A half dozen units became available over the Xmas period and didn’t rent for several months. Apparently the Covid lock-ins kept the market depressed. A two bedroom unit became available towards the end of Feb.
I didn’t take any notice at the time because my lease doesn’t end until May 5. BUT!! 3 weeks gone and no takers. It is still a long time to May but I spoke to the agent today while she supervised an unattended ‘Open Flat’. No one came, AGAIN! I told her my position and my interest in the flat. She displayed the agent’s calculated disinterest but I promised an email detailing my requirements, for discussion with the owner. I expect no response but lets wait and see.
