Local Property Market

Birmingham is often under the shadow of London and Manchester but it remains the UK’s second city. It is the home of Cadbury’s, Jaguar Landrover and a clutch of blue chip accountancy firms including Grant Thornton and pwc.

The residential property market in Birmingham remained static for a while following the slowdown in 2008, but in 2013 things changed and demand outstripped supply for investment property.

The city has much to be proud of and is one of the most thriving cities in the UK. It attracts millions of people each year as a place to study, work, live or visit.

Kent Street is minutes away from Birmingham New Street, the busiest rail interchange outside of London and now connected to the broader city area via the tram. The international airport, served by major airlines, provides direct flights to New York, Amsterdam, Paris among other popular destinations.

Birmingham has three universities and is considered a prime location to study with the UK’s second largest student population outside of London. More and more overseas students and young working professional are choosing to settle here attracted by a vibrant lifestyle, affordability and exceptional transport links.

Capital Returns

We include a CrowdLords Risk Rating to illustrate where the investment lies on our Risk Return Profile.  Where risks are higher it is usual to expect a higher return and this is designed to aid quick comparisons only. It is our opinion only and should not be taken as a recommendation. You should judge the Risk for yourself using the information provided and your own investigations to form your own opinion.
We rate Risk across 5 parameters and grade them as being A, B, C, D or E. A being lower Risk. The five areas we grade are:

The Investment Period – the longer the period, the less the risk
Macro location and market – has the area performed well historically
Micro location – is the property in a good location for rental / sale
Level of Development – the degree of development and the cost / time risks
Track Record – the track record of the LandLord / Developer

We combine these into a weighted rating between A and E and show how the Risk / Return compares with what we would expect.
