I work as a tenancy consultant with the admin team, handling deal progression and negotiation; everything that happens between a client finding a new home and moving into it, and sometimes beyond!
A new survey of 20,000 city dwellers caught our eye, with the responses resulting in Time Out’s 2022 World’s Best Cities Index. Read on to discover how London, Amsterdam and Paris ranked, along with Klippa Relocation’s snapshot of each city’s rental market, with news and ‘per month’ rental values.
Expats around the world are already starting to experience the worst cost-of-living crisis in a generation, with budgets squeezed by tax rises and everyday purchases going up in price. The biggest change for most expats has been the increase in the energy cap on April 1, but many other price rises will add hundreds of pounds to an expat’s household spending too. The net result of rising inflation could leave thousands of expats worse off this year.
As a Relocation Specialist, aside from searching for properties and accompanying clients on viewings, I offer clients my advice. My role entails advising them on various areas of interest as well as local property market conditions.
We have passed the halfway point of 2022 and the cities of London, Amsterdam, and Paris are enjoying a summer in full swing. This six-month milestone is a great time to assess the rental markets in these leading relocation hotspots, so Klippa takes a look at the developing news and ‘per month’ rental values.
May appears to be a month of reflection when it comes to European rental markets. There is very little to report in the way of price changes – modest rises here, subtle falls there – but one thing unites London, Amsterdam, and Paris, and that’s what lies ahead. Klippa Relocation rounds up the forecasts that may affect the cost of renting and the choice of properties in the future, and balances this with a “per month” value* snapshot.
As a Senior Relocation Coordinator, my role is mainly focused on making sure all of our assignees find suitable housing. I also liaise with our clients on a daily basis about all live files and new incoming jobs
As a Property Researcher, my role involves finding the best possible housing options for my client’s specific requirements, sometimes in a very short time frame. Having a wide spread of good work relationships with letting agents all over the UK helps to find the best possible solutions both on the market and off.
This month, the Financial Times announced a ‘global rental squeeze’ was taking place – a worldwide landscape where properties are reserved within hours of being listed and tenants are making offers well over the advertised rent in order to see off competition.
Klippa Relocation looks beyond the newspaper headlines to see whether the reported hysteria is affecting rental market values in London, Amsterdam and Paris.
As a Relocation Coordinator, my role involves me working with the rest of the team to provide a seamless relocation process for our clients, with A* care, organisation and communication. Currently, I am undergoing training, learning about Klippa and dipping my toe in the water by carrying out home searches!
Expats looking for green living now have a number of eco-friendly destinations to choose from. And if you are already an expat, why not see if your country or city makes the top ten best destinations for green living for expats?
Spring has sprung across Europe and the rental market continues to show the green shoots of post-pandemic recovery. While month-on-month values are broadly stable, annual rental values are on course to match or even exceed those last seen early in 2020.
