The student rental market continues to grow as the number of people attending universities increases every year, presenting an incredible opportunity to anyone buying student accommodation in the UK.
In a standard savings account or ISA, you would receive an interest rate of anything from 0.5% to 1.45%. Whereas if you buy UK student accommodation as an investment, you’d be making upwards of 7% NET interest every year – with the added benefit of potential capital appreciation.
