Demand still stronger than supply

The quieter period is now upon us in Central Oxford.

Keeping in touch with landlords of properties that went onto the sales market a few months ago has resulted in those properties recently being relisted to let again, due to “failed sales”.

The property above did not find buyers so we marketed it to let. We secured new tenants immediately, along with a 15% increase in rent on the previous tenancy!
