Buying in St. Andrews
St Andrews, sitting on Scotland’s east coast, is a historic gem in the historic Kingdom of Fife and a fantastic place to live. For its size, the town has a fascinating past, a ruined castle, stunning medieval streets and gorgeous sandstone buildings, not to mention it is the world-famous Home of Golf.
St. Andrews is also known for its historic university, founded in 1413, which is the third-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university plays an integral part of the town, both economically and culturally, and during term time students make up approximately one-third of the town’s population.
The town centre is filled with exciting things to see and do, as well as having plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy. St. Andrews also has 10 fantastic golf courses to choose from including the renowned Old Course, unmissable if you are a keen golfer. The setting is superb on the coast, the long sandy West Sands Beach being the location for the opening scenes in the film, ‘Chariots of Fire’.
Because of the unique aspects of the town, property and property prices tend to remain vibrant and strong even when the residential market is generally turbulent elsewhere. The Larger houses down the Scores with golf and sea views command a particularly top-end price but there are also plenty family homes and also small flats in the area too which are perfect starter homes or investments for the student populous.
As of March 2020, the average price of a property in St. Andrews stands at £320,539 which represents a decrease of 0.99% on the previous year and a 0.21% decrease since December of 2019. In terms of property types, flats in St. Andrews sold for an average of £309,330 and houses for £306,064.
