Located in the heart of the UK, just nine miles from Birmingham, Solihull is the gateway to the West Midlands, and one of the region's most prosperous towns. It is blessed with a thriving local economy and offers a beguiling blend of old and new buildings, with some lovely outlying hamlets and villages.
Its Latin motto is Urbs in Rure, or Town in Country, and that still holds true today, with Solihull offering convenient access to glorious countryside and vibrant city alike.
Property in Solihull consists of a variety of different types of housing, but in particular there are a large number of semis and detached town houses, with few terraces. Many of the area's larger developments were built in the 1950s and 1960s.
And while house prices in Solihull are higher than elsewhere in the region, it's a great area in which to live, work and play, so property here will always hold its value.
