How do we build the UK's No.1 BTR brand?
Kooky is actively seeking to purchase developments from housebuilders and developers either during or after construction, and looking to make the whole process quicker and easier. It’s our mission to challenge and change anything that slows or stalls the development process. At Kooky we’re empowered by questioning the status quo and removing friction wherever we can.
- What if developers and house-builders could ensure they have no sales or marketing costs and a guaranteed exit strategy ?
- What if all offers were made with full board approval and were not subject to RICS Red Book valuation?
- What if a buyer could exchange contracts within one month?
- We believe this kind of Kooky thinking is the key to better and simpler brand building.
As part of Delph Property Group, who have 70+ years’ in the residential market and have purchased 1500+ units since 2013, we have £500m to invest by 2023. So, if you’re a developer or house-builder with a proven track record and a project of between 30 and 150 units that we can buy during or after construction, we should talk.
