Proven during times of economic volatility, UK student property continues
to be one of the most popular overseas investments for South African buyers –
here’s what makes it stand out.
Home to some of the world’s most recognisable universities, the UK is one of the most popular places to study for students from around the world.
Consequently, the UK is also one of the world’s biggest student property markets – and one of the most popular investments for South African investors looking to move their wealth overseas.
Crucially, student property is famed for its resilience. Following
the 2008 global downturn, UK student property was one of the world’s best
performing assets, as more people sought a higher education for when the job
market picked up again.
But while demand is relentlessly high, supply of student
property in the UK remains significantly low.
Purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) is the fastest
growing and most in-demand accommodation choice among UK students today.
Modern living spaces, state-of-the-art facilities and the central locations students are demanding. PBSA provides the amenities and experience students will pay premiums to access.
However, at this moment, the provision of PBSA in the UK can
only meet 24% of total demand.
With this imbalance driving investment returns, it’s an
opportunity which has already prompted South African buyers to take advantage.
Vita Student is the UK’s leading PBSA provider, with over
7,500 properties delivered, and in the pipeline, nationwide. Since 2006, it has
delivered industry-leading investments to 150 South African investors.
