Prices ended 2018 at an increased level after a busy pre-Christmas period and have remained steady in the first few months of 2019.
During this first quarter of the year we’ve noticed that many First Time Buyers are now ready to take the plunge and enter the market tempted in part by the wide range of affordable mortgage deals currently available.
This has steadily pushed prices higher at the bottom end of the market, allowing sellers to move to the next level. We are regularly achieving sales at prices over the home report value with many going to closing dates owing to the competition for the limited stock available.
Looking ahead to the next quarter and the Spring period we would expect an influx of parents who will be looking for University accommodation for their children. This makes for a fabulous time for vendors to bring these properties to market and tap into that additional level of demand.
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.
The west end of Glasgow rental market continues to go from strength to strength with demand from tenants continuing to outstrip supply.
The first quarter of 2019 was again a very busy period with high levels of applicants for every property.
There has been plenty of activity throughout the city especially for one and two bedroom properties and this, together with the number of tenants exceeding supply, is the primary driver 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 £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 and the Spring market, we expect the market to continue to grow.
