Glasgow saw prices hold steady as we moved through the autumn months into winter, with high demand in the city benefiting sellers, who are achieving Home Report values and above.
Glasgow recorded the highest level of sales in Scotland in the third quarter of the year, with nearly 3,300 deals.
Average prices in Glasgow fell 1% in Q3 to £164,573 but there is no shortage of buyers or sellers with the total value of sales hitting £540 million.
Glasgow remains a magnet for new commercial developments and offices which in turns attracts employees, all of which has resulted in a sustained period of growth.
A critical shortage of Grade A office space, as well as an increase in high profile commercial property deals and developments are creating an environment in which an historic shortage of residential property may well drive up prices further.
The Southside continues to generate significant interest, with the markets in Shawlands, Langside, Cathcart, Pollokshields all extrnely busy. As ever, East Renfrewshire is proving popular with families, with sellers in Giffnock, Netherlee, Clarkston and Newton Mearns, achieving up to 20% over Home Report values.
There are buyers for all sections of the market, and we continue to see further activity from first time buyers, which is encouraging for the future.
It should be noted that most sellers are showing a preference to accept offers from buyers who are in a strong position either by having nothing to sell, or are already under offer or sold.
With an exit from the EU now a certainty at the end January the next few months will be difficult to predict. However, with thousands of mortgage deals available and relatively low interest rates it remains an ideal time to buy.
The rental sector in the Southside remains in good health and we’ve seen steady activity well into the final quarter of the year.
The latest figures from Citylets revealed that the average rent in Glasgow has now broken through the £800 mark for the first time, at £803, up 2.3% year on year.
The market is operating at a sustained and fast pace and it’s now taking an average of 27 days to let.
Leasing is certainly a popular option for many with average house prices in Glasgow seeing regular rises throughout 2019, and many properties coming to the market are enjoying the luxury of having several potential tenants making applications.
One bed properties were renting fastest at 22 days which is unchanged on the last year and 67% of homes were let within a month – the same as the Capital.
We have also seen a particular demand for two bedroom properties and this, together with the number of tenants outstripping supply, has been a key driver for the increase we have seen in monthly rents.
There continues to be strong demand for a range of properties of all sizes and styles, with tenants being able to secure a lease for a two bedroom flat for around £150 less than the cost of renting a similar property in the West End. With lower selling prices, landlords can normally expect a better yield from this location.
The months following the UK’s exit from the EU at the end of January will give a better indication of how this may impact the economy and levels of confidence but for the time being activity in Glasgow is robust and healthy, and Brexit aside, should remain so.
