Ayr

The historic town of Ayr, birthplace of Robert Burns in 1759 and home to the world famous birthplace museum dedicated to him, is a former Royal Burgh situated on the west coast of Ayrshire. Famous for Championship Golf Courses and two of Scotland’s most iconic buildings in Culzean Castle and the new Turnberry Hotel Resort nearby, which has hosted the British Open Golf championship on four occasions, Ayr was recognised as the second healthiest town centre in the United Kingdom by the Royal Society for Public Health in 2014.  Ayr Harbour image: Tim Niblett, Flickr.

Ayrshire, Sales Trends Oct-Dec 2016

As 2016 drew to a close we can look back at what was a record year for our Ayr branch. With more property sales, higher viewing numbers and more closing dates than ever before, reflecting the fact that their seemed to be renewed confidence in the Ayrshire residential property sector. We entered the last quarter of the year in what is a traditionally a quieter time for the property market with continuing strong levels of sales with our Ayr branch recording 47 sales in the 3 month period, keeping up the momentum which we have built up throughout the year.

Viewing levels remained high showing a 10% rise over the same period last year. However the lack of quality housing stock meant that higher selling prices were being achieved for the right houses in the right locations.

We saw continued high demand for ex local authority 2 and 3 bedroom properties with many selling at or above their Home Report valuations. Modern semi-detached homes were also much sought after, two notable examples which we sold, were in Maple drive and ward road in Ayr, both exceptionally well presented properties and both selling within weeks of coming to market at or above their Home Report valuations. Bungalows, as always drew tremendous interest from buyers, an example of which was a 3 bedroom detached bungalow in Ayr road in Coylton which sold at a closing date achieving 6% above Home Report.

As mentioned earlier 2016 has truly been an excellent year with record sales levels for the branch, testament to the hard work and dedication of the Ayr team, delivering outstanding results for our customers, seven days a week.

We are all looking forward to 2017 and are confident that it is going to be another strong year for the Ayrshire property market. Our database has record numbers of registered buyers ready to move and we are actively looking for property to fulfil this demand.

At Clyde Property we always strive to improve our customer experience and are constantly investing in new innovative ways to improve our service. With our new customer friendly web site with real time live chat, You Tube quarterly market reports, professional photography and drone video footage, state of the art led window displays in addition to our 7 day opening with our branches available until 8.00pm every day. So If you are thinking of selling your property, why not give us a call for a professional market appraisal and we can demonstrate how we can definitely add value.

Ayrshire, Letting Trends Oct-Dec 2016

The letting market remained steady as 2016 drew to a close, bucking the traditional trend for the time of year. There continued to be strong competition for properties, leaving landlords in a prime position with faster letting times and increased rents.

The most desirable properties are still two bedroom flats and three or four bedroom family homes, with rental values ranging from £550 to £1000.

A property in Fellhill Street, Ayr, a three bedroom mid- terrace with an asking price of £575, achieved £650 due to overwhelming demand. And a four bedroom bungalow in Blackburn Drive , Ayr, was tenanted within a week of coming onto the market, achieving a rental of £995. The landlord was thrilled to have a tenant only days before Christmas and praised our dedicated teamwork.

As we reflect on 2016, it is clear that political uncertainty, especially surrounding Brexit, did not affect the local property market. In fact, it could have helped to fuel the surge in demand for properties, as we saw demand clearly outstripping supply.

With this shortage of housing, high rental values are likely to remain and we can confidently state that the buy- to- let market still offers excellent returns in both rentals and capital growth.

The new year began on a very positive note and we predict a buoyant market as we move towards Spring and Summer. We have a healthy database of registered tenants looking to move now, and we can help new and existing landlords to invest wisely for the best possible outcome. So whether tenant or landlord, you can rely on us for a friendly, professional and comprehensive service.

"Amazingly efficient, professional and friendly service"

One of my rental flats languished on the books of another agent for three and a half months. I switched to Clyde. Less than 3 hours after the flat appeared on their website they had a viewing and within the week I had a excellent tenant. Amazingly efficient, professional and friendly service from Rachel and the team at Ayr office.
