Building strategies – understanding regional housing markets


Building strategies

In association with Hometrack

With the government promising to build 300,000 homes a year by the end of the current Parliament, housing providers are under pressure to develop across all tenures.

But as RPs look to take a more commercial approach, do they have a comprehensive understanding of their local housing market to be able to compete in the same space as established private developers?

Local authorities are also expected to play their part – not only in terms of land and planning but by building affordable homes again.

Regardless of what type of properties are being developed or where in the country they are built, being able to access accurate and up-to-date information on key factors such as land availability, house prices, affordability and rents is essential.

During 2018, HQN is teaming up with property market intelligence specialists Hometrack ( for a series of regional events designed to give housing providers an insight into local housing markets across the country, focusing on:

  • Predictions for the UK housing market in 2018
  • Analysis of affordability, rents and price trends in your local area
  • Learning from key development players
  • The local authority perspective on land and planning issues.

Every event will be tailored specifically to the region in which it is taking place with Hometrack tapping into its extensive data bank to provide expert insight and guidance. This event will take place in Birmingham and will cover the West Midlands.

You will also get to hear from key development players, including Homes England (TBC), housing associations and local authorities.
