As September draws closer and students ready themselves for the start of another busy academic year, StudentPodshop takes a look at some of the best PBSA opportunities currently on the market.
Nelson Square, Bolton
Situated in up and coming Bolton, Greater Manchester, Nelson Square is perfectly located near a university which has seen rapidly increasing popularity over recent years.
Bolton has extremely good transport links with both its university and Manchester city centre for students to make the most of the city’s world famous nightlife and shopping.
A former hotel, Nelson Square was converted into student accommodation in 2012, reflecting the new trend for luxury student housing.
Boasting some of the best amenities available the highlight of the property is the communal area which was formerly the ballroom of the hotel, acting as the social hub of the building. The conversion also has pinball machines, pool tables and a projector for movies. In the studios there is free Wi-Fi and wall mounted LCD TVs. Also worth noting are the laundry room, gym, and reading room.
Most importantly prices start at an incredible £26,000 and go up to £48,500
New Bank House, Sheffield
Since its renaissance began in the early part of the previous decade, Sheffield has become a new urban destination for young professionals. Arriving in the city via train has now become an indicator of what to expect across the city with a new multimillion pound train station right in the middle of the city.
Sheffield has always benefited from being an extremely popular student location but recent developments have pushed that popularity into hyper drive and this can be seen with the number of prominent student developments going up all across the city.
Our offering is the incredible New Bank House located ideally in the centre on Queen Street. Within walking distance of both of the city’s famous universities the proximity to local amenities and nightlife is a real pull factor for the luxury student accommodation project.
Shopping, nightlife, transport, cafes and other important amenities are a stone’s throw away from the front door of New Bank House, but this isn’t the only feature. The building also offers a fully-equipped gymnasium, a laundry room, secure bicycle storage, an entertainment room and communal lounges.
Starting at just £85,000, New Bank House offers savvy investors a golden opportunity to make the most of the booming student property sector.
X1 Liverpool One Phase 1, Liverpool
X1 Liverpool One Phase 1 Apartments sits in the coveted L1 area of the city and has been built with young professionals, graduates and students in mind.
Differing from the other offerings on the list, x1 Liverpool One has been developed without the sole purpose of offering student accommodation and as such has some exciting and impressive amenities on site to tempt tenants with a taste for the finer things.
X1 Liverpool One offers its tenants an on-site gym, on-site residence cinema, complimentary Wi-Fi and Sky packages. Aside from this it also offers an incredible city centre location close to everything young professionals, graduates and students could possibly want.
Finished with ultra-modern interior designs and furnishings, the building really is a fine example of modern city living.
Prices begin at £79,950 for investors who are seeking an opportunity that offers appeal for all types of tenants.
As the new academic year approaches, beginning in September, now is an ideal time to either expand your portfolio or look into student property investment. Student numbers are steady, incomes are rising and demand for high quality accommodation is growing.
For a relatively small investment compared to other property types, it’s certainly worth entering into or growing your presence within this property sector.
