Five reasons why Birmingham is the best city to live in

Otherwise known as the second city, Birmingham is a place rich with culture and the perfect place to call home for families, students and couples with something to offer for everyone.

At Asset Residential we are proud to represent the property market for Birmingham and the surrounding locations for the simple reason that we believe it’s the best city in Britain and we’re passionate about helping people make our city their home whether you’re looking to buy or rent, and for every budget.

We’re sharing a few reasons why Birmingham is the best city to live in.


Who doesn’t love good food?

If you’re a foodie looking to expand your taste buds there is no better place than Birmingham to do so, we take our cuisine very seriously whilst providing thousands of options at affordable prices.

From street food to Michelin star restaurants, there is something for everyone to tackle your cravings.


Unlike London and Manchester who have soaring house prices in their central areas, Birmingham’s housing market is much more affordable depending on your lifestyle choices.

Of course, it will be more expensive to live in the central locations, but is a fraction of the cost compared to living in central London.


There is always something to do in Birmingham with entertainment for all ages, but if you’re looking for a thriving night life in particular from your city, Birmingham is a fantastic place to go.

From late night shopping to musicals to restaurants and bars, our city offers numerous options to make sure you’re never bored.


Birmingham is slap bang in the middle of London and Manchester with a 90 minute commute either way, meaning you can still work in the big city without the expense of living there.

The city has fantastic transport links whether you want to drive or commute via the train, Grand Central station offers trains to London almost every 15 minutes on weekdays and more often than not will take you less than two hours.


No need to hop on a plane to enjoy the canals of Venice as Birmingham has more canals than the Italian city, so why not hop on one of our boats and soak up the sights of historic architecture for a fraction of a plane ticket.

If you are interested in relocating to Birmingham, our friendly team can help you find the perfect location to call home in central Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
