After a fairly active property market throughout 2018, we experienced an extremely busy December with sales up by 27% on the same time period in 2017, despite the continued political and economic uncertainty. New instructions also increased by 25% giving us a local market share of 20% which is the highest we’ve seen since our Stirling office opened.
Demand for properties in all areas is still very high with closing dates being achieved on most sales especially family homes, particularly three, four and five bedroom villas.
The Stirling and Clackmannanshire markets are driven mainly by families seeking excellent schooling (both primary and secondary), a wealth of shops, restaurants and convenient transport links. For this reason demand for properties between £100,000 and £500,000 in and around Stirling, Cambusbarron, Dunblane and Bridge of Allan outstrips supply.
We fully expect the market to continue in a positive and confident manner as we move into the start of 2019 and beyond. Regardless of the economic circumstances, people will still want and need to move, whether job relocating, expanding families or first time buyers, and we remain optimistic about the prospects for 2019.
There is a vibrant rental market in Stirling driven by a cross section of interested parties from students looking for flats in and around the city centre to professional couples and families having sold and awaiting new properties to purchase coming to the market.
The market was strong throughout 2018 and the final three months of the year, traditionally a quieter time, remained steady.
We are now experiencing demand from people who have sold their home and seeking short term lets until they find a property to buy. This is a change from the norm with high demand for 2, 3, and 4 bedroom villas renting within a matter of days.
Demand for traditional and modern flats in the city peaks and troughs throughout the year depending on the volume of students and tourists, especially during the Spring months, we expect this trend to continue.
Stirling is on the doorstep of major attractions such as the Trossachs Country Park, Stirling Castle and Bannockburn, scene of the famous battle, all of which are a magnet for visitors to the area.
The city also benefits from having easy accessibility to Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as a bustling city centre especially during the summer months where there is a very cosmopolitan culture.
One and two bedroom flats range in price from £400 to £600 per month, with a modern flat in the city, Dunblane and Bridge of Allan attracting rents from £700 to £900 per month.
Larger detached family homes, depending on the area, can range in price from £900 to £1500.
Stirling is a vibrant city, world famous for its impressive castle but offering many other buildings of national importance and historical interest. The city boasts an excellent range of facilities including city centre shops, edge of town retailers, business amenities, restaurants, pubs, cafes, museums, art galleries, sporting clubs and leisure facilities. The commuter links from Stirling are impressive with the M9 to Edinburgh, M80 to Glasgow and A9 to the cities of the north. There is a main line rail station linking to all these destinations.
Edinburgh and Glasgow are within driving distance of Stirling, offering an excellent mix of business, leisure, shopping and cultural amenities. Additionally, Edinburgh and Glasgow international airports are easily accessible by road.
