Unprecedented changes are happening in the residential property market. Its rapid pace is being fuelled by basic supply and demand dynamics, changes to economic and planning policies, a constantly evolving international marketplace and a crucial shift in attitudes to the sector, both as an asset and an investment class.
Today, two thirds of current investors are seeking to increase their exposure to residential property. Seismic changes in the way people now live, work and shop are having a huge impact on the fundamental makeup, design and tenure of new developments. Across the UK’s major cities, improved infrastructure and progressive design is breathing new life into old buildings, with previously unthought-of uses comfortably thriving side by side. These changes are having a profound effect on the residential real estate market and, in turn, on the advice we are giving to clients in master planning schemes, creating quality new places and optimising returns over time.
