All Saints was a university halls of residence and is undergoing an extensive refurbishment to bring it up to the luxury standard expected by today’s students.  Completion of the refurbishment is expected for May 2014. Prices start at £42,500 for a standard studio and investors have an assured 9% NET rental return for the first 2 years. Comprising of 90, self-contained, en-suite studios spread across three blocks, there will be three types of studio available – standard, deluxe and premium.  The units are within walking distance of the University of Sunderland campuses and have all local facilities and amenities to hand including shops, bars and restaurants. The students will benefit from an additional two floor extension that will hold a private gym and communal areas.  Transport links are close by and the development is within a 10 minute walk to the newly regenerated Sir Tom Cowie campus which has just been awarded £50 million of investment. Student numbers have continued to rise in the UK with UCAS reporting that applicants have risen by 19,000 for this academic year.  Private, boutique student residences continue to outperform all other forms of UK property investment.  The demand for high quality student accommodation is constant as UK university places are still heavily oversubscribed with only 10 places available for every 14 applicants. University owned accommodation is coming under increasing pressure with such high demand and student’s expectations of living standards have increased.  This trend for a higher standard of accommodation is fuelled by the globalisation of the Higher Education market brought on by the influx of non-UK students. Our focus in regional universities like Sunderland means we are able to offer investors higher than average yields in those areas that have a severe shortage of private, high quality accommodation. Average yields currently stand at 6-6.5% for regional cities but investors in All Saints can receive 9% assured NET yields for two years.  This is an armchair investment where an experienced management company will oversee the rental of the units.
