Activity in the property market in Westhill has remained steady over the last few months following a rise in the volume of enquiries, viewings and offers at the start of the year.
Throughout the traditionally busy spring market, there has been a rise in the volume of properties coming onto the market providing purchasers with a good selection of available properties to pick from. Whilst modern flats and the lower end of the market remains slow, the mid and upper end of the market has been performing better than in previous years.
Buyers exploring the Westhill and Kingswells areas are typically favouring properties which are reasonably priced, offering value for money and are ready to move into, over the competition.
With property prices being lower than in recent years, confidence in the local economy growing and interest rates remaining low, now is an excellent time to purchase in the area before prices begin to rise.
The early part of 2018 has shown a definite increase in the lettings market in Westhill with viewing requests, tenancy applications and lets.
Family sized properties that have been maintained to a high standard, are well decorated and in a good, clean condition are receiving viewing requests and subsequently offers. However, the market still seems to be quieter for smaller, one and two bedroom properties. This could be due to the prices being lower on bigger properties meaning people can afford to offer on the larger homes.
The rental market in Alford has remained extremely quiet with no significant improvement in the New Year. Even with lower rental values there are minimal viewing requests being received so we are encouraging landlords to carry out any repairs or decoration that we think may make their properties more desirable. It may simply be that properties with a shorter commute time than Alford are now more attainable due to price reductions so people are sticking nearer to the City.
Kingswells leasing market has remained steady throughout the past few months with most of the properties being family homes that are let in a very timely manner.
It is unlikely that the leasing market in Westhill, Alford and Kingswells will return to the higher prices received back in 2014, but rental prices do seem to have stabilised which is an encouraging sign for the future.

The team at the Ellon office were fantastic at keeping me up to date with relevant information throughout the process of selling my house. The communication was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend Aberdein Considine to family and friends. I’m totally convinced that it was as a result of the team’s professionalism and advice that my house went "under offer" six days from the point of it going up for sale!
