Under the skin of the letting market

Here we share news and views on both the local letting market in & around Oxfordshire and all planned and recent legislation.


Student Letting List Launch 2016


Finders Keepers Student Letting List Launch 2016

Our student letting division runs on a very different ‘calendar’ to the rest of our residential letting. As our seven other offices notice the market slowing in the run up to Christmas, Finders Keepers Student Letting started heating up as they launched The List on Tuesday 29th November and let 81 properties in four days.

Despite being discouraged to do so, students queued around the block overnight to be the first through the door to secure the best student accommodation in Oxford for the academic year 2017-18. We reiterate every year that there is enough property to go around but the students get in line nonetheless. Interestingly it’s the larger more expensive properties with double bedrooms that tend to let first.

A lot of work goes into this launch day both in terms of preparing The List (a printed brochure of all the properties available) and in ensuring that the properties reach our standards. Establishing close relationships with landlords mean we are able to ensure properties are kept in top condition and any refurbishments are achieved in a timely manner with the help of our building division, Bricks & Mortar. This means that we offer tenants the best accommodation and at the same time are able to maximise our landlords’ investments.

Although we no longer have tenants queuing overnight, we still have applicants coming through the door and we are always looking for more property. If you are interested in renting out your property, or investing in a student letting investment in Oxford, contact Simon Tyrrell on 01865 260111.
