Compared with other parts of Scotland, the Edinburgh property market has been remarkably buoyant for the last few years. Edinburgh is full of desirable property and recent changes to the LBTT have not dampened activity. There is a general consensus among those in the industry that is a great time to sell and if you are in need of some extra persuasion here are 5 genuine reasons to sell your Edinburgh property:
1.Shortage of Good Quality Property on The Market
There is nothing as exciting as a great property coming onto the market. The problem is there just aren’t enough! There is always a buzz of activity when a quality property goes up for sale in Edinburgh.
2.Lots of buyers
At Blair Cadell we receive constant enquiries about properties on and coming onto market from potential buyers. If you are thinking about selling your property take heart that there are plenty of willing buyers out there.
3.Competitive Mortgage Rates
Talk to our IFA and you will soon discover that lenders are offering very competitive rates at the moment. Lenders have got more money and are competing with each other again meaning that rates are historically low.
4. More first time buyers in the market
With government schemes like help to buy, good lending rates and improved employment in Scotland, there has been a surge in first time buyers. More first time buyers brings movement to the whole market and is a good sign for sellers of different types of property.
5. Over 55s can access pension funds
Due to recent changes in UK legislation, over 55s can now access hitherto untouched pension funds. With this extra cash many are investing in properties to let. This is a new part of the market that we haven’t seen before. Great news for sellers!
