This rapid pace is being fuelled by new demographic trends which are changing supply and demand dynamics, family attitudes and residential approaches as well as economic and planning policies. This means investors’ interest in the residential sector as an investment asset class is growing, with a crucial shift in attitudes to this sector both as an asset and an investment class.
Today two thirds of current investors are seeking to increase their exposure to residential. Seismic change in the way people now live, work and shop is having a huge impact on the fundamental makeup, design and tenure of new developments. The UK’s major cities are some of the most cosmopolitan in the world, attracting capital from all corners of the globe. New areas of regeneration are springing up all over the country. Improved infrastructure and progressive design is breathing new life into old buildings, with previously unthought-of uses comfortably thriving cheek by jowel. Not surprisingly, these changes are having a profound effect on the residential real estate market, and that in turn is influencing our advice to clients in master planning schemes, creating quality new places, and optimising returns over time.
