The market in Glasgow South Side remains strong and there is no doubt that it is a seller’s market due to the lack of stock available. There are certainly plenty of willing buyers, significant competition, an aggressive selling price and in many cases a sales figures ten to fifteen percent over the Home Report valuation.
In the third quarter of last year, Glasgow continued a positive run, with the value of properties changing hands rising to over half a billion pounds, a year on year increase of almost 14%.
The general attitude continues to be positive, and viewing numbers and offers are increasing daily as we go forward in 2018. As we expected the market will continue to pick up pace with a significant number of properties coming to the market in traditionally popular spring months which should generate plenty of interest and a high number of sales.
In Glasgow, average prices have risen on the previous year, with market conditions remaining strong which coincide with Scotland reporting a ten year high in the number of property transactions.
Properties up to the value of £400,000 continue to do well and seem to be receiving the most viewing requests and interest, and as ever there is always a strong demand for project properties that require work.
It is an ideal time for first time buyers to get on the property ladder with mortgage lenders also having a greater confidence which has been shown in their appetite to lend. This is providing fierce competition which can only be good for mortgage deals for buyers, and provides further encouragement for the local market in the year ahead.
The west end of Glasgow rental market continues to go from strength to strength as we enter 2018, with demand from tenants continuing to outstrip supply.
The New Year sees the market building from an already strong position, with Glasgow having finished 2017 achieving an average rent higher than the national average. The city bucked the national trend, with the country seeing negative annual growth in Q3 continuing into Q4, 0.7% down year on year.
As we enter the Spring market, there will continue to be 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 at the end of 2017 doesn’t appear to have had a significant impact on the market. The activity we see through 2018 may tell us more.

Jordanhill is an affluent area in the West End of Glasgow. It is one of the most sought after places to settle down in the West End and is popular amongst both families and single buyers.

We had lost confidence in our previous estate agent but due to Gillian Coutts helpful and professional approach we felt in good hands with Aberdein Considine.
