors and landlords in this area.
She said: “Demand for rented properties from professional people and other tenants continues to rise, and my target for boosting the size of the business is based on a clear confidence that Greater Manchester’s attraction as a place to live and work is still very much on the upward curve.”
Cristina used crowdfunding providers The Funding Circle and Capital On Tap to secure the finance required to start up as holder of the Greater Manchester franchise.
