The property market in Stirling slowed slightly during the final quarter of last year following what was an unprecedented period during the summer and autumn months, but activity certainly picked up as we moved through the early weeks and months of 2021.
We’ve been recording a high level of sales and instructions, particularly around the family markets in Stirling, Cambusbarron and Torbrex, and this level of interest continued into the first quarter.
There is huge demand for three, four and five bedroom family homes across Stirling, and the lack of supply is driving up values. The vast majority of homes are going to closing dates with multiple offers.
With properties being snapped up quickly, the stock of available homes is not being replenished as normal and this has meant potential buyers becoming apprehensive about putting their own property on the market for fear of not being able to buy another suitable home.
The market is likely to see a further uplift in activity as we approach the traditionally busy Spring market, particularly as lockdown restrictions ease and we see some return to normality.
There is undoubtedly a need for family homes across all areas and if you are considering a move, or even a first time buy, now could be the ideal time to explore the market.
The normally busy letting market in Stirling had eased during the final quarter of last year, however there have been signs that this is beginning to pick up in the first three months of 2021.
The traditional high demand from students had understandably fallen however with restrictions now easing, there are some indications that students are again looking to secure accommodation for the next academic year which is a good sign.
Given the current uncertain economic situation some landlords may still be concerned that a tenant can qualify for a let, move in and then lose their jobs and move back out very quickly and this could explain fewer available rental properties.
In terms of rental patterns, demand levels across the city have dropped from flats in the city centre to the more rural properties.
We continue to find properties with home working and outside space in high demand across the market. Houses tend to generate a healthy level of interest and multiple offers after a matter of days’ on the market, which continues to show the shift in demand due to the lockdowns.
Buying and selling in Stirling has certainly been the more popular option since the summer, and city family home rentals have dropped somewhat as the sales market has improved.
Typical rents across Stirling range from £450- £600 for one bedroom flats, to £ 900-£1,200 for detached and semi-detached homes.
Despite the current sluggish nature of the rental market, we now have some reasons for optimism with the vaccination programme well under way, and the prospect of restrictions easing further over the next couple of months.
Any major improvement on the ability to travel and mix could certainly have a positive impact on the local market, particularly in terms on the student population.

I was delighted with the service I received from Terri Doyle. She was a pleasure to work with and seemed to do everything she could to sell my property. It was refreshing to be at the receiving end of a customer-focused estate agent! Looking forward to working with Aberdein Considine again.
