£45,000 individually or £42,500 each if bought as a pair.

Built by an experienced and award-winning developer X1, this double bedroom studio apartment with en suite at X1 The Edge in Liverpool is a great investment opportunity for both experienced investors or 1st time buyers!

Close to all the shops, bars, restaurants and cultural amenities synonymous with Liverpool, residents of X1 The Edge are just a short journey away from everything this dynamic city has to offer, as well as its ample transport links.

Unsurprisingly, X1 The Edge is a highly popular student development with its target demographic, boasting a 100% tenant retention rate year-on-year. This is thanks to the site's stunning private residences, as well as the addition of ample communal areas for its tenants to enjoy, relax and socialise, including common rooms and even a private onsite gym.

Furthermore, tenants of X1 The Edge are enamoured with the development's proximity to the city's major universities, including Liverpool John Moore's, The University of Liverpool, and Liverpool Hope, meaning that X1 The Edge ticks every box.

Demand for shared student accommodation is growing due to rising numbers of students attending the three universities in Liverpool. Last year, there were 60,000 students studying in Liverpool, up 20% on the previous year and it is expected the numbers will rise again this year. It is estimated that 60% of these students require accommodation. This makes for a lucrative investment opportunity with longevity for many years to come.
