The Ayrshire property market continued to perform exceptionally well throughout the year as strong demand led to heightened competition between buyers. The average selling price increased by 11.8 per cent compared with 2020 and one property sold in five days.
The average selling price of properties sold by Galbraith in Ayrshire this year was £438,446.
Jake Shaw-Tan of the Galbraith agency team in Ayr, said: “The Ayrshire property market has performed exceptionally well this year, with many areas that may previously not have proved so popular now becoming most attractive to buyers. This trend has been fuelled with many still working from home and commuting boundaries effectively being extended, as well as those buyers seeking a change of lifestyle.
“Buyers have been coming down from Glasgow, attracted by the rural way of life, and English buyers have been continuing to appreciate the relative value for money and amount of space property in Ayrshire offers. This has certainly driven the high levels of competition in the market.
“Rural properties remain in high demand especially when paired with land and we have sold a number of equestrian properties this year with many keen to have their horses out of livery and at home in their own private set up. Land sales have also been remarkably strong, whether it be for forestry purposes or amenity land.”
