The market saw a steady close to 2021, with some healthy transaction numbers in the West End.
During the run up to Cop26, there was certainly a slowdown in property sales, with clients taking the opportunity to rent their homes out at significant levels, certainly more than in normal times.
The final quarter of the year is traditionally less hectic, and with Christmas not far away, as expected November and December saw transaction levels reduce somewhat.
Although Omicron also put a spanner in the works, serious sellers and buyers still had an appetite to strike some deals.
The West End will always be a vibrant haven for urban dwellers who like the bohemian and Glasgow culture, not to mention the professional investor for the student rental market.
The University plaza in Byres Road is continuing to be developed, and this will indeed prove positive for the market as the year unfolds.
The rental market in the West End is continuing to prove to be extremely busy with demand still high in many areas during the fourth quarter.
There still remains a shortage of available stock whilst demand is still very strong which has seen rents rise & the time to let drop sharply. This is fantastic for landlords but also put pressure on tenants due to the high demand for each property.
There continued to be great interest in larger properties, possibly driven by tenants searching for more homeworking office space as well as gardens, and close proximity to other outdoor spaces such as parks.
As a university city, there also has been increased demand for one & two beds from students where previously they would have been expected to be in halls or sharing HMOs with other students.
We are seeing an increase of new instructions from seasoned investor landlords who are keen to capitalise on the current market.

I used Aberdein Considine after having them recommended to me. They sorted out my pension but also pointed out other areas I hadn't even considered and which were equally important.
