What is build to rent?

What is build to rent or BTR? Put simply, the build to rent model in Australia offers tenants long-term security and secure terms for their rental agreements. It is increasingly popular, with experts in the property industry tipping more than 7000 units will be available within a few years.

In the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe the model is well established and growing. In the US, the model is often called a multi-family development.

The build to rent model in Australia will mean one owner develops the property, which will operate under a single management structure. It’s in the best interest of the owner and manager to make the rental apartments the best units in Melbourne to attract long-term residents. We know this is not always the way in the private market, where different owners have all the different units in the building.

Essence Communities is also focused on delivering great services to make our apartments the best apartments in Melbourne.

We understand that finding a rental property in Melbourne can be difficult.

At our rental-only buildings we include a range of community services to boost your lifestyle. These include yoga or pilates rooms, gyms, entertainment zones, pools and children’s play areas. There are barbeques and outdoor dining zones, and private entertaining areas you can book to have friends and family around.

And you can have a pet! Keep your beloved fur or feathered baby with you, with approval from management. At some sites we can arrange extra services such as dog-grooming or walking.
