Residential investment was robust in Q2 totaling £1.8bn, with the Build-to-Rent and Student Accommodation sectors continuing to record high demand.

Build-to-Rent investment remained strong and a further single-family housing deal completed in Q2. A high volume of under offer deals is pointing to positive momentum for the second half of the year.

High demand for Student Accommodation is exerting upward price pressure and resulting in the tightest yields in a decade.

Sentiment in the Co-living and Affordable housing sectors remains positive. Q2 saw the second-largest Co-living scheme granted planning permission, and despite recent government reform, interest in Shared Ownership accommodation remains high.
