Resilient Build-to-Rent: Steering through the pandemic

13 Minute Listen


It’s a case of hindsight in 2020 – thanks to income supplement schemes and social welfare, the rental income from multifamily/build-to-rent assets has been more stable than rental income from commercial/industrial assets.

In this episode, we breakdown the build-to-rent market, discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on this asset class and how it could recover quicker than any other property type, while offering a safe haven for investors.
