Interestingly, there are approximately 10 properties to rent per letting agent (across both Zoopla and Rightmove). In contrast, Hello Neighbour onboard between 150-200 new rental properties every month (equivalent to 15 letting agent branches) – highlighting the growing appetite for our simpler, fairer and faster approach to lettings.
