What does our Founder, Nick, think of The Villas?
“With so much on offer to recommend it, from the exceptional quality of build to the long-term income these stunning studios yield, The Villas in Stoke-on-Trent will capture the hearts and minds of everyone, from investors to students.
Whilst it’s clear that the investment case of the scheme itself is exceptionally strong, it’s nice to see the asset class as a whole performing remarkably well, throughout the pandemic Savills stated that “PBSA investment yields have remained remarkably resilient against a background of political and economic uncertainty” which really goes to show the solid fundamentals unpinning the purpose-built student accommodation sector.
Given the developers track record of building, letting and paying rental assurances in the local area, the substantial demand from investors to date and the continued appeal of self-contained student accommodation post-pandemic, we see this as a remarkable long term investment which is forecast to produce +8% net income even after the assurance period”.
