Market activity in and around Peterhead continued at a fair pace during the third quarter.
Demand is still high in the usual areas, with two to three bed ex local authority or similar size properties ranging from about £100,000 to £170,000 most popular.
Properties up to the £250,000 mark will also generally sell well, especially if prices are keen and the property is well presented.
Rural properties are increasing in popularity as well, although larger houses in the higher price ranges can be a hit or a miss depending on area and condition.
These are still up against the new build houses which remain very appealing to buyers and there are several developments in the area.
With a huge number of mortgage deals around 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 autumn market.
The leasing market around Peterhead is still very lively and there continues to be healthy demand for rental properties during the third quarter of the year.
If the rent is realistic and the home is in good condition, properties are letting quickly.
The smaller flats and houses around town which are not quite as well presented as others can struggle a little, but again, at the right price, they will lease out.
As ever, those homes which are modern and presented well are also likely to retain tenants’ longer term and command higher rents, but, in short, there is a significant shortage of all types of rental properties on the market.
We are always looking for new properties to bring to the lease market so if this is something you are considering or have a property to lease out, get in touch.
With demand still high and the economy opening up, the next few months could see a busy lettings market.
