      Why Invest in Student Property?

      Student accommodation investments for sale are one of the best ways to invest in property right now, thanks to a variety of benefits:

      • Student property investments have lower costs than traditional property investments, and can usually be purchased for below-market-value prices.
      • Students prefer new-build properties, so purpose-built student accommodation (PBSAs) is thriving right now thanks to high-quality designs and construction.
      • Because of the lower costs, you can often get higher returns on student investment properties than with normal real estate investments, so you make money faster. Depending on the property type, you could be collecting rent from multiple tenants in the same property.
      • Student property for sale is usually located close to university campuses, meaning they are often in some of the best areas to invest in like Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham to appeal to students.
      • More students than ever are applying to universities, so the demand for high-quality student accommodation to buy is rising. 2022 saw a record number of UCAS applicants, according to official data.
      • Due to the nature of university term times, you have a predictable and consistent tenant cycle, unlike traditional investment properties where you may wait months to begin a new tenancy.

      By investing in student property for sale, you can benefit from high rental returns and tenant demand, as well as brand-new properties in some of the biggest cities in the UK.

      Student lettings are great investment opportunities for newcomers to property investment, They are easier to run than commercial property investments thanks to smaller overheads and higher demand, and you can reliably predict when you will receive rental income.
