Newcastle-based property experts, Walton Robinson, are specialising in buy-to-let and investment property sourcing, as landlords are becoming more self-assured about expanding their portfolios.
The agency, who manages properties for investment and student landlords, has seen the demand for decent rental properties outstripping supply.
This year, the agency has obtained rental increases of over 21% in some cases for their landlords, compared with the regional average of 6.6%.
Kyle Dickson, responsible for Valuations and Property Sourcing said: “We are seeing a perfect storm of increased demand and lower supply, with many Newcastle students and tenants competing for homes, particularly larger stock and HMOs.
“As a result, we may see that Newcastle rental prices pick up even more over the next year, enticing yet more landlords to expand their portfolio, or even attracting new landlords to the market.
“With this in mind, and with Walton Robinson’s knowledge and experience of the student and investment market, it makes complete sense to introduce a personalised service designed to help landlords find their next investment property.”
Walton Robinson’s buy-to-let service is completely bespoke, and will aid those looking to buy properties in Newcastle or expand their portfolio.
The agency will constantly monitor the market, attend viewings on behalf of clients and handle the sales process from instruction to completion, all according to their landlords’ needs and budgets.
General Manager, Amy Gibson, said: “We pride ourselves in being able to offer a tailormade service to each client we work with.
“By working closely with landlords to learn their expectations, budgets and visions, it allows us to take the reins and search the market on their behalf.
‘’We also often find ourselves in a very unique position with rare off market opportunities being presented to us.
“These off market opportunities are shared with our client list, so not only are we saving landlords lots of time in the search process, but we also present them with opportunities that they would never have otherwise known about.’’
Walton Robinson specialise in residential lettings for students, professionals and families in and around the Newcastle area, and those wanting to invest, buy, sell or develop property anywhere in the North East.
