Unsurprisingly and in stark contrast to the sales market, rentals are booming right across the city. It is impossible at present to determine just how much of this demand is from people who had been planning to buy and how much of it is due to the traditional seasonal upturn we tend to see through the summer. Either way, we expect the rentals sector to see sustained growth going forward as the quality of stock improves and as an entire generation of homemakers experience their first taste of a difficult market.
