Letting out a property to students can be a particularly
lucrative area of the rental market to get into and,
with students on the increase, it’s definitely
worth thinking about. If you are considering renting
out your property to students, then here are a few
points to consider:
goes without saying that, in order to attract the
interest of students seeking rental accommodation,
your property will need to be situated in a popular
University City or Town with a thriving student population.
Below we take a look a just a few of the most popular
University Towns and Cities to give you a taster of
what you can expect.
– Newcastle is actually the most popular city
with students which could quite possibly have something
to do with the low living costs however, the awe inspiring
architecture, heady nightlife and close proximity
to the countryside and sea also go a long way to making
this city a firm favourite.
– Brighton is an energetic seaside town with
an already heaving student population who like to
both work hard and play hard. As well as partyingBrighton
is also well known for it’s trendy shops and
bubbling gay communities.
– Liverpool is a proud city boasting some incredible
architecture including not one but two glorious cathedrals
as well as a rich history and plenty of culture for
the earnest student to sink their teeth into.
– Glasgow offers everything the fun loving,
party crazy, shopaholic student could wish for and
boasts a nightlife that really should be labelled
the ‘early morning life’ as revellers
in this University City quite literally party from
dusk till dawn. However, Glasgow is not all about
partying and for those who prefer the quieter side
of life there are plenty of green spaces and funky
little coffee shops scattered around the West End.
– Whilst not quite as cool and street wise as
Glasgow, Edinburgh has tonnes to offer from her breathtaking
architecture and rich history to a plethora of superb
restaurants and bars and is another firm favourite
– Manchester already boasts a huge student population
which speaks for itself when it comes to the popularity
of this bustling, cultured University City.
This picturesque market town may be small and unobtrusive
but has become a popular choice with many students.
Lampeter is just a couple of hours from Cardiff and
is surrounded by lush, rolling Welsh hills.
– Bristol is another popular choice with students
and, although rent prices can be very high, they do
tend to reflect the high quality of the accommodation
available. Bristol has plenty to offer from glorious
architecture, lovely scenery and an endless supply
of things for students to do in their spare time.
– The stunning architecture, rich academic history
and weekend punt rides down the calm, crystalline
river makes Cambridge a top choice for many students
however, the high cost of living often means it is
more suited to the privileged.
– A heady mix of old and new combine in this
beautiful Welsh seaside town where students can take
time out to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, plentiful
wildlife and the stunning countryside.
