Are you renting for below or above the market rent?

Market rent is a useful guide for landlords when they’re deciding what the rent will be.

But remember no two properties are the same. Even if the house is built by the same builder, one house could have a better view or better frontage which means it can rent higher. It all depends on the individual renter and landlord.

The information here comes from data provided by Tenancy Services. This means it only reflects properties where bonds are lodged.For more information, visit
