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.

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.
