Build to Rent is coming. Colliers International advises on deals worth €110 M in the first three months of the year

Colliers International, a leading advisory firm for residential rental transactions, including Build to Rent, has closed various deals in Madrid worth a total of €110 million.

“In the first three months of the year, we have closed the sale of rental assets and turnkey projects in the institutional fund market that include 300 residences and more than 25,000 m² in central Madrid. We are currently managing Build to Rent transactions covering more than 100,000 m² of buildable area across the whole of Spain. It is undoubtedly one of the greatest opportunities in the residential sector, in which funds that specialise in this product will revolutionise the supply of quality homes for rent in the major cities”, says Antonio Pan de Soraluce, Managing Director of Capital Markets at Colliers.

“These are complex transactions with major financial and real estate components that we believe will grow exponentially in the coming years. Colliers is a pioneer in the Spanish residential market for arranging and closing Build to Rent transactions, thanks to the combination of our experience of capital markets and corporate finance in the residential sector” concludes Mikel Echavarren, CEO of Colliers International in Spain.
