Rental market reports and statistics.

CSO reports falling rents in September of - 0.2% in their latest detailed inflation report.

You gotta wonder if that’ll get reported. This to me is the definitive statistic.

The rents are rising line was the last thing keeping even amateur investors interested. The fact that they were only rising because the pros had left the market and were in the process of selling up and evicting their tenants causing a temporary squeeze in the market was easily ignored by those who wanted to.

That’s it. It’s all over.

This may have already been discussed, but it is interesting the way rental listings on Daft have started to skyrocket in the past month or so, just as For Sales listings are plateauing. It really is a massive change from the pattern last year where rental listings were collapsing at this time.
