Q3 Update – Clyde Property Bearsden
The property market in Bearsden was buoyant before the UK went into lockdown – with a busy start to spring and what we believed would be an even busier summer ahead of us. However, lockdown put a stop to everyone’s moving plans and in the process, changed their priorities.
When the restrictions lifted at the end of June and we reopened for business, not only did we see pent up demand from those who were previously planning on proceeding with house sales, we also saw a raft of buyers and sellers wanting to move home following a re-evalaution of their work life balance. We saw people moving from the city to more suburban areas, looking for more space to accommodate home working and enhanced access to outside space.
Since we emerged from lockdown Bearsden has enjoyed an extremely buoyant quarter with:
- 84 sales
- 53 closing dates
- £28,126,293 in property sales value
Going forward, our goal is to get people moving whilst keeping the community as safe as possible. We are stringently following government guidelines. Our branch has dealt with literally hundreds of offers and at any given time a single viewing agent has navigated socially distanced, carefully managed, individual viewing appointments, at properties covering a geographical reach from Cumbernauld to Drymen for both our sales and letting portfolio.
Property sales to note:
85 Drymen Rd, Bearsden
We agreed an offer in excess of £100K over the Home Report value within 12 hours of first viewings. Transformed by the addition of a truly striking rear extension with floor to ceiling glass, an impeccably refurbished, four bedroom, detached villa with expansive, professionally landscaped, south-facing, rear gardens.
Garwhitter Drive, Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire
These neighbouring properties both generated closing dates within days of each other with 25 offers received between them.
Russell Drive, Bearsden
We agreed a sale within 24 hours from video & marketing alone for a significant figure above Home Report value. Originally built as the “Argyle style” by John Russell, this impressive, four bedroom home has been transformed by the addition of a stylish, two-storey extension and occupies an enviable corner position within one of Bearsden’s foremost addresses.
Croy Cunnigham, Killearn
This property was sold to an overseas buyer – from video, marketing and strong local agent knowledge and expertise – proving we can achieve property sales even in a global pandemic and national lockdown. Croy Cunningham Gate is an exclusive gated development of only five bespoke detached villas enjoying an idyllic riverside setting with panoramic views. The development enjoys a wonderful setting facing open countryside and each property will stretch the boundaries of architectural design finished in a combination of stone, glass, roughcast and timber, beneath a slate roof.
Hector Cottage, Bankers Brae, Balfron, Stirlingshire
Multiple offers were received at closing on this property which offers out of town living in a small community but within striking distance of Glasgow and Stirling – striking a chord with a lot of buyers at the moment. An impressive, five bedroom detached, one and a half storey bungalow set amidst expansive, lawned gardens and has been the happy family home of our clients for some 40 years.
