Investing in Liverpool Student Accommodation
Liverpool Benefits From High Rental Yields and Maximum Capital Appreciation
Culture, a rich history, a huge £960 million Liverpool One open-air shopping centre, some of the best bars and restaurants in the UK, beautiful Grade listed buildings, and an abundance of art galleries and museums, all make this one of the best places to live for students with many of them remaining in the city after graduation. In fact, half of Liverpool’s population now consists of young professionals.
Rents are expected to grow by 17.6% over the next five years in Liverpool in keeping with this relentless demand, with the student development market the first to reap the benefits from high rental yields and maximum capital appreciation. This is especially true next to hot areas of investment such as Great Homer Street where City Point Liverpool is so aptly located.
The Rising Demand for Student Accommodation in Liverpool
The purpose-built student accommodation sector is growing rapidly in the UK, now worth a total of £46 billion. Liverpool, in particular, is a superb location for student buy to let investments like City Point because of its several highly prestigious universities, such as the University of Liverpool, Liverpool Hope University, and Liverpool John Moores University.
Welcoming around 70,000 students to these institutions alone, there is a drastic undersupply of appropriate accommodation in the area. The universities themselves only account for 16% of beds available to students, opening up the industry to the private sector who are bridging the gap between the number of Liverpool students and the amount of student accommodation Liverpool.
