Arguably the hottest movement in property of recent years, build-to-rent shows no sign of slowing down – which is why it’s important that you have the latest analysis on where the sector is going next.
Our panel of industry leaders will go beyond just BTR to tackle the entirety of the PRS market, including the growing co-living, senior living and single-family rental sectors. Along the way, they’ll take the temperature on BTR, weigh in on the amenity race and discuss pipeline concerns.
