As Seen on
Most people know that the upcoming HS2 train line will have an impact on the UK, but many don’t appreciate to what extent. The rail network will cut the travel time between Birmingham and London to 49 minutes, whilst also bringing an estimated £1.5bn economic boost and a further 22,000 jobs to the region. Alongside this, Birmingham International Airport sits just 5 miles south-east of the city centre with a choice of over 400 direct or one-stop flights across the world.
In addition to excellent transport links, the city boasts some major employers, including HSBC, PwC, BT, KPMG and HMRC. As such, there is a strong supply of young professionals looking for quality accommodation.
Read on for more reasons why we feel investing in JQ Rise and Birmingham represents a fantastic opportunity.
Attractive Pricing & Pay Monthly Option
With properties from £199,995, JQ Rise represents fantastic value. JLL recently stated one bedroom flats are achieving up to £250,000 and two bedroom flats around £380,000 in prime schemes. Price per square foot (PPSF) was also reported at £340 to £500 on average for new build schemes across the city, but JQ Rise is available from just £379 per square foot.
Furthermore, investors are able to spread their 30% deposit throughout the construction period, broken down into monthly payments. Upon completion investors can then utilise the developers in-house mortgage team to secure finance. This streamlines the process, with legal, lettings and management services also available, meaning investors can enter one of the most attractive residential investment markets in the UK with limited capital outlay and through a convenient and stress-free investment model.
Limited Capital Exposure & Exceptional Developer Experience
When purchasing off-plan investors need to conduct further due diligence into the security of the purchase. With JQ Rise, the developer offers an extremely unique payment method which is very rare in the UK. Investors are able to spread their deposit through the construction period by paying it monthly, this removes the risk of paying hefty deposits and ensures funds are aligned with construction progress.
In addition, the track record of this particular developer is exceptional. Established in 2007 this company has completed 38 substantial new-build and conversion residential projects with a Gross Development Value (GDV) of over £300m. With a team of 30 experienced staff, this developer aims to produce over £1bn worth of residential property over the next 5 years.
City Growth and Demand
As the UK’s second-biggest business hub outside of London, Birmingham has benefitted from a fast-growing local economy as well as large-scale city centre regeneration, both of which are helping fuel population growth.
Economic expansion is forecast to continue and the city is set to outperform the wider West Midlands area during the next decade, according to Oxford Economics. To this end, Birmingham’s gross value added (GVA), a measure of the value of goods and services produced in an area, is set to climb 16.4% by 2030, faster than the average for the region.
Plus, Birmingham’s population has risen by nearly 10% over the last decade, with an additional 100,000 people living in the city. Given the uplift in both job creation, amenities, transport and population, the demand for both city-centre and suburban living options in the city is expected to continue to grow.
Regeneration & HS2 Investment
The redevelopment of the former wholesale market at Birmingham Smithfield is one of UK’s largest city centre regeneration projects. The former Birmingham City University campus is also being developed to provide an Athletes’ Village for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
There is a wealth of opportunities for companies seeking to expand or invest in Birmingham. The city has exceptional connections to local, national and international destinations. It lies at the heart of the UK’s road network and boasts an international airport serving 9 million passengers per year to 140 direct and scheduled charter routes. And, as we mentioned earlier, the proposed HS2 rail link will potentially cut travel time between Birmingham and London to under 50 minutes.
