Clydebank Property Market Update – Spring 2019

Our team in Clydebank is currently reporting fantastic levels of activity on various price brackets – as well as the odd celebrity sighting, this spring, It is definitely raining with offers with buyers competing for limited available stock and Hugh Jackman has been recently spotted in a local chippy, so this sounds like a great season all around.

With a bit of respite from the news and affordable financing options available, we see fantastic levels of activity on various price brackets.

Our local team is registering great levels of interest from buyers currently looking for two or three bedroom end of terrace or semi-detached homes. Properties in this category come to the market and sell quickly with keen buyers competing over them. A prime example is this four bedroom detached villa on Lewis Crescent in Old Klipatrick that came to the market for offers over £254,995 and immediately sold, leaving many local buyers disappointed.

Further, the first time buyer and buy to let segment is also seeing good activity levels, especially for properties in good decorative order. Flats with eye-catching décor and in walk-in condition see good levels of interest so if you are thinking of selling, a bit of an investment wherever possible, might pay off in the level of interest raised and ultimately in the selling price achieved.

A good example in this category is this attractive, whitewashed home in Laurence Gardens, Drumchapel. Extensively upgraded by the vendors throughout,  this immaculate mid terraced villa came to the market at Offers Over £109,995, created quite a buzz on our social media and SOLD in less than two weeks.

A fast-moving property segment is the very low end of the market with investors looking to buy properties at the £40,000 price point or under because of the tax relief available. The buy-to-let LBTT rates for those who have owned property before are 0% for properties worth less than £40,0000. This type of property is fairly rare and as such gets quite a bit of interest. So get in touch with our team if you are thinking of selling, we will offer free valuation, advice and guidance.

And remember, we only get paid upon the successful sale of your home! So make sure you get in touch with us before paying a hefty fixed fee in advance!
