In our core countries the Netherlands, Germany and France, BPD develops many thousands of owner-occupied and rental houses every year. In addition to our excellent reputation in the private market, we, as a part of the Rabo Real Estate Group, also have extensive experience in project sales to investors. Over the past five years the value of our international investment housing sales amounted to 1 billion euro. BPD combines its strong international position with regionally tailored solutions. We appreciate that real estate is essentially a local business.
BPD serves international investors in multiple countries simultaneously and harbours the expertise for successful project and area development on a European scale. The rental market is on the rise in all these areas in which we operate and growth is expected to continue over the forthcoming years. All our markets require proper and tailored expertise in matters of funding, property management and fiscal-legal consequences, especially due to the fact that the circumstances vary per country and area. In our capacity as a large, international and professional party, BPD has the expertise, experience and savvy to offer investors sound and methodical advice and support on all levels – including specific, regionally determined issues.
BPD’s investment products are distinct in terms of rentability, realistic initial returns, low risks and stable value. BPD exclusively develops houses in areas with long-term household growth potential, a favourable economic outlook and a(n anticipated) housing shortage, both in terms of quality and quantity. Our products have a stable, inflation-proof cash flow and are developed in mature economies with favourable long-term perspectives.
We combine our strong international position with tailored regional solutions and we recognise that real estate is essentially a local business. The differences between our core countries are enormous, there are even clear regional differences within the Netherlands, France and Germany themselves. BPD knows these differences like no other. Because of our local presence, we experience and hear about the needs of local consumers and the regional market trends first-hand. We maintain strong relationships and close contact with all of the involved stakeholders. Over the years, we have become deeply rooted in the market, and this serves as the very foundation of our specialisation in regional tailor-made solutions.
Our newly built projects are planned according to the latest insights into housing developments and infrastructure. We constantly invest in market research, concept development, process management and financial engineering. We conduct extensive research into consumer desires and needs and choose to involve our consumers in the development of innovative housing concepts, for the generations of today and tomorrow.
