Soaring demand continues to push rent prices higher
According to a recent market report by a well-known property portal, the current demand for rental homes is a staggering 76% higher than during the same period between 2018 and 2021.
As demand continues to outweigh supply, we truly have a perfect storm that is, in turn, pushing up rent prices across the UK. *
Tenants can now expect to pay around £969 per month, which equates to an extra £744 per year compared to pre-pandemic prices.
With supply currently unable to meet demand, landlords are in a strong position and should remain so for the foreseeable future. Rental properties are only taking two weeks to let, making it easier than ever to attract the right tenant in a very short time frame.
Predictions show that rents will rise by 4.5% across the UK over the coming year, so if you’re thinking of letting your property, now is the perfect time to capitalise on the expected market growth.
