Nicol Estate Agents – Property Highlights Posted: 28th July 2017

The housing market in East Renfrewshire had a very strong year so far and we believe the pace will continue all throughout 2017. In many local ares, we have seen a shortage of property with demand outstripping supply, resulting in more closing dates and premium prices been achieved, and in some cases, the highest prices achieved in many years. With strong competition among property buyers who are keen to secure 2, 3, 4 or 5 bedroom properties in the area, East Renfrewshire has the highest average property price in Scotland at £242,003*, rising 6.4% in 2016 and the trend clearly continues well into this year.

Building on the success of our Newton Mearns office and the continued demand for our services in and around Clarkston, Busby, Carmunnock, Thorntonhall, Muirend and Netherlee areas, we are very proud to announce the opening of our brand new office in Clarkston at the end of August.
