Surrey’s Mole Valley District has experienced the greatest annual increase in tenant leads delivered to agents, research by Zoopla has revealed.
The Mole Valley in the Surrey Hills has seen an 84% annual upsurge in renter demand on a per listing basis, the highest increase of any UK local authority in the past year.
Views of Mole Valley rental properties listed on Zoopla more than doubled in Q3 2019 compared to the same time the year previously.
The region is home to commuter hotspots such as Leatherhead and Dorking.
Andy Marshall, chief commercial officer at Zoopla, said: “The Mole Valley is popular amongst tenants given its commutability, local employment opportunities, first-rate schooling and the surrounding Surrey Hills, which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
“It’s great to see that the Mole Valley lettings market is booming; we’re here to ensure that agents can maximise those periods of buoyancy, as well as supporting them during challenging market conditions.
“An 84% uplift in tenant leads is evidence of our ability to channel interest from tenants on our portal into valuable leads for our agent partners, and underscores our continuing commitment to adding value to our customers.”
