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.
The availability of 95% mortgages for Scottish buyers has been given a massive boost as a new round of housebuilders join the MI New Home initiative and more options for finance looking set to be available shortly. Like NewBuy in England, the scheme aims to help those with smaller deposits purchase a new home up to £250,000.
House-hunters buying a new build home in the Scottish Highlands will find the area offers a high standard of living, including excellent schools, fantastic leisure pursuits and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. From the vibrant buzz of Inverness to the tranquillity of rural villages and isolated crofts, there is something to suit everyone looking for a new home in the area.
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.
Scottish housebuilders have not ignored the rise in demand for eco-housing and a number of environmentally friendly new-build developments are popping up around the country.
With its mixture of city life and rural retreats, Grampian has it all. Home to the Cairngorms National Park, the largest national park in the country, and surrounded by dramatic coastline to the north and east, families are never stuck for something to do during the school holidays.
