Look to Liverpool for double digit returns from student accommodation

May 26, 2011Article by Ray Withers

With Knight Frank deeming student accommodation a “critical component of a balanced investment portfolio” in their latest Student Report and the Sunday Express rating it amongst the “best performing sectors for landlords” it’s no wonder that we have been inundated with enquiries for our latest student accommodation opportunity – Hatton Garden, Liverpool.

Our most prestigious student accommodation investment to date, the sixth from our experienced Partners, Hatton Garden perfectly meets the growing demand for high quality purpose built accommodation in the city of Liverpool.

Home to 53,000 students and growing, Liverpool is one of the UK’s premier university towns bring ranked 2nd in the just released survey for top cities in which to study in the UK by the website www.accommodationforstudents.com. There is however an ongoing shortage of suitable accommodation for students which is being met not only by private developers but the universities themselves; the University of Liverpool has announced £600m of investment is to be made, £250m of which has been earmarked for redevelopment of the university’s student accommodation.

Many of our clients who are already seeing returns from our previous student accommodation projects in Liverpool have invested in Hatton Garden, keen to secure once again double digit returns of 10.03% NET yield p.a. with the first year assured. They and other investors are set to receive income from 1st March 2012.

Having visited Liverpool myself on a number of occasions I can vouch for both the huge demand for student accommodation in the city and the high quality of our developments. Each of the bedrooms come complete with a bed, desk, wardrobe and flat screen TV with the communal lounges spacious and comfortable, modern bathrooms and kitchens with complete with branded appliances and on-site gymnasium a real bonus.

If I was at university again, it would be ‘so long student digs and welcome Hatton Garden’, that’s for sure!
