The Covid-19 pandemic has underlined the strength of the prime residential market as an investment class, says Uma Rajah, chief executive of lender CapitalRise.
"Historically it is the most resilient part of the UK property market," she says. "After each down turn that has been recorded it bounces back incredibly fast... and the pandemic has just proved its resilience again."
In this podcast, Rajah joins EG deputy editor Tim Burke and fellow guests Vanessa Hale from BNP Paribas Real Estate's Strutt & Parker and George Brooksbank of Fairway Capital to discuss what the pandemic has revealed about the sector and how changing homeowner demands are reflected in the investment and development markets.
