Ripple Reaches Bonny Scotland

Recommended Posts

Well, well.... the land of ever rising house prices is starting to show annual falls -3.8% in Edinburgh!!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...ml/region12.stm

Nice one. Edinburgh has had a reputation for escaping the peaks and troughs of the market.

However, Scotland has been just as susceptible to this latest turn of the merry go-round (and still heading up outside of auld reekie). No escape this time!

Why have you ignored the most recent figure?

2.5% increase in the last quarter!

And? YOY -3.8%. Which means it was sitting at -6.3 before the august interest drop fanned the flames for a wee bit longer.

If you go by the smallest timeframe to spot a trend then you're heading for disaster. YoY is the one to look for.

Stirling -2.1%

Glasgow City -0.6%

Aberdeen City -2.7%

Falkirk -4.5%

Dundee City -0.3%

And yet people keep telling me that prices here in Aberdeen will just rise and the market is "hot" :lol:

Funny how the most recent figures ie the last quarter are excluded from your comments. Selective amnesia?

Stirling 7.3%

Glasgow City 4%

Aberdeen City 9.4%

Falkirk 3.3%

Dundee City 10.8%

I know that YOY is important, but the last quarters figures are surely an indication of the latest state of the market, and there is still a potential spring bounce to come!

All of the 32 SLA areas are showing an increase in the last quarter bar one.

Scottish Borders 20.1%

Perth and Kinross 15.8%

Aberdeenshire 10.1%

Highland 16.5%

Dumfries and Galloway 14%

East Ayrshire 19.8%

Shetland 23%

This is a sample from south to north of the country.

A 'dead cat bounce'........I think not.

I look forward to the spring bounce though. ;)

Theres no mystery to it. The thumbless yokels are finally surfing the house price wave which started off down south. When the last ripple dissipates they will land on their erses with a bump. :lol:

For the most part I am interested in Edinburgh. The town in which prices never fall! :D

From http://www.royalhouseofstewart.org.uk/news51.htm

So far, 1300 people employed in the Scottish computer related business have been made redundant within the past 3 weeks…

Round where I live, a couple of major, non computer, employers have shut down recently. The job exodus to china, india and the eastern block.

It's the lowest paid area of the country, but hpi continues unabated. Sustainable. I think not. Doooomed, We are all doooomed captain Manwearing.
