The State of the Property Market 2018

What does the future hold for the UK property market?

That’s the question on the minds of our investors, who packed out the Clubhouse in Mayfair to hear industry leaders, including Cogress CEO Tal Orly, share their thoughts on what 2018 has in store for UK property.

This year, uncertainty is a key theme in the property markets with Brexit, supply concerns, government taxation and housing policy all contributing to colour investor sentiment and influence market performance. The event aptly showcased the diversity of opportunities still available in property, despite market uncertainty, whether that be location hotspots or new growth classes, such as retirement villages.

Cogress was delighted to welcome Gráinne Gilmore, Head of UK Residential Research at Knight Frank, and Savills’s Head of Residential Development Sales, George Cardale to discuss the factors currently influencing the market, and their thoughts on how the industry will adapt to changing pressures.

The evening kicked off with Gráinne’s informative overview of the nation property market. She was later joined by George and Tal for a lively panel, where our speakers debated everything from market disruptors to technological advances and how their businesses are adapting to the current climate. The floor was then open to our investors, who joined the debate with questions on topics as wide ranging as transport upgrades, help-to-buy and build-to-rent.

Taking a Look at the UK Property Market

A Sit Down with Savills George Cardale

Gráinne Gilmore
Head of UK Residential Research,
Knight Frank

Gráinne tracks, analyses and forecasts trends across the UK property market, producing bespoke research with a particular focus on residential development.

“Affordability is becoming a key issue in some parts of the UK housing market.”

George Cardale
Head of Residential Development Sales, Savills
George specialises in the sales and marketing of new build and refurbished property. He has 25 years’ experience in advising clients on the most effective mix, size and type of accommodation in order to maximise values.

“Bristol is a great place to invest as one of the hotspots, but I think places like Birmingham and Manchester also very strong.”

Tal Orly
CEO and Co-Founder, Cogress
The founder of Symbia Realty Portfolio and an experienced global investor himself, Tal has been involved in large, complex urban property development projects since 1992. He has vast experience in acquisition, development and resale in both the residential and commercial sectors.

“Build-to-rent will eventually become an operational business. So you need to make sure that you have the skills to operate the business, or it makes no commercial sense.”
