If you are a landlord especially with a portfolio of properties then you probably have vacant properties that are losing money but looking for used second hand stoves for sale to enhance them will be money well spent.
With everyone trying to save on their bills a big reduction in the gas or electricity bill is attractive to potential tenants but putting in place products or improvements to facilitate this for a property you do not live in can be expensive and seen as a waste of money.
In my view it isn’t as these improvements will help you command more rent and keep your properties occupied as they are big selling points. A woodburner will not only add a fantastic feature to a room but the cost of running them is over half that of a gas or electric fire so they are a real USP for renting out your property.
I began my search for used second hand stoves for sale in the local shop
I have a few properties and when I had the idea to look for used second hand stoves for sale I started at a woodburner shop in my local village. He has a couple that he had part exchanged against new ones people had bought but there was not a great deal of choice. He could though fit it for me and kindly offered to survey the property to suggest stove sizes and positioning. I had agreed to get it done with him and he suggested going online to get the choice and quality I was looking for. A quick look on eBay and I was spoilt for choice there were lots out there so I narrowed my search with the size I as looking for. I found a few and as there was a day or more before the auction ended I looked for reviews and feedback on the stoves I was considering. This was a good idea as a couple I had picked out were overpriced and had terrible reviews there was one though that had consistently good reviews and when I wen onto the brands website it was clear they were a good company so I started to bid.
Bidding on used second hand stoves for sale and getting it fitted
This is where the real fun begins, I am used to auctions as I attend property ones all the time so I knew the rules, have a budget in mind and stick to it. Luckily for me there were a couple of bidders but thy seemed to have just put in a cheeky bid as when I bid for the first time they didn’t counter bid there was one challenge right at the death but I won’t reveal my secret to success for winning bids and indeed I had bought my first second hand wood burner.
I went back to the shop in the village and booked in the installation and even the guy fitting said going down the used second hand stoves for sale route is a great way to buy a burner. http://www.bigskystoveandhearth.com
