Market activity in the final quarter of 2021 in and around Peterhead continued to be busy although, as usual, December does slow down a little.
There continues to be high demand in the usual areas. Two to three bed ex local authority or similar size properties ranging from around £100,000 to £170,000 are most popular. If in excellent condition, they do tend to fly off the shelf.
The slightly larger properties up to the £250,000 level will also generally sell well, especially if prices are keen and again, if the property is well presented.
There remains demand for rural properties from both local buyers and buyers coming into the area including from England which has helped to keep prices at a good level.
There is still an appetite for new build houses and there are several developments in the area, often with deals to be had from the developer for the buyer.
With a range of mortgage deals available and interest rates remaining low, this is an ideal time to think about getting on the housing ladder for the first time or exploring the chance to move to a larger property.
As pretty much all restrictions are removed and the economy beginning to open up, we could be looking at a busy spring market.
Peterhead and the surrounding market has a healthy turnaround of rental properties which continued into the 4th quarter of 2021. Those in good condition and realistically priced are usually snapped up quickly. There are plenty enquiries still for properties to rent.
Smaller flats and houses, especially around the town centre, which are not in tip top condition can struggle a little, but again, at the right price, they will lease out.
Properties which are modern and presented well generally retain tenants’ much longer and command higher rents.
There is still a lack of stock due to the quick turnaround and there is always a need for new properties to bring to the lease market.
Demand continues to be high and we remain positive the leasing market will be another vibrant one over the next quarter.
