Given the title of the UK’s top asset class by The Times due to the capability of delivering consistent returns, student accommodation investment has become an interesting addition for investors interested in a stable income stream.

Knight Frank the market specialists new report has shown that the sector has ‘outperformed every other commercial property class and delivered consistent returns throughout the economic downturn’, highlighting the attractiveness of Student accommodation investment for a growing number of investors

Typically student property for sale has seldom been available to the individual investor as universities and large groups of funds tend to purchase rooms before they are offered to the open market and landlords that do own student accommodation hold on to units due to the high sustained returns.

Demand is always high for student property investment as the underlying market fundamentals are positive, with supply restricted and high demand underpinning rental growth.

Analysing the best destinations for student property investment based on the supply and quality of the educational institution, Knight Frank ranked Bournemouth as the UK’s 15th most attractive area.  Many of the locations listed in the report have a limited development pipeline, with hardly any or no investment opportunities open to private investors.
