With our Lettings staff now safely back in the office, it’s safe to say that we weren’t sure how the rentals market would respond to Covid-19. Jay Melton-Ball, our Lettings Director, shares his thoughts about the market and more importantly if you’re thinking about letting out a property, what people are searching for.

“Since returning to the office, it’s become apparent that with people’s working arrangements changing, what everyone is looking for in their next property is evolving.

“People are saving money on travel and with many office-based roles turning to remote roles we are looking to invest more in our home space, even whilst renting, and are open to looking at new locations. In July we achieved 97.5% of our asking prices which is fantastic news and a sign that our customers are now ready to make a move following an uncertain time.”

Jay and his team note that properties with outside space and those that are pet friendly are the most searched for and so we’ve collated the properties that were snapped up recently.

St Lukes Terrace

A fantastic four-bedroom property with outside space and room for your furry friends.

West Hill Street

A lovely three-bedroom mid terrace house with west-facing patio garden, perfect for garden happy hours in the summer months.

Kingscote Way

A modern two-bedroom apartment with an open-plan living space and access to a rooftop terrace.

Wilbury Villas

A beautiful two-bedroom maisonette within easy reach of Hove and Preston Park train stations. The balcony is this property’s real show-stopper.
