THE UK BUY-TO-LET MARKET

The demand for rental stock in the UK is the highest it has ever been,
as the continued rise in house prices ensures that first-time buyers
cannot afford to take that first step onto the property ladder.

Instead, tenants are looking for high-quality rental accommodation
in properties which they can essentially move straight into,
without the hassle of waiting for it to be redecorated or repaired.

Purposed Built Student Accommodation:

According to Knight Frank’s 2014 Property Insight Report, the student accommodation sector has produced positive rental growth every year of the economic downturn.

The sector has demonstrated that, given the choice, students will elect to pay significantly more for PBSA accommodation than HMO stock.

This pervasive demand for a British education shows no sign of fading as university applications are at record highs. UCAS figures for the 2013/14 intake have indicated that nationally, university acceptances are at their highest ever levels.

By choosing to invest in student accommodation in a regional town or city, investors will receive higher than average yields in areas that have a shortage of accommodation, guaranteeing recurrent rental demand in a prosperous market.

Compared to other property investments, student accommodation stands out by dependably offering high returns.

According to LSL Property Services, investors are able to expect an average of over 7% as a rental yield, which far exceeds typical values of 5.3% for residential buy-to-let properties in the UK.

The popularity of student accommodation among investors is effectively driven by reliable occupancy rates of 99% or higher, as well as the structural under supply.

Purposed Built High Quality Accommodation:

No investment can ever be considered safe, but there are certain sectors, like buy-to-let, where you can minimise your risk.

Purchasing a buy-to-let property is once again being viewed as a way to generate a positive cash flow on your investment, as income is generated not only on rent, but from the capital appreciation gained on the property from the start.

Investors and Landlords are capitalising on the rising demand of boutique, high-quality accommodation in thriving city centre locations, in addition to the shortage of passable properties that fulfil tenants needs, to generate high returns, not found anywhere else in the UK’s property market.

Manchester is one of the strongest rental markets outside of London, due to a severe shortage of new-build stock for at least the past five years.

Manchester’s buy-to-let market is currently flourishing, with HSBC estimating that investors could make up to 7.98% gross yields.

The booming population has seen a 19% increase in the last decade to 2.55 million. Plus, with exciting transport projects such as HS2 and One North providing high speed connections to the city, the growth doesn’t look set to stop.
