Purchase a property in Edinburgh

A small minority of students choose to purchase a flat or house in Edinburgh as accommodation during their studies.

The housing market in Edinburgh is relatively stable, and buying a property for a few years can make for a worthwhile investment. In 2015 and 2018 the property comparison website Zoopla named Edinburgh as the best investment in the UK for buy-to-let property.
