  1. Hello Manesh I used to live in Birmingham and also Nottingham. In Nottingham I benefited from investing where the tram routes went in about 15 years ago...suburbs along those routes saw increased rental yields and strong capital growth. Taking that strategy into Birmingham could work. The new Sprint transport upgrade ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games (and then being further developed afterwards ahead of HS2) could turn some areas into strong property hot spots. Here https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/50082/transport_improvement_schemes/1785/sprint_public_transport/2 is a link to the route and my estate agency have seen rapid sales on a new development in one of those locations (sold 60 of 126 apartments off-plan). Areas on this route that are also close to big local employers (ours is near Jaguar Land Rover's Advanced Manufacturing site), the airport, good fast links to the city centre have the potential to follow what happened in Nottingham and raise the profile of areas along the transport routes. 2-3 bed houses should do very well in these areas. If you want to chat more, feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house Many thanks and good luck Carl
  2. Hi Danny Firstly as someone who's attended several of the Nottingham meet-ups I can attest to Jonathan's (above) superb knowledge of Nottingham. In terms of Birmingham, where I lived for several years and my estate agency is now selling, a great simple tip building on my experience when I lived in Nottingham and benefited from the tram route going in is to look at the Sprint transport route. This is being created ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games and then developed further to link with HS2. Here https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/50082/transport_improvement_schemes/1785/sprint_public_transport/2 is a link and so take a look at the suburbs along the routes. We're selling in Sheldon - one of the locations directly on the route - and 60 apartments in a block of 126 new-builds have sold very quickly. It's also 1 mile from Jaguar Land Rover's Advanced Manufacturing site, 2.5 miles from Birmingham International Airport, The NEC and Solihull and 5 miles from Birmingham city centre. Sheldon hasn't historically been a hot spot so I do feel it's got great potential (this isn't a hard sell for our apartments - they're obviously already going well) so finding a sweet spot with the transport improvements, big industry (and one that pays well as JLR do) and things like the airport is my little tip. Several areas along the Sprint routes fit those criteria. If you want to talk more feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house Thank you Carl
  3. Hi Julie If you're looking solely in Birmingham, then I think there are several areas other than Smethwick that are ripe for becoming property hot spots. A good indicator will be the Sprint route - upgraded transport links through the city to coincide with the Commonwealth Games and ahead of HS2 coming in. Here https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/50082/transport_improvement_schemes/1785/sprint_public_transport/2 is a link to more details. From my experience in Nottingham when the tram route went in, key areas along that route benefited from capital growth and increased rental yields so it is a good strategy to consider. This next bit isn't a 'hard sell' because we've very quickly sold 60 of 126 apartments, but we're selling apartments in Sheldon on a Sprint route and I genuinely feel it's a great investment for the long-term. It's close to Jaguar Land Rover's Advanced Manufacturing Facility (1 mile), 2.5 miles from Birmingham International Airport and the NEC, 2.5 miles from Solihull and 5 miles from Birmingham city centre. If you'd like to chat more about any of this, feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house and I also used to live south of Birmingham, so we might share some local knowledge too! Thanks Carl
  4. Hi Adam Firstly, well done on getting yourself educated and into a well-paid job that you enjoy - that's a terrific advert for hard work, determination and ambition. I went to Birmingham Uni (in the 1990s...in fact before you were born if you're 23!) and still have great friends in the area...I was best man to one in Solihull in May. You should rightly take time to consider lots of options and get the right advice but I thought I'd alert you to a development that my estate agency are selling. In the first couple of weeks, 60 of 126 apartments have sold so this definitely isn't a 'hard sell' - they're selling very well anyway. But it's in Sheldon, just north of you, and I believe is a prime location for long-term capital growth because it's on the Sprint transport route being upgraded for the Commonwealth Games. Prices start at £121k and that includes a 5% discount from us...plus we also give a £1,000 cashback to all purchasers 2 months after making the reservation. If you're interested, feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house and if not, good luck with your investment strategy. Even if not here, I'm sure our paths will cross at some point. Best wishes Carl
  5. Hello Nathaniall I'd be very interested in speaking to you about this further. I own a property business which includes an estate agency (we're selling apartments in Sheldon, Birmingham which I believe have terrific capital growth potential and seem to fit your financial objectives). We also offer property sourcing and have a long-established apart-hotel business in Nottingham (and I used to live there) so I would be happy to talk about that too with you. If you'd like to discuss this further, feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house Best wishes and I hope to hear from you, Carl
  6. Hello Tiffany My company offer property sourcing (and coincidentally the estate agency within our group are selling apartments in Birmingham which may or may not be of interest). If you'd like to find out more, feel free to email me at carl@bricksandmortar.house and we can hopefully work together to find you what you require. Many thanks Carl
