The midlands is pleased to see some welcomed investment into the area, once again, as we are seeing new build home sites starting to appear again which have been sorely missed over the last few years. Here at Concentric & Lawson’s, we have recently been offered a development of 141 new build studios to let, as well as many more across the region of smaller size, throughout our network of branches in Coventry, Birmingham, Leicester and Wolverhampton
There are some large commercial investments going on, including the Jaguar site being constructed on the I54 development north of Wolverhampton, bringing 600 new jobs to the area and with that new tenant potential.
Good properties are having 2-3 applications on them within days, but generally rents are stable throughout. Landlord instructions over the last month has been harder, due to half term and a slight lull in the calls during that period, and the clients looking for keen fees, as they try to save costs on their lettings and management.
