The outlook for Birmingham is extremely positive. Development activity has remained below demand levels for some time, which has created fierce competition for new homes. The city needs 4,000 homes per year for the next decade but has only been building at an average rate of 900 homes per annum for the past ten years. This will underpin rental value growth in the city centre.
