Property Investment in Birmingham
Birmingham is an extremely desirable area for all types of property investor. Birmingham, the hub of the UK Midlands, was 2015’s surprise package in terms of popularity. With very little property available on the market and prices increasing dramatically throughout the year, Birmingham is now seen as a primary target for investors from the north and south of the UK.
Upon reflection, it is hardly surprising considering that it is now Europe’s youngest city with 40% of its population made up on the under 25’s, it has seen a population increase of 300,000 over the last decade and it now has the largest concentration of businesses outside London with 33,000.
Other smaller cities close to Birmingham, such as Newcastle-under-Lyme, have attracted student accommodation investors looking for those low entry level prices and high net rental yields.
