Edinburgh and Lothians for sale: The 10 most viewed properties on the ESPC website in March 2023

East Lothian’s popularity in the property market shows no sign of waning

Scottish property portal ESPC has revealed the 10 most-viewed properties in Edinburgh and the Lothians on its website during March 2023.

Properties in the top 10 list were located in a range of areas from the desirable region of East Lothian to the suburbs of Edinburgh. In terms of property type, nine of the top 10 homes in March had at least three bedrooms, demonstrating that demand is still strong for larger homes, which the ESPC says it would expect given the rise in hybrid working over the last three years.

With a range of schools, transport and amenities, plus an idyllic setting between the Capital, the coast and the countryside, East Lothian’s popularity shows no signs of waning with ESPC’s active home buyers. Half of the top 10 properties in March were located here.

Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, said: “This rundown of our most-popular homes on ESPC is an interesting look at the requirements of homebuyers across East Central Scotland, and highlights what buyers are looking for in the current climate. Larger family homes have been particularly popular with buyers in March 2023 with six homes on the top 10 list having four or five bedrooms. These homes will stand the test of time as they offer versatile living options to accommodate family living and hybrid working.

“Half of the homes on the top 10 list were located in East Lothian which offers a great alternative for buyers searching for homes outside of Edinburgh, as it offers excellent transport links, local amenities, green spaces and a sense of community, as well as a more affordable price tag for a range of buyers. Six out of the ten homes in the list are now ‘under offer’, highlighting the continued strength of the market.
