Now is the perfect time for you to invest in Cardiff. It’s classed as an “emerging market” by Knight Frank – a city “characterised by good universities but low PBSA stock availability”.
Watch your returns grow. Invest now at the start of this exciting period of growth for Cardiff’s student property sector.
Soon there will be another significant factor to draw you towards student property investment Cardiff.
Just 2,041 students currently live in the CF10 postcode, the area that covers Cardiff city centre and Cardiff University. Low supply is preventing many students from living here.
At present, students are predominantly living in residential areas of the city such as Cathays and Roath. Up to 30 minutes’ walk from university. Homes here are often traditional Cardiff buy to let; older and of poorer quality.
What’s more, Cardiff Council is actively taking steps to reduce the number of homes used by students in these suburbs. This means living in these neighbourhoods will soon no longer be an option.
This will place even greater focus on PBSA in the city centre – and you can take advantage of this unmissable Cardiff investment opportunity
