Property bonds can be utilised to finance either residential or commercial property developments, or a combination of both – this will depend on the specific bond.
Residential property bonds generally aid small and medium-sized housebuilders in delivering much-needed housing developments in the locations – and at the time – they’re needed most.
These developments are typically smaller and more exclusive than those built by national housebuilders, resulting in opportunities for SME housebuilders to utilise brownfield land which is often overlooked by their national counterparts as it does not provide the scale they are usually searching for.
The benefits of developing on this brownfield land include preserving the beautiful countryside in the UK and helping to regenerate communities by turning unused locations into bespoke, high-quality housing.
Because of their forward-thinking, agile nature, small and medium-sized housebuilders are also often able to provide mixed-tenure developments more easily. These can include houses to buy and rent, as well as boasting schemes such as shared ownership and rent-to-buy.
The tenures offered will be delivered based on what is most appropriate for the area, and the mixed-tenure nature of the developments results in them appealing to a wider range of prospective home-movers.
