City Lets Q2 2018 market report

One bedroom properties continue to be popular and have shown a fantastic performance, with a year on year rent increase of 6.3%. There’s a huge demand for these properties from single occupants and couples and we are finding these properties have the most interest once they come to the rental market.

As the Edinburgh rental market continues to grow from strength to strength we expect this to continue as demand continues to outstrip supply.

Thinking about purchasing a buy-to-let property and looking for more information on the rental market. Please contact our lettings team at or call 0131 253 2847.
