With the fine weather we have been enjoying during the summer of 2018 ensuring properties look at their best, and with a continued demand for all styles and sizes, in all areas of the West End, there is an incredibly competitive spirit as fewer properties actually grace the market.
As a consequence, it’s the majority of properties which are reaching swift closing dates and, as a result, favourable sales figures continue to be reaching ten to fifteen percent higher than their Home Report valuations.
As prices flourish and the positive word regarding excellent sales results filters throughout the West End community, we would hope to see a significant increase in properties coming to the market, which should result in plenty more interest and a rise in sales activity over the next few months, further lifting average sale prices.
We do anticipate that properties between £175,000 and £300,000 will continue to remain attractive to active buyers and this style and size of property should certainly be receiving the most viewing requests and interest from those moving up-the-ladder.
It’s also a fantastic time for first time buyers to explore opportunities to buy, with our advisors reporting that many lenders are still confident, and with a strong appetite to lend. In light of higher prices being achieved for pristine, refurbished homes, there is still a strong demand for project properties offered at lesser prices to reflect the degree of refurbishment, love and attention required although, do be warned that this procedure is becoming more popular and consequently prices for this style are also starting to rise based upon the speculative value of the ‘finished article’.
With properties in the West End continuing to be in great demand, the time is right to think about coming to the market, carrying out viewings and securing a sale and / or purchase before Christmas.
The west end of Glasgow rental market continues to go from strength to strength with demand from tenants continuing to outstrip supply. Q2 has been a very busy time in the market with high levels of applicants for every property.
There has been plenty of activity throughout the city especially for 2 bedroom properties and this, highlighted with the number of tenants exceeding supply, will no doubt be the main reason for the increase we have seen in monthly rents.
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.
