The Spring market in Stirling has burst into life, with sales in January up 15%, 10% in February and a staggering 25% in March.
Whilst the uncertainty flowing from the Brexit situation doesn’t yet appear to have affected confidence, there may be a slight softening on market conditions as we move through the year, and above the £500,000- £600,000 level where LBTT is creating an element of hesitation among some buyers.
The central belt is a highly attractive area for family buyers with excellent schooling, public transport facilities including the new electrification of the main train line from Glasgow and Edinburgh and very good shopping facilities in the city centre.
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. Demand is outstripping supply with family homes in and around Stirling and Clackmannanshire. You would expect to pay anything from £200,000-£400,000 for a good quality property in these areas.
We expect the market to continue in a positive and confident manner as we move further into 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 the year ahead.
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 Spring market has bounced into life as far as the rental market is concerned. As a university and tourist city, there has been a healthy uptake of city centre flats for students, and an increase in popularity of Airbnb for tourists visiting the central belt.
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 two, three, and four bedroom villas, all renting within a matter of days.
The excellent local amenities and transport links are a major consideration for families who are seeking value for money when renting and prepared to travel to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
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, and 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.
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.
