With the UK Build to Rent (BTR) sector on track to potentially surpass a projected 300,000 homes by 2023, the industry is undoubtedly experiencing remarkable growth, as highlighted in the recent Savills BTR report.
Savills’ report states that half-year investment volumes for the sector now stand at £2.1bn, and whilst lower than the same time in 2022, it is higher than all preceding years.
Approximately 82,500 BTR homes have already been completed, with an additional 49,500 homes currently under construction and a further 119,300 homes in various pipeline stages, including pre-application, which culminates to an estimated 251,200 homes in various stages of development.
