What is the future for student property investments?

The Mistoria Group specialise in student investment properties and believe the future is looking bright for this sector. With many years of specialising in the HMO (houses in multiple occupancy) market, the group anticipate a strong demand over the coming years.

University figures strengthen the student property investments market

Figures published by UCAS demonstrates a steady year-on-year increase in the number of students applying for university – the media like to concentrate on the decline of applications made however the number of people applying are firmly on the up! In 2006 there were 506,304 applicants compared to a huge 700,161 in 2011; it is thought that the 2012 figures will match (if not accelerate) past these statistics.

What should you look for when considering student property investments?

When researching student property investments, there are two main things to consider; location and specification.  Students like convenience and minimal fuss. If your property is more than a short bus ride away from the university, chances are you’ll find it incredibly difficult to find tenants.

When it comes to specification, students are savvy; the nicer the specification the easier it is to rent out your property. Mod-cons are now expected in this very competitive market place so to achieve higher rental yields, the interior needs to step up to the mark.
