    BBC Build to Rent

    BBC article on the build to rent proposition on how it will impact the rental market. I am sure the facilities/high gloss finish will attract a lot of tenants. But perhaps, this is a new market? Will these, more polished halls of residence attract those young professionals living at home to move out sooner?

    I specialise in houseshares, and am a big advocate of this style of sociable living, having lived this way myself for a number of years. In my experience small-scale house-shares work as you know everyone and therefore people feel a connection and a responsibility to look after the place, keep things tidy and even cook-together.

    I wonder whether these developments will have challenges with anti-social behaviour, high maintenance costs etc as this sense of responsibility is diminished by the scale?

    On another note;  I cannot see a mature demographic being attracted to these types of developments? Has anyone heard of build to rent developments, aimed at an older demographic?
