Harbourside Provides Parents Ideal Student Investment
With the cost of student living rising every year, many parents are opting to buy properties for their children, reducing the amount of debt they will be left with at the end of their studies.
Named as the best place to live in the UK* and home to two popular and thriving universities and a student population of 47,000, Bristol is fast becoming a property hotspot for parents in this situation.
In buying their own property, parents are able to secure higher quality accommodation for their offspring and maintain some control over living arrangements. Buying property is also an investment especially within an up-and-coming city like Bristol.
As Bristol’s city centre continues to be transformed, a number of developments have become attractive propositions for parents looking to buy.
This includes Crest Nicholson’s Harbourside development which is ideally located and in close proximity to both university campuses. In the heart of Bristol’s cosmopolitan waterfront there are numerous bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Susan Young, sales and marketing director for Crest Nicholson Regeneration said: “More and more people are realising that pouring rent into student accommodation isn’t always the best option. By purchasing a property of their own, people can ensure safe and secure living quarters for their children and perhaps even make some money.
“If the property has more than one bedroom, friends can be brought in to help with the repayments and the value of the property could rise by the time studying ends.
“One of the most sought after locations in the city, Harbourside is ideal for parents and their children; the apartments are stylish and modern but very reasonably priced.”
The latest phase is called Beacon House and comprises 47, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Spread over seven floors, the variety of different styles and property sizes has already attracted a lot of interest from property hunters looking to live next to the city’s historic floating harbour.
And anyone thinking of looking at Harbourside will be interested to know that the development achieved a Building for Life gold standard from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), the Government’s advisor on architecture, urban space and public space and the Home Builders Federation (HBF).
Prices currently start from £205,000.
