ESPC’s Annual Review


2015 was a positive year for those selling their properties, and it was the first year since the crash that the market shifted in favour of the seller. Sellers could now put their property up for sale with more confidence that they could meet their Home Report valuation and sell it in a faster time according to the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre.

The average selling price in east central Scotland increased by 5.6% in 2015, compared with 2014, although there were peaks and troughs as we saw a rocket in house prices in the first quarter, as a result of Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT).
