About.

Since our inception, Avingdon has been focused on building a strategic, quality advisory practice to the burgeoning for-rent 'living' sectors.

Avingdon is a privately held real estate advisory business focused on the UK's Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA), Co-living and Build to Rent (BTR) alternative residential sectors.

We provide specialist investment and development consultancy advice to a wide variety of investors, developers and landowners.

We understand the full development life-cycle and are able to add value throughout. Our advisory services include focused investment strategies, nationwide deal origination and proactive planning, development and asset management initiatives.

As a niche business, we have an in-depth understanding of our marketplace and provide clients with a personalised service that combines a UK-wide strategic outlook with local expertise. We work closely with our clients to help deliver design-led, amenity-rich schemes that help foster vibrant resident communities and truly connect with their surrounding neighbourhoods.
