After a strong first quarter of the year, the late Spring and early Summer market has continued to blossom, with sales in the second three months of the year rising by double figures.
Despite the uncertainty which Brexit brings, there would appear to be an attitude in the market place that what people don’t understand might not affect them.
Demand is certainly outstripping 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.
There has been a slight softening on market conditions, and viewers above the £500,000- £600,000 level where the LBTT is creating an element of hesitation for 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.
Brexit aside, we fully expect the market to continue in a positive and confident manner as we move further into 2019. Regardless of the political and economic circumstances, people will still want and need to move, whether job relocating, expanding families or first time buyers.
The first quarter was a busy one in Stirling, and there continued to be a vibrant rental market through the second three months of the year.
It’s mainly 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 waiting on new properties to purchase coming to the market.
Demand for traditional and modern flats in the city peaks and troughs throughout the year depending on the volume of students especially through the months of March and April.
Stirling is on the doorstep of major attractions such as the Trossachs Country Park, Stirling Castle and Bannockburn, scene of the famous battle, and as we enter the Spring period, tourist traffic, especially from the Easter months onwards, is exceptionally high.
The city also benefits from having easy accessibility to Glasgow and Edinburgh, and demand is strong 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.
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.

The service we received from Scott Brown and the rest of the team was excellent. They made everything simple, easy and hassle free which we greatly appreciated. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Aberdein Considine in the future.
