Investors forecast a big year for ‘build-to-rent’ properties

Investors forecast a big year for build-to-rent properties

Institutional investors including banks and property funds have invested record amounts of money into the UK’s rental property market in 2021, a trend that saw a boom that looks set to continue into 2022 given the shortage of homes in the country.

£4.1bn was invested into to UK’s fast-growing ‘build-to-rent’ sector last year with more than half being spent in a bumper fourth quarter. Close to £2bn worth of deals are already in train for this year with more being marketed. Research analyst for Savills, Richard Valentine-Selsey said the sector still had room to grow: “2021 was a landmark year for new entrants. About a third of all deals were struck by new entrants, a sign that we are still very early on in the development of this sector.”
