Market Performance

Strong price growth The average house price in the West End in 2022 has risen by 27% since 2019 to £258,000, which is 28% higher than the Glasgow average of just over £200,000.

The West End house sales market was worth almost £840m in 2022, with over 3,255 sales. Sales volumes are relatively unchanged since before the pandemic in 2019, but price growth has meant that the value of property sold is up 27% in the last three years (from £662m).

G12 had the highest average price of the West End postcode districts, but there is evidence of displaced demand from the West End now driving price growth in areas such as Finnieston, Anniesland and Scotstoun.
