Top 10 reasons to invest in student property
  1. There are over 2 million students in the UK and nearly 400,000 are from overseas. Currently there are only 524,000 purpose-built student rooms available so the demand for student property is massive.

  2. Student numbers in the UK have increased by 50% over the last 10 years. The vast majority of overseas students in the UK come from non EU countries so Brexit will not affect numbers.

  3. Over 30 of the Top 200 universities highlighted in the Times Higher Education ranking are in the UK, making the country a magnet for overseas students.
  4. Student developments are fully managed so all aspects of the tenancy are looked after for you, allowing for a hassle-free, hands-off investment.

  5. Student property is a top performing asset class which has seen consistent growth and increased annual returns, even during recession.

  6. Student number caps have been lifted in the UK which means that universities can take on as many students as they can handle, creating a strong need for student property.

  7. Students have become more discerning and will opt for purpose-built student accommodation over traditional HMO properties because they are higher specification and more tailored to the needs of the student.

  8. Purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) is renowned for being high quality, having excellent internet connectivity, being secure and having rents that are inclusive of bills. This makes like much easier for the students.

  9. Student property investment is a great way of supplementing retirement income and, for investors who are 55 or over, there are opportunities to access retirement funds early to make an investment.

  10. Many student property investments offer guaranteed rental returns for the first five years making it a very secure investment.
