Liverpool Student Property Market Attracting Foreign Investors

UK Student Property is Booming

It’s no secret that confidence in the student property market has peaked in recent years, opening up rare opportunities for investors to take advantage of excellent rental yields and no-fuss arrangements.  

Although many UK investors have been straight onto the student property trend, investors from overseas are no strangers to this flourishing market that owes itself to the solid foundations of the UK’s higher education system. With most student properties fully-managed by local agencies, investors can commit to a venture in the student sector from the comfort of their home country.

Such an established and globally renowned educational sector assures a continuous flow of tenants in need of student accommodation that outstrips supply. A predicament absent from so many other countries, internationals looking for an investment in a market other than residential are likely to wind up in UK student property territory.

Liverpool is UK’s Best Student City

It’s true that many UK cities are benefiting from an increase in foreign investment. Nevertheless, Liverpool stands out from other urban areas as a top spot for student property investment. A combination of pull factors enticing tenants to select Liverpool as their city of study alongside affordable prices and excellent rental yields for investors makes this a city at the forefront of UK student property investment.

A City for Student Tenants

Students are firstly attracted to the high level of credibility associated with all three establishments. The redbrick University of Liverpool is ranked in the top 1% of education institutions in the world whilst Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool Hope University also rank within the top 75 according to league tables by The Complete University Guide.

Following on from this, Liverpool is a city identified by its eccentric culture across the UK and all over the globe. Students flock to the abandoned warehouse nightlife of the Baltic Triangle, the galleries and museums of the Albert Dock and the unconventional cafés on RopeWalks’ famous Bold Street.   

Affordability also plays a key role in asserting Liverpool as one of the best study cities in Britain. The cost of living here is relatively lower than other areas in the UK, from monthly rents to the cost of a weekly shop.  

A City for Investors

With 3 major universities and a total of over 70,000 students, overseas investors can be assured that there are plenty of tenants around looking for suitable accommodation. With investment companies locating the best student areas in close proximity to Liverpool’s city centre attractions and university campuses, it’s simple and stress-free for those abroad looking to select a student development that suits them.

In terms of regeneration, renaissance continues to sweep across the former Capital of Culture in the shape of colossal waterfront developments, improved train links, renovated ports and of course, student accommodation. The positivity radiating from numerous contemporary major projects sets the city in good stead for the future and foreign investors can be assured that the latest student developments are being designed with this modern ethos in mind.

Furthermore, Liverpool’s excellent potential for rental yields is on every international investor’s radar, with an average of 8% considered a strong  rental return on student investment. Initial average property costs are low, supplying the opportunity for maximum capital appreciation over time.
