The Residential Market

London is filled with modern day nomads, and we, at WALI + Partners count ourselves among them. London is truly one of the most international cities in the world but with that vast diversity comes a great need for housing.

London's Projected Population Change

Data suggests London’s population is forecast to rise from 8.3 million to 10 million by 2031. London’s growing population and swelling working class citizens are in need for safe, clean, urban real estate. As London is steadily growing, technology, demographics and environmental issues are becoming new value drivers in the way its residents live. City officials, landlords and developers will become more innovative about how they design and build residential real estate, seeking to use space more efficiently.

Our team are the next generation of advisors. We are young, fresh and deploying an innovative strategy to acquire, and lightly refurbish, residential real estate in newly emerging segments of London. We pride ourselves on value creation and providing safe affordable housing to London’s nomads.

As the institutionalisation of the real estate industry has occurred through sector specialist operators providing asset management expertise and joint venture operating models, we aim to provide excellence in this prototypical structure for our investors. Our residential portfolios team aim to aggregate properties and create value from portfolios of scale as well as enhance troubled or undervalued assets.
