While many people enjoy their summer holidays this August, letting agents up and down the country are gearing up for a very busy few weeks.
Analysis by Waterfords and Dataloft reveals that more than a fifth of the year's tenancies are expected to begin in the next two months.
Over the next few weeks demand from students looking for accommodation before term starts, recent graduates starting new jobs and families seeking to move before the next school term will combine.
With more than two fifths of tenancy agreements being for 12, 24 or 48 months, many existing tenancies come up for renewal at this time of year and tenants may choose to change their property, further boosting demand for rental properties.
This makes August an ideal time to book a free, no obligation Lettings Market Appraisal of your property.
