The final quarter of the year surpassed most expectations, with a high volume of enquiries and viewings. Sales have increased by 20% in comparison to this time last year. Even in this period of political uncertainty buyer confidence remains strong.
The latest figures from Aberdein Considine’s Property Monitor revealed that property prices in the city rose 6% in the third quarter, with sales up 7.4%. The value of transactions rose 12.9% to £106 million.
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 an around Stirling, Cambusbarron, Dunblane and Bridge of Allan outstrips supply. 90% per cent of our properties have gone to closing date with multiple offers above Home Report valuation. It is not unusual for properties to achieve an offer within a matter of days.
Our register of prospective buyers grows on a daily basis as more people want to become informed of properties as soon they come to market.
With the UK’s exit from the EU imminent, it is of course difficult to predict the future, but the local market is in a healthy and robust condition and Brexit aside, we would hope for a busy few weeks and months ahead.
There continues to be a buoyant 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.
As expected, as we moved through the final three months of the year there was a slight drop off in demand. The thought of finding a month’s rent and deposit is likely to have stretched tenants with Christmas round the corner.
Demand for traditional and modern flats in the city peaks and troughs throughout the year depending on the volume of students and tourists during the especially hotter summer months.
Stirling is on the doorstep of major attractions such as the Trossachs Country Park, Stirling Castle and Bannockburn, scene of the famous battle. The city also benefits from having easy accessibility to Glasgow and Edinburgh and 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.
It is difficult to predict with any accuracy what impact the imminent exit from the EU will have on the market but that aside, we’d still expect activity to rise over the next few weeks and months.
Stirling is a vibrant city, world famous for its impressive castle but offering many other buildings of national importance and historical interest.
