Crowds of hopeful tenants gather to land their dream Edinburgh flat

Cullen Property met with queues of students at the first of their 100 city flat viewings. 

Students from around Edinburgh gathered outside the first of Cullen Property’s flat viewings this morning, with hopeful tenants queuing up the street. This was the first of 100 flat viewings that Cullen Property will be doing until Friday 20 February.

Cullen Property representatives were on hand to meet with the excited students this morning and show them around the property, before the prospective tenants made a dash to the finish line in order to beat everyone else back to the Cullen Property office and secure their perfect flat. In today’s competitive market for quality student properties, students are becoming even more creative in order to stand out and bag their property of choice.

Due to an increasing demand for student properties in the city, Edinburgh student property management and lettings specialist Cullen Property have listed the flats they have available for rent this summer on their website. The viewings will be taken place at properties in the Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Newington areas.

Steve Coyle, Operations Director at Cullen Property, says: “We had a fantastic turnout at our first viewing this morning and we look forward to the next week ahead. The students that turn up to our viewings are always very creative and we are interested in seeing the ideas they come up with in order to secure their flat. Previously, we’ve had semi-professional cyclists outside the property during the viewing waiting for the ‘go’ sign out of the window from their prospective housemate, before pedalling back to our office.

 “By listing our properties and viewing dates on our website, students don’t have to contact us and arrange appointments. It makes the process easier for them if they can just turn up on the day and time stated. We always get great feedback from students who come to our viewings and we expect to let all 100 properties within three to four weeks.
