Scottish Home Buyers Thin on the Ground

I was disappointed to read a recent report by Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Scotland which showed that Scottish surveyors were among the most pessimistic in the UK when it came to activity in the housing market.  I do agree that there is still a problem in relation to mortgage finance, in particular for first time buyers.  However, I would report that Blackadders Property are continuing to show an increase in activity, both in listings, viewings and Under Offers.  I still stick with my prediction that 2012 will be a tough year but that from the summer onwards, we will start to see continued and sustained improvement.  I can report that the year has started off better than expected and I hope that this continues.  I will keep you advised of trends.
