Although the bright lights of the big city might have once seemed appealing, there comes a time in most people's lives when we consider a move to somewhere a little more peaceful or remote - but this doesn't have to mean a drastic switch to countryside living. By moving just a little outside of the city, to the suburbs or the nearest town, it is possible you will get to enjoy the best of both worlds.

From excellent transport links to flourishing community spirit, we bring you some reasons why an escape from the city might be the right move for you.

Lower House Prices

If you are finding that you are being pushed out of the city due to sky rocketing rental prices, consider moving just a little outside the city to cut costs and for a chance to get more bang for your buck.

Larger Living Spaces

Living in the city means you will no doubt be paying quite a lot for a small space that is no doubt devoid of a garden. By considering moving out of the centre, you will immediately get more for your money in terms of size and outdoor space. If you are living in central Birmingham, explore our houses to rent in Sutton Coldfield to see the potential that lies in wait outside of the city.

A Sense of Community

Living in the city can sometimes be a lonely experience. It is easy to remain anonymous as you navigate the streets and public transport with your head buried in your phone, but in smaller towns, villages and suburbs, you will find that community spirit thrives.


On the flipside of living somewhere with a strong community spirit, living outside the city will also provide much more privacy for you and your family. Wave goodbye to apartment blocks and tight building spaces and say hello to ample room for space.

Cost of Living

In addition to lower rental prices, your actual cost of living will be lower than when living in the city. With less money spent on transport, plus cheaper food and drink places on offer, you will have plenty more cash in your pocket to make your house a home.

Peace of Mind

With lower crime rates outside of most city centres, you can rest assured that your neighbourhood will be far safer than when living in the city centre.

If you are living in central Birmingham and are looking for a quieter life combined with convenient links into the city, take a look at our houses and flats to rent in Sutton Coldfield and contact us today.
