Over a Third of Our Properties Rented Thanks to our ‘Virtual Office’


With the whirlwind that has been 2020, businesses across all industries have had to adapt to new ways of working. Keylet Student were no exception to this, and we launched our ‘Virtual Office,’ where we offered video tours, live video calls, detailed photos, floor plans and online contract signings.

This new way of working has been hugely successful for us, and we are thrilled to say we have already rented a third of our portfolio to Students across Cardiff. We are proud of our performance so far in preparation for the 2021/22 academic year, but we are also pleased with how many high-end student properties we still have available for students who are leaving decisions to slightly later than usual this year. We cannot predict what 2021 has instore for us, but we are imagining the first part of the year won’t be too dissimilar to what we have experienced over the last few months. With that being said, if you are ready to secure your property for next year, let us know!

Whilst we expect the demand to slow down over the Christmas holidays, we are on hand up until the 23rd December to help with any enquiries, be it online or in person. We will then be returning to our office on 4th January to kick off the new year with a bang!

As always, our offices are fully in line with Covid guidelines and accompanied viewings are always socially distanced, masks worn for the duration and sanitisation takes place before and after. We have been thrilled with how responsive potential tenants have been to our requests of ensuring the guidelines remain adhered to at all times.

All of the above is also very positive news for Landlords during this time of uncertainty as it clearly shows the demand for student housing is still very high. We know that the appetite for university students is no different to any other year, and we want to continue our rate of success! So, if you are currently sitting on an empty property, get in touch! We guarantee to fill the property with suitable tenants, and guarantee you income for the next academic year at the very least.
