Scottish Property Market Continues To Prosper

CKD Galbraith supports the findings of today's Register of Scotland quarterly housing price statistics (April June 2015) and can report a successful second quarter with an increase in the volume of sales achieved compared to the first quarter of the year.

Registers of Scotland has reported that from April to June this year, the total volume of sales registered across Scotland was 24,685, an increase of 1.6% on the same quarter the previous year. This is the highest volume of sales for this quarter since quarter one of 2008/09.

Simon Brown, partner and head of residential sales at CKD Galbraith, said:

"Research conducted by our firm over the second quarter of the year presents an encouraging picture for the Scottish property market as a whole which has witnessed steady growth over the first half of 2015. Our sales for the firm collectively were up 4.65% over this period compared to the first quarter of 2015."

"The market has improved somewhat post-referendum and we have witnessed a surge in viewings being conducted, the numbers of prospective buyers registering with us and the number of properties coming onto the market all highlighting a real boost in market confidence both from sellers and buyers alike. We believe this will continue as the market gains additional momentum after the summer holiday period."
