  1. Thread's dead. Property market very much alive! http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/average-monthly-rent-in-aberdeen-over-1-000-1-3381171 http://www.scotsman.com/news/scotland/top-stories/aberdeen-sees-rise-in-disposable-income-1-3375733

  3. Try offering below the asking price for a rental flat in Aberdeen. You won't get very far these days: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-24548616
  4. Cheap to rent compared to where? London? Even a small one-bedroom flat in Torry will cost about £500pcm to rent these days. Forget about getting a 2-bedroom flat for less than £700 - £750pcm if you're lucky. Aberdeen is not stagnating. Both purchase prices and rental prices are increasing.

  7. Latest quarterly report from the ASPC for the 2nd quarter of 2011. House prices in the Aberdeen area are up by an average of 8% compared to the 1st quarter: http://www.aspc.co.uk/Documents/HousePrices-2011Q2.pdf

  9. Close. The quarterly fall is 2.98%. There was a 5% average rise in house prices in 2010. http://www.aspc.co.uk/Documents/HousePrices-2010Q4.pdf
  10. If it wasn't for certain banks, the overall figure would be falling:
  11. Just wondering why someone who isn't going to buy a house is bothered about house prices? What difference does it make to you if they go up or down?
  12. Inverness? You mean Tesco town? This is what a proper city centre looks like, complete with indoor market: http://static.panoramio.com/photos/original/4418904.jpg http://cache.virtualtourist.com/2817489-Hugenot_Quarter-Cork.jpg http://img25.imageshack.us/i/cork7patrickst19lc.jpg/
  13. No, this (mid-September) is about the time the students start coming (back) to Aberdeen. FYI, the University of Aberdeen ran out of accommodation (halls/flats/houses) for its students in August. Since then, all Uni of Aberdeen students have had to look for private-sector accommodation. There are about 14,000 students at the University of Aberdeen, with about 7,000 full-time students at RGU. In all there are about 21,000 full-time students at the 2 Aberdeen universities, about 10% of the total city population. There's no shortage of students, just a shortage of accommodation for them.
  14. The figures I've quoted are for a mortgage which is currently available and which has an interest rate of 3%. All the rental figures quoted here never take inflation into account. If they don't why should my calculation take interest rate changes into account?
