Key Findings:

  • Average house prices in 2018 are 6% higher than in 2017.
     
  • Overall, transaction levels have dropped back on 2017 levels with the most recent figures down 11% year-on-year.
     
  • Stock levels (defined by number of listings) in Edinburgh are up on 2017 by around 10%, unlocking chains and providing greater opportunities in the market.
     
  • Areas of prime housing have seen the greatest increase in stock levels as they take advantage of rising prices and pent-up demand after stalling in the wake of LBTT.
     
  • Concerns over Brexit are now becoming more prominent in the market for some buyers and sellers.
