Regional Property Market Update Autumn 2020: West Midlands and Wales

Market Reports GPEA 27th October 2020

It is estimated that nearly two million people own buy-to-let property across the UK (Resolution Foundation 2019), with property being regarded as a ‘safe-haven’ asset. At 5.4% and 5.7% respectively, the gross yield on residential property across the West Midlands and Wales is attractive.

Ceredigion is currently the strongest performer in the area, followed by Birmingham, Nuneaton and Bedworth, and Wolverhampton. In all four areas, gross yields are currently more than 6%.

Average gross yields on residential property are attractive, with positive rental and house price growth

Most active housing markets across the West Midlands and Wales region

Property prices across the West Midlands were 4.1% higher year-on-year and across Wales were 2.8% higher as the housing market reopened in June. Ceredigion, Wales is currently the strongest performer in the region. Activity across the market has been bri¬¬sk; nationally the average time taken to sell a property fell to 53 days in August, down from 62 days in August 2019. Sensible pricing remains crucial, as correctly priced properties are nearly twice as likely to be sold ‘subject to contract’ within four months of listing than those that have had their asking price reduced. Properties are currently selling, on average, in just 50 days across the West Midlands.

Philip Jackson, Director of Maguire Jackson, comments on the Birmingham City Centre region: 

“Birmingham City Centre has had a robust busy property market this autumn. Notwithstanding overall high stock levels there have been good levels of activity from price sensitive tenants and purchasers alike. The sales turnover has been, however, slowed by the post Grenfell fire regulations now sought by mortgage surveyors. Overall, lettings prices are down 5% on last year, with sales prices remaining stable.”
