Surge in market activity as online property searches soar

Head of Marketing Steve Lees said:

“July traditionally marks the start of the annual summer slowdown, but users have bucked this trend, with the three months to October the busiest we’ve seen so far this year for sales and lettings.

“However, the latest figures show that the rental market is far more active with demand greater than ever. Our agents offering lettings are reporting that demand continues to outstrip supply, with landlords able to increasingly let back-to-back, avoiding empty periods. In the face of fierce competition from would-be tenants, it’s now more important than ever for customers looking to rent to stay one step ahead. Keeping in regular contact with local estate agents in your area will put you at the front of the queue and having a deposit ready is vital.”
