PropTech to drive your Build to Rent proposition
In the institutionally led Build to Rent market the key to successful returns is securing long-term tenancies to avoid voids whilst controlling costs to maximise the gross to net return. In conjunction with project and consultancy work with most of the top 10 UK Build to Rent developers Ringley have brought forward two apps specifically for the emerging BTR market.
