Why is student housing a good investment?
There aren’t too many “products” on the market with such a well-built, already-there target market as student housing. Some of the advantages of student property investment include:
- Very little marketing. A college town is typically a vibrant community with chic galleries, dining establishments, shops, and eclectic nightlife. These towns tend to score high in walkability. Student housing in a college town practically sells itself, so you won’t need a huge marketing budget.
- Always potential tenants. New graduates head off to school each year and need a place to call home. In addition to students, new college faculty members also need housing. You’ll virtually never run out of applicants for your student housing properties.
- High cash flow potential. Student housing is always in high demand, so you can charge the going rate for rent in the area. Plus, properties you own that aren’t occupied won’t stay that way for long—student housing enjoys high occupancy rates, especially if it’s within a mile or two of campus.
- Low vacancies. Your student rental properties will get snapped up soon after you place them on the market and, once rented, tend to stay rented. Even over the summer, many students choose to stay, whether for summer sessions, work responsibilities, or other reasons.
