The Local market

The housing market has been buoyant in recent times with demand across most price ranges and sectors holding up well. First time buyer activity is relatively high which allows chains to build and home owners to sell and move on.

Prices start around £70,000 for a two bedroom terraced house and rise to £400,000/£500,000 for the larger detached houses within the town. Surrounding villages fair even better and enjoy excellent demand.

The area has been a draw for residents moving in to the area from the higher priced towns in the West Midlands as it is still commutable to Birmingham.

Rental demand is strong around the town centre and within the leafy suburbs where young professional look for a home of their own to live in. Families seeking a home to let opt for the modern estates or in nearby villages.
