I am trying to rent out my 2 bed flat next to the Bricklayers Arms but things seem to be very slow on the rental front at the moment. Any comments on how other people have seen the rental market in the locality? Also who is the typical person renting in the area?
Feedback I have had to date from the agents has been that things are pretty slow, rents still weak and the area's main appeal is to students + young professionals / grads as it is still very much "up & coming"...
it's even slow in super reliable shad thames. worst in fact in 15years! for me anyway. those that can afford it are still buying rather than "miss out'' on the madly climbing prices plus there's loads of rentals to choose from. maybe you should sell before the crash?!
Both! With a couple of local agents as well as ads in loot, and a couple of websites. Flexible on price but problem is always getting the time to do private viewings.
Things seem very slow, all suggestions welcome! Thanks for the advice on selling Colin - reckon on balance its worth keeping hold of as viewing as lon term investment but clearly argument doesnt work if its empty!
