The Inverurie market has continued strongly throughout 2018, after a positive end to 2017.
The market in the north east has certainly begun to experience some stability for the first time in a few years and with a slightly more positive outlook for the energy industry, this would give a welcome boost to the property market.
The beginning of the year has seen a healthy 25% increase in the number of website searches for the local area compared to the same time last year, which is definitely a positive sign of buyers intent.
Another sign of confidence is that many sellers have been in contact in to enquire about putting their house on the market.
We have seen the number of valuations increase on a daily basis, with sellers of all types of property contacting us for up to date market advice.
Viewing enquiries have remained strong, with particular focus on the middle market and there is no doubt buyers are keen to enter the market during the spring and summer months.
All types of flats ranging from below £100,000 up to £200,000 are moving a lot slower and there are also fewer buyers for property over £300,000. We anticipate the Inverurie market will remain strong throughout 2018, and there probably hasn’t been a better time to sell or buy in the last few years.
The rental market in Inverurie and surrounding area saw a relatively positive end to 2017 and it has continued to grow during the early part of 2018.
There is a strong demand for all types of property in the lettings market in the local area, however properties should be well presented, and in good repairable and clean condition to appeal at the viewing stage to attract initial interest.
One bedroom flats are priced around £500 per month and large detached villas often in excess of £1000 per month, and for these properties the market remains varied and active. There is always particular demand for property priced between £450 and £850 per month.
Viewing enquiries remain strong and as we enter the summer months we expect these numbers to hold.
Recent legislation changes in December 2017, with the introduction of the new Private Residential Tenancy has not materially affected the rental market, however it remains to be seen what longer term impact this will have through 2018 and beyond. There continues to be a demand for more rental properties and we’d be keen to speak with anyone looking to put their property on the market or landlords who require any guidance on the new legislative changes.
Inverurie is a prosperous Aberdeenshire town situated in the valley of River Don. Founded by David of Huntingdon, Earl of Garioch and great-great-grandfather of Robert the Bruce, it is locally known as the Capital of the Garioch. Inverurie is within a ten mile distance from the imposing hill of Bennachie and boasts many beautiful walking routes nearby. The town centre is triangular and dominated by the grand Town Hall built in 1862.
In the middle of ‘the square’ as it is known locally, is the Inverurie and District War Memorial, capped by a lone Gordon Highlander looking out over the town. Inverurie is an expanding and prosperous town with excellent road and rail links to the north and south including Aberdeen, Dyce, Huntly and Elgin.
There are several local primary schools and Inverurie Academy provides secondary education for older pupils. The town has an excellent health centre, a cottage hospital, several large supermarkets, a swimming pool and community centre.

Kintore is a small town and former royal burgh near Inverurie. It is situated between Aberdeen and Inverness on the banks of the River Don, and is bypassed by the A96 road. The name Kintore comes from the Gaelic, Ceann Tòrr. Ceann means the head, or the end, and Tòrr means a round hill, so the name signifies that the town was at the head or end of a round hill. This probably refers to Tuach Hill to the south of the town. Kintore’s population has been rapidly growing and it was named the fastest growing town in Scotland, with further development planned.
Kintore is strategically located just nine miles from Aberdeen International Airport and is the base for businesses in oil and gas support services, electronics, aviation and food and drink. There is a wide range of local amenities including shops, a post office, library and a hotel. The village also enjoys a stunning golf course with an attached clubhouse. There is an excellent primary school and secondary education is catered for nearby at Kemnay or Inverurie.
