Scottish property portal ESPC has revealed the 10 most-viewed properties in Edinburgh and the Lothians on its website during April this year.
The majority of the top 10 properties were located in Edinburgh, hinting that buyers continue to be drawn to city living. Other popular properties spanned East Lothian and Midlothian, with a variety of home styles attracting interest from ESPC house hunters, from large Victorian villas to quaint country bungalows.
Eight of the top 10 Edinburgh and Lothians homes are ‘under offer’, highlighting the strength of the market despite it continuing to calm following years of high demand and high price growth due to the pandemic.
Paul Hilton, CEO of ESPC, said: “The top 10 most-viewed properties for April show us that many buyers are searching for larger, longer-term family homes that offer additional space and flexibility of use.”
1. 10 Boswall Road, Edinburgh
Racking up more than 18,000 views, this renovation project in the desirable Trinity area of Edinburgh took the top spot for April. The three-bedroom property is the most expensive on the list and although it needs modernising and upgrading, it has fantastic potential to be a spacious family home with its granny flat and extensive garden grounds.
