Located in Sheffield city centre in the heart of Sheffield Hallam University campus, Vista offers a purpose built investment opportunity in an unbeatable location.
Below are five reasons why you should consider investing in Vista:
Investors can secure an assured income of 7.5% net for 5 years, that means irrespective of maintenance costs or occupancy rates investors will receive £5,625 per annum at the £75,000 purchase price into their nominated bank account with no costs involved. After this point the property will work like a normal buy-to-let investment with the income taken from the tenant typically offering higher yields in comparison to traditional buy-to-let property.
Across Sheffield the number of international students which has grown 30% in just five years to 11,000 with the total number of students in the city now at 65,000.
These factors alone demonstrate how strong the proposition is for student property investment in Sheffield, especially when you consider that 45,000 students don’t have access to any purpose- built accommodation and there are no luxury options in the city at all.

What does Nick, our Founder and Director, think of Vista?
“Vista will be the new flagship premium student scheme in the Sheffield market, it’s a bold, stand out development that will attract plenty of student interest in comparison to the older, dated options currently available. Looking at the specific S1 location, it’s on top of Sheffield Hallam University and the train station, providing that ultra convenience that the modern student demands.
Considering the competition, the prices charged, the demand from students and the calibre of the educational institutions in Sheffield, the overall investment case for a luxury student scheme in the city is very appealing indeed”.
