Surging build-to-rent market creating opportunities for investors

By Sam Covington | Wednesday 8th June | 1 minute read

Despite being introduced a decade ago, the build to rent (BTR) market is in its infancy but it is showing signs of significantly growing in maturity as an asset class with recent trends.

BTR properties are new build developments designed specifically for renting. They come with a range of perks from longer tenancies to dedicated on-site managers, gyms and designer built communal spaces. These perks also come with a premium price tag.

With the rise of international companies realising the growth and potential of the BTR sector, UK investors need to act swiftly to avoid missing out on BTR opportunities. Meanwhile, buy to let private landlords may see this as a wake-up call to improve and refurbish their properties to stop private renting from being considered ‘second-class’ accommodation.

Growth has been particularly strong for Suburban or Single Family BTR. The total planning pipeline for this segment of the market has grown to reach 18,000 homes, an increase of 38% over the past 12 months.

When you combine the cost of living crisis increasing the number of people that can't afford to purchase with the expectation that BTR property investors are set to escape new Residential Property Developer Tax (RPDT) ), it looks like the BTR sector's time has arrived.
