Stefanie recently spoke with us to provide an insight into her expertise and thoughts on the current market.

She said: “Despite average rental prices continuing to increase and cost of living pressures, there is still huge competition for family homes, smaller homes and apartments.

“Recent reports do suggest that the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in November will help mortgage rates to drop further and stabilise financial markets.

“We are currently working closely with our landlord clients, helping them to plan ahead for the opportunities that 2023/24 could bring.”
