Our June Room Rental Index stats are now available as a free download from SpareRoom.co.uk.
The index is invaluable to landlords all across the UK as it lists the average price for a double room in all the UK post towns and postcodes we’ve had listings from, along with detail on how much prices have risen or fallen over the past quarter and how high demand is in each area.
All you need to do to receive this powerful information is to go to SpareRoom’s Rental Index page and register (which is completely free).
Yesterday we passed a landmark – 1,500,000 registered users. We weren’t surprised that we got there but were taken aback by how quickly it’s happened having only passed the 1m mark in April 2009. Just goes to show that when finances are tight people look to sharing and taking in lodgers more than ever.
Thanks to all 1,502,063 of our users – new and old – for your support and custom over the past 6 years, we really do appreciate it.
Congratulations to Dominique, winner of our Live Rent Free in July competition. Dominique won with one of her 5 loyalty entries, gained by entering the competition every month – her prize of £485.33 is the average rent for a double room including bills in her postcode (N15).
“Sweet lord you have no idea how large this smile on my face is. Clicking the ‘enter now’ link became habitual and I never expected to win…definitely couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m living in London in a converted warehouse with a bunch of young lovelies, trying to juggle all manner of things as I can’t imagine having my own place for a little while yet. Amazing, cheers Spareroom you’ve enabled me to breathe a little easier!”
Don’t forget, for your chance to win a month’s rent enter now (or, if like Dominique you’ve entered previously, keep on entering!)
