These are the top 10 things that tenants are prioritising in their rental property searches in 2023.

Open plan living

The versatility offered by open plan living and the existence of a large communal area that is perfect for both gatherings and busy family life is highly sought after by tenants.

Home Office

Working from home is no longer unusual and as a result many tenants place a lot of value on having an office space that is separate from the rest of the home.

Modern Kitchens

Efficient, sleek and modern kitchens have been topping tenants' must-have lists for several years now.


Space is important to tenants. Pantries offer the ability to create space in the kitchen by storing everything you need in there. They are perfect for stashing away a large weekly shop or for hiding away bulk buys with ease.

Kitchen Islands

Providing extra surface space, storage and an attractive focal point, kitchen islands are high up on the list of desirable features for many tenants.


Tenants are looking for properties that feel spacious and storage is key to this. Ample built-in storage is very attractive to tenants.

Hardwood Flooring

Durable, easy to maintain and long lasting, it is easy to see why hardwood floors are popular with tenants.

Outdoor Entertaining Areas

Areas to socialise in have been especially important for tenants since the pandemic and outdoor areas to host gatherings in are particularly popular.


Post-pandemic tenants place a lot of value on having space at home to undertake DIY projects or simply store their belongings without them encroaching on their living area has soared.

Going Green

Soaring energy bills, the rising cost of living and an awareness of our individual contributions to climate change has meant that properties with EPC (energy performance certificates) ratings of C or above are attracting more attention from potential tenants than properties with a large carbon footprint.
