Why Invest In Student Property?
There are a number of reasons that investing in student property in the UK is a good place to put your money.
Investing in student property is a good idea for a multitude of different reasons, and here are just a few of them:
Student numbers on the up
In recent years the number of students in the UK has consistently been increasing and there are hundreds of thousands of students that enrol in University within the UK every year, most of which need to sort accommodation.
Overseas students increasing
Another factor to consider is that the amount of students coming from overseas has also been growing as the UK universities continue to increase in reputation. These students will of course need accommodation and often favour city centre based locations.
Significant yield returns
Student properties can offer a significant return on yield with the UK average per annum sitting at 7.8% according to Knight Frank.
Types of Student Property
If you are planning on investing in student property, there are two main types of property that you might consider purchasing.
Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs)
You’ll need to budget for a licence, if it occupies more than five people in more two or more separate properties, to invest in these types of property, however, they can be extremely profitable. They allow you to split up a house into individual accommodation with a room per person and a shared communal area, meaning you will receive rent from each tenant individually.
Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA)
These are often flat blocks or apartments built nearby the university which can be rented out to students. Universities favour these and use them as student property facilities and spend money and time marketing them, free marketing essentially!
