With an acute understanding of clients’ individual objectives, funding requirements and the wider market dynamics, CBRE Ireland’s Build to Rent (BTR) team provides access to the solutions that clients need to achieve their development and funding ambitions. The team has extensive experience within both real estate and investment banking and partners with landowners, developers, investors and investment funds to source flexible and innovative opportunities for sales, acquisitions, restructuring, refinancing and development.  
Combining exceptional relationships across a carefully selected network of domestic and international equity providers, with a sound understanding of their key requirements the BTR team can ensure a targeted and efficient process, favourable terms and pricing. 
CBRE's BTR development team is also the only development team to have an embedded research and design consultancy that specialises in investment and development in the Irish Build to Rent market. From dedicated research to design and financial modelling expertise, the team draws on a broad range of knowledge and experience to empower clients to make fully-informed investment decisions and take full advantage of opportunities in this exciting and rapidly emerging alternative investment sector. 
Through an iterative process between researchers, architects and financial modellers the team offers in-depth analysis on local supply and demand dynamics, such as advising on who will live at a potential development, what they will pay, how many renters can afford this, what these renters can expect in terms of the attributes of the building and how the proposition sits within the local market context to determine the optimum market-ready scheme to maximise returns.
