A LUCRATIVE STUDENT ACCOMMODATION INVESTMENT
According to research carried out in 2016 by Knight Frank, some £3.1 billion was invested in purpose-built student accommodation which is more than double the level of investment seen in 2013-2014. In fact, Liverpool’s student accommodation sector alone is worth £256 million with the majority of these flats/houses being located within the city centre – it is worth noting that students currently make up 52% of city centre residents.
Figures from very recent research conducted have reflected a 37% surge in demand for purpose-built student accommodation in the city and its surrounding regions over the past 18 months. This is clear indication that there is a market for this type of property investment.
