Alongside the huge growth in demand from homebuyers for property in the Five Valleys, the number of people looking to rent in and around Stroud has also increased and Buy-to-Let remains an attractive investment for many here.
Statistics from Dataloft UK show that rents in GL5 have risen over the last 12 months, at a slightly higher rate for houses than for apartments, but that the latter accounted for 63% of all lets in the area, achieving an average of £644 per month.
Flats remain a firm favourite for would-be investors and certain developments such as Jack Russell Close, Little Mill Court and Home Orchard in Ebley are hugely popular with renters, being within walking distance to the town centre but close to green space too.
As local Sales and Lettings experts, The Property Centre is not only well placed to help those looking to invest in Buy-to-Let, but to manage their properties too thanks to its dedicated 6-strong Property Management team.
Jodie Riddel, Assistant Head of Property Management with The Property Centre and responsible for looking after numerous rental properties in Stroud, is sure that customer service and communication is key to the company’s success in Lettings.
She said: “We’re proud to be a local, independent estate agent and believe we offer a service that’s genuinely designed around each landlord’s requirements. We’re mindful that each landlord is unique and our range of management packages can be tailored to suit their individual needs, with a transparent fee structure. We find suitable tenants quickly and easily, but more importantly thanks to our regular inspections and frequent communication between tenants and landlords, we ensure that a property is kept in the best possible condition so the landlord can enjoy the maximum rental income.”
“I purchased a very pretty cottage, through The Property Centre, and they now look after all necessary certificates, maintenance and keep both my tenant and myself up to date without any worries. I cannot speak more highly of the team and recommend all aspects of the service.”
