A record-breaking February for Scottish Property Centre Shawlands demonstrated the continued strength of the Glasgow property market.
As well as bringing more properties to market than in the same period of any previous year, we also sold more.
February was our busiest month for sales since May 2017, providing further evidence that the political and economic uncertainty over Brexit is failing to deter home buyers in the city.
Properties are also moving at records speeds – the average time, from placing homes on the market to accepting an offer, since the start of January is 9.6 days with 93% of properties selling for over the Home Report value.
Since January 1, we’ve earned a combined £129,542 over home report valuations for our clients.
Notable successes included the sale of not one but three flats in Cartside Street, Battlefield in 3, 10 and 13 days, respectively. The properties sold for a total of £32,801 over the combined home report values.
Other wins included the sale of a two bedroom flat in Silverfir Street, Gorbals and a one bedroom flat in Burnfield Gardens, Giffnock, both within four days.
A three bedroom villa in Kings Park Avenue, Kings Park sold within 12 days for in excess of £220,000, some £35,000 over the home report value while another three bedroom home in Leithland Road, Pollok was sold within 10 days, again for in excess of the home report value.
We also got off to a flyer in March with two closing dates on the 1st of the month for a two bedroom property in Sinclair Drive, Battlefield and a three bedroom flat in Keir Street, Pollokshields. Exceptional results for both properties, with delighted clients receiving a combined £37,849 over the home report value!
We have also seen our busiest ever start to the year for property lettings.
Since the start of January, we have placed 17 new tenants in properties with several more rental properties coming onto the market shortly.
During the same period, we have registered 1,003 new applicants to our database of buyers and tenants, conducted 660 viewings and received 177 offers on our properties for sale.
