Waterfords Lettings launch new Farnham Property Management Hub

News at Waterfords | 02/08/2018

Waterfords Lettings expand their dedicated property management team after a record breaking number of lets across Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire. 

Throughout May, June and July the Waterfords Lettings team have seen an unprecedented number of tenants interested in letting a property. Demand for rental properties in the region is very high with demand far outstripping supply.

Samuel Charlton, Area Lettings Manager, comments;

"The slowing sales market means that it is a good time to invest in a lettings portfolio.

The ever-increasing house prices in the residential sales sector, means many first time buyers have to rent in order to save for a deposit. This will mean higher demand for decent rental properties.

My Waterfords lettings team are advising all landlords to retain their properties to take advantage of the increased demand on rental stock. Landlords who come to market, will witness high interest in their properties."

Due to the high demand for rental properties and the increased amount of tenancies, Waterfords made the decision to expand the lettings team and create a more streamlined process for Landlords and Tenants who use Waterfords Lettings. 

The new Property Management team have set up a new Hub in the Waterfords Farnham branch on Castle Street, joining the existing Farnham Sales team. Some structural changes to Property Management will ensure that our Landlords and Tenants receive the best possible service.
