Demand creates opportunities for new landlords

As soaring house prices continue to push up the average buying age, more and more people are looking to rent for longer.

No. 1004 from our magazine|2 min read| Published in Lettings on 1 April 2022 by our Marketing Team

This squeeze on supply has resulted in the average rent price rising throughout the UK. In London, rents have risen to £1,757 – 11.8% higher than in February 2021. *  

The imbalance between supply and demand means that the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks is now applying pressure on the Government to increase rental stock across the UK.  

Now is the perfect time for new landlords to enter the market and make a good return while providing homes to those who need them.  

Have you had a lettings valuation in the past? You may be surprised by how much your potential rental is worth now.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
