Renting at Christmas?

Renting at Christmas

It is approaching that time of the year, Oxford Street illuminating with its famous Christmas lights, shop windows full with festive decorations, nostalgic songs on the radio and the TV adverts that we all know and love! All our focus is forced toward this magical time but first thing is first … You can’t have Christmas without a HOME!

It could be that your landlord is selling or maybe your tenancy is coming to an end, one way or the other you are looking to rent a home but need some more insight into renting in the Christmas period! Well fear not, Hornsey Agencies are here and we are happy to share our knowledge with you.

Thinking of renting near Christmas?

At Hornsey Agencies we say it’s the perfect time for applicants to find somewhere! 

Why you ask?

Through my experience, the months leading up to December usually get quieter as less and less people choose to move. Why is this? Maybe it’s because holidays are approaching and with so many expenses mounting up and the general cost of living nowadays, no wonder people are deciding to stay put.

Does that mean I shouldn’t move now?

Well it depends on your situation. If you’re one of the lucky ones that doesn’t have to break open the piggy bank to keep financially afloat over the holidays then maybe this is the perfect time for you to move.

It is a well-known fact that landlords never want a vacant period, and as most vacant periods happen at this time, the bargaining power shifts to the applicants. At Hornsey Agencies, we advise you change your search criteria, and search for properties between £10 - £40 p/w above your budget as you will find that during the negotiation process an offer of closer to your budget will be accepted. 

With the knowledge that there are properties but less quality applicants, you can make cheeky offers for properties that may have originally been out of your price range, with the likelihood that you could land yourself a great deal!
