Residential Real Estate Investing

As an asset, housing is in a class of its own, offering low volatility in returns, a pooling of the rental risk and good liquidity on the resale of buildings – either as a block or in lots.

However, residential property is also subject to a tight regulatory leasing, investment and urban planning framework (rent controls, tenants’ rights, social housing requirements, pre-emption risk etc.), that must be taken into account when considering an investment.

Our Residential team offers every type of service relating to residential property: Valuation and development consulting, Block Sales and Individual Sales.

Our close-knit network of Residential consultants aims to build up a long-term relationship with each client. Their experience and multi-disciplinary skills guarantee the quality of their advice.
