In June 2012 just 5.71 per cent of properties listed included a floor plan, while the figure in June 2015 had risen almost threefold to 16.08 per cent.These findings were further supported in recent research among sellers and landlords by Rightmove, in which 43 per cent of landlords said that they would not instruct an agent if they did not provide a floor plan. Furthermore, the same research revealed that many tenants rank the ability to view floor plans as a priority.Rightmove report that many tenants rank the ability to view floor plans as more important than main image and summary text and second only to a selection of images for the property.Brian Farrell (left), Director of Metropix, said: “The Rightmove research tells us that tenants might completely ignore a property without a floor plan so I am not altogether surprised that we have seen such a strong level of growth in the use of floor plans in the rental market. After all the need to view the individual layout of a property, often for purely practical reasons such as furniture layout, is equally important for a tenant as it is a purchaser.”“From the commercial perspective, the lettings business is highly competitive and a marketing tool such as a floor plan that strengthens an agent’s offering by making the property more visually appealing to tenants and landlords is crucial, therefore I fully expect this growth to continue on an upward trajectory,” he added.South East-based Romansis among the many agents that now use floor plans to market their rental properties, with the firm’s Managing Director, Peter Fuller, identifying floor plans as a forming an “important” part in the way Romans “market and present a property to landlords and tenants.”He commented, “While the Metropix findings show floor plan usage in the rental market has grown substantially, in our experience providing a floor plan is standard practice for rental properties and is equally important as providing good quality images so I can’t think of too many reasons why an agent would opt not to provide one.“After all floor plans have been commonplace in the sale of properties for years so why should rental be any different when tenants still have all of the same requirements.”Metropix Brian Farrell floor plans floorplans 2015-08-10The Negotiator Related articles Client accounting firm honoured with Queen’s Award29th April 2021 Give conveyancers up-front property information earlier, Sprift urges agents15th April 2021 Leading inventories service and Reapit integrate for ‘faster check-outs’9th April 2021What’s your opinion?

With Syracuse’s (4-7, 2-5 Atlantic Coast) final game of the regular season against Pittsburgh (7-4, 4-3) coming Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in Pittsburgh, the Orange needs some help to make a bowl game.Here’s a step-by-step path for SU to make one:Syracuse MUST beat Pittsburgh.The Orange can’t make a bowl at 4-8, but it can at 5-7. To make the rest of this list possible, it must win Saturday at Heinz Field. With Zack Mahoney likely starting at quarterback, SU’s odds aren’t terrific. Betting lines started at the beginning of the week with the Orange as 23.5-point underdogs.There are 15 remaining bowl spots. Those can’t be filled when games finish up early Sunday morning.Currently, there’s exactly 13 five-win teams playing Saturday. Syracuse needs fewer than 15 to qualify for a bowl, forcing bowl games to choose from 5-7 teams to fill the remaining few spots of the 80 in total.Here’s a list of the five-win teams:AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFive-win team (future opponents)Southern Methodist (vs. Navy)Boston College (at Wake Forest)Texas (vs. TCU)Indiana (vs. Purdue)Maryland (vs. Rutgers)Northwestern (vs. Illinois)Texas San Antonio (vs. Charlotte)North Texas (at Texas El Paso)Arizona State (at Arizona)Vanderbilt (vs. Tennessee)Ole Miss (vs. Mississippi State)Hawaii (vs. Massachusetts)South Alabama (at Idaho, vs. New Mexico State)SMU, Boston College and Vanderbilt all play teams who have already become bowl eligible. If each team loses, they each become 5-7.One team not on this list, Army, is 6-5, but hasn’t qualified because it has two wins over FCS opponents. It faces Navy on Dec. 10, and a win would make Army bowl eligible. In the case that not enough teams get to six wins, Army would be considered ahead of all five-win teams.Hawaii plays 13 games in 2016 and is currently 5-7. A win gives it precedence over 5-7 teams, but doesn’t make the Rainbow Warriors bowl eligible. A loss eliminates them from bowl contention. They play 2-9 Massachusetts on Saturday at 11 p.m.Syracuse’s academic progress rate has to rank as one of the top few 5-7 teams.Among the teams with five wins, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, North Texas, Boston College, Indiana and Maryland are all ranked ahead of Syracuse in terms of APR. Two four-win teams — Duke and Notre Dame — also have higher APR scores than the Orange. Each team with five wins will get in ahead of Syracuse with a win or loss while the four-win teams each needs a win to then go head-to-head in APR score with Syracuse.Duke faces Miami (7-4) in Florida and Notre Dame has to travel to the Los Angeles Coliseum to face No. 12 USC (8-3).Assuming all 5-6 teams win or lose as expected, Indiana, Maryland, Northwestern, UTSA, UNT, Arizona State, Ole Miss, TCU and South Alabama (at 5-5 the Jaguars face 6-4 Idaho and 3-7 New Mexico to finish the season) should all get in with six wins.After those nine teams, Army would qualify and Hawaii would also qualify with a win over Massachusetts. B.C. and Vanderbilt then would be the top two teams in terms of APR. Assuming Syracuse beats Pittsburgh, which is a relatively big assumption, it would be the next team in as long as both Duke and Notre Dame lose. The Orange could still have one of those two teams win and get in. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 25, 2016 at 12:39 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati
