This year’s “boom or bust” property debate from the Economic Research Council will explore the future of housing, taking an in-depth look at the private rented sector.
The event, held in partnership with Deloitte Real Estate, will see a panel of very well-placed speakers look at various issues and opportunities facing the residential property sector, tackling questions such as:
- Are the increasingly competitive and innovative commercial real estate sector, historically low interest rates and an unattractive bond market all combining to nudge the UK away from being an owner-occupied-dominated market?
- The private rented sector (PRS) continues to expand with pace in the UK as novel solutions to the UK housing crisis are sought: is long term renting the solution?
- Will innovations such as modularisation or 3D printing revolutionise construction?
- Recent research by a range of parties has shown what has long been suspected: the millennial generation, blighted by both stagnating wages and rising house prices, now take decades longer than their parents’ generation to save for a deposit. Are the big hitters in UK PRS poised to offer a swathe of alternatives?
