Let a Letting Agent with over 30 years experience give you the reasons why
- The average property price in Glasgow is only £125,000, significantly lower than many other key cities, especially London where the average cost is now £475,000. This makes buying more affordable and less risky
- Glasgow provides attractive rentals yields that are more
than 50% higher than London – average returns
in Glasgow of 6.6% vs London yields of just 4%
Low purchase cost, high rental returns and opportunity for capital growth
- Glasgow has not seen the same levels of capital growth
as other UK cities over the last few years and many
commentators are predicting that Glasgow is now
set to catch-up. Indeed with Glasgow house prices up
only 2.9% over the last 3 years (vs average UK price growth
of 15.8% and London price growth of 36.9%) there is plenty
of scope for future capital growth
