WASHINGTON, D.C.-The National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) released a white paper today that provides new data and analysis on financial metrics for the student housing market. Developed by NMHC’s Student Housing Council, the analysis follows up the NSHC 2011 Student Housing Income and Expense Benchmarking Survey with new data on gross potential rent, gain/loss from lease, concessions and vacancy loss for 327 student housing properties, comprising 179,279 beds nationwide.
Highlights from the white paper include:
- On average, student housing properties netted 88.9 percent of their gross potential rents on a per-bed basis after concessions and vacancy loss.
- Although newly constructed student housing properties typically spent more on concessions and had higher levels of vacancy losses, they netted 10 percent to 14 percent more dollars per bed than their older vintage counterparts.
- Roughly 84.4 percent of survey respondents indicated that they leased by the bed, which corresponded to lower levels of concessions and vacancy losses.
The report is available online, free for NMHC members or $400 for nonmembers.
