Coatbridge Is Scotland's Property Hotspot

Recommended Posts

When you read stories and facts like this you know there is a bubble. :lol:


Coatbridge is Scotland's property hotspot

A town which was in the running for the title of the most dismal in Scotland has been named Britain's property hotspot.

Coatbridge has seen a 36% rise in house prices over the last year, according to a survey by the Bank of Scotland. It is believed it is because the town is within commuting distance of both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

the real reason is only shitholes are affordable to working people now.Coatbridge is a shithole but because its that when anyone tries to get anywhere to get on the ldder they will go anywhere.

All the towns that have done well in increases at the end of the boom are all the places left that someone could still afford to buy in,

its the end game for sure

Ah, yes...sunny Coatbridge. When I lived in the area, the good burghers of Airdrie used to claim that all of the local Labour-controlled council funds were spent in Coatbridge, as Coatbridge is a "Celtic" town, and so were all the West of Scotland Labour Party. Coatbridge certainly didn't look like it had had millions of pounds of development thrown at it!

Isn't Coatbridge one of the corners of the "Buckfast Triangle", within which 80% of the output is consumed? :lol:
