Is now the right time to sell house fast in Birmingham?
Birmingham is the UK’s second city and is situated 100 miles (160 km) north of the capital and is still very affordable compared to London. According to Zoopla, the average house costs £204.929 in Birmingham and would cost three times as much In London. Birmingham is the commercial, financial, social and cultural hub of the Midlands and has the country's second largest metropolitan economy after London.
Birmingham is certainly buoyant on the business front, with many companies opening large regional offices in the city. In recent years, these have included HSBC, Deutsche Bank and Pricewaterhousecooper. The city’s economy is dominated by the service sector and it has established itself as an excellent international commercial centre for conferences and events.
There are also a number of exciting redevelopment projects including Paradise Birmingham and Digbeth and HS2 will certainly prompt further development as it will enhance its already excellent transport network transport links. Birmingham is also popular as it has plenty of culture and entertainment for everybody; including its own symphony orchestra and Birmingham Royal Ballet. The Grand Central and Bullring offer the ultimate in shopping and dining experiences in the city. Many residents believe that the quality of life is very good in the city as it has good schools and five universities. The city has excellent healthcare facilities as well as diverse sport and leisure amenities.

The best areas to live in Birmingham
Birmingham has a wide variety of housing options to suit all budgets and tastes, ranging from attractive detached houses in lush leafy suburbs to modern apartments in trendy areas that buzz with energy and fun.
A popular part of the city, situated right at its heart is Holloway Head which has recently been rejuvenated with the creation of 500 stylish new apartments plus commercial spaces that are proving popular with young professionals as they are just a ten-minute walk from New Street Station. The Jewellery Quarter is the historic part of the old city and has been important for the jewellery trade for several hundred years and still produces 45% of all the UK’s jewellery. It is becoming the trendy part of the city to live as it is rich in coffee shops, restaurants and museums.
The area between Smithfield between Digbeth high street and the Bullring is currently seeing an exciting new makeover with new retail spaces, hotels, cultural buildings and housing that will be constructed from sustainable materials with zero carbon emissions.
Nestling close to Harwood is Bearwood which is enjoying a real renaissance with many new businesses opening in this part of the city. For golfers there is the nine-hole and another popular attraction is the popular monthly vegan market.
This attractive garden suburb was created in 1900 by the chocolate maker and philanthropist John Cadbury who wanted Bournville to have a warm community spirit and it certainly does along with some old world charm and numerous small, quaint independent shops.
Situated close to Digbeth and the canal lies Brindleyplace which is proving a dynamic part of the city for young professionals to live and work as it is here that several large international companies have established sizeable regional offices.
Digbeth is an up and coming area, ideal for first time buyers. There has been a huge renovation project taking part in this part of the city which was once an industrial hub as it lies close to the Grand Union and Digbeth branch canal. Today, many new apartment blocks have been created in the old warehouse buildings - offering both sale and rental properties. The area has become a focus for creative and digital companies.
Erdington is a popular place to live as it lies five miles north-east of the city centre with excellent road, rail and bus links to the centre. This part of the city has been inhabited since the 9th century, but it is not its rich history that it is well known for, but its huge motorway intersection known as ‘Spaghetti Junction’. It is a vibrant part of the city with 280 local businesses and plenty of retail and office space at Fort Dunlop.
This popular part of the city, is also one of the most affluent with plenty of large open spaces and its famous Botanical Gardens. It is home to one of the oldest lawn tennis clubs in the world and is also has a prestigious cricket ground and 18-hole golf course.

What can stop you from selling your Birmingham house fast?
We often get asked why is it taking longer to sell my house?
One of the reasons could be your choice of estate agents. You'd be wise to pick an agency who are dynamic with good organisation and presentation skills.
With so many potential house buyers making their initial searches online, your chosen agent must have a really good online presence with a regularly updated, easy-to-navigate website and appeal to the type of customers who will be interested in your Birmingham house.
You also need to take time to check what commission your estate agent will charge and if there are any hidden fees. Speak with your chosen estate agent and test them to ensure that they know the local property market thoroughly. If they do, they will know which of their clients will be interested in your property - which will help sell your house quickly.
It is important that your house is accurately priced because an over-priced house will simply not sell. Property prices in Birmingham are currently very fair, so if you want to sell your house quickly your asking price must be reasonable.
You will need to prepare your house to go on the property market. Ask yourself, does it look attractive inside with good paintwork? Are all minor repairs sorted and is all clutter packed away? Does your house have 'kerb appeal?' Are the gardens tidy, with mown lawns, weeded flowerbeds and well trimmed bushes? All of these points can make your property more desirable.
It is important to bear in mind that the if you sell your Birmingham house through a traditional estate agent it can take additional time – especially if there is 'a chain' involved as this leaves it open to potentially falling through. A house sale isn't certain until the exchange contracts. In 2021 the average time for the purchase of a property from making an offer to holding the house keys in your hand was 18 weeks.
Another hold up that frequently occurs is that potential buyers have not secured a mortgage before they make an offer on a property. Additionally, there can be minor delays caused by conveyancing and mortgage brokers.
Why you may need to sell house fast in Birmingham
There are many reasons that can prompt the decision to move. Personal reasons can include divorce, the need for a sizeable amount of money quickly or because you need to move closer to an elderly relative.
Good schools and local amenities can also trigger the decision to move. Often changing job or being moved to a new location by employers makes a house move inevitable.
Getting a firm good cash offer based on the current market value of your property fast in these situations can be essential.
An increasing number of sellers want to move with a fast and hassle free sale of their property.
