The peak of the lettings market is nearly here!
Although the lettings market over recent years has become inconsistent as compared with its historical trends, we are coming into the peak of the lettings market which is May -September. This trend has always been consistent due to two main reasons; that there is a huge influx of students that come into the market and that more properties come to the market at this point.
Let’s have a look at how can landlords make the most of this moment.
Once you are given notice by your tenants, it is crucial to get the timing right. We’ve found that putting the property on the market between 5-6 weeks prior to becoming available is the best time frame. Tenants searching for their new home will usually be giving their landlords 1-2 months notice so this way they can make quicker and more informed decisions.
Get the price right
Getting the most for your rental income is great noise to the ears, however it is paramount to get the asking price right. This will ensure you receive a good number of enquiries, have a choice of tenants and reduce any potential void periods.

If your property is tenanted ask your current tenants to tidy up so that the property looks appealing. Nothing worse that the sighting of awful underwear! This is beneficial to your current tenants as the quicker you find new tenants will result in less disturbance for them. Highlight this to them!
If the property is vacant, dress it up a little, give it some soul. Making the first impression a memorable impression for the good reasons is crucial.
