What is a direct offer?
When you look at the information for individual areas, you will see that some of them have details about direct offers underneath them. A direct offer is where the landlord has offered a vacant property directly to the applicant, without the applicant having to bid for the property. Direct offers are only made in certain circumstances. For more information regarding direct offers, please see the HomeChoice Bristol Allocation Scheme which sets out how properties are allocated.

What does “Average number of bids by property type” mean?
This tells you how many other people placed a bid for that property type, giving you an indication of the demand for the property.
