Student Housing Marketview H1 2015

Portfolio opportunities attract major investors

In this edition we take a look at the 'Portfolio story so far'; it's been a busy period with transaction volumes for this year having already eclipsed the total figure for 2014, and we focus in on the rapid change in yields, especially in London. We also address whether student housing could now be a cost effective way to access the PRS. Plus our usual analysis of trends, key transactions, market movements, and commentary on the latest  issues affecting the sector.
