Is Jewellery Quarter a good place to invest?

Living in a city centre has never been so appealing with tenants increasingly wanting amenities on their doorstep. As part of the second city, the Jewellery Quarter has all this to offer and more. The JQ has undergone significant improvement over the past decade with historic buildings being transferred into modern flats and commercial spaces. With a short walk to the commercial and business district, the Jewellery Quarter is one of the most popular areas in Birmingham for young professionals working in the city.

This has lead to an increase in inward investment from savvy landlords looking to capitalise on ‘generation rent‘ pushing up rental and asking prices in the residential market.
