Maidenhead Lettings Update

The local housing market in Maidenhead

Our market update in February


The new year has started with a bang! Since being back, we have registered a massive 213 tenants in a two week period. Even with the national lockdown, there doesn’t appear to be any sign of tenant registration slowing down. With this in mind, we have had over 90 viewings booked and taking place along with 25 offers and 16 lets agreed.

Most of these tenants are all after the same thing at the moment which is outside space. Currently on Rightmove in the SL6 post code we have 62 houses on the market along with 170 apartments.

Tenants do not appear to be too fussy when it comes to outside space either. Although gardens are the clear favourite, homes with any sort of outside space such as balcony or roof terrace are receiving a much higher number of enquiries and are letting noticeably quicker.

We have also seen the average tenant budget increase, with the average tenant now looking between £1,200 - £1,750.

This is largely due to the increased amount of families now looking in advance of the new school application deadlines. The secondary reason for this increase is property upgrades by tenants who were already renting a home around the £1,000 mark. Now seeking more space, tenants have upped their budget to cater for this.

Due to the high levels of enquires we have had so far this year, now is a great time to let your property out even with the current COVID-19 situation – legally we are still allowed to do viewings, move tenants into the properties and still bring properties onto the market.
