Build to Rent (BTR) schemes are residential developments designed for long-term rental and typically owned by institutional investors or large-scale operators

Build to Rent homes are becoming an easy choice for many working professionals and families looking for quality rented accommodation with great customer service. 

The evolution of the offering from suburban homes to large multi-phased developments, is giving rise to a new breed of operators and opportunities both in city-centres and commuter towns.

The variety of concepts offered by a growing base of BTR providers informs our view of how the sector will continue to evolve.
