Build to Rent

Housing affordability is a real challenge for everyday Australians, intensified even further by sharply rising housing prices during the Covid-19 pandemic. The percentage of Australians unable to access home ownership, and therefore renting long term, is on the rise.

Build to Rent models are specifically designed, built, and managed as a single asset for long term ownership and rental. Build to Rent developments seek returns from long-term rental income, rather than up-front sales or capital growth, driving an increased focus on tenant experience and satisfaction. Build to Rent targets the growing renter market seeking secure long-term rentals with increased amenity.

Key characteristics of Build to Rent include:

  • Design
  • Central location providing amenity and public transport.
  • Building amenities and services befitting the size of the development (e.g., concierge, business centre, gym, BBQ facilities, pool etc)
  • Longer term tenure
  • Community creation and tenant experience
  • Net income streams optimised through operational efficiencies.
