Nicol Estate Agents Property Round-up, March 2017 Posted: 29th March 2017

The housing market in East Renfrewshire had a buoyant start this year and we believe this will continue 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.

Due to current market conditions, namely record-low interest rates and high mortgage approval numbers, this is an incredibly favourable time for any home owners looking to sell their property in East Renfrewshire. Take a look at some of the properties we have on offer at present in our monthly property round-up.

Calderwood Road, Newlands

Viewing is very much advised for this four bedroom semi-detached villa that sits full of character in a prime Newlands location.

Close to excellent schooling options and public transport links, there is shopping and dining in the neighbouring Southside areas of Shawlands and Giffnock.
