CKD Galbraith supports today's Registers of Scotland's Quarterly House Price Statistical Report (April June 2013) and believes there is a real indication of heightened confidence in the Scottish property market.
Simon Brown, head of residential property at CKD Galbraith, said: "As a firm we have experienced heightening confidence in the Scottish property market with the volume of sales agreed being up 30% on the same period last year and double the number of viewings being conducted this quarter since the first quarter of 2013.
"There have been further encouraging signs this summer with the competitive closing date system making a comeback across the country and in particular in Edinburgh, Perthshire and Ayrshire, where a number of properties quickly achieved over asking prices.
"With a positive approach and sensible pricing we have seen more stability and confidence throughout the country this year - both buyers and sellers appear to be comfortable with where the market currently stands."
CKD Galbraith's sales teams operating across the whole of Scotland handled in excess of 400million worth of property (2012/13 financial year) ranging from cottages and conversions to country houses, farms and estates.
