As we approach the summer months, the market in the West End of Glasgow has continued to gather further momentum during the first four months of 2018.
There is a continued level of optimism with both multiple viewings and offers increasing daily. Substantial demand for all styles, in all areas of the West End coupled with the limited number of properties gracing the market has created substantial competition.
Most properties are reaching swift closing dates and, as a result, favourable sales figures can be ten to fifteen percent higher than the Home Report valuation.
As the market flourishes, and the positive word regarding excellent sales results filters throughout the West End community, we expect to see a significant increase in properties coming to the market, which should result in plenty more interest and a further rise in sales.
We anticipate that properties up to around £350,000 will continue to remain attractive and should certainly be receiving the most viewing requests and interest.
It’s also a fantastic time for first time buyers to begin exploring opportunities to buy, with our advisors reporting that many lenders are showing a greater confidence and a stronger appetite to lend. In light of higher prices being achieved for pristine, refurbished homes, there is also a strong demand for project properties offered at lesser prices to reflect the degree of refurbishment, love and attention required.
With properties in Glasgow continuing to be in great demand, and selling times reported to be 21% faster than 2017, the time is surely right to bring a property to market in the West End.
The west end of Glasgow rental market continues to go from strength to strength as we enter Q2 with demand from tenants continuing to outstrip supply.
The Glasgow rental market reached another significant milestone in it’s PRS history in Q1 with average rents rising 1.2% YOY to reach £749 & bypassing the Aberdeen average.
There is still a higher demand for furnished accommodation, with the West End market also having a reputation as a bohemian area, attracting students and professionals alike.
There has always been a strong demand for a wide range of properties in the local area, with prices ranging from £600 for a one bedroom flat to in excess of £1000 per month for 3 to 4 bedroom properties.
At the moment viewing enquiries remain robust, and the introduction of the Private Residential Tenancy doesn’t appear to have had a significant impact on the market. The activity we see through 2018 may tell us more.
