First student property investment comparison portal launches

The world’s first ever student property investment comparison portal has launched.

Dedicated to the booming student housing sector, www.StudentProperty.Investments allows investors to search and compare dozens of student accommodation investment opportunities.

The site, created by leading real estate marketing firm Lead Galaxy, arrives just as the student housing sector breaks new records.

In the first half of 2015, investment in the student housing market hit £3.98 bllion, according to CBRE, well ahead of the £2.35 billion recorded in the whole of 2014.

StudentProperty.Investments is designed to make it easy to locate the newest and best opportunities in the thriving sector. An innovative smart table allows investors to find and compare properties by yield, terms, buyback or starting price, while results can be quickly filtered before making an enquiry about multiple listings with a single click.

The stripped-down and responsive layout means that the site is available on the go on any mobile device, offering the most specialised information to the widest possible audience of international investors.

It’s a useful tool for investors looking to compare the key metrics of deals currently available on the market, but also makes it possible for developers to benchmark their product against the competition, explains Lead Galaxy CEO Dan Johnson.

Going forward, the site will be a focal point for the company’s marketing activity in this category of investment.

“With investment in UK university accommodation reaching a record $6.5 billion in the first three quarters of 2015 (Savills), the site contains everything investors need to capitalise on interest in [student housing],” adds the company.

For novices, an exclusive mini guide is also available to download for free from the site, offering comprehensive information about investing in student accommodation.
