Rural and costal areas the most in-demand UK locations for renters



Homes in rural and coastal areas are attracting the most interest from potential tenants.

These include locations such as Christchurch, Dorset (an average of 57 leads per available property), Poole, Dorset, (41) and Clacton-On-Sea, Essex (40).

For those wishing to stay in more urban areas, Norwich and Bath are the most in-demand areas with an average of 31 and 29 viewing requests per available property for rent.

Michael Cook, national lettings managing director at LRG, said: “It’s positive to see that average viewing requests for both sales and lettings are remaining strong.

“We have found that each village, town, city and area has its own unique property market, and factors that drive demand vary for each location.

“We can analyse this data and see that the majority of the branches in the top 10 in-demand areas are located in the South and in coastal areas, and decisions are not necessarily tied to transport to the capital.

“It will be interesting to see if this momentum remains over the rest of the year.”

Tilehurst, a suburb of Reading, is ranked the highest for sales, with an average of 25 viewing requests per available property.

Other popular areas are Maypole, Birmingham (19), Yateley, Hampshire (16), and Southend-On-Sea, Essex (16).
