Press release   •   Mar 18, 2012 15:22 EDT

CBRE research has revealed that £836m was committed to deals and development in 2011, up from £770m in 2010 and £350m in 2009, highlighting a rise in the number of investors looking to buy student accommodation.

Attributing to this demand, a 2012 Knight Frankreport has named student rooms as the UK's highest performing commercial property market, prompting a rise in investors entering student room investments.

Highlighting the success of the asset class, the report revealed that investors can secure average 11.5% return which is only slightly below the 13.5% recorded in the previous year. Despite this small reported decline, the 2012 Knight Frank Student Property Report stated the returns were still much higher than other commercial asset classes.

"Student Room Investment outperformed every other commercial property class and delivered consistent returns throughout the economic downturn,"James Pullan, Head of Student Property at Knight Frank commented.

For investors looking to buy student accommodation, London-based investment company Experience International is currently offering a new low entry development in this high performing UK buy-to-let market.

Located in Liverpool, which is home to a number of leading institutions including The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool Hope University and The Liverpool University of Performing Arts, the new development is ideally situated within walking distance of a number of educational institutions.

Answering to the demand for student accommodation in the area, this is a truly hands-off and passive investment and, with 12% of Liverpool's population made up from students, the city is a strong location to invest in.

Managed by a proven and long-standing management company, investors can buy student accommodation units and will receive 10.03% annual NET yield which is assured in year 1.

With en-suite units available from £48,000, the fully refurbished building in the heart of Liverpool offers a range of on-site facilities including a gym and investors can secure a 12 month tenancy to help safeguard their returns.
