Sales Market

The housing market in May continued to move at pace with sustained buyer demand and constrained supply putting sellers in pole position.

Although the volume of listings and sales in May was down compared to record breaking April levels, properties sold quickly and prices remained strong.  We sold 20 houses and 7 flats, with 3 bed houses accounting for 40% of overall sales. 

On average, each property attracted 7 viewings, with several receiving upwards of 10 and the right properties in the right locations typically selling in a matter of days.  The number of sales going to closing dates was up on April and we negotiated above asking price values for 89% of properties (6% more than in April).

With the pandemic placing a greater focus on the home and prompting households to review how and where they live, we are seeing an increase in buyers from other areas of the country, such as Edinburgh, which is also placing upwards pressure on prices.

Sellers who are in a position to put their properties on the market now will benefit from considerable pent-up buyer demand which is continuing into June.  There is also a significant number of potential buyers who have sold their properties and are temporarily living in rented accommodation until they find the right property to purchase.

Rental Market

The imbalance between demand and supply is also evident in the local rental market.  There is increased tenant demand across the board and the market is also moving very quickly, with significant demand for 3 and 4 bedroom houses and quality flats.  Feedback from viewers is that properties are being rented very quickly and there are many tenants struggling to find suitable properties.

We are seeing more people being forced into the rental market due to the economic effects of the pandemic and there are many sellers renting temporarily until they find the right property to buy. 

Notably, as with the sales market, we are receiving more enquiries from people looking to move into the area from other parts of Scotland, as well as from England.

"Great to deal with, nice people and on the ball. We had an ex-rental property to sell, and had to decide whether to 'love it' or 'list it' in it's current condition. Katie & Alan were great and understood our situation, we decided to try the property on the market and discussed a fair price for the 'list it' option. All went well and the property sold quickly. Can't thank them enough for their advice and support. Would definitely recommend this company and would use them again."

Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.  It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared.”Douglas McQuat (March 2024) – “This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.

"We put our property on the market with Premier just prior to lockdown but subsequently withdrew it. We were very happy with how Alan handled the situation at that time as well as the marketing. We originally went to them through the recommendation of a mortgage consultant.

We loved the Facebook countdown! The photography and virtual tour were first class. The photographer obviously took a great pride in her work and the results spoke for themselves.

You contacted people who had shown an interest in similar properties and we actually had 3 viewings booked before it was released. Bartek did wonderfully well in convincing the buyer what to offer.

The service was excellent in particular Bartek who showed potential buyers around and Alan who offered great advice on the deal.

This was our first move in 34yrs so we were very nervous but everything went quickly and well leaving us to only worry about the actual physical move.  Overall, we felt very pleased and relieved.

Would certainly recommend. Premier made the necessary processes easy and understandable. They also dealt with us as people not just a client, this made us feel so much better.

It was great to know that we were in the hands of people who cared."
