Maximising returns on Build-To-Rent

Increasing rental demand

The ‘Build to Rent’ and ‘Private Rented Sectors’ have grown rapidly in the UK since 2000. The overall percentage of households in the Private Rented Sector has grown from 10% to 19%.

As the housing market continues to freeze out first time buyers, with high entry prices, the number of renters, in the UK is estimated to have past 4 million, with the majority, aged between 18 and 35 years old,

BTR properties in the UK are valued at a combined £1 trillion, with annual lending in the sector hitting £25 billion.

BTR and PRS

BTR and PRS are required to meet continued growth in rental demand.

Government white-papers estimate that over 250,000 new homes are needed to be built every year in the UK. This is to meet the demand from a growing rental market. As a result, developers are investing large sums in BTR and PRS properties – creating purpose-built units geared specifically towards this market.
