  1. Really sad to here these stories of loss. It's so f*cked up. You all should have been proved right but were screwed over. It does feel like the crash is right around the corner but it's felt like that for a while. Would recommend Glasgow for sure. Can get 5x what you would get in London and it's a better place to live IMHO. Close to some beautiful nature and scenery, lots of interesting things going on, nice buildings. Wouldn't worry about not being Scottish! Prices starting to shoot up now though

    Thought this might be of interest to a few people on here: 'Edinburgh’s “rampant” Airbnb issues have escalated, with the number of entire houses or flats now available to let in the city rocketing from 5,474 to 7,366 in the past 12 months.Read more at: https://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/edinburgh-s-rampant-airbnb-growth-hollowing-out-city-1-4849285' Goes a long way in explaining the massive gains in the last couple years IMO. I've found a flat I like i will probably just buy it. The mortgage will be significantly cheaper than rent would and I can lock in for 5 years. I still expect prices to fall next year but have had enough waiting.. Also, if prices are to increase any more then I will be priced out
  3. I got 15k from bomad and saved 35. Enough for Scotland. Lucky my work send me overseas for a couple years so that I could save otherwise there's no way

    Pretty nice ESPC report: https://espc.com/news/post/house-price-report-october-2018 "During this period, the number of homes coming to market increased by 10.9% annually The number of homes sold during this period decreased by 0.4% annually From August to October 2018, the median selling time of a property in east central Scotland was 20 days, which was 1 day slower than last year" 2% MOM drop in house prices for the city of edinburgh

    Anecdotal but spoke to a solicitor today how said that the market in Edinburgh has changed a lot recently. Wheras before there were around 10 people bidding / home now there is just a few

    https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/campaigners-joy-at-edinburgh-airbnb-ban-progress-1-481982 'Green MSP for the Lothians, Andy Wightman, successfully tabled an amendment to the Planning Bill, calling for property owners to need full planning consent in order to change a main residence into a short-term let property such as Airbnb.' Some good news in case anyone missed it
  7. DJ down 600 points! That's all of this year's gains erased.

    A lot more properties for sale than this time last year, almost back up to where we were a couple of years ago.

    Interesting that the price of flats is down last quarter and up only 3% annually. Also that sales volumes for flats in the city up 26% last quarter..

    Thanks Paul, nothing to get excited about then! Unless the number of properties for sale climbs a bit higher...

    Currently 2018 properties for sale on espc. Was hanging around 1800 a few months ago. Anybody know if this is normal for this time of year?? I would have expected number of properties to start decreasing this time of year..

    This is nice to see, but the opposite of what ESPC are saying.. Which Index is the more accurate??

    Looks like it went mental in Autumn but cooling off a bit now..? If I had the time I would like to go back a few years to see what kind of volatility is normal. Number of transactions is so low that I don't think these graphs tell us much tbh.
