Homebuyers are on the move

The current pandemic created a shift in the behaviour of homebuyers and the areas they are looking to move to. Families seek more rural, country, village, and coastal locations, while first-time buyers return to city properties as the lockdown eases.

Many families tend to look for more space indoors and outdoors, with room to grow, ample gardens and green surroundings. Two and three bedroom homes seem to be high in demand according to property portals such as Zoopla and Rightmove have seen a growth in city dwellings from first-time buyers.

Glasgow is just one of the cities experiencing increases, where we have seen the demand for our newly opened Chryston development in Glasgow. With a mix of three, four and five bedroom homes, there’s plenty to choose from.

Many locations have seen significant demand for four and five bedroom homes, and in line with that, our four bedroom detached bungalows were first to sell out at our Haddington development in our current release.

While recent years for homebuyers have shown a desire to move to quieter locations, this is not so appealing to first-time buyers over the past year. Many estate agents are recording early signs of an upturn in city locations from first-time buyers. As the high street starts to re-open, the buzz of the city centre is drawing people back in.

Our two, three and four bedroom homes at Stirling City is a short walk away from the city centre, and we plan to develop apartments at this location in the months ahead.

Whether you’re a growing family looking for a greener rural location, empty nesters wanting a home to retire into or a city lover looking for the buzz, we’ve got great locations across central Scotland to choose from.
