The West End Micro Market is Ticking All the Boxes!

While the average house price of a property in Glasgow in July 2019 was £175,663, the vibrant and ever-popular West End of Glasgow is something of a property micro market with prices generally 33% higher than the Glasgow average. For example, the average price in Hyndland is £314,862, Dowanhill is £300,636 and Kelvingrove stands at £276,612.

The area continues to tick all the boxes when it comes to the fundamentals on most buyers’ wishlists – great schooling, a university campus, fabulous bars, restaurants  and independent boutiques, an exciting atmosphere, local parks and attractions and excellent transport links. 

Property for sale in the West End ranges from tenement flats to new build apartments to traditional period villas and semi detached family homes, ensuring that the demand consistently exceeds supply, with prime property prices often hitting or even exceeding the million pound mark. 

By choosing a local, specialist estate agent that has intimate knowledge of the nuances within Glasgow’s West End and who understands the fluctuations in supply and demand, you can rest easy knowing your property is with the West End experts. 

Recently here at Vanilla Square we secured sales on average 19% above home report value and secured a incredible 40% above home report for a property in Downhill. Sale times are within just two to four weeks  in the West End and most often we see competitive closing dates due to the ongoing shortage of properties in the area. 

Brexit seems to be making no impact on the Glasgow market as yet – there are currently buyers at all levels and we are seeng some remarkable sales achieved. Finnieston continues to be hugely popular which has generated a ripple effect into neighbouring Yorkhill where we recently secured a number of one bed sales close to £200,000, which was unheard of a few years ago. We also sold a two bed flat in Woodands selling shy of £300,000 and 2 bed flat in Ruthann Street, Downhill at £320,000.
