Warners Solicitors & Estate Agents

A growing sense of realism among house buyers and sellers in Scotland is helping to encourage recovery in the property market, according to Edinburgh’s leading property solicitor.

Warners – the number one firm in the ESPC – believes that homebuyers and sellers have become more realistic about their expectations over house prices and the state of the market, which has led to an increase in property sales and listings across the country.

The firm highlights figures revealed by the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre (ESPC), which show that property sales and listings have been growing year-on-year for the past three months.

The stats show that in February a total of 709 new properties were listed in Edinburgh (up 125% on 2009 levels), while in March there were 1011 new properties listed (up 91.5% on 2009), and in April there were 997 new property listings (up 97%).
