UK student property investment remains a great bet for Southeast Asian investors. While Brexit may have negatively influenced the economic prospects of the UK, it has done little to quell demand for student housing. Additionally, the decline of the pound against regional currencies has made UK real estate more affordable than ever before.
Our Listing of the Week recognises this trend. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in Islington Plaza offers an eight percent assured rental return for three years. The project is situated in the heart of Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, a key educational hub. It has everything a student could want, including a gym, cinema room and on-site coffee shop.
Currently, Liverpool is home to the second highest rental yields in the UK. Additionally, a large student population makes Liverpool an ideal location for those investors wanting to leverage the education boom. More than 50,000 university students are studying in Liverpool with properties, such as Islington Plaza, catering to the unique needs of this segment in high demand.
Benoit Properties International, the UK’s leading student real estate developer, is behind the project. The nine-storey complex has a total of 317 units and will be completed later this year. If you’re considering a UK student property investment, a unit at Islington Plaza is a wise choice.
