      Property investment in Birmingham - why?

      Birmingham buy to let property is seen as a top choice due to a huge, growing rental demand. The demand is driven by a thriving business scene, with world renowned companies such as HSBC and Deutsche Bank headquartered in the city.

      The great thing about property investment in Birmingham is that prices are still at an attractive level with room to grow, plus yields are strong. In short, there is lots of potential for buyers to make serious profits from capital growth over the coming years, whilst enjoying great rental incomes in the meantime.

      Finally, regeneration is ripe and there is a 20-year plan to transform the city centre. Birmingham’s ‘Big City Plan’ is dubbed by the city’s council as the ‘most ambitious, far-reaching development project ever undertaken in the UK’. This will provide 50,000 new jobs, 5,000 new homes and improved infrastructure to meet the needs of new residents.
