Trends in the property market: students in Glasgow

Increase in the supply of student accommodation in Glasgow.

infozone's curator insight, July 15, 2013 9:22 PM

Home to the UK’s second largest student population and no less than four universities, Glasgow is home also to a high proportion of tenants demanding excellent value and unique terms based around student living from their landlords, be they buy to let investors or Glasgow property agents.


While demand for university places remains relatively buoyant, especially for undergraduate courses, and supply in the housing market is not yet plentiful in Glasgow, commitment from property developers and newfound will on the part of banks, incentivised in part by pledges of public finance by the government, are slowly but surely increasing the supply of flats and houses available to the city’s student population.


http://www.totalstudents.com/student-guide/glasgow/


As young families and recent entrants to the jobs market begin to take up places on help to buy schemes and banks find themselves compelled by the governments who bailed them out at the height of the global financial crisis to raise capital and provide safe credit to the taxpayers who require mortgages and have been unable to find them, moves out of city apartments and house shares to new builds, particularly in the East End, are leaving increasing numbers of city properties available to let.


Given the likelihood of demand in the rentals market remaining comparatively stable, despite hard times for students and the decision of a percentage to decline university offers and student loans in favour of school leaving employment, this leaves everything to play for when it comes to the student tenant and landlord relationship.  Competitive landlords will want to ensure they are providing the best value Glasgow property and service to their tenants.  This means being up to speed with the new student lifestyles, finances and budgets facing both undergraduates and postgraduates.


http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/news/tuition-fees/


For postgraduates, cuts to research grants across arts, sciences and humanities means that there are fewer funded degrees available.  Those who are fortunate enough to secure funding will be more likely to work part time, if not full time while pursuing part time research.  The same goes for undergraduates, who are facing a number of socioeconomic and financial factors that have dramatically altered the landscape of undergraduate life.

 

The importance of these changes for landlords letting student tenants is to appreciate the opportunities associated with the student population.  For instance, with students forced to enter employment much earlier than on graduating and to go the extra mile to maintain job security with demand for employment being so unmet in the current economy, 12 month leases, as opposed to leases excluding the long academic summer vacation, are the norm. 


Home, EU and international students are all less likely to travel home during their vacations and reading weeks, not only in light of the increased pressure to keep their jobs and to take on hours in order to cover the cost of student living, but also in light of the fact that travel fares are increasingly seen as an expensive luxury, rather than a necessity.

Texas tourism may go suborbital thanks to new legislation | San Antonio Business Journal

Texas tourism may go suborbital thanks to new legislation | San Antonio Business Journal | CarolineColo | Scoop.it

Only about 500 people have traveled to space, and few have traveled to space commercially. You can expect that to change — and Texas could be involved in a big way.

 

The last decade has seen the first leisure travelers go to space. Since 2001, seven individuals have purchased eight orbital flights — one passenger flew twice — for up to $35 million per flight.

 

The development of suborbital reusable vehicles — commercially developed reusable space vehicles that can carry humans or cargo — offer a slew of space experiences (weightlessness, view from space and of the curvature of the Earth) combined with the rare opportunity to cross the threshold of space at a price point significantly lower than commercially purchased orbital flights.

Luke Hancock - H&H Social Design's curator insight, March 22, 2013 3:10 PM

Because nonprofits have the ability to tell such moving and compelling stories and share insightful data into the problems their organizations are trying to solve, I think these organizations should be at the forefront of embracing content marketing, providing their constituents blogs, video and infographics.

What we have been waiting for.

Matt Aslett's re-interpretation of the evolving database market.

New additions, a few changed positions..not seen any deletions yet, the cycle will have to move forward before that starts happening.

Gartner are expected to issue a Magic Quadrant for databases later this year and that will be another interesting status check although more focused on capaibilty rather than marketing positioning.

Nice work Matt.
