FOLLOWING on from the recent merger of two branches in Wigan, Reeds Rains have experienced a record month for lettings.

The new central office, which is based in the heart of Pemberton and offers a range of residential sales, lettings and mortgage related services, has let over 75% of its stock in the past four weeks.

The past month has seen an influx of tenant inquiries for the estate agent who have found an increasing number of renters keen to move quickly.

Looking for help in their move, customers from all areas of Wigan are choosing Reeds Rains based on their success in the lettings market and fantastic reputation.

Joshua Simms, Lettings Manager at the Pemberton branch said: “Letting such a large percentage of our stock in the past month reflects both the continuing growth of the rental market, as well as the great service and expert advice available at Reeds Rains.”

Explaining this growth in lettings, Mr Simms added: “Around the Wigan area the rental market is booming. Due to deposit requirements, first time buyers aren’t able to afford to purchase their own home.

“We are also finding a lot of homeowners renting out their own property in order to rent another which is more suited to their growing families.”

Eager to satisfy its customers’ requirements and as a result of a record month for lettings, Reeds Rains Pemberton is now on the lookout for more three and four bedroomed properties across Wigan. Such rental properties are in high demand with young professional couples and families in the Orrell, Up Holland, Hindley and Leigh areas.

Joshua Simms added: “In the current market, renters are finding it increasingly difficult to locate the right home.

“Reeds Rains are perfectly placed to help such tenants in their search through expert professional advice, friendly service, as well as same day rental appraisals and viewings.”
