Build To Rent Quarterly Report

We are pleased to share with you the latest edition of our quarterly residential insights for the UK. 

This quarter, the report focuses on the outcomes of our latest Build to Rent Investor Survey, which explores the makeup of the BTR sector, investor intentions, priorities, and opinions for 2024.

It represents a view from 32 leading institutional investors – a mix of those who plan to enter the sector, and those who already own 49,000 operational BTR units and 28,000 pipeline BTR units between them.

Key Findings From The Investor Survey:

  • £8.1bn assigned to the BTR sector in 2024;
  • 50% of investors surveyed have more than 30% of their UK real estate portfolio allocated to BTR;
  • 29% of investors surveyed plan to dispose of some of their UK BTR portfolio in the next 1-3 years;
  • 53% of investors surveyed voted urban BTR (amenity lite with mid-market rents) as their preferred asset type;
  • 41% of investors surveyed voted London zones 1-3 as their preferred location type (albeit 28% voted it in last place);
  • 75% of investors surveyed said they would not invest in a BTR scheme with an EPC D or below, the biggest no go for investors.
