England’s West Midland area has got a lot on offer for a wide range of investors: from luxurious apartments in Birmingham’s city centre to little cottage in the region’s more rural parts.
The West Midlands consist of Shropshire. Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and West Midlands (county). The area is usually slightly more expensive than its Eastern counterpart as it is more popular with buyers.
Regardless of budget, the perfect fit should be available for everyone in the region.
When looking to invest in one of the country’s bigger cities, make sure you have a good look at Birmingham. Over the last couple of year, the city has almost experienced a complete transformation. With more and more investment and business moving away from London and further up north to benefit from the cheaper prices, for many Birmingham is the first stop.
With its central location within the country, the West Midlands really do offer a lot. Transport links to and from Birmingham to the country’s major cities are plenty regardless of your chosen form of transport.
Trains from London to Birmingham, Coventry, Worcester and Wolverhampton are already departing twice an hour. And chances are, this will only increase – whilst the actual travel time will decrease – once the new High Speed Rail is actually built.
So if the West Midlands have caught your eye as an investment hotspot, make sure you check out Birmingham’s amazing, brand new developments. Or if a quieter retreat is what you’re looking for, make sure to hunt around the region’s pretty villages, hamlets and tiny towns.
