Following a flurry of sales activity towards the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018, there is currently a shortage of homes to buy in Glasgow’s West End, leading to increased competition amongst buyers.
It’s a climate we are seeing across the country, with many surveyors responding to the latest RICS survey reporting that prices are increasing due to a general lack of available stock. The situation in the West End Glasgow has been described as a ‘pinch point’, however, with there being little in the way of new build schemes creating more available homes.
At Clyde Property, we have certainly witnessed this first-hand, seeing properties looked after by our West End branch coming onto the market and offers accepted in short succession, in what is certainly a seller’s market. It’s a great opportunity to sell, particularly if you are relocating out with the area, though we do have West End properties coming onto our books all the time, as homeowners seize this opportunity.
For example, at the top of the market, this stunning 1920’s 5-bed end of terrace townhouse in Kelvinside came on our books recently to be snapped up very quickly at offers over £1.1 million, charming it’s new owners with beautiful original features, substantially sized bedrooms, garden space, billiards room, home gym and office spaces.
Rare to the market, one of just a few of these detached stone villas in Jordanhill is now under offer, a special property in that it’s unlikely you’ll find such extensive rear garden space anywhere in the area, also offering 6 bedrooms and a cellar that offers potential to extend.
