Short term rentals for house-hunting in London

Can a short-term rental help you buy your dream home?


The answer is probably ‘yes’. The property market in London has been hugely competitive for years, and the better position you’re in as a buyer can give you a real advantage.


If you are a cash buyer in a short term rental, you can move much more quickly than anyone who has to find a buyer and wait for all parties in a property chain to complete. And that makes your offer much more likely to be accepted by anyone selling their home.


A short term rental also gives you the chance to get to know the area you are in. Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of specific streets can help you to decide exactly where you want to live, and will give you a clear view of transport links, shops, restaurants and services.

Let us find you a short-term, flexible rental to call home

Whether for a week, a month, or longer - let us help you. We can take some of the stress away!
