European market remains attractive for all investment strategies

Student housing yields in major European cities generally are continuing to follow a regressing trend within this asset class, which has been developing in European countries over recent years. More detailed insight into the market has been achieved by analysing the annual yield development in the mapped countries.

Considerable differences in yield rates can be seen between the emerging CEE market and the traditional and more mature markets of Western Europe and the UK.

While in Western Europe quality PBSA products have become a safe investment with a stable operating income, yields in the CEE region are expected to remain of interest for opportunistic investment strategies.

Divergent European markets still offer a wide range of opportunities for all types of investment strategy within the student housing asset class.

The yield rates have seen stagnation rather than a sudden drop due to the impact of Covid-19. Comparison between the existing trend data and actual performance in 2021 will become clearer when updates of 2021 yield figures are available.
