Why do Gower & Mae feel that student property in London represents a good opportunity?
Many of us have fond memories of our time spent at university or have a friend or relative who talks enthusiastically of their first years away from home and their journey into adulthood through life at university. However it must be said that creating income at university is often the last thing on a student’s mind, it also fair to assume that for the majority of us university was an enjoyable but expensive experience. For many of us our first experiences of budgeting and planning for expenditure on the many student necessities such as Tuition fees, books, stationary, computers, socialising, recreation, food and of course accommodation, were formed when at University and each year there is a truly staggering amount of money spent by students all across the UK.
Suffice to say University is big business and huge profits can be made in this sector. Buy to Let Investment into Student Accommodation (or Pods) for many private investors is a relatively new concept, but one that defiantly deserves attention. The Student Accommodation sector has been subject to significant investment for many years by Corporate and Institutional investors and it is considered an important aspect of a well balanced commercial investment portfolio. In 2011 alone over £800 million of investment went into this sector, industry commentators expect this trend to continue in 2012 and beyond. Student Accommodation features in a number of main stream Pension and investment funds and the sector has seen steady growth over a number of years in spite of the global financial crisis.
Domestic and Foreign investment into this sector has endured and increased in recent years, London proves to be a highly popular destination for many students both from the UK and from overseas and in turn the demand for high quality purpose built housing is on the increase. Modern students expect more from their accommodation than in the past. Today the requirement for private en suite facilities, high quality finishes & furnishings and high speed broadband access are considered essential by many potential occupants.
The Gower & Mae team believe that purchasing well built, professionally managed and high specification modern student property in close proximity to major universities in key London locations can offer potential for high sustained rental demand and for significant capital appreciation.
Through ownership of individual buy to let student rooms our clients can benefit from an asset class rarely available to the retail market by receiving income directly from their units rental much the same as owning a buy to let property. Due to the high demand for London based student investment opportunities and this projects location we expect this opportunity to be received well by the market. With developer assured rental in year 1 of 9% NET and with the development being ideally situated within an area of London with a large student population our clients can acquire income generating assets with long term scope for capital appreciation and high ongoing rental demand.
