Posted by Richard Ward

- 2019 will be a record year for new PBSA, with more than 34,000 beds added, representing year-on-year growth of 5.3%;

- The supply pipeline remains skewed towards private PBSA, with more than 120k beds approved or awaiting a decision;

- In 2019 the average HMO outside of London increased its advertised rent by 6.0% year-on-year, whilst PBSA recorded growth of 1.9%;

- Outside of London, the average budget when house hunting for 2019-20 was £126pppw, up 3.8% year-on-year;
