Activity levels in the Westhill and Kingswells areas remained at a reasonable level during the last few months of the year in what is traditionally a quiet period for the market. Fewer properties have come on the market for sale and as a result, there has been increased interest in properties that have been on the market for some time.
With the start of a new year, we expect to see an increase in the new properties coming on the market together with an increase in buyers.
Large family homes which offer good value for money and are presented to a high standard are still being favoured and they are opting for properties which are ready to move into. We are also finding that rural/semi rural properties which offer unique features or are in desirable locations are attracting interest particularly if there is land included within the sale.
We have also seen encouraging results recently in the first time buyer and investor market with improvements in volume of sales of apartments within modern developments.
Our applicants and buyers in general are continuing to keep their options open in terms of considered areas which we are attributing to the benefits of the AWPR which will offer easier access North and South of the city.
With the volume of new properties coming on to the market decreasing, we anticipate that the following months will see interest in properties which have been on the market for a longer period continue to increase. There remains a high degree of uncertainty due to Brexit but as we enter the new year we expect a further increase in activity levels for both buying and selling.
The rental market locally has been quieter over the festive period with fewer new properties coming on the market and tenants opting to stay in their rental properties longer. However properties that are presented in good order and marketed at a realistic price are still attracting interest.
Smaller properties are being favoured at the moment with a shortage of 1-2 bedroom properties on the market. Family homes continue to be popular with tenants moving around the local area rather than coming to the area from elsewhere.
Over the next couple of months we would expect an increase in the number of tenants viewing leasing properties and as such, an increase in the applications received. We expect that this trend will continue into the new year and would hope to see new landlords marketing their properties for lease to satisfy the demand.

It offers an enviable range of community facilities including highly regarded primary and secondary schools, shopping centre, Costco and Tesco superstores, and local health centre. This thriving town is also renowned for its excellent lifestyle amenities such as the 18 hole golf course and swimming pool, hotels and restaurants.
The town has been acknowledged as Global Centre of Excellence in subsea engineering and offers excellent employment opportunities at the Westhill Commercial Estate and Arnhall Business Park. Westhill lies in the attractive Aberdeenshire countryside and boasts a perfect location, within easy commuting distance to the City of Aberdeen by dual carriageway. There is a regular bus service and the town is well placed for access to Dyce Airport, Inverurie, Banchory and Royal Deeside.
Kingswells is a much sought after community which lies to the west of Aberdeen. It is just a short drive from the city centre and there are regular buses running from the ‘Park and Ride’ facility. There is an excellent range of amenities within the village, including a pre-school nursery, primary school, community centre, a variety of local shops, and a health centre. The Fourmile House is located on the outskirts of Kingswells and is the perfect place for dinner and drinks.
The new Prime Four business park hosts a community of offices, leisure facilities including a gym and stunning communal areas. The park is located near the dual carriageway and offers many career opportunities for Kingswells residents and commuters. Additionally, the oil related offices at Westhill and Dyce are readily accessible by car and public transport.

From the purchase of the plot to the sale of the house, the team at the Ellon office helped make a difficult and stressful time much easier for us. We will certainly recommend Aberdein Considine in the future.
