Research from Rightmove has revealed a nationwide disparity between properties available to rent (down by 26% from last year) and demand from renters, which has risen by 6% since last year . In a bid to create new homes to rent between Thirsk and Ripon, North Yorkshire, Annington is releasing its newest collection of two-bedroom terraced homes to rent this month.

These former MOD homes, located in the Topcliffe area have been lightly refurbished by Annington to include new front doors, new floor coverings and freshly painted walls. The traditional 1940s style homes are competitively priced for the area, available from £625pcm, with the first four homes launching on Friday 23rd September.

Andy Wilson, Branch Manager at Joplings Thirsk and Ripon, comments: “Properties to rent tend to be snapped up within 24 hours of being posted, as Thirsk remains an extremely busy market. Tenants are drawn to the secure location and fair monthly prices, which could open the market to younger tenants renting for the first time, or young families hoping to stay in the area.”

Stacy Whitehead, Marketing Manager for Annington, adds: “These properties will be managed by a dedicated and experienced team who will be on hand for any queries. We look forward to welcoming tenants into this close-knit community and making Thirsk their home. With such a demand for rental homes, we expect these properties to be really popular, anyone interested should enquire quickly to avoid missing out.”

Thirsk is known for its rural landscape, however there is plenty at hand for residents to do, with two local primary schools, a doctor’s surgery, Tesco Superstore and local pubs all nearby. The North Yorkshire market town is well known for its racecourse, which is just a 10-minute drive from the homes. Residents can also enjoy the town’s athletics club, which hosts the local cricket, football, rugby, and tennis club.

There are strong commuter links with easy access to the A1 and A19, regular bus services and trains leaving Thirsk Station reach London in under two hours and 30 minutes.
