The market in West Lothian has seen excellent growth in terms of value and selling time over the last few months and this continued into the final part of 2018.
With more and more people being priced out of the Edinburgh market, and with excellent transport links, the villages and towns of West Lothian present an ideal opportunity for people to get more for their money.
Broxburn, Uphall, Livingston and Bathgate are all doing particularly well with many properties selling in weeks, sometimes days, and closing dates starting to become a norm. We do not see any change to the market with a lack of stock, particularly houses, being the main issue.
We have a number of registered buyers on our database, mainly looking for 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses throughout the region and many ready to go as soon as they have found the right house.
The West Lothian rental market enjoyed a busy final three months of 2018 and it remained buoyant into 2019, with a lack of stock remaining problematic. Smaller properties are still proving proving popular, with good returns and a quick turnaround becoming the norm in the area once more.
According to end of year figures released from Citylets, 2018 saw the price of a one bedroom property fall by 0.4% to £488 but two bedroom properties have risen by 1.2% to £613. The biggest rise is in 4 bedroom properties with a large increase of 34.2% to an average of £1102.
The average rental value in West Lothian sits at £699, which shows a year on year increase of 5.1%
As we look forward to the Spring market, if demand continues, we are optimistic that if properties coming onto the letting market in the area are well-presented, in good repairable, clean condition to appeal at the viewing stage, and rental prices are kept to a reasonable level, they will let quickly.
West Lothian is ideally placed between Edinburgh and Glasgow with excellent transport links to both major cities. Substantial new-build developments in Winchburgh, Bathgate,
