Why invest in Sheffield?

Sheffield has significant investment potential, particularly when it comes to the Purpose-Built Student Accommodation market. Home to two prestigious universities which are growing fast and around 65,000 students, the city offers the perfect opportunity for those looking to invest in one of the UK’s leading markets.

The population in Sheffield has flourished in recent years, as has the number of international students which has grown by 30% in just five years to 11,000. These factors alone demonstrate how strong the proposition is for student property investment in Sheffield, especially when you consider that there is a shortfall of purpose-built accommodation. This has opened up an extremely prosperous gap in the market in which developments such as VISTA are perfect to fill. View all of our available Sheffield properties here.
