With the new academic year under way buy to let investors mortgage are looking at student accommodation for a sound return.
Knight Frank head of residential research Liam Bailey said this real estate "has been classed as being quite an attractive option for a lot of investors".
If you are looking to invest in the student buy to let market then look to cities which are home to "bigger, higher profile universities". Look to cities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, London and Cardiff.
He explained this is because of an undersupply of properties and a "huge demand" caused by people from overseas trying to find a place to stay.
The educational institutions seeing the highest rises in student numbers should be sought after, Mr Bailey declared.
His comments echo a report from Savills, which asserted the asset class of student housing is becoming increasingly polarised.
Developers and investors were advised by director of research at the firm Yolande Barnes to look at the market and academic prospects at "a highly localised level" to determine a site's long-term viability.
