Renting to buyers – the new normal opens up opportunities for landlords

With the sustained and national interest from urban-based buyers searching for a country home, we’re seeing no let-up in city dwellers in the South-East looking to make a permanent move to quieter locations. How can this be a blessing to landlords?

Working from home is becoming a regular feature in many people’s lives, with employers seeing the benefits and workers keen to make the most of their newfound work/life balance. But what do you do if you’ve made the decision to move but can’t find a new property?

Many of our purchasers are considering the option of renting a home until their dream home comes to market. Landlords are in a great position to market their homes to a new band of property buyers – those who’ve decided to move to the country but can’t yet find the perfect property. They are ready to move.

"I have moved around the country five times in the last four years and have rented properties from different estate agents and by far the nicest and most professional and helpful of those has got to be Jackson-Stops by a mile." Jennie W

We’ve seen decreased property transactions in August, with fewer homeowners putting their homes on the market. Fewer properties on the market but sustained interest from buyers has created a bigger market for medium to long term renting. We have a waiting list of purchasers looking for their new home in the South-East who are considering the option to rent.
