Buying your first property is an intimidating prospect. It's got to tick a lot of boxes and still be affordable enough to keep you and your bank account happy.
Recently this property came on the market in the Brunswick area of Edinburgh that is ideal for a first time buyer.
Now this may not appeal to everyone, but being close to the city centre means that you're within walking distance of most parts of the city and if not within walking distance, then you're best positioned for plenty of public transport options to get to where you need to be.
Just off Easter Road lies this 1 bed property which conveniently has a bus stop just a short walk from its front door.
There's nothing worse than viewing a flat and finding out that it has everything you're looking for, but nowhere to store those pogs and other useless thing that you've had for years but just can't throw away.
This property has plenty of space for all those things and more with built in storage in the bedroom complete with shelving and a hanging rail. The open plan kitchen area is fitted with base and wall unit and a cupboard housing the fridge and washing machine.
Having some outdoor space to have a BBQ or just enjoy the sunshine on those summer days is a great way to escape the fast paced life of the city. Luckily this property has access to a shared garden to the rear giving you a place to kick back when the summer nights come around. Alternatively, you're only a short walk away from Montgomery Park, Royal Terrace Gardens; or for those who enjoy stunning views of the city, Calton Hill.
Finding your ideal first property can often be a struggle, especially if you have a limited budget to work with. That's why we think this property is perfect for those looking to get started.
On the market at offers over £132,500, this property gives you an opportunity to get on Edinburgh's property ladder whilst giving you all of the fantastic features listed above.
You also want to know that your investment is going to be worthwhile down the line should you look into selling up in future. The Edinburgh property market continues to show fantastic growth with city centre properties seeing on average a 9.5% increase in value compared to last year according to recent reports from ESPC.
