Its official – property investors are looking away from London. Could Park Hall become the place they look instead?
Fair enough, a Walsall suburb might not be the first place that springs to mind for property investors, but it offers them a considerable amount.
Take this property on Flinkford Close, for example.

What area should I choose for my next buy to let in Walsall?
You might be a landlord who is new to the area of Walsall, or someone looking to dip their toe in the waters of buy to let investments. Either way, you will likely be wondering what the best areas of Walsall are for landlords to be buying in. We have Rushall Pelsall Pleck Bloxwich Goscote Bescot and the every popular Aldridge.
The truth of the matter is that there is no ideal location as such. The best places to buy are those that match up with your target market tenant, along with your ideal investment. Renting is an increasingly more popular option today than it ever was, so it is not only people on low incomes that are looking for homes to rent, higher ends of the market are too. Properties are not on the market these days very long, unless something’s wrong, with the asking price, poor marketing, or maybe something more to do with the area.
Obviously if you are buying a house to let out to a family, it is going to be important that there is a good selection of schools nearby, and public transport links and other local amenities. Likewise, if you are looking to rent to those who might do business in Birmingham, choosing places with the best rail links and motorway access is sensible too. The issues of internet connections, and does the property have gas central heating or the lesser attractive storage heating, will have a positive or negative view re the interested parties.
Statistics show that the W1 area of Walsall has more than two and a half times the national average of people in social housing, and a large proportion in privately rented homes compared with bought. The area of W2 has more people in private rentals than W1, and a bit less in social housing. If you go to the more upmarket area of W5, statistics show that it has more than the national average of home owners (with and without a mortgage) and a smaller percentage of renters. The quantity of Detached houses in WS5 is 3284 with 3792 Semi-detached Houses.
Most landlords might be drawn to the W1 or W2 area where the demand for social housing is high and a private landlord can cash in on this known shortage, however as has been said, there are people looking to rent in more upmarket areas of Walsall too.
