Relatively slow house price growth in Scotland benefits first-time buyers
The latest House Price Index from Your Move released 17th March headlined ‘Scottish house prices inching higher‘.
Average house prices in Scotland edged up 0.1% in January and grew 1.5% annually.
The report states: Higher value properties and first time buyers drive transactions and prices.
Christine Campbell, Your Move managing director in Scotland, said: “Relatively slow house price growth in Scotland is proving a blessing for first-time buyers. The early indications are that they’re using the opportunity to get on the ladder, helping to sustain transaction numbers.
“It will be interesting to see how talks of another Scottish referendum play out, and whether or not it has an impact on buyer and seller appetite to make a move now, or indeed, in the future.”
