Impact on Salford Property Market with 20,000 Students Attending Salford University in 2015

The rising popularity of Salford University is having a significant impact upon the local area. As an increasing number of students choose to attend the university, there has been an understandable increase in demand for accommodation, particularly in those areas that are closest to the main campus.  The construction of the new building at MediaCityUK, which forms part of the College of Arts and Social Sciences, has also had an impact, with many students competing with media professionals for sought after accommodation in close proximity to the media complex.

High demand for accommodation

The level of demand for flats, apartments and houses is such that student accommodation doesn’t tend to stay on the market for long. Those who are seeking accommodation in the perfect location need to keep checking the Mistoria Estate Agents website. It should also be a priority to ensure that you are readily available, as viewing property quickly will enhance your chances of securing the ideal place. Finding properties is made easier by the Google-driven maps application on the Mistoria Estate Agents website, which allows you to search in specific areas of Salford. You can identify locations of interest and then browse relevant properties.

Searching for properties close to Castle Irwell

The self-catered halls of residence at the university have limited rooms available, which explains why so many students are competing for places within private accommodation. Many students do, however, like to be located close to the halls and those who opt to live close to the Castle Irwell Student Village are able to take advantage of the free bus service, with buses being provided every 30 minutes. There is also the opportunity to make use of the extensive sports facilities, while the concentration of students in this area has led to a proliferation of local shops and takeaways.

Key factors when making a decision

Location is clearly going to be central to your requirements. Most students tend to look for houses or flats that allow easy access to the campus, shops and entertainment. This means, however, that accommodation in prime locations is always in demand. But location isn’t the only factor when it comes to making a decision: the size and state of the property will also be important and your specific requirements may well be influenced by how many of you are planning on sharing. Agreeing to share with a larger group can result in lower rental costs for all of you, while also allowing you to obtain student accommodation that really stands out from the crowd.

When viewing property, think about the practicalities associated with your requirements. How well will the property meet your needs? The Mistoria Estate Agents website enables you to examine property details in advance, allowing you to narrow down possible options. It’s always advisable to view a property in person, in order to ensure that it meets the standards that you would expect.
