People are living longer and the population is ageing, presenting significant challenges for the country but also opening up substantial opportunities for the property sector.
Older people are sitting on over £1 trillion worth of housing equity in the UK, often in homes that are bigger than they need. Large numbers are interested in down-sizing, yet the existing market frequently fails to meet their demands, which has been too focused on those who need to move rather than those who aspire to.
Developers have begun to recognise these opportunities but more innovation by them and others will boost the supply and mix of homes for this growing market. The retirement sector offers a fantastic opportunity to increase supply and improve standards through innovation and develop true ‘homes for life’, that meet the changing needs and lifestyle of the population.
Our team of retirement specialists work across the development, healthcare, housing and investment sectors, providing an integrated service at the forefront of the momentum in this sector.
