A student accommodation provider has put a portfolio of 14 long-term leasehold properties in central Sydney on the market through Savills.

The Furnished Property business currently provide 326 beds in 203 bedrooms and offer student and short-stay accommodation.

The listing comes amid a trend of increasing student numbers in the Harbour City. 

Full time international student numbers in Sydney’s five largest central Sydney universities showed strong growth in the last two years of available data (2014/2015) with increases of 4,115 and 3,221 respectively, according to Savills. 

Anecdotally, it appears that this growth has continued in 2016/2017, it says even as supply struggles to keep up with demand.

Savills Research indicated that 2,022 beds are in the development pipeline with development approval, or under construction, with expected completions from 2018-2020. 

The marketing is being handled by Conal Newland of Savills Australia.

Newland had previously noted that there was a "critical undersupply" of appropriate Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) in Sydney.

The Furnished Property portfolio currently targets students, but is flexible enough to attract other occupiers.

“First established in 2001 by the current owners of the Furnished Property Business, the portfolio has steadily grown over the last 16 years. Its extensive track record of profitable performance demonstrates excellent margins and growth and includes a diversified range of accommodation offerings,” said Newland.

The portfolio comprises self-contained studios, one and two-bedroom apartments, together with twin and triple shared bedrooms. Most properties have communal facilities.

The majority of the properties are within 3.5 km of the Sydney CBD and all are close to amenities and public transport, according to Savills.

The expressions of interest campaign for Furnished Property closes July 19. 

“This portfolio presents an existing opportunity to acquire a well-established student housing business with significant opportunities to enhance returns and expand further into Sydney’s buoyant short-term accommodation market,” Newland said.
