We enter 2023 under the shadow of a global recession, significantly deeper in the UK than in other G7 countries, against a backdrop of severe inflation and rising interest rates. As a result, the environment will continue to be challenging for property, with high costs of debt, and we anticipate, lower investment volumes.
However, we believe the green shoots of economic recovery will start appearing towards the end of H1. For good developers with access to funding, there are still good opportunities for schemes that are started in 2023 and completed towards the end of 2024, especially as the outlook for housing supply looks set to deteriorate sharply.
