Shropshire rental property in strong demand

One of the busiest months on record means a Shropshire letting agent is now seeking new housing stock.

Balfours letting agent, Charlotte George MARLA, says properties of all shapes and sizes have flown off the books during September. She says: “August is traditionally a month where people want to move for schools and jobs, but the demand just kept going in September making it exceptionally busy across the full range of homes.”

Larger properties included a period house and a farm house, each with six bedrooms and each snapped up very quickly. “We have had just as much demand for one and two bed flats, bungalows, cottages, barn conversions and modern houses which have all been moving quickly.”

She says Shropshire and border county residents continue to face competition for rented accommodation from people moving into the area, from throughout the UK and abroad.

“Last month we had one couple moving back from New Zealand and taking a tenancy. Block visits for an estate property yielded a high level of viewings, very positive feedback and a number of applications for that property. This delighted the landlord giving a good choice of tenants and achieving the full rental value,” Charlotte explains.

According to Charlotte October is continuing the trend with a significant number of new instructions boding well for landlords and tenants. For more information call Charlotte on 01743 277069.
