Staycation demand allows holiday let owners to cash in

Published in Lettings on 7 October 2021 by our Marketing Team

In the first half of 2021, 1,401 holiday let companies were incorporated, which was an increase of 83% on the previous year and a 119% increase on the year prior to that.

 
Holidaymakers have traded flights to Europe and destinations further afield for summer holiday destinations in the UK, such as Cornwall, Dorset, Devon and the Lake District.
 
Despite the rising prices of these destinations and limited availability, hospitality businesses who suffered as a result of lockdown are now enjoying a huge demand for UK holiday accommodation.
 
It has been highlighted that this is not just a summer trend, as bookings have continued to soar into the autumn and winter periods, with it looking less and less likely for many tourists to catch some sun before the end of the year and travel hassle-free.
 
What locations are the most appealing to the public?
 
In terms of location, it’s not all about major city breaks, with holidaymakers showing as much interest in scenic, countryside destinations.
 
The rising popularity of UK staycations provides a perfect solution for frustrated Brits wanting to get away, as well as investors looking for new options to expand their portfolios.

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.
