BTS + BTR October 2021 cover

BTS + BTR October 2021

  • Q3 2021 saw sales grow again, and this time it was broad market growth rather than just the BTR sector.
  • Construction starts were also up compared to Q2.
  • But construction completions have fallen significantly.
Executive Summary
BTR + BTS July 2021 cover

BTR + BTS July 2021

  • Q2 2021 saw a turnaround for the better.
  • Construction starts, completions and sales are all up on Q1 2021.
  • However, it is a welcome return of the BTR sector that has driven these increases, rather than any other market segment.
Executive Summary
BTS + BTR April 2021 cover

BTS + BTR April 2021

  • Developments priced and timed to get maximum benefit from the Help to Buy and temporary Stamp Duty incentives sold well during Q1 2021.
  • The rest have not done so well.
  • The net result is that fewer homes sold in London during Q1 2021 than for a long time.
  • However, there are reasons for optimism in the future.
Executive Summary
BTS + BTR January 2021 cover

BTS + BTR January 2021

  • Needless to say, 2020 was an unusual year.
  • However, sales held up better than expected. 
  • The numbers were bolstered by excellent results in Q1 and Q3, which offset less buoyant figures in Q2 and Q4.
  • BTR made an increasingly reduced contribution to the numbers as the year wore on, leaving Help to Buy and the overseas market to take up some of the slack.

Thirsty Skiing

Taking it to the mountain

Each year Thirsty Thursday gets an additional outing in The Alps. Skiers are London residential developers, agents, planning consultants and investors.

In January 2021 our popular Thirsty Skiing will be returning.

Run every year since 2011 we have visited the resorts of Morzine in France, St Anton in Austria, Verbier in Switzerland, Courmayeur in Italy and most recently La Clusaz. The previous trips have been a huge success and we imagine 2021 will keep the tradition going and be a full house.

For information on the 2021 trip and to find out if there are places available please email [email protected].

Latest Quarterly BTS+BTR Analysis October 2021

Q3 2021 saw the strongest number of new homes sold in London for the last 12 months. And, unlike the growth seen in Q2, this was not just due to Build to Rent (BTR) activity. Sales agents and marketing suites across the wider market have had many stories of success to tell.

Latest Quarterly BTS+BTR Analysis July 2021

London’s private residential development industry has delivered a significantly better set of figures during Q2 2021 than it did in Q1. Construction starts and sales rose, while construction completions were the highest in a couple of years.  

Some people may have expected this, given the stories of frenzied marketing suite activity in the run up to 30 June 2021 - the last day that buyers could take advantage of the full stamp duty holiday up to £500,000.
