Heralding a positive start to the year for the Inverness' property market, Scottish developer Robertson Homes has revealed it made seven sales during the first three weeks of January at its award winning Westercraigs development in the city.
It is well known that residents of the Scottish Highlands enjoy a high quality of life and therefore, it's unsurprising that the area is popular with first-time buyers, those moving up the property ladder and downsizers alike. House-hunters looking to find a new home in the Highlands have a varied selection of properties to choose from.
Recent figures released by Highland Solicitors Property Centre (HSPC) show that average house prices in the Highlands were down by 1.8% in 2012 with the average house price at £163,012. However, Robertson Homes seem to be bucking the downward trend with their Hamilton Gardens development. There are only two chances to secure a plot at the Elgin site as all the other properties have been snapped up.
With the traditionally quiet season for property sales now upon us, many shrewd homebuyers see this as the perfect time to try and negotiate a property price discount. But while most developers, in light of the existing housing shortage, are unwilling to offer property price reductions, others are prepared to get into the spirit of giving!
Last week saw the launch of Robertson Homes' brand new view home in Elgin. Taken from the housebuilder's prestigious Boutique collection of new homes, the ‘Ivory' has been given a minimalist feel allowing viewers to envisage their own interior design ideas.
Lanarkshire is a fantastic place for families to settle. Excellent transport links make the commute to Glasgow city centre fairly effortless and both Edinburgh and Stirling are also within an hour's drive. The region offers plenty to keep both children and adults entertained, with facilities such as Strathclyde Country Park, the Time Capsule swimming and ice skating complex, an indoor skate park, golf courses and plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on hand. A number of historical sites also make for fun family visits, including the New Lanark World Heritage Site and Strathaven Castle.
With its breathtaking scenery and rich heritage, it's not difficult to see why the Highlands is a desirable place to live. The area takes in a huge amount of rural land, while the city of Inverness provides lots of amenities for shoppers and social butterflies as well as a host of work opportunities.
Robertson Homes is enjoying massive success at the latest phase of its Westercraigs development.
Leading Scottish housebuilder Robertson Homes is grabbing the attention of house hunters north of the border with a host of new deals across its developments. With a portfolio of diverse new homes in Scotland, in popular destinations such as Ayrshire, Dumfries and New Stevenston, the company is starting 2012 with some very eye-catching offers.
