From family homes to luxury apartments - see the properties on offer in Birmingham for £150,000 - the same price as a studio bolt hole in London

City life can be expensive, especially when it comes to the property market.

But those who are looking at relocating from London to Birmingham might be pleasantly surprised at what money can buy them compared to soaring prices in the capital.

In London, a £150K budget can get you a studio apartment and Notting Hill.

But Birmingham prices can bag you character-filled houses in the leafy suburbs and trendy apartments in the heart of the city centre for the same price.

And with regeneration work taking place to inject new life into the city, more Michelin Star restaurants than any city outside of London, plus the Commonwealth Games in 2022, Birmingham has so much to offer for city lovers.

While London might be home to some of the biggest stars, there are plenty of famous faces that call Birmingham home - from football plays to TV stars and musicians.

To give you an idea of just what your money can buy with a budget of £150,000, we’ve rounded up five properties across the city that’ll take a London bolt-hole to the next level.
