LONDON, October 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Hamptons International has announced the launch of an exclusive new short-let service called "Sport-Lets". The service, which launches today, will provide landlords with the opportunity to rent their property for short periods of time, from one week. The new service offers an innovative and flexible rental solution for those who live in close proximity to sporting events and want to make potentially significant returns over a short space of time.
At a time when more than a million visitors will descend on London during the Olympics next year, the new Sport-Lets service will allow landlords to take advantage of the surge in demand for short-term accommodation. A Hamptons International website poll* suggests that almost a quarter of people visiting London for the Olympics next summer intend to look for short-term rental in London.
Hamptons International will also offer the Sport-Lets service to the Corporate Services and Relocation markets, which have shown a constant demand for short term lettings properties as well as significant demand for London property throughout in summer 2012.
Kate Eales, London Lettings Director at Hamptons International, commented: "Hamptons International has seen increasing demand from landlords who are looking for a professional and established agent to help them capitalise on short-term demand for local property during various sporting events such as the 2012 Olympics. The Hamptons Sport-Lets service will provide the ideal solution for opportunistic landlords who can offer good-quality stock and want to maximise their rental potential."
Sports-Lets are available now across the Hamptons International UK branch network. For more information please visit http://www.hamptons.co.uk .
