Why Invest in Birmingham?
Within the varied UK property investment landscape, Birmingham has been among the regions drawing the most attention in recent years. Rental returns and potential capital gains upside have been squeezed by high prices in London and the South-East and the UK’s second most populous city has taken up some of the slack.
A combination of strong rental returns (up there with the UK’s best), comfortable margins for continuing short and medium-term price growth, positive demographics and a burgeoning local economy all support Birmingham’s property investment business case. In this report, we’ll present the key data on Birmingham as an economy, the city’s demographics and the residential property market. We hope to provide a great hard data starting point for those researching investing in property in the UK, or Birmingham more specifically.
