Top tips for landlords to consider when investing in the student market
Posted by Ed on 9 January 2018
Are you a new landlord looking to invest in the student market? Or are you a professional landlord looking to expand your portfolio? Look no further for your top tips on the best way to get started.

Tip 1 – Are you looking in the correct areas? You have to consider the distance your potential tenants will be traveling to and from the university, are there many amenities close by? we know students love to shop!

Tip 2 – would you live in the property you are potentially renting out? If the answer is no, then the chances are not many will, so let’s try and change it by ensuring the property is done up to a good standard – you can’t go wrong by producing that homely feel to your property, you have to remember a lot of students are a long way from home and will find comfort in a property with more of a homely feel.

Tip 3 – when are you looking to market the property? – It is curtail that you market the property at the correct time to increase your chances of renting out the property. We Liverpool student let’s start to advertise are rental stock from the start of November – this is a great time as a lot of students want to find there accommodation before Christmas (one less thing to worry about) so come January the best of the bunch are usually Let.

Tip 4 – what are the best areas to invest in the student market? – As you will begin to notice, a lot students don’t want to be too far away from there university campus. Your best areas for investment will be – Liverpool City Centre (L1 L2, L3) Kensington Fields (L7) Wavertree/Smithtown Road (L15/L8) from a studio to a 10 bed, these are the best areas for an increased chance in rental for the academic year.

Tip 5 – do I as a landlord include bills within rental price? – including bills for students always catches the eye that little bit more, in fact some students decide not to take the property regardless of how nice they believe it to be if it doesn’t include bills. Including utilities are near enough a must if you want to give your property the best chance in letting out fast to save you worrying, especially if you’re new to the student market. Including WI-FI can be missed, but again you’re only increasing your chances of a quicker rental but including it all.
