  1. Hello all, It has been a long time since I’ve posted on here but at last I am in a position to buy a rental property, Birmingham and surrounding areas being my location target as this fits a bit better with my budget of £25,000 as I live down in the southwest housing pricing being too high for me I think Birmingham is a good place to start my research as it has good transport links and plenty of university and hospitals I can look into. When it comes to research I generally want to know everything before I buying a certain product, in this case, a house, so I am hoping this will be a good "topic" for information on Birmingham as I will be posting everything on here. The reason behind the in-depth research is that as explained be for I live in the southwest and have not been to Birmingham other than a gig at the NEC so my knowledge on the property market there is pretty much zero. If anyone has any information on where to start looking would be a great help. What and how am I going to research? To kick off my onslaught of research I will be pulling everything I can off the web and extracting data to get an idea which areas to avoid and what housing is going up in value. Such things like crime statistics and Rightmove brought and sold should help me out with this. Would like to find out what funding is being used in different areas as well. Next up will talking with estate agents, if anyone has done this before and know if they are respective to talking about the market then please let me know. I will be asking on what they look for in a rental, what areas do well plus everything in between. Closer to the time will be house viewing and such like, to get the feel of the general areas I want to invest in. this will be very specific research but will still be posting my findings. I think if I complete all this research it will give me the confidence to invest. If you think I’m missing anything important then let me know. Thanks for reading, will
  2. Hi everyone, I am doing some general research on property prices in a particular street. On Zoopla I can find the previous sold prices of all properties. But is there a way to check the property details on Rightmove for properties that have been taken off the market? I know it is possible to view sold properties on Rightmove, but only if you already have the link before the sale has gone through. Is it possible to search "closed listings"? This would be helpful as I can then cross reference the price sold from Zoopla with the property details on Rightmove, Thanks all - If anyone can help, property hub can help!
  3. Hi all, I just wanted to share this interesting report and affordability map/tool from the Yorkshire Building Society: http://www.ybs.co.uk/media-centre/housing-availability.html http://www.ybs.co.uk/guides/homebuyers/uk-home-affordability/index.html Enjoy!
  4. For property data geeks and those researching new areas or undertaking portfolio reviews. In addition to the monthly rental indexes you may find this annual report useful - hot off the government presses: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/private-rental-market-summary-statistics-april-2016-to-march-2017
  5. I've just come across a website called https://www.walkscore.com/ that shows you all the things within walking distance and gives the location a score, basically as the name suggests! There's also nice little travel time feature with various transport options: Good for assessing an area and also for marketing the property to tenants or buyers.
