At Hamptons our Lettings Experts know all about short-lets no matter where you are in our network, so if you need advice or just want to ask more about short-lets please contact us today.
Why a landlord you might consider short-letting a property
Typically short-let properties come with higher rental incomes than long-term rentals, so it can be a really attractive option to many potential landlords. If you are considering letting a property, it is always worth asking for both the long and short term rental value.
As a landlord, you might be looking to enter into a more flexible situation initially while you make other decisions about your property or even your portfolio (if you have more than one property). Short-letting your property is the perfect way to have more flexibility should you wish it.
Reasons that tenants might consider renting a short-let property
Try before you buy
With many people moving further from their current home than ever before, the trend of ‘try before you buy’ is becoming more and more popular. And, the best way to really decide if a new city, town or rural area is for you, is to actually live there, in a comfortable home.
Another reason we see many people using short-let properties is when they have had a relocation with work. Often these relocations can happen quickly and to somewhere completely new, so instead of making rushed decisions many choose to find a more temporary solution.
Over the past few years with everyone spending so much time at home and many focussing on home improvements, we have seen a big increase in people looking for properties to short-let while their homes are undergoing construction work. And, why not rent a comfortable place that is close to home so you can keep an eye on progress, but then get away from all the dust and noise?
