The huge demand for residential lettings has seen an increase in the number of prestige homes becoming available for rent. Letting specialists Easthams & Co pride themselves on only dealing with high quality, well presented properties. As a result they also tend to attract the higher end of the market; tasteful barn conversions, beautiful Victorian detached houses and large executive homes.

These premier homes now command rents of between £1,000 and £1,500 per month – or even more – and there is no shortage of tenants out there who are willing to pay for the privilege. Director Matt Eastham says the standard of luxury accommodation offered by some homes on the rental market is extraordinary. “Some of these properties are amazing. They not only have designer kitchens and bathrooms but some also have their own gyms and games rooms and even swimming pools. We are starting to see more of these fabulous homes appearing on the letting market as their owners realise there is demand for them,” he said.

Whether you already own a premier property and are thinking about renting it out, or you aspire to live in a desirable home but are not in a position to buy, it is a win-win situation all round. “Becoming a landlord allows you to generate money from your home, that becomes an even more attractive proposition if your property attracts a high rental. In turn this benefits tenants who require a larger home offering a higher standard of living,” added Matt. Easthams & Co have contacts within large companies such as BAE Systems, IBM and the NHS which regularly relocate their staff to the area and require quality rental properties. Right now there is also unprecedented demand for well presented three bedroom and four bedroom semi and detached homes with gardens. At the executive end of the market, quality family accommodation typically attracts rents of between £650 and £850 a month.

The higher the specification and standard of the accommodation the higher the rent. So, if you are looking to rent, or you are a landlord with a property, in the PR1, PR2, PR3, PR4 or FY8 postcodes why not contact them today? Easthams & Co will take care of the rest.
