Following an extremely busy period during the autumn and winter months where property sales continued to rise, this pattern continued in the early weeks and months of 2021.
In many cases the availability of low interest rates were driving these sales, with people moving out of the rental sector and making a decision to purchase a new home.
This level of rising demand meant that properties arriving on the market were being snapped up in no time, leaving little time for stock to be replenished. Within the West End, always a popular location, a one-bedroom tenement flat in Hyndland might achieve a sale price over £240,000 – about a 30% increase on the previous two years.
At the moment we find that some vendors are slightly concerned about putting their property on the market as they may be making themselves temporarily homeless given the shortage of properties to buy – in addition, the short-term rental supply market has also been in great demand and again, levels of stock are on the short side.
For anyone looking to sell, now would be the ideal time, especially as restrictions begin to ease and the economy looks to get back to some form of normality.
Starting to explore the market now could well make 2021 a year to remember for the right reasons.
After an extremely busy rental sector in the West End last year, the first quarter of 2021 has remained busy, with demand still high in many areas.
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.
The latest figures show rents in Glasgow rose 5.7% to stand at £848 on average with a TTL of just 20 days. 75% of properties to rent in Glasgow let within a month.
There remains a shortage of available stock so now would be good time to explore the market if you’re thinking about renting out a property.
