KEY FINDINGS

  • House prices are now rising across Scotland and particularly sharply in a number of key hot spots, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and West Lothian, where average price growth is 10% or more.
     
  • However, transaction levels are stagnant or falling in most of Scotland, with limited new stock coming onto the market. Rising demand combined with constrained supply is fuelling the price rises.
     
  • These rising prices have fed through into Scottish Government LBTT receipts now exceeding forecasts for the 2017-18 financial year (by 12%).
