January is always a busy time for the lettings market and this year, according to lettings specialists Leaders, is no exception.

Demand for rented property in Rustington and the surrounding areas is extremely high, with many people looking for accommodation in the New Year.

Leaders’ Rustington branch manager, Demetrius Stacey, said: “We have a lot of people registered with us looking for a home to rent – ranging from 1 bedroom flats to large family homes. With demand so high, any well-presented flat or house in the right location will let very quickly, so if you are a landlord with an available property, don’t miss out on this peak in demand: now is definitely the best time to get your property let at the best possible rent.”

Leaders report that demand is particularly high for three bedroom homes in the mid-rent range of £795 - £895 per month and that all types of property on Bramley Green and Beaumont Park are very sought after by renters.

“2013 looks set to be a busy year with lots of activity in the lettings market,” says Demetrius. “The market looks particularly positive for landlords for the year ahead. With the right advice on where and what to buy and how to present a property to achieve the best rent, landlords can expect to achieve good yields.

“Buy to let is still a very attractive investment for the medium to long-term, especially compared with low interest rates and the volatile stock market. We are looking forward to another busy year and wish all our landlords and tenants – past, present and future - a very Happy New Year!”
