As we head into the Autumn and Winter seasons, despite the continued political and economic unrest, we are still experiencing strong consumer confidence in the market place, and increasingly there appears to be no such thing as traditional market trends in the local area.
Demand continues to outstrip supply in terms of semi or detached family homes anywhere in and around the city, and with closing dates now common place, we don’t envisage this changing in the near term.
The latest sales figures from the Aberdein Cosnidine Property Monitor revealed prices and broader activity have fallen slightly with average prices at £192,580. That said, demand for properties in all areas is still high with closing dates being achieved on most sales, especially family homes, but there reains a definite shortage of buyers above the £500,000 mark.
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. As a result, demand for properties between £100,000 and £500,000 in Stirling, Cambusbarron, Dunblane and Bridge of Allan is still healthy. There has also been a gradual rise in first time buyers to the area, attracted by ease of commuting to Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as comparatively lower prices for flats.
It is difficult predict what will happen over the next few months or how this will affect confidence and the market, but for the time being activity is at a level we would broadly expect.
There continues to be 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.
Demand for traditional and modern flats in the city tends to dip slightly in the Autumn, with students having already secured accommodation and much of the tourist trade reducing. Airbnb is very much on the up in the city around the Christmas period, and demand is high for short term lets in the city.
Families are still looking to secure six month to one year lets as they are on the lookout for new properties to buy in the Spring.
The city benefits from having easy accessibility to Glasgow and Edinburgh, and demand is robust throughout the year for three, four and five bedroom family homes.
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.
We are unsure what Brexit will bring to the rental market, but for the moment it remains reasonably solid.
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.

As someone who regards himself as being a sophisticated and experienced investor, I was somewhat skeptical as to what AC could offer me. However the firm has exceeded my expectation and have helped me in building a diversified portfolio completely in line with my risk profile.
