Our CEO, Michael Dong, was a guest panellist at Insider North West’s Residential Property Breakfast event on 31st October 2018.
The main topics of discussion were private rental sector (PRS) and built-to-rent (BTR) developments, with the latter becoming an increasingly popular solution to the UK’s housing crisis. With tenures that offer greater stability and assured long-term rental incomes, BTR has become very attractive to tenants and developers alike.
The number of BTR homes in the North West is far surpassing all other areas, including London. This demonstrates how the region is leading the way in the development of these schemes.As a developer focusing solely on the North West market, Michael was very pleased to contribute to such a lively and relevant debate. He said:
“It was great to be involved in an event that celebrated the fantastic progress being made in the BTR market across the North West. The breakfast was very insightful and highlighted how the best way to build on this momentum is to create further PRS.”
Michael appeared alongside many leading industry experts, including Michael Howard of urban bubble and Darran Lawless of Peel Land and Property. The event took place in Liverpool, where Investar Property Group is proud to be a leading figure in the BTR market. Read about its plans to deliver 847 homes to the city via Insider North West here.
