Activity in the Westhill market has remained steady over the last few months. There has been an improvement in the market for family homes priced between £250k and £350k which offer value for money, are spacious and are well presented.
We have seen some excellent sales recently and an increase in our properties selling at competitive closing date situations.
The lower end of the market continues to be challenging. In particular the demand for one and two bed flats in Westhill is low with first time buyers favouring small terrace and semi-detached houses.
Our applicants, and buyers in general, are looking at a far wider search area than in previous times.
We are noticing that areas south and north of the city are often being considered along with Westhill and Kingswells. We are attributing this to the near completion of the AWPC and the improvement in access north and south of Aberdeen this will bring.
There are a number of properties currently for sale in the Kingswells area and with several new build developments close by, there is high competition resulting in slower sales. This being said, stand out properties in show home condition and competitively priced are doing well.
With property prices being lower than in recent years, confidence in the local economy growing and interest rates remaining relatively low, now is an excellent time to purchase in the area before prices begin to rise.
Westhill is currently experiencing an increase in activity in the lettings market with a marked improvement in demand for all types of property. Family homes in particular are performing well, which is very encouraging and represents an increase in families relocating to the area. Rental values seem to be holding steady following a prolonged decline over the last three years.
Similarly the Kingswells leasing market has remained steady throughout the past few months with well-presented family homes attracting a good level of interest. Further afield in Alford, the rental market is still quiet. There is a lack of demand for rental properties in the area with tenants benefitting from lower rental prices in Aberdeen and favouring a shorter commute to the city.
Originally known as the ‘Garden Suburb’ of Aberdeen, Westhill has matured into a desirable and vibrant family town. 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.
Alford is a thriving village that enjoys a host of excellent amenities from primary and secondary schooling to recreational outlets including a golf course, a dry ski slope and the Haughton Country Park. The village maintains a good range of shops and restaurants, a library and health centre. It is a great location for access to the Lecht ski resort and is within easy commuting distance from Aberdeen, Dyce, Kingswells, Westhill and Inverurie.
The village is home to a modern community campus, which opened in 2015. This exciting new build project is sited along Greystone Road and encompasses Alford Primary School and Alford Academy and provides a community hub for the local area. The campus has a large swimming pool, theatre, dance studio, sports hall and gymnasium, community café, library and fantastic new learning spaces for all. On top of this, there are several events hosted regularly throughout Alford, including an arts and handicrafts group, walking groups, and both gardening and film clubs.
