2018 has been a year that has once again brought many changes to both the housing industry and the world of strategic land, and with Brexit just around the corner, at Intro Crowd we are curious to see how 2019 will shape the industry for the years to come.

As 2018 draws to a close and we reflect once again on a busy and successful year, we thought we’d put together a little blog post containing the five articles you need to read from our Insights blog before 2019.

So without further ado, here are the five essential blog posts you need to read before 2019: 

  1. The Number of Unoccupied Homes in the UK Equates to Double the Number Needed Each Year to Solve the Housing Crisis - So Why are they Still Empty? (Link to this post: http://insights.introcrowd.com/the-number-of-unoccupied-homes-in-the-uk-equates-to-double-the-number-needed-each-year-to-solve-the-housing-crisis-so-why-are-they-still-empty)

    There are approximately 600,000 empty homes across the UK in a time where, as a country, we need to see a minimum of 300,000 new homes built every year. In this blog post we ask why they are still standing empty?
  2. Is This the End of the £100,000 Flat in London? (Link to this post: http://insights.introcrowd.com/is-this-the-end-of-the-100000-flat-in-london)

    This year, the last property valued at £100,000 was sold in London meaning there is no longer any residential properties for sale in London valued at £100,000 or under, further highlighting the affordability crisis in the capital.
  3. Are the Government House Building Targets Realistic? ( Link to this post: http://insights.introcrowd.com/are-the-government-house-building-targets-realistic)
