The late autumn and early winter market continue to see strong demand for middle market homes, and there is every sign this good demand will continue throughout the first half of 2019. The autumn saw strong sales activity across most price bands in Perth and Kinross, but less demand below the £100,000 and above the £300,000 level. We are seeing increasing demand for property inspections and valuations early in January as potential sellers of all types of property contacting us for advice on the 2019 market.
Viewing enquiries have also remained strong, with particular focus on the middle market. Bungalows continue to sell extremely well and the current lack of this type of property coming to the market should ensure bungalow sellers see good sales throughout 2019.
Although there are fewer buyers for property over £300,000, there is always a demand for property in the PH1 and PH2 areas. These areas offer easy access to transport links, schools and other services. There is also a demand for new build developments as Bellway, Stephen Homes, Springfield Homes and Barratt Scotland amongst others, are actively developing sites in and around Perth. This new build activity creates related sales elsewhere locally and further afield, further underpinning the confidence buyers and sellers have in the Perth market.
The Perth and Kinross market should remain strong throughout 2019 with a healthy, stable market for both buyers and sellers. This stability reinforces the view that 2019 will be a good year to consider buy or sell residential property in the Fair City.
The Perth rental market performed well during late Autumn and early Winter. There remains strong demand for all types of property in this market and stock levels are currently low. Demand is currently outstripping supply, particularly for 2 bedroom city centre flats, or modern flats with parking. Some of these types of properties are seeing a five fold increase in enquiries compared to earlier last year.
For one bedroom flats priced around £400, to large detached villas priced often in excess of £1000 per month, the rental market remains varied and active. Both furnished and unfurnished property continues to see demand. There is always a particular demand for property priced between £400 and £700 per month in all areas of Perth and Kinross.
Viewing enquiries in Perth have been extremely strong over the Festive period, and we expect these numbers to remain very strong during the first half of 2019. We do not expect to see any change in the positive conditions of the rental market for the coming months.
The Fair City enjoys an enviable position on the banks of the River Tay, Scotland’s longest river. Due to its location, the city is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands.’ Following the decline of the whisky industry locally, the city's economy has now diversified to include insurance and banking. Today, Perth serves as a retail centre for the surrounding area.
Perth offers something for everyone, and although it is a peaceful and quiet place to live the city is known for its lively nightlife, with dozens of bars and nightclubs. Perth has a rich historical tapestry, with museums and theatres providing excellent cultural opportunities.
The town has a strong economy with leading development in renewable energy, health and transport. Perth is a transport hub to the rest of Scotland, with good road and rail links north to Inverness and Aberdeen and south to Edinburgh and Glasgow. With a choice of schools and excellent shopping and leisure amenities, as well as a professional football team, Perth blends the convenience of big city living with the charm and outdoor opportunities of a smaller town.
Crieff is a bustling town nestled amid some of the most beautiful scenery in Perthshire. Just 18 miles from Perth, Crieff has long been a hub for tourism. Every year, the Crieff Highland Games unite the community as competitors from all over the world flock to take part in traditional events such as tossing the caber.
The town boasts a variety of impressive Edwardian and Victorian property and two primary schools, with secondary schools in Crieff and in Perth. With impressive leisure and retail amenities, the town is also conveniently located, with both Glasgow and Edinburgh airports just an hour’s drive away and Stirling within easy commuting distance.
The attractive market town of Kinross is located just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish lowlands. Kinross was declared a nature reserve in 1964 and the loch attracts around 20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. The town has become known for these more unusual residents, with a sculpture of a goose in flight at the entrance to the town welcoming the thousands of geese who spend winter in the area.
The area is perfect for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, with miles of walking and cycling trails. If golfing or fishing is your thing, then Kinross is a fantastic place to live with several golf courses and lakes dotted around the land. History buffs also have plenty to enjoy here, as funding has been approved to restore the impressive Kinross Town Hall. Kinross offers an abundance of local shops and restaurants and good leisure amenities, with many lovely cafes where you can enjoy a bite to eat. The town is located just minutes away from the M90 and provides excellent transport links both north and south.
The pretty town of Pitlochry is near enough to Perth to be convenient but far enough to give a real feel of living in a small, country community. The town is within easy reach of both Glasgow and Edinburgh and has been a bustling mountain resort since the railways arrived in 1863. The cultural scene is strong here; perhaps the best known is the Pitlochry Festival Theatre, offering year-round entertainment for tourists and residents alike.
For such a small town, the range of restaurants, cafes and shops is truly remarkable and there is a diverse range of retail outlets ranging from small, individual stores to larger, national outlets. Surrounded by wonderful countryside, it is perfect for weekends walking, cycling, or just spotting wildlife; deer, red squirrels and even golden eagles can be found here.
