First Month Half Price

Recommended Posts

I've noticed this month in the Basingstoke extra freebie newspaper that one particular EA that handles plently of local rentals and prides itself on its ability to get BTL property occupied is now doing a "first month half price" offer.

I've seen the "six months half-price line rental" deal being offered by mobile-phone sellers for a year or more now... as obvious as saying "we know you can't stomach the 30 quid a month repayments but maybe if you sign up and let it creep up on you, you'll be fine with it".

I don't know why I feel it, but to me it's a dead giveaway of the state of the rentals market and desperate BTLs who can't or won't accept market forces will drive down the amount of money they can charge their tenants. If this "special offer" extends to six months, maybe we'll have "rent tarts" who shift around on short leases getting fantastic bargains...

I love that idea. And when anyone asks where you live "Well, its like, I'm a rent tart... but I'm not ashamed of it".

But TTRTR only the other day said rents were ripe to go through the roof. :lol::lol::lol::P
