Buy-to-let report shows gap in the market for student property investments

Select Property has released a buy-to-let report examining the market.


  • Select Property has published a report on the buy-to-let market
  • This looked at the current conditions of the buy-to-let industry
  • It also looked at the future of the student property sector

A new report on the buy-to-let market in the UK has revealed profitable opportunities in investing in student accommodation.

Select Property published The UK Buy-to-Let Report earlier this week (June 8th), which gave a glimpse about current property market conditions, showed why many investors are considering renting out properties and looked at the strong yields that can be gained from becoming a landlord.

It also examined the future of buy-to-let and said student accommodation was growing in popularity among property investors, as a result of the growing number of students in the UK and the climb in rental demand.

Director of Select Property Giles Beswick stated that the report will inform investors about the “broad array of opportunities available, including investing in student accommodation – a niche market that has seen investors earn higher returns than they typically have through other investment options”.

The findings also showed the buy-to-let market has been growing, quoting figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders, which reported £4.2 billion was lent out for buy-to-let loans during the first quarter of the year. This is a increase from the same period last year when £3.7 billion was borrowed by landlords.
