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.
Severn 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.
