London Furnished Apartment Market Reports

London is one of New York Habitat's fastest growing businesses. Since we began offering furnished apartment rentals in London in 2003 we have worked to become the preferred provider of short and long term furnished apartments and vacation rentals.

Since we began renting apartments in London we have collected detailed information on all of our bookings. Based on this information we have been able to create the London Furnished Apartment Market Reports.

At this time our London Market Reports will focus on vacation rental segment. The reports will include information on apartment rental prices, popularity of neighborhoods, size of apartments rented and length of stay. The information has been designed to meet the needs of renters, owners and others interested in the London market. We trust that this information will give a picture of what the market looks like and will help in responding to the latest changes in the London market.
