BOOST YOUR PORTFOLIO'S PERFORMANCE

How our flexible letting strategy works

We blend together short, mid and long lets – taking advantage of the peaks of short lets whilst keeping the stability of long lets – to give you the best possible chance of achieving more from your investment. We adhere to the 90-day legal limit for short-term lets and then combine mid and long lets for the rest of the year, benefitting from seasonality. Our average occupancy rate is 86%, and this number reaches 93% in peak months.
