Market trends:

Birmingham propertyThe size of the property market in B69 is 10460 homes.

Birmingham propertyWhen compared against a national average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the last 5 years of 12.5%, the growth in this postcode district has been 12.4%. This could well be because this is a dynamic local economy and housing market. Property price growth in this area has significantly exceeded growth in earnings and the national average house price growth, and so the likelihood of it continuing will be dependent upon price earnings ratio, as well as investment by developers and local authorities in continually upgrading local infrastructure, schools, in addition to the continued strength of the local and national economies and any other economies upon which the area depends.

Birmingham propertyThe average property in this postcode district was valued at £119455 over the last 3 months.

Birmingham propertyWhen examining the ability of consumers to further extend themselves in the face of increasing property prices, many commentators pay close attention to the price earnings ratio. Price Earnings Ratio in this postcode district is 8.4. Given the low level of earnings in areas such as this, property prices face a ceiling unless outside impetus can be found for increases. Areas which typically have low earnings and low prices tend to be geographically isolated or suffer from outmoded transport infrastructure. They may also be situated in areas of economic difficulty which have not yet been the recipients of redevelopment or regeneration funding. For those moving into an area like this, they may find that they are able to afford to buy a substantially bigger property than their previous home if they are able to secure employment outside the area. Moving out of areas like this can be difficult without an offer of employment in a new location. This is because price growth lags in areas of economic deprivation, so owners there are not able to use their existing property as leverage to match their standard of living elsewhere.
