Our letting department is busier than ever with people from all walks of life opting to let a property rather than purchase. Many properties are let within the first two viewings. We offer accompanied viewings seven days a week to maximise your property exposure and ensure that we let it as quickly as possible.
August and September seem to be busier than normal with Edinburgh flats just flying off the shelf. Within 15 minutes of the viewing taking place new tenants are appearing at our door asking for reference forms and then the race begins for reference checks! In fact potential new tenants would like to take the flats on without even viewing them!
Our landlords and tenants are delighted that we can give them a personal service, and are always relieved to be able to talk to someone familiar to them and familiar with the property to deal with any issues or concerns they may have.
Whilst Edinburgh will always remain popular with students and young professionals for letting, East Lothian and in particular Musselburgh has also become a very big favourite for tenants to let properties. Students attending Queen Margaret University have the advantage of lower rent compared with similar Edinburgh properties, yet if they wish to visit town, with the train station on the door step of the University, Edinburgh city centre is only 8 minutes away by train. They also have great shopping facilities in nearby Fort Kinnaird. East Lothian is also very popular with family with its great links to motorway and park and ride facilities for commuters together with a good range of Primary and High Schools including Loretto Private School.
Demand exceeds the amount of properties we have they are flying off the shelf!
