UKAA Webinar: Single Family Housing White Paper Launch Presented by Howsy

Thursday 29th July 2021


Richard Berridge (Head of Strategy and Enterprise at Howsy), has researched, collated and written an industry-standard paper in the Single-Family Housing sector with industry insights from Brendan Geraghty (Founder of Centred Architecture) and Mark Farmer (Founder of CAST). The paper entitled: Single-Family Housing: the home of residential investment was published on 29th June 2021.

The pandemic has changed what we need from our homes. The working from home experiment has been largely successful and flexible working is becoming the new norm. So, now that more are leaving large urban conurbations, Individuals are now choosing a home based on a broader criterion: defensible space, flexibility of configuration, and reduced cost that non-urban living brings. However, with 80% of the UK population living in houses, and 90% preferring to live in one, what does this mean for BTR and housing design moving forward? Certainly, institutional investment in residential property needs to adapt accordingly.

Our Insightful webinar will explore the differences between the Single-Family Housing and Build-to-Rent asset classes and what learnings we can apply to Single-Family Housing from ten years of Build-to-Rent success. We welcome you to our discussion and look forward to being with you on the 29th of July at 10am.
