Sally Fraser, of Stacks Property Search, says: “With students, landlords have a guaranteed market that is predictable whatever is happening in the economy.” Students want well-modernised, clean, low-maintenance properties that are close to their university and social life.
Sally Fraser, of property search firm Stacks, pinpoints Brighton for its good yields (5pc to 7.5pc.) “Student property is generally a sector that suits investors seeking high returns rather than strong capital growth. Many use a student portfolio to create income in retirement rather than rely on pensions.”
