Be streets ahead of everyone!

Find out all the facts, figures and trends of the lettings industry available nowhere else in the UK.

Our RPI is the biggest and best in the country, and the only one to show such detailed lettings industry information.

RPI cover

It highlights:

  • The number of tenants in 11 UK regions
  • Whether tenants are male or female
  • What type of property they used to live in
  • Monthly change in rental prices
  • Change of regional rental prices

The data has been gathered from over 3,000 of HomeLet’s letting agents nationwide â€" far more robust than any other RPI currently on the market â€" and also generates statistics based on actual rental price, rather than the advertised cost.

April 2011 statistics show:

Younger tenants are being squeezed out of the rental market

The UK’s rate of increase in rental prices is beginning to slow

Rents have dipped unexpectedly in the North West

Average rents remain high in the UK

How do I find out more?
The full report is attached to this email.

We were new, very professional, very keen, very hardworking and very keen to please but no one had heard of us. Our marketing budget was limited - we were skint to be truthful! What did we do? Well we set about making people aware of us by 'canvassing'.

Yes to a degree and we certainly wound up some of the more established local estate agents who were not keen to lose instructions to newcomers like us.

£10k refit competition ??

I have just returned from hospital having had a procedure carried out on my foot/ankle that involves repairing a damaged tendon and realigning my foot by breaking my heel! While waiting to be called down to theatre I sat in my room checking e-mails - as you do when you want to take your mind off things.

There was an e-mail from Colin Clayton of Desk Centre Limited talking about a £10,000 office refit and all I had to do was create a blog post suggesting why my office should be the one to receive it!

Like most surviving, small, independent estate agents we have done this by cutting costs, reducing premises and regrettably letting staff go. Our address used to be 20-22 Market Place but is now 20 Market Place only. We originally moved to No.20 from our first premises in Newnham Street in 1993- my then business par…
