Spain is facing a continuous housing shortage compounded by a yearly surge in student numbers. As the 5th largest global market catering to 1.7 million students, with 11% international, a concerning trend emerges- more Spanish students opt to stay in family homes due to financial constraints and challenges securing student accommodation.
In response, the sector delivered 30,000 units in the last 5 years. However, the current pipeline of 20,000 units signifies only a 7% increase in required supply, exposing a substantial gap.
Spain strategically blends underserved markets with a deep understanding of capital markets in Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA). Cities like Valencia, drawing substantial student interest and boasting cultural appeal, offer enticing investment prospects. Additionally, within secondary cities, identifying precise micro-locations becomes pivotal for successful PBSA ventures, demanding astute market comprehension in strategic planning.
