New Landlord market question

We have a nice modernised 3 bed terrace with small Garden in North Croydon. (Soon to be vacated by family member) I’ve looked at market info which seems to suggest a drop in market activity, properties and tenants. Does anyone have a real feel for likelihood of enquires from recent experience?

Don’t know about North Croydon area but I am a few miles north of Manchester and activity is buoyant up here, I had 52 applications for one of the flats just before Christmas.
What have you got to lose, advertise with OpenRent (I would pay the extra £29 if I were you as it goes onto several other sites) if you don’t get the response you want then just pause the ad for a couple of weeks and then go live again.
Just a tip for you if this is first time rental don’t be afraid to go top end with with your monthly rental, going in too low can often rebound on you.

Many thanks, v helpful

Well ours are in blackpool and never had a problem.

Thanks for your advice - fingers crossed I have a good tenant at £100 more than I had originally budgeted
