Living in Birmingham

the UK’s second – biggest city

Best Areas To Live in Birmingham

The city’s central business district, this area, is defined by the Middle Ring Road and, under the Big City Plan, is five times as large as it once was. The city centre is a collage of beautifully old Victorian-era buildings like the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and more modern structures like the Matthew Boulton College. 


The City Centre is a beautiful location for specifically young professionals and students looking to live in like-minded and colourful neighbourhoods. Aston University is located in the heart of Birmingham, so student accommodation in high-rise flats is quite common. 


Over the last year, according to Zoopla, the average sold house price was £209,913, which is just under £90,000 cheaper than the UK’s average. Detached houses sold for the most at £463,333, and flats sold for the least at £190,662—semi-detached housing sold on average for £246,500, and terraced houses sold for £224,850.


We will help you sell your property in Birmingham City Centre in as little as 28 days.

Digbeth is an area within Birmingham City Centre undergoing an extensive redevelopment scheme reshaping most of Birmingham. Digbeth is known as the Creative Quarter and was once one of the most industrialised parts of the city. 


As with all great regeneration projects in the UK, Digbeth is home to many old factories and mills, which have become beautiful places for commercial and residential developments. 


According to Rightmove, the average house price in Digbeth had an overall average cost of £197,027, which is over £90,000 less than the UK average. The sold house prices were down from the year before by 5%.
