>Wandsworth Rental Market Q2 24

Renting out your property in Wandsworth is the easy part!!

Renting out your property in Wandsworth is the easy part, but we all know there is more to it than that. Although the Wandsworth lettings market is strong in terms of finding tenants quickly due to the demand/supply imbalance, it is also proving to be the toughest time for landlords and tenants alike. Landlords are selling up in record numbers this is backed up by the number of enquiries we get from tenants who are moving. The trend is set to continue and this is not helping tenants either because rents are increasing.

The Average Rent In Wandsworth & London

The average rent now in Wandsworth is approximately £2,398.00pcm it has gone up over the last year from April 23 to 24 to around 5.1%. The average rent in London has increased in recent months it was £2,081 in Jan 24 in April it was £2,167. From March to April 24 rents increased to 3.1% which is the highest monthly increase since Aug 21.

The average change in London is 8.1% from April 23 v Apr 24 although rents have cooled down they are still rising. The cost of living crisis has not been easy for some landlords who have had to juggle increases in mortgage rates against the rent they're achieving - and this is in spite of the fact that rents are at an all-time high. Some landlords have resorted to the short term let market in Wandsworth as a favourable way to improve the profit margins.
