The Home Club, which launched in 2019, has 378 tenancies already under its belt and is a local, Guildford-based business whose tenacious commitment to customer service, and doing things differently, is finding a welcoming home in this corner of Surrey.
With rentals in the South East rising by 11% and the increase in family properties in village areas outside London by 7%, the trend to move away from the city continues. Stock is still at a premium after the initial surge of house sales post lockdown 1.0 has now reduced by 26%, so the opportunity for single-family property landlords is considerable. More tenants are looking for properties in the thriving market town of Guildford, with its proximity to London and career opportunities.
Founders, Jerry Pfletschinger and James Hay firmly believe that managing property for both landlords and tenants is rooted in transparency and local area knowledge. Single property landlords are becoming more prevalent in Guildford specifically and it can be challenging to navigate the legislation involved – this is where The Home Club excels.
