STOCKHOLM, Mar 09, 2017 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) — STOCKHOLM, Mar 09, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
The new Catella Market Tracker, Student Housing in Europe 2017, shows that almost no other market is currently attracting as much investor attention as student housing. However, the differences across Europe are still quite large, which creates exceptional opportunities in this relatively young asset class.
Student housing sector growth can be observed across Europe. An especially large percentage increase in students is found in Austria (+65%), Switzerland (+50%), the Netherlands (+33%) and Belgium (+31%). Germany has the highest number of students in Europe, numbering 2.7 million.
In contrast to conventional forms of accommodation, demand for this category is counter-cyclical to the economy. This means that demand tends to rise during recessions as university enrolment increases due to reduced employment opportunities. However, high demand is even assured during economic booms because of the structural shortage of accommodation for students, especially in big cities. In addition, the relatively short tenancy periods enable flexible adjustment of rents to market trends. “These structural characteristics enable a particularly low risk for investors,” concludes Beyerle.
