(PRWEB UK) 14 August 2012
Lettingweb data has shown August to be the busiest month of the year for property hunting; with 25% more tenants looking for flats than at any other time of the year. To counter this, they have launched a brand new site that aims to make the property search less stressful.
The complete site overhaul contains new features, a new look and a more intuitive interface as a solution to the problems that flat hunting in the summer can cause. Allowing tenants more freedom over their search, it offers an exciting new step for property portals in the UK.
July, August and September are all extremely busy for the letting industry, together amounting to 32% of the total enquiries last year, according to Lettingweb data. August, however, is by the far busiest, with 25% more enquiries coming through to Lettingweb than in the other months. Edinburgh and Glasgow are going to be particularly tough places for flat hunters, as 40% of the enquiries in Scotland were for properties in the two biggest cities.
August is also the most expensive time to be looking for new rentals, with average rents in Scotland peaking in August for the last three years. This busy time can cause problems for tenants, landlords and letting agents, and Lettingweb have a new design and new features for all three.
Steve Tigar, the Managing Director of Lettingweb, had this to say about the launch:
‘We’ve listened to what tenants, landlords and agents want from a property portal, and really taken it all on board. That’s why we are so excited about the new iteration of Lettingweb. The features and interface are designed to take the hassle out of property hunting for everyone involved.
'Launching at such a busy time presented us with a challenge, but one that we were keen to meet. Our in house development are flexible to any market changes or user requests, so we’re confident that Lettingweb.com will be on top for many years to come.’
