Across Lothian, West Lothian remains one of the top areas for value, with an average price between April and June of £236,036. This compares to a price of £285,729 in Edinburgh and £281,547 in East Lothian.
Demand is continuing to grow as we approach Autumn, and with lockdown restrictions almost removed we could well see this pattern continue over the coming months.
The rentals market in West Lothian maintained a healthy level of activity during the first half of the year and this has continued into the third quarter.

Demand continues to exceed supply and with lockdown restrictions pretty much gone, and with the economy beginning to grow again, the rental market looks as if it will remain busy.
The latest figures from Citylets revealed that average rent in West Lothian was up 13% YOY at £736, with average Time To Let down a substantial 20 days to 18 days.
