The current property market has made renting property an increasingly important part of the way we live now. Almost everyone will have been a tenant in a rented property at some point in their life and in areas where house prices have outstripped wages significantly then renting, and renting for longer, is often the best option to live where you want to live.
Property for rent doesn’t simply appeal to tenants who may be waiting or hoping to get onto the property ladder, but also offers flexibility for those downsizing or moving into a new area. It isn’t uncommon for us to arrange viewings for rental properties for potential tenants that include everyone from young singles moving into their own place for the first time to mature couples who are downsizing.
Although renting gives you greater flexibility to move on than you have when you own a property, it still takes time and money to find the right place and to move in, so it is worth putting some careful thought into finding somewhere that will suit you.
