Employment Opportunities Boost Peterborough Lettings Demand

At Just Lets Peterborough, we know the links between employment and the local rental market. If you are a landlord, you don’t have the time or energy to keep in touch with all the local factors that influence the market.

However, as Peterborough rental market specialists, we make it our business to understand the key elements that shape demand for rental property, and the availability of jobs in an area is essential.

At this time of year, there is a keen focus on job opportunities with many people looking ahead to the festive season, and the start of a New Year. There are always seasonal opportunities, and of course, many companies take on additional staff in the lead up to Christmas.

However, there are also permanent opportunities, and if these are filled, it will be a good boost to the Peterborough economy.
