What the hell is going on with this....

I hope this is some kind of wierd error with Rightmove's database, as opposed to some strange and extreme development in the property market this week....

I went on to rightmove, chose my town Haywards Heath (postcode: RH16) and did a search for all Rental "Houses" in any price bracket. Mainly to see how the local rental market is doing.

Normally, like any town in the country these days you see page after page of the usualy two bed terrace, and a few 3-4 bed house for £750-£1000-ish pcm. This is certainly how it was a week ago.

I just went and looked a few minutes ago and in my whole town (one of the largest towns in mid-sussex) there are now 3 (yes THREE) rental properties. And of these one of them is a £2,600pcm 7 bedroom mansion and another is a £1,500pcm character cottage.

there's only ONE traditional "BTL Fodder" property going, a £595 pcm 2 bed maisonette. Can someone else have a look at these pages for my area on Rightmove and try to shed some light what and earth has happened here?

I am just down the road in Horsham, and was looking for rental property in April and May. I have just had a look on Rightmove and it looks very similar now to how it looked then. Prices about the same, lots of choice. At least one property that was up for rent 4 months and is still on/on again at the same rent.

I think it must be a glitch on the website unless Haywards Heath is very odd. Mind you thinking about it......

C'mon RJG, you've been doing this regularly: give 'em an email or a call and get to the bottom of it yourself. I could look fo ryou but I don't regularly do this survey so it will be difficult for me to interpret. Would I ask you to tell me whether S500 put/call equity option ratio figures are correct simply because they didn't fit with my view of where they should be pointing? What you are doing coul dprove useful in the months ahead: you have experience, so become an expert on it. Then you can put us all straight. You and others so inclined have a chance to pick up on relationships between price and supply / demand metrics as no generation before you . Don't squnader it or abdicate your responsibilities to some other poster. Why not formalise what you are doing. Start a website, or include your findings in a thread here.

You know it makes sense.
