Buying in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its long reputation for being so – as well as the truly world-class cultural life – have long made it a desirable place to live and work. And Scotland’s capital is booming today like never before. Combined with its close neighbours Midlothian and East Lothian, the city of Edinburgh makes up the fastest growing area in Scotland, as buyers and renters are increasingly attracted by its charms.

With desirable property types ranging from Georgian townhouses in the Old Town, Victorian Villas in Comely Bank to traditional tenements on Leith Walk, and demand continually outstripping supply, Edinburgh’s property market remains bouyant. Homes typically always competition from multiple buyers and will sell in excess of the home report value. As of January 2024, Average house prices in Edinburgh stood at £347,193, though there is considerable difference in sold prices among property types in Edinburgh over the last 12 months. Detached homes for example have commanded an average of £547,466; semi-detached homes £411,401; terraced homes £395,646, and flats £277,404.

Properties can, of course, vary significantly in price, even when outwardly similar or occupying the same street. This is down to myriad factors, from internal conditions to local planning permissions. This is just one reason why a competent and thorough home report, carried out by a trusted chartered surveyor, is essential for ensuring a property goes for what it’s worth.
