Why Kidderminster is an ideal town for Buy to Let investors

Are you a Worcestershire property investor considering extending your portfolio? Or perhaps an aspiring landlord ready to buy your first buy-to-let property in the West Midlands? The most important factor to take into account when taking the leap is location. The area must be a great investment for yourself, but also a great home for your tenant.

Kidderminster is a large town situated in the Wyre Forest and is often chosen for its ability to provide everything family needs from great schools, shopping and entertainment and being a stones throw from some of the most beautiful countryside walks and trails in the Midlands.

Kidderminster is the largest town with three shopping centres, a retail park and numerous restaurants and café’s making it a superb choice for families.

The central Railway Station offers direct trains to the local cities of Birmingham and Worcester just a short half hour or so train ride away as well as links to London. The town is also is well connected for the motorway links, making the area an ideal spot for commuters.

Great schools aren’t hard to find in Kidderminster, with many primaries being a short walk away from the majority of town homes. This is a huge benefit for tenants with children. Make sure to ask your agent about school catchment areas when finding a suitable property.
