Hi all,

I was hoping for some advice from people that might have been in a similar situation before.

I live in a lovely 2 bed 2 bath flat in Shad Thames, and I'm going abroad for 6 months in March. I'm trying to rent out my flat during that period, and have contacted a couple of agents. The agents seem to be very slow in bringing forward potential tenants. I have put it on gumtree and spareroom also, but I think the price level is probably a little out of most sharers' budget.

My question is can anyone suggest another way of marketing it, or an agent that is particularly good at short-term rentals?

Just want to make sure my flat is in good hands while I'm away.

Many thanks!

Most agents and indeed tenants are looking for 12 month rentals. The quickest way to rent it would be to drop the price by 25%.
