The man behind the Ideal Flatmate rental platform has now set up a Build To Rent portal called Your Place.
All properties listed will be pre-approved by an in-house team which claims they will have “a range of additional amenities designed to improve the rental experience for residents” such as free Wi-Fi, concierge services and gyms.
Your Place says its users will predominantly be young professionals between the ages of 25 and 35, working in urban locations. Sharers will also be able to use the platform and use ideal flatmate’s matchmaking ability via a plug in.
The portal has a dedicated Enquiry Management team and claims to have the ability to conduct viewings when required and run on-site resident finder events.
Build To Rent developers already on board include Grainger, Get Living, Dandara and Vertus, with units in London, Manchester, Leeds and Aberdeen.
Co-Founder Tom Gatzen says: “We are excited about this new chapter in the business and the opportunity to become the go to place for renters seeking accommodation in the growing number of BTR homes in the UK.
“The sector is currently small in comparison to the US and rest of Europe, but this is fast changing as the housing market continues to shift towards people renting well into their 30s.
“Our goal is to help as many young professionals move into this new brand of rental properties with their extra amenities and benefits for the modern renter.”
