Growing Demand for Good Quality Student Accommodation – Investment

Many property experts have stated that there’s an increasing demand for high quality student accommodation in the United Kingdom, urging the commercial property developers to take advantage of this gap in the UK buy to let property market.

New figures reported from UCAS show a 2.5% rise in applicants for university places for the 2011/12 academic year. This increase in applicants has sparked concerns over the pressure on the already stretched student accommodation market and there are now calls for high quality student accommodation to be constructed to answer to the growing demand.

According to a spokesman from Experience International, investment in the student accommodation market is continuing to increase in the United Kingdom.

“Student accommodation investment is one of our newer assets classes that has proven very popular with our client base, more so than we initially thought. For this reason we are allocating additional resources into this market as we can see good potential growth into the foreseeable future.” stated Jerald Solis Business Development Manager at Experience International.

Jerald also highlighted the on-going demand for good quality student housing especially in the cities like Liverpool, which is interesting news for buyers looking to invest in the sector.

Liverpool is home to a couple of the top universities in the UK and is a popular choice for students from the UK and across the world. One good example of this kind of investment launched by Experience International is ‘St. Andrew’s Place’ which offers buyers a low entry level option into this highly lucrative market. St Andrew’s Places’ development Company is positive of maintaining their 100% occupancy track record that they guarantee investors will start receiving income from 1st September 2012.

The low risk student accommodation investment provides investors with 10.03% annual net yield – assured in year 1 – and as tenancies are in place for 12 months, investors will benefit from a hassle free, high yielding property investment.
