Property attracts high volumes of Sydney renters

Yesterday afternoon our leasing team was inundated by high volumes of potential tenants looking to get into the competitive Surry Hills market. Up for lease is a one bedroom duplex tucked away in quiet Smith Street, with all furnishings included. People had lined up at least 30 minuets prior, to the 15 minuets open for inspection which attracted over 70 groups to attend.

Emily Natoli had 49 pre-registered attendees since early last week, with the online CRM inspect real estate unable to book anymore as it was over capacity. Various applicants submitting applications ahead of time in attempts to expedite the process, vying for first priority.

“With high demand through the inner city and city fringe, properties aren’t staying listed online for too long. We have found that there are surpluses of tenants that are missing out because of such high demand. With 65% of residents in Surry Hills being renters it’s no mystery why one of the most desirable suburbs is getting harder and harder to rent in.” Emily Natoli Leasing Executive at Ray White Surry Hills

Whoever the lucky tenant is of Smith Street, we would like to congratulate them for landing such a rare find.
