With Covid-19 still rife, and the country in yet another period of lockdown, moving home is getting a little bit harder than it used to be. 

Whilst Estate Agents are on the list of businesses that can remain open most are operating on a skeleton staff, and viewing properties themselves is becoming harder to arrange. 

Let By GO 2

 

Here are our 5 Top Tips to help you get moved during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

1) Be Prepared - look earlier than normal - with the number of viewings restricted it is all the more important to be ready in advance. 

2) Do Your Homework - If you see something you like, try and find out as much as you can before you call to view it. Is there a virtual tour you can view? Have you looked on Google Streetview? Is the property available when you want to move-in? If you can, have a drive past so you are familiar with the area. 

3) Dot your i's & cross your t's - Make sure you have all your paperwork to hand that you're likely to need to apply. Bank Statements, Passports, Proof of Address, Right to Rent, Up to date contact details for your landlord etc

4) Make sure you can afford what you want to rent. Check our Affordability Calculator, and talk to your Guarantors if you need to use one? 

5) Don't forget your PPE. You need to bring your mask, and gloves or hand-sanitizer. It's worthy wrapping up warm and bringing an umbrella too, just in case you have to wait outside....

Moving house isnt impossible, it might just take a little more time. Good luck with your move! 

As another hectic summer letting season slowly winds down and we take stock of what has been an unusual year, to say the least, one thing that really jumps out is the continued swing towards furnished letting. Renting property on a furnished has grown in popularity over the past 15 years and it is a trend that continues to develop. Furnishing a property moons ago normally meant a variety of mis-matched second-hand pieces with ubiquitous dark wood wardrobes. This then modernised with the arrival of IKEA, who's budget range became a firm landlords favourite. 

Fast forward to 2020 and furnished rental is increasingly 'the norm', particularly for flats in and around the city centre. 

Furnished lets of city centre flats, probably now account for around 90% of properties let every year, and flats that remain unfurnished are now few and far between. 

Furnished Apartment to let by Granger Oaks

Price as ever, is a driver for landlords, but we have always found that furnished property attracts more viewers and the letting price is always higher. In fact, properties that are furnished to a high standard now let for a significant premium and it is well worth pushing the budget to present something that really jumps off the page.

If you're a landlord in Nottingham thinking of furnishing your property and you would like some guidance on presenting your property to achieve the best possible rent, call us if you'd like some free advice. 

The cost doesn't have to be enormous and the furniture will often pay for itself within a year. 

Call us today if you'd liked to find out how more.

Nottingham Area Letting Agent Market Update

 

The Nottingham rental market shows no sign of slackening off despite concerns surrounding Covid 19. After an understandably quiet spring, the summer letting season exploded in July and demand stays at record levels as we head into the usually quieter autumn months.

Nationally, figures from Rightmove paint a picture of a buoyant rental market with only the London landlords struggling as people choose to work from home away from the capital city.

Rents and sale prices across Nottingham have continued to grow, with many two bedroom furnished properties in the city starting to command prices approaching £1000 per month. Welcome news for landlords with ever spiralling costs...  

Jonathan Detheridge from Granger & Oaks commented “this summer has been busier than ever, despite a slow start. As is becoming the norm, it is fast looking like agents are going to be fully let again this year with students going through clearing, and medics changing hospitals already struggling to find property to move in-to despite the growth in new purpose built accommodation”

In Estate Agency, stamp duty measures brought in to stimulate the market, and historically low interest rates, appear to be having an impact with sale prices rising across the city and property being snapped up in days rather than weeks. 

The rise of property prices in Nottingham is seeing landlords start to invest in the city again, but the fast moving nature of the market, and extra regulation, is making investing a tougher decision than it used to be. If you are looking at investing in property in Nottingham, Granger & Oaks frequently help landlords like you, and we’re happy to assist with the identification of suitable investment opportunities. Call Jonathan today on 0115 9629770 if you are thinking about expanding your portfolio....
