The view of most estate agents is that house prices will remain static during 2013. A combination of restricted mortgages, lower transaction volumes and fewer homes being built means we will see a greater demand for rental homes.
As in 2012, we are still seeing demand outstrip supply in many areas of Sheffield. We have had many examples over the last year of properties we have rented to excellent tenants being let, referenced and the tenancy agreement signed within seven days. In more popular areas demand is so high that the prospective tenant may offer a higher rent than asked or pay several months in advance.
So for landlords Hunters have everything wrapped up under one roof, offering a tailored service to suit all needs.
It may be you only need your property advertised and are confident to do the rest. Around 80% of all rental leads come from online and telephone inquiries and Hunters use Rightmove, Zoopla, Find a Property.com and several more portals.
We will advertise your property in the Sheffield Property Telegraph. Our distinctive Hunters TO LET boards also produce many inquiries. Let only or fully managed, we offer a comprehensive service which we can tailor to your needs.
