What are the key trends that you expect to see in Surrey in the coming months?
We would like to see many more landlords investing, to satisfy the never-ending demand for quality property to rent. We are encouraging all of our new and existing investor clients to actively invest, taking advantage of the drop in sales prices that occurred during the recession and before they rise again.
What excites you most about the area you currently work in?
We bring together landlords and tenants in Weybridge, Walton-on-Thames, Cobham, Esher and the surrounding locations, and some of the properties at the top end are spectacular. We feel passionate that we are able to offer a comprehensive service to anyone who contacts us.
Are there still bargains to be found in Surrey?
Yes, there are bargains to be had, although these are generally at the very top end of the property scale. Tenants looking at properties in the mid-range market, from 3,000 to 5,000 pcm, have little or no room for negotiation due to a shortage in this sector.
What would your top tip be for someone who is moving house?
If youre looking in the residential letting market and you think you see something you like, our advice is, dont sleep on it especially if its on the market at a price of between 1,000 to 1,500 pcm. Even if you feel your offer is low, offer immediately, as you might be surprised.
Most importantly, make sure you choose a letting agent who is well established in the area and with plenty of experience. They should be able to guide you through all of the pitfalls and de-stress your whole experience of finding a new home.
