Having had a steady first half of 2019 prices have certainly moved in an upward direction, with an influx of new buyers coming to Glasgow.
The increase in demand has steadily pushed prices higher, across all levels of the market.
A slight price fall of 1.7% in the first three months of the year definitely looks like a blip, with a 3% year on year rise in average prices in the second quarter at £159,218.
We are regularly achieving sales at prices over the Home Report value, with many continuing to progress to closing dates given the competition of limited stock available.
This increased level of buyer demand suggests that anyone thinking of selling now should seriously consider having their home valued with the aim of bringing the property to market and achieving a selling price over their initial expectations.
Glasgow remains a magnet for new commercial developments and offices, all of which attracts employees, resulting in sustained periods of growth.
With sale volumes and values in the city up 6.6% and 9.9% respectively, Brexit uncertainty doesn’t appear to be a stalling demand.
With “ready, willing and able” purchasers actively looking to buy a property, the current climate would indicate now might be an ideal time for vendors to make the decision to sell and tap into that additional level of demand.
The west end of Glasgow rental market continues to go from strength to strength with demand from tenants continuing to outstrip supply.
The third quarter of 2019 was again a very busy period with high levels of applicants for every property. Glasgow remains a magnet for new commercial developments and offices which in turns attracts employees, all of which has resulted in a sustained period of demand.
There is a high level of interest throughout the city especially for one to three bedroom properties and this, together with the number of tenants exceeding supply, are the primary drivers for the increase in monthly rents.
The latest figures from Citylets revealed that rentals rose 4.7% year on year to £799 and although the overall TTL slowed by two days to 29 days, one beds were renting at the quickest rate at 26 days, and 62% of rentals let within a month.
There remains strong demand for a wide range of properties in the local area, with prices ranging from £700 for a one bedroom flat to in excess of £1000 per month for 3 to 4 bedroom properties.
As we move further into 2019, Brexit uncertainty aside, we expect the market to maintain its momentum.
