Home    Glasgow rents continue to rise


The rising popularity of Glasgow as a modern city to live in never fails to make us smile. It has always been known as a very metropolitan city with thousands of people enjoying the food, drinks, and entertainment that the city has to offer. With so many businesses also calling Glasgow their home, it is perhaps unsurprising to realise that the demand and cost of rent in this thriving city have continued to rise.

That is good news for landlords!


Returns for Landlords

We always like to maximise returns for our landlords and many are happy in the knowledge that rents continue to rise in the city. The last few months of 2015 were busier that we expected and busier than the tail end of 2014. This indicates that the private rental sector is still in rude health.

Average rents in 2015 were 4.2% higher in Glasgow than in 2014 which compares with 2% for Scotland as a whole. These increases will however be likely offset by increased costs associated with onerous regulation such as the provision of smoke and heat detection.

The average time to let property has also fallen across Glasgow. A typical one bed flat taking 18 days to let, 4 days quicker than in 2014 and faster than the Scottish average of 25 days. In the prime areas of G12, G11, G3 and G1 where we concentrate our resources, time to let is even quicker still, typically within a few days with tenants more often than not being secured within the first round of viewings.
