  • Hamptons say that a lot of people are unable to sell their old house, so they are renting it out instead. They hope to be able to sell the house when the market picks up again.

    We need a snazzy name for this group. Let-To-Sell? Let-And-Wait? They’re becoming an important part of the market. There’s a house down my street where the owners have moved to Australia and are letting out their old house here.

    With the rental market flooded with new properties available to be let, does this mean there will be a crash in rents (ppm)? Or just lots of rental accomodation sitting there vacant?
