Arena House Student Hall, Liverpool
Following the runaway success of our previous two student accommodation products in Liverpool – Beacon and Streatlam Towers – Property Frontiers now launches Arena House. This is a special investment opportunity located at the city’s beating heart.
Outstanding Features Include:
- High net yields of 9.45%
- 1st year guaranteed rental
- City centre location close to Liverpool One shopping centre
- Luxury accommodation including gym, media centre and fast broadband access
- 58 units available at only £45,000!
Arena House is a high quality development at the commercial heart of a renewed and thriving city. It was formerly an innovative art gallery and music venue noted for its indie bands – this reflects its position in a vibrant, youthful area with a rich cultural heritage. Arena House is near the city’s three prestigious universities: Liverpool; Liverpool John Moores and Liverpool Hope.
Liverpool is home to more than 80,000 students and demand for student accommodation in the city grew by more than 12% in 2008-09. Student numbers are increasing still further this year and so yield will remain consistently high. The new system of HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation) licences is restricting supply and so fuelling demand for student accommodation. And there is a good exit strategy – few units of this kind are open to individual buyers.
Economic downturn means that more people are enrolling in or returning to higher education. This makes student halls a recession-proof investment. Arena House is a top of the range product at an affordable price – a perfect opportunity to invest in a market where consistently high yields are guaranteed.
