Looking out for the best flat or apartment to rent for the a long term period can be very complicated. The number of properties coming onto the rental market in certain parts of the country is very limited, depending on many factors. Some areas that used to be looked down on because of shabbiness and hugely complex ethnic mixes, now rate as the most popular. Taking Birmingham and Bristol as two examples. In the 1970s – 2000 era, these were blighted with poor housing stock. The economy of the areas was not strong in terms of employment.
There has since been much regeneration in many areas, those two included with massive investment bringing beauty and prosperity. Now it is virtualy impossible to find a home for rent – the waiting lists are extensive. Getting on the books of a good agent in your area of choice is critical if success is going to come in a working lifetime!
