Lettings market is moving with confidence according to Seymours Haslemere

The local lettings market has continued to grow steadily over the last few months, fuelled by increasing demand for rental properties across Haslemere and Godalming. While the average rental price is at an all-time high, there is huge competition for family rentals and smaller homes that suit couples and would be first-time buyers.

With demand so high, some of our landlords are carefully planning the expansion of their lettings portfolios, while ensuring their existing tenants remain secure.


Gain sound advice

Due to the current economic uncertainty and increasing financial pressures, many tenants and landlords are turning to our experienced lettings advisors at Seymours for some sound advice.

We recently spoke to Nick Less, Co-owner of our Haslemere and Godalming offices to gain an insight into his lettings expertise and thoughts on the current market. There’s no doubt that Nick’s knowledge could prove invaluable to anyone who requires some lettings advice.


Local lettings experts

Nick has been part of the Seymours team for more than two decades and his expertise is predominantly in lettings. He heads up our award-winning lettings team who manage an exciting portfolio of over 300 local properties.

Throughout his career, which began as a sales negotiator, Nick has successfully sold and let thousands of properties across Haslemere, Godalming and the surrounding villages.

Nick commented: “The surge in demand for rental property has created issues in the market over the last few years. There simply isn’t enough supply to meet demand. This has ramped up in recent months due to interest rate rises.

“Our lettings advisors are working hard to find our prospective tenants their ideal homes. Properties need to meet their needs but also their desired budget.
