In 2015, a total of 532,300 people entered higher education in the UK – a 3% increase on the year before. Indeed, it was a record year globally, with over $15 billion invested in the student sector worldwide.
Unsurprisingly, demand for student accommodation has soared and increasing numbers of landlords are investing in UK property with a view to rent to students. It offers excellent investment potential, with a solid monthly income and the possibility to make good profit from capital growth – here’s more information.
Why Buy-to-Let Property for Sale for Students?
Student property is frequently the highest performing asset class – with landlords enjoying higher gross rental returns than the national average. It also offers more reliability, as demand for student housing doesn’t look likely to fall any time soon.
Additionally, growing numbers of wealthy international students mean that there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy a higher rental income, and the security that comes with having a reliable guarantor (i.e. the student’s parents) is also attractive.
