Property consultancy Galbraith has appointed Marsaili Macleod to its Inverness team handling lettings. Marsaili joins Sarah Hazzard on the Galbraith team covering rental property in Inverness-shire, Moray and the wider Highland region. The appointment is also a reunion as the pair have worked together previously in another lettings agency in Inverness.
Marsaili Macleod said, “I’m delighted to be working with Sarah again, as we have the same approach to customer service and attention to detail. Galbraith has an excellent reputation and manages one of the largest portfolios of rental property in Scotland. I’m hugely looking forward to joining the team.”
Galbraith reports an increase of 21.4 per cent in the number of properties it lets in the Highlands over the past 12 months. Average rents have increased by 2.7 per cent year on year and for each property there are 5 tenants on average making an application. The average time taken to find a suitable tenant for a property is just 6.5 days.
Sarah Hazzard said, “Marsaili is an outstanding professional and she is greatly valued by clients. Currently there is huge demand from waiting tenants. Rents are also increasing due to the strength of demand and limited supply. The rental sector has been subject to increasing regulation in recent years and landlords need a professional agent more than ever.”
